Aussie Belle Isle

Postby Aussie » 21 Nov 2013, 10:35

Hi, my name is Jamie from Mackay in Queensland and I am building a 23 ft triple cockpit barrel back by Ken Hankinsen...
I know it is an american design but it is being built here so I will class it as Aussie...
I have completed the hull and flipped about 3 weeks ago..I have painted bottom ( pearl white) and sides ( metallic brown/ bronze) with timber on transom...timber is Aqua from the Solomon islands and this will also be used on the top deck along with Serian cedar...
I have a 454 big block chev with a 1:1 72 C transmission...
I am hoping to be finished by mid next year......
Once finished I will be keen to travel to different locations to ski and cruise with other timber classics....
Will post some pics once I resize some ....
Jamie

Ahoy Jamie!

Better get organised for the wooden boat festival at Hobart in Tasmania February 2015 then mate!

Also I assume Glen from Townsville will want to talk to you if he hasn't already, he is currently restoring a Chris craft triple.

Cheers from sunny Tasmania (NOT! Sunny that is)

I bung 'em on photobucket and use the edit facility to reduce to 680 by 400 and something. Then use the IMG url for posting the pic.
