Ahoy all!! I am now back home in Tasmania getting ready like most to enjoy a bit of boating. Whilst doing a bit of sorting I came across the following (photos attached) history of Tomboy I forgot I had filed away!! Cheers

Ahoy Chivs,
What a great couple of bits of history!
Wow Tomboy needs to be locked up.
You could have almost bought a house for 1000 pounds back then.
It was a high powered launch too

Ahoy all from sunny Hobart!

At the risk of being over confident I can report that my fleet of three are all capable of floating (re Torea if bilge pump can keep up?) and getting from A to B, one particularly Quickly than the other (Too) two! The hydro now has the single plane manifold and Holley 465 carb fitted and runs nicely on the trailer, hopefully test run soonish with further good news to report? To be continued!

Ahoy Captain,
Great to hear the flotilla is back, make sure you get some pics/footage when Quickly hits the water. This pic reminds me of the festival just duck into the esky for a cold drink :D
Cheers

Yes Daz, great memories of a convivial ale with a fantastic crew! The festival people have organised a semi get together as Hobart Regatta is still planned as a goer! So on the Sunday a sail past has been organised.
And yes to the video footage!
Cheers mate

Outing two, boat two with evidence of bilge pump working overtime and on the theme of two it does have two bilge pumps, one to work at rest and the other at the back to work when up and going!
