We are not done yet 2018


Hi all,

Have wheels, will travel.

2018 D fish are calling. The boat is good to go, well almost. New sounder/GPS sitting on the boat, a new auto bilge pump to installed. 

I slipped the boat off the trailer early December so I could service the trailer proper. 4 cans of fish oil later, with the neighbors  blocking there noses she is all good to winch back under the boat.

Lambie works the winch as I knock the keel blocks of timber sideways, as the trailer incher's its way back under the boat. It takes 5 minutes to winch back under. However setting it up to pull the trailer from under takes up hours, with 14 tyre casings to support/ balance the boat while sitting on the keel proper.

it be ready tio go soon now.

This trip will be 3 weeks of KG/ Snapper fishing in SA in early March.

Fishing anyone!

Jim

Yep! We're getting our 70HP Yamaha Outboard serviced in a few weeks time then heading for a long stay at Mallacoota VIC.

Plenty of Black Bream & Dusky Flathead in the lakes. Just waiting till the kids go back to school, a bit quieter then.
