  1. Kick the kids off the swingset and use that with a block and tackle.Or get a mate and eat some spinach and lift it off by hand.
  2. People want to pay peanuts for boats and sellers want top dollar.I've been offered 5k for my boat and for that I will be keeping it. If you are new to boating I'd highly recommend some sort of tinny as there's usually less to go wrong with them being more forgiving of user error,cheaper to run,tow,maintain,launch,retrieve for the same given size as a glass one. Old fibreglass boats with just as old motors are a mugs game unless you know your way around boats,have the necessary skills,tools,and most of all $$$$ to bring them back up to scratch.Out sourcing the work is not financially
  3. Might duck out during week.Will see.
  4. Yeah,windy at Bellambi too.And at home.Plus it's the weekend.Im a fisherman of leisure and only go out weekdays or nights.πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚
  5. Cheers mate.I think I'll give it a go during the coming week if family life and all the planet's align.She's in the garage all fueled and ready to roll at a moment's notice.Wish the mrs would stop making her dirty putting her washing baskets on her.πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Itching to get out and test the permatrim to find out what a mistake it was.πŸ™„
  6. I would seek out a fibreglasser to make you a curved mount to suit your hull shape and either get it glassed in to your hull or bolted on but I'd get rid of that bottle of soft drink and replace it with a bottle of Tequilla to harden you up.πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ My mate builds boats out of fibreglass but i don't think you'll want to tow your rig to Port Macquarie for him to make you one.
  7. I'll just swim at home in the pool thanks.I'll wait a bit me thinks.Thanks for the heads up.

    Honda 50hp issue

    It's hard for anyone on here to diagnose without seeing it and running some tests.That motor sounds like it's missing which usually points to a problem with spark or fuel. Best bet is take it in and have it looked at properly than relying on our guesses.
  9. Normally on anything you buy if you lay a deposit down and decide not to go ahead with the purchase you lose it. It's up to you if you want to give it back but you don't have too.The only thing is they may do something to your property/cars etc if they know where you live. I never sell anything from home as you never know who the buyer really is.
  10. I'll let you know how everything goes mate.The holes are 30mm in from the ends and 15mm in from the sides of the cavitation plate.There's plenty of meat on the cavitation plate left. I also countersunk both sides of the holes slightly.I highly doubt the cavitation plate will crack. Also foils like SE sport/stingray etc have only 4 holes/bolts from memory.This has six which is more secure/stronger than those.They flex more too being rubber/plastic material. It's when holes are too close to edges with not much thickness left in the metal that issues normally arise.But there's no gu
  11. Just the angle mate and the motor is tilted.
  12. Hope you get your transducer sorted mate.
  13. Good to hear.I just installed the permatrim.See how she goes.It may be beneficial it may not.If it's not I'll take it off.No big deal really.
  14. Well I've committed myself now haven't i.Will see how she goes.Thanks for all the comments/suggestions.
