Off to the fabricators

Just a Photo of My friend Mark and my daughter Rachel up on the boat, gives a little perspective. We are hauling it down to the Houts tomorrow for some upgrades, they'll have it for about 4 to six weeks so we won't be posting any more pictures for at least that long. By for now!

Hey Codprawn, how about some more pictures of your boat? Mines still with the welder's so no pics for a while yet, It would be nice to see some action shots, or some of it out on the water. How about it?

Back from the Houts!

Finally got the boat back from Tim with almost all of the welding finished, took a little longer than I had anticipated but as usual an excellent job, Tim and his brothers are talented fabricators! Some new pieces are the bow post/Samson bitt anchor bracket, new steps welded to the trailer as the boat is nearly impossible to board on the trailer when the tube set is on, these make it easy off the outboard bracket. The deck was rewelded where we had cracking last year, Tim said the deck pieces are two different types of plate, it contributed to the cracking on the seam so he welded a port and starboard patch. We made up a new dash panel for the control/switch panel, this one is nice and sturdy, the one used last year was only 1/8 inch thick and not up to the overall build quality of the boat. Finally we changed the radar arch at the stern as the tow post beam overhung the outboard bracket, the new piece is in line with the transom, a new tow post will be mounted off the outside of the transom. I will be posting a few things in the next couple of weeks....
