Bugger! that looks nice. The wife and I had some frequent flyer points to use up or lose. We got return tickets to Tas. Were supposed to go next week but life got in the way. Bills mounted up and wife decided to book a cruise to NZ early next year. I pretty much have to go to the Uk for a month every year to visit mum. Anyway the tickets to Tas are just gonna have to be forfeited as we just can't afford to do it all.
Keep promising myself I have to go and will do in the next few years. It all looks drop dead gorgeous. You lucky bugger. Smashing pics.
Cheers John.
edit ps. Fourth pic down, bottom right hand corner. The pegs holding your shock cord rigging in place. Are they pieces of dowel cut on an angle both ends? If so I like it, even if not it made me think its a good idea. :)


Just about to go to work but tonight I will post up another pic showing them better.

Did it form work. I have 2 types.

Hooks to slip the shock cord over to hold the front hatch down

Eyes to hold the shock cord, rod lanyards etc.

You just reminded me I've got to find a way to get my Sabalo over to Tassie to visit my brother in Devonport. He would be blown away to see how these JEM's perform and he'd have plans ordered in a heartbeat! :D


I live about 10K up the river at Latrobe. :D :D :D


Now that's two reasons! :D :D

There is some magnificent country to see down here. Most people under estimate the time they need to see the place as even thou its 300Ks from one end to the other the average road speed once you get of the Main North South Highway is only 70Ks. The better calmer weather is usually after the new year up until April.
