Re: Bouyancy and other matters

Interesting reading, but as suspected, not necessary to install buoyancy to an existing vessel.

Most of us have a truck tyre tube stuffed up under the bow, but, of course, that does not keep the vessel horizontal. It will at least, providing there is enough buoyancy there, prevent the boat sinking.

Re: Auction at Pastoria Vic

I remember this boat from about 15 years ago. The owner said it only needed some paint. It was being stored under a tarp under a tree back then. Looking at the pics, it has deteriorated considerably since then (not surprisingly). He claimed it was a Stephens hull.

It's two weeks away, you'll have recovered by then, plus it's only a couple of hundred k's.

Re: Historic Winton 2018

OK, it seems there has been a communication breakdown and Historic Winton do want us there to display over the 26th and 27th.

If you are interested, please either post here or email Alan or myself.

We need to get a boogie on as it's only a couple of weeks away now.

No invitation as yet - doubt it's going to happen this year.

Re: Bouyancy and other matters

Agree with Chivs, David.

It is a resto and not a new build, so will not be bound by flotation requirements. It'll be interesting to hear what the authorities say, but I haven't heard of any re-registered boats that didn't already have flotation requiring it.
