Re: A Tasmanian experience

August 2006, close up the bow and laminated strips of celeery we steamed into shape before fixing them and they are also checked into the keel. Also shows the chine board we added to strengthen her up some more.

Re: A Tasmanian experience

In May 2006 we had shaped the new keel and started playing around fitting it to the hull.

Re: Random boat photo of the week !

Thanks Dave, it was a great day, the water that clear you could watch the Flathead swimming to the hook! Bit shocked to see your little skiff for sale, too many toys?

Re: Random boat photo of the week !

Thanks for the opportunity to compete Nool. I am currently on the beach cleaning the fish we caught 40 minutes by road from Hobart, no one else around, probably only one thing other competitors would not like, we are of course in salt water!
Cheers

Re: A Tasmanian experience

I got Johnny Harrord to come out for another inspection. He said, "It looks better everytime I see it." Bloody hell I hope so, and it was only the second time he had seen it! We then routered the joins in the planks to fit celery slithers to the hull.

Re: A Tasmanian experience

Amazingly I got the keel (deadwood) off without any problems or damage eg. putting the blockbuster through the hull! :oops:

Re: A Tasmanian experience

Sorry about the last photo, not that good, we decided the keel needed replacing and Bruce just happened to have a 18 foot piece of celery top pine that he had been keeping for a keel for a future boat (one day)!

Started removing the many layers of anti-fouling. Bruce was still concerned about the hull, particularly what might be hidden under her blue gum keel.
