    Re: 2200 Centerconsole Fishing Catamaran.

    Love the deck space upfront. Also love the spread between the outboards, she should be real stable.

    Form surprisingly does not take that much more effort. Make drawings so you don't constantly re-engineer and or botch the design through unsightly additions.

    Perhaps refine your search.

    I have not seen self tappers referred to as M2. M2 would indicate a standard metric thread of 2mm diameter. Rather google 2mm Self tappers. 9mm is also a non standard...

    High airflow creates "case hardening". Where the outside of the biltong dries at a rate too fast for the inside. You end up with dry outside and raw inside. Does not work for me at least.
