Work

A bit, has a couple of welds on the keel required, a new bung and anchor bollard.

I was thinking of welding wide gunnels into it, put on rod holders, bow rail with clears and a plywood floor. Maybe mount the batt and tank up front. Paint isn't too bad, wouldn't mind bead blasting it back to alloy, but worried about it going black after a while.

Milsey's tinny

Seen his effort Russ, he done real well, come up spot on. I done a tinny before (similar) - if I could work out how to put the picture in this reply you could see it. Any tips on adding pics to replies?

 

Cheers,
