Re: Pyranha Varun Med C30

Re: FS: Pyranha Fusion with Connect 30 outfitting

I'm looking for a Fusion and I am in Fort William this weekend, I was just looking at the photos, am I right in thinking you've drilled through the boat in multiple places?

Do you still have the Connect 30 outfitting that appears to be removed?
