Congrats' to you David from all the members of The Board. Cheesy

The end result you have achieved is a magnificent example of an Australian Classic Outboard Runabout.

The time and effort you have made is truly reflected in the overall finish, she is a real head turner. Your slide show is a wonderful finishing touch too!
We are all sure you and your family will enjoy many hours together on the waterways.

Three Cheers...

MERCMAN.

Thanks fellas for your kind words.
As with anything worth doing it was  a challenge. My wife got a bit tired of hearing about it as well as me being in the shed working on it so much but now we can move on and enjoy. Our boys love belting around the bay and they all are now into tubing, kneeboarding and one can now ski.
Thanks for all your helpful hints and support. It really makes a difference when you know there are others as silly as you when it comes to doing something like this. The Board has been a great help and an inspiration.

All the best.
David
