    Diesel Engines

    I 4by around the country and sometimes can’t be too fussy when there is little choice. My advice is to install a second fuel filter and use an additive to be safe. I haven’t had a problem with fuel with this setup. Cheers Waz
  2. Gull Wing derivation Pongrass & a USA mfr went down this road in early 1970 Looks good with the extended chines , makes it compress air and water under the hull. It will ride softer like a Kevlarcat over chop.
  3. People get seasick on carnival cruise ships so hull design is more ride V stability at rest historically for trailer boats. Keep your head up and don’t bend over to study the floor of the boat for too long Try tablets, ginger, grazing anzac cookies and drinking water regularly while out. The more time on the water the more desensitised you will become to seasickness. If it’s the wife that gets crook , then just tell her the bigger the better and get a lot more $$$$ for budget Yes I haven’t helped much , but you could now get the boat you really want Cheers Waz
  4. Absolutely, working on the boat, servicing reels etc is for lousy fishing weather. It floats and moves so use it
  5. That looks great , my boat was fouled and has layering of fouling applied by the previous owner. It looks sh!thouse, so even a matt finish will be a huge improvement.
  6. I am looking forward to seeing the results of the soda blasting Hope it’s turns out a treat Cheers
  7. Great post Definitely get a plumbed live bait tank going asap , that’s my next project on my buster. Cheers Waz

    No Love For Cats ?

    Owning a Kevlarcat I can share some insight The cat can manoeuvre exceptionally well with twin motors, in tight marinas etc better than a monhull, at speed turning to port throttle down the port motor, you will turn in a smaller circle and not get thrown out I use mine to Scuba Spearfish and Sportfish which it is ideal. If I was wanting a pure fishing machine, then a monohull will throw a nice wake for your trolling lures, they are very stable these days and a easier vessel to master. Cheers Waz
  9. That is this years project for my kevlarcat , I was advised soda blasting will not harm the gel coat. Twin hulls are far too difficult to fiddle around with sanders, having pods etc. you have got a really good result for your efforts. Cheers Waz
  10. I just agree with everything the wife says and claim short term memory loss is a genetic family predisposition I have been with my misses for 31 years
  11. Great post , i’m keen to wet a line after reading this Cheer

    New Boat

  13. Land based we use large fish frames on a rope, the wave action and barnacles grate a nice little trail of burley.
