    refurbish fibroglass boat

    well maybe we can keep talking about it instead 😉 A drive on trailer, you need a way of getting in to and out of the boat at the ramp. People usually try and put a ladder there, but I don't know where you'd attach it to an FG boat. Anyone use hydraulic steering and how do you find it? The coupling over-ride looks pretty straight forward, take of the old and bolt on a new one, using engineered fastenings.

    Outboard Motor Pod Advice

    Bump this post: How did you get on? I'm sorta getting interested in something like this myself

    refurbish fibroglass boat

    Some of the later outboards come with power steering on the motor. I presume that most of the bigger models will have this as standard meaning that cable/rod/hydraulics will become obsolete. Are you a practical person? Would you have a go at doing some of this yourself?

    New or second hand outboard

    I have a 90HP on my 5metre FG and it pushes it along very well. I think that the 70 would have been a little under powered. My engine is second hand ETEC 2010 model. I've been very happy with it, no issues. It just took a while to find it

    Trailer repairs

    The under carriage looks just like my one too, so I had also wondered about lifting the trailer up on jacks and then blocking it up to drop the carriage off and then make a new one. If you decide to go ahead, take lots of photos so I can copy ;-)

    Interesting debate on life jacket laws

    I think its a bit like having headlights on, mandatory for motorcycles. I think its a good idea, and I'd be doing it anyway, I just don't want it mandated. With rock fishing, I wear a pfd and have the boots too, but I don't see why i would get a fine when someone else standing beside me with out a rod wouldn't. cheers

    All rounder boat

    Just be around when I come up. I can help you launch! Would you consider keeping it and getting a little tinny if you have the room to store it? Possibly join a fishing club and find a deckie. I bet @Scratchie knows a few ;-)
