Any bulkhead in the bow? No front hatch makes me thingk possibly not.
Any reason why you like a rudder?

Looks like a Nemo. Not sure it has a front bulkhead...may depend on which exact model..

Rog.

I've send a message to point 65 with pics but not had a reply. I'm easy as to whether it has a rudder or not but I like the idea of going full steam ahead. The wife would like one.

couldn't find s discontinued list on their site then I googled the Nemo and found a list. Giving the measurements in the advert it's the picnic. Not suitable for open water apparently

For the sort of money they are asking for those, something like the Islander Bolero (previously Dagger Charleston) would be a much better bet at approx £600 new.
I used to have the Charleston 14 and did some great sea trips in it as well as river touring.
