Thanks Guy
You know I get embarrassed to show my 'head turner ' but I thought it time the public should have a look at styles and craftsmanship of the era .
No plastics , mastics or fantastic then.
But I really am enjoying bringing her up to scratch over the last couple of months .
Unfortunately the Corona's might have a lemon in them at the moment .
Love to see you and many  members there .
Will keep in touch .

Very nice work Robbie .That Tassie Oak would have finished nicely also in a clear epoxy or varnish .

Greta Thunberg and her family is Swedish . A country of modernity ! Too modern .
Good source and comments David and Guy .
Next time I go to Stockholm I'll go in SX2 and row into the Harbour to meet Greta as she will  not fly to meet me here .

 Hi Greg
I don't want to sound patronising but you are a clever lad !
Design and hard work .You should make a good school captain and a shoe-in if you are as good looking as me Wink
And what about the girls -all those Nymphettes -good luck !

Hi Greg
I fully concur with David and Andrew .
Your attitude of hands on and advice from experienced people is admirable .Books for reference .
Bring on the school holidays to give you more time  (or do you need a break ?)

Thanks for your advice on SX2 with the smoky idling outboards .
All ok-plugs good -new high octane fuel and they fired well .
Have you had a look at her -now that was a project !

Cheers

Hi David
The pic really doesn't do it justice .It is a complicated instrument .
I have the manual and all technical specs plus the invoice no. but no price .
Given that the original boat/motors/trailer cost more than a house and land in Sydney the sounder would have been pricey.
I think that their market was professional/trawlers etc.

Cleaning SX 2  I have come across 3 brand new spark plugs ( thought they were used ) along with 100 metre roll of strip chart recorder paper and thought subject may be of interest .
The roll fits into my 1960 Furuno 200 Mark -3 fish finder.
The pick up (since removed ) was under the hull  and sent to the unit which recorded by needle on to the moving paper .
It is 30 x 20 x 15cms and weighs about 6 kgs . Shocked
Has nothing in common with today's lightweight colour units
