Hi AlanK, Cataway.
Many thanks or your input, particularly pics! After a protracted assessment, I've decided to go with the Hebridean. This is a DIY job, mostly wood. I had good reviews of performance once tuned correctly; it's light, very easy to fix if it breaks, and requires a modest bracket on the transom. It is also a fraction of the cost to that of commercial models, not counting my labour to build. Quite a carpentry job though. I just got the kit a couple of days ago and clearing out my workshop now to start the build. Will keep everyone posted on progress.
Thanks again for your comments.
