:lol: Cheers Jack.
Tor..... Yes, not far off now. Flat out at work at the moment including weekends :( But it'll most likely be a weekend within next few weeks.... The other hiccup is my car's been pranged.....not sure when I'll get it back... I've only had it 4 weeks too :cry:
I'll pm you in advance in case we can catch up.
Thinking of testing her out locally (bayside)or heading up to somewhere like Aura Vale Lake......Which I think is somewhere near you..yeah?

Very nice looking piece of work. (I notice that he didn't hire a Hollywood starlet to pose next to the boat. They would probably be jealous at being shown up.)

Like Mick, I'm interested in a review. What activities do you plan for you and this boat?

Thanks chaps.
KJ.....I see myself happily exploring local and not so local coastal inlets, estuaries, lakes and rivers......and hopefuly pulling a fish or two out of all these locations......or just finding a quiet sunny river bank to pull into, tipping the hat down over the eyes and having a snooze....... :D
Just have to get the time to do it.......

Good luck getting off the launching dock without getting stopped to talk about your boat. :wink:
