Thanks gents,

Very glad I stayed with it.

Yes Greg, I got my HQ sedan, she is a good solid car with minimal rust (other than the surface)

She is on the back burner for at least 12 months after I finish the boat.

We are going to have a break from projects and just enjoy the boat

HI,

Another short video of the boat on the water on testing day.
I still need to put in a Potentiometer to steady the pulse of the Tacho although she wasn't revving much at bout 27 mph.
Engine runs smooth unlike the water that was starting to chop up.


Once I get the seats and the windscreen on I am going to do a video with a drone, cant wait!

A lot has happened since last post and may go into more detail at a later date.

For now some pics of the Belle.
We have had quite a few weekend camping trips at our local dam and a lot of fun.

Couple more videos,

One is a video I put together of the build including a little mishap on the first launch day that landed me in hospital

Can’t take her out .. but can still have a beer in her!

Was planned to be a big weekend camping at the local dam with around 30 friends.

Can’t wait for the restrictions to be over.

May throw a hand line in and go for a run out in the ocean next time the weather permits

Thanks,

Great news to be able to head out this weekend.
Going out to our local dam Kinchant for some knee boarding, tubing and skiing.

Can’t wait!
