Hi Darrell, sorry I've been calling you Darren Embarrassed
The shots look great. Good news that you are back at work too.

Let me know if you want a hand installing the power plant.

What a beauty!
Quick.. enter her in the Classic Boat Festival.
I was only just writing a post about you, what a coincidence. Are you considering going to the Festival anyway?
Neil was looking at maybe meeting up with some members.

The volero looks great Darrell. The timber inlays really set it off. Good work.

Hi fellow boaters,  well i am still hovering around,, checking the site occasionally, some good stories coming in.. well the Dart is finished and unfortunately is up for sale (damn morgtage). anyway if you like to check it out i have put it on EBAY to test the water.. look under" Volero Dart Family Ski Boat".
 I hope to get a few more pics before i sell and will post the finished result. the boat is about 40k's from me in storaage so will get some as soon as i can. keep up the good work, and hope i get another project soon.

Cheers Darrell (Darrcoll)

Hi Darrell,
What a shame you have to part with your boat. I guess about now is a good time to test the water as we are on the threshold of Spring and the Sydney Boat Show commences on 31st July. Hopefully that will bring some buyers out of the woodwork??
Feel free to place an ad' under "For Sale" on The Board.
All the best and keep in touch.

Hi Everyone, well the dart had its maiden voyage , i must say is goes like a startled gazzelle.... need to make some fine adjustments to tilt of motor and maybe lowerit an inch or 2 (should never have lifted the transom an inch or 2). will post the final pics of boat very shortly, also dont forget she is up for sale....
