    Moderators should move this thread to the outrigger section.

    Don't know about this particular boat, but knowing Derek he more than likely designed this around a Nova 46dd. Given its clearly Eagle inspired rather than what he's doing now with JRX style stuff, I'd say this is a very early go. Where are you based?

    Del Craft would be from Derek Owen in UK, and is more than likely a copy of an Andy Brown Eagle SGX machine.

    Del likes to take boat designs and tinker/modify them to suit his needs.

    I don't know if he's here on IW, but you can get a hold of him on Facebook, as he's in the nitro boat groups over there.

    If you do Facebook, here's the link to his page and you can message him. Real nice bloke.....
