GMD - Part 4

She's over and sitting perfect on trailer just to fab bow catch and the two forward beds. It was a good laugh flipping it. 5 mates, a few cartons and some good laughs.

 You won't have to worry about light chop with that baby.

What size fuel tank are you installing ? biggest problem we have is not enough fuel.

A mast and some sails perhaps?.

Good for trolling......

At the current price of Fuel I'm looking at $1500 for a full set of tanks. Looks like the Quinnie will be my regular fishing mobile and I'll bring the big duck out for overnight trips.
Even better our new home is only 15nm to the Great Barrier Reef and we're allowed to bring fish home....:D

 I was only talking about

Tue, 2022-04-26 21:41

 I was only talking about that yesterday. I purchased 9 rolls of 1.2 safra wire from Prime and have only just put the eighth roll on Anzac Day. I still have all the rub/fender rails to weld on. Hopefully I don't need more than 9 rolls as they have jumped up 18% as of last week.

 Ha ha Jesus some serious

 Ha ha Jesus some serious welding time there.

I recently did a job and went through 6 rolls of 1.2 mm flux core and was pretty impressed with myself, I hadn't burnt that much wire on a job in years. 

Try to avoid it these days and let the boys do it, only reason was the job was DNV compliant so had to do it myself. 

The boat is looking great, look forward to seeing the cab on.
