Kraken Update

Sending a couple of pics of my boatproject "Kraken", a houseboat-ish craft for sheltered waters. Have made some testruns, and it works ok, very stable and slow, but a more powerful outboard motor is at the top of my list to santa, my old 2,5 hp Tohatsu is clearly to small. Hull is aluminium, cabin mainly plywood and fir. The windowframes are really low budget, plastic boxlids "slugis" from IKEA, with the center cut out and glass fitted and glued, works so far, no leakage. Fixing the interior is next, benches, kitchen etc.
