Next outing will be during school holidays (not weekends) when I have the assistance of grandchildren to assist my children . Just cruise the Georges River .There is a lot to see and plenty of bush .
Mostly speed restricted .
Used to use . Purchased as second owner .Original lived waterfront Sydney so was slipped as well as trailered.
He owned a large paint manufacturing business including house paint and boat paint/varnish so was well maintained
I stored it outside at Sussex Inlet for many years and as she is over three metres high on the trailer there was no suitable undercover protection in town .
Suddenly found rot in the stem and transom so rebuilt the lot from scratch learning as I went . As I progressed I wanted more/better and as I've worked on five other boats (plus many other projects) it took some time
Surprisingly not so much money . Just satisfaction .
Biggest problem is to launch and retrieve as a Septuagenarian .
When ready I will send more photos of the hatch set up and an explanation .
Build the frame below deck and add a swinging arm (lever and pulleys )
