Hi Guys,

She's Done!! :D :D :D

Will take her outside tomorrow to get some better piccies.

Will let her sit for a few days now to give the epoxy a chance to cure.

Hi DM,

Thanks mate. :D

I think this one will be a credit to the genius that is Matt. I keep going back down the shed and just walk around her and stare. i am busting to put her through her paces but will let he rest for a few days to give the epoxy a chance to properly cure. Hopefully, I will avoid any possible amine blush problems this way.

Couple more piccies.

Quick & easy rod & echo-sounder mount. will make something prettier when I get the chance. :D

Wow. Thats it, just Wow.


Seriously though Mick, Shes perfect. I hope she sets you up well to catch the big one. Clever idea for a depth sounder, I was pondering doing the same thing to my freedom. How did you mount the transducer? A pickie might help if you know what I mean :wink:
