A nice project to keep you out of mischief for a while...!  ;D
We all look forward to the progress.   :sip:

Boston Whaler, nice find, a diamond in the rough.

Forgive me if I missed it in your thorough description, what size is that old Merc?.

I watched the vid, 850 HP seems like a lot of power for that old Merc  :peepwall:

What’s the max hp the vessel is rated for?

Congratulations - looks like a super find and with some love and care will surely be a great fishing boat.

From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

Howzit, lekker glad on the new boat, lots of TLC but its sometimes therapeutic.

I often watch this oke on your tube, "The Boat guy" he seems to often score bargains on motors and did a very similar thing to a boat he recently got..


&t=304s

I've been working on and off for 3 years on my little boat, it should finally be done and ready for December this year  :deal: :deal:
