  1. Bimini on. The depth sounder (I don't call them fish finders, cos I don't normally catch any) is fully wired and functional. Ive dropped the hull on the back lawn and applying a fresh layer of cold galv where surface rust is showing through. Not so elcheapo now, owes me just over $2800, but I suppose its cheap compared to buying one in similar state.
  2. Maybe Hudson Terraplane judging by the alloy moulding. Could be (and most probably am) wrong. As to value no idea but if you had a Terraplane grille you could almost name your price to the rat rod fraternity.
  3. Another almost Alloy welder attempt. Made a mount for the new transducer and slathered it in neutral cure silicon One step closer
  4. In my haste I forgot a before pic. The guide had the front completely broken off, and unevenly. Burnt some scrap 3mm onto it and shaped it to suit. If it fails I'll need to make a new one. It's as rough as guts but should work
  5. Pic of new (old) sounder. Downloaded a manual for it and it's far superior to the other Garmin. Shed will get a clearout soon.
  6. Well summers upon us, and the annual January holiday is 6 weeks away. Time to drag it out and get it ready. Last time I used it I managed to tear a rowlock off, so that's to be done. The depth sounder I bought seems to be faulty. Lucky for me workmate just put flash new one in his boat so got his cast off for $25. Need to fit that. Really keen to get bimini top for some shade. It's like a fricking frying pan. But first need to remove the ton of crap in front of it.
  7. Awesome. I've always pined for one of these. I'd imagine the kick start would be as finicky as my 850. Like like like the plans for it. That windjammer might be worth something. I've seen so many of those things one stateside 750-850s like mine
  8. Anytime @cletus. I think it's was a good buy for the price. Stoked you bought it.
  9. Departure in t-15hrs. Fingers crossed its a cruisy and drama less day. Woot.
  10. Dragged Hull home from work lockup where its been since March. Collected engine/fuel tanks/fishing gear from storage lockup. Life jackets out of the caravan (at same work lockup). Only thing I can't find is the anchor and rope. Currently impatiently waiting for Savebarn to open to buy rope and a grapple anchor. Workmate has given me an old sand anchor. Ran engine up last night once I remembered how to start it. Electrical check. Battery charged. Assemble anchor setup tonight Bring on next week. Here fishy fishy
