Here's a pic of the old girl 6.5 mt Dehaviland we bought, basically a solid boat but totaly neglected. Used to have a full hard top, but we totally stripped her down to a bare hull and rebuilt her from there.She's now a centre console with removable targatop 300 ltr's under floor powered by a Yammy 200 HDPI. Haven't heard much about these motors on here but it's a ball tearer.Use's half the full the old 150 V6 used to, quiet as a mouse cruises at about 60 kl's and tops out at about 75 - 80 kl's. Took about 2 years to rebuild her and she has just had the under floor tanks put in and a 5mm plate floor (should have about 600 klm range) Spends most of her time out at Jabbers. Turns alot of heads dont kow if it's the name or people are trying to work what sought of boat she is:cheers:
Hope the pics work.


Live it and ENJOY

Well I have returned with the new rig and after a 7000KM round trip to Caboolture (Fisher Boats).

www.fisherboats.com.au

A very big thank you to Col and the boys at Fisher Boats they were absolutley fantastic to fit out the boat the way I wanted. But anyway here are some pics of the new rig which is going to have blood all over it this weekend.

Absolute beauty mate...goog looking rig. I had a look at em just before I got my Joshua built. He certainly has a good name going down that way and a huge following of fans.

Would be keen to have a look over it sometime and hear how it rides the chop.

A good weekender by the looks of it as well. If you are keen a few of us are heading to Marie Shoal via the Pirlingimpi Jew Hole from 25 - 27 May. Would be a good test for her.

Anyway congrats and see you on the water if I ever make it back to Oz.
