I have recently finished a sea queen and I took out the pins and filled the holes. In the past I once left a couple of pins In and I could always see the mark as It appeared raised. 😊 Good luck with the hll skins as I found It the most testing part of the build
HI Kriz thanks for your comments about sea queen Its nice when someone comments after loads of work. you say you are a novice but we all start somewhere and this was only my 2nd build. It took nearly 2 winters to complete and the build was good as aerokits are great quality and good Instructions. go for It 😊 you will never look back 😊
HI Alan thanks for nice comments I am pleased with the result. It Is my 1st power boat as I have only built sailing boats. The hull does look deep but think Its photo as It Is a standard kit. Thinking what to do next cheers roger
[Score: 5/10] 40"/4000g International One Metre - Comments: The I.O.M. Is a great boat to sail and mine Is getting on a bit and not very competative these days. Cost of new boats has become a very expensive so I am happy with mine.

Build was quite good but some of the fittings a bit naff. Looking now to finish cockpit now I have tried It.
HI dave I am currently looking to finish the cockpit but the bits that came with the kit were a bit naff. I have put a shelf In and created a door frame to the cabin. I am looking to put steering wheel , morse control and Instruments ,maybe a seat. I will post some more pics when complete.
