    Hi I seen the side guides on ebay for $250, thought that was too much so made them myself parts from Bunnings and a shop. the floor and stringers were professionally done I made the seat boxes and had them fibre glassed and installed with the floor, they can be removed easily by a couple of screws. Transom was in good condition. in all it cost $5500 and 4 weeks. I will need to make new lids when I get back home as I hadn't had time to finish them before leaving.

    Not sure on total weight but it is heavy, the xr6 has a higher towing capacity than xr6Turbo. My next car will be a 4X4. I launched at port ramp and had a bit of trouble on the Anderson grid that they have at the bottom. I usually launch at Berkley ramp on the lake and go out through the entrance, then when the swell picks up come back into lake and do some more fishing. I am going to go to Sydney harbour one day.

    it should do, I averaged 10.5 L/KM driving from Wollongong to port hedland. I was a bit worried about the ramps over here as the tides are huge but it pulls out the long ramp easy

    Guide poles

    Made guide poles for easy boat retrieval and centering. Gal pipe obtained from Bunnings, rollers mounted on steel bar that they were made for and fits inside pipe with a washer welded in place to stop it sitting on roller. There is a bolt going through mounting bracket and the chain to stop any movement need to replace rollers with nylon type as these ones have gone soft and leaving bits stuck to the boat
