keep em coming mate.....I am interested to see how it turns out.....those flat bottom punts bang harder than a hungry hooker and I have higher sides on my coffee cup....BUT...I like what you are doing and I appreciate the time you have taken to post it up on the forum.....can't wait to see the finished product mate.

Thx Jeno, yeah, I know she's low.. so needless to say I'll be choosy about when n where I'm fishing. ha ha! I'll eventually get a 15hp for the back I reckon as well. But when it's all done, I want to take anyone from the forum out, if they are keen, (or Brave) enough for a float, ha ha! Cheers Matey.

No worries Captain...keep the chiropractor in business I reckon!
My mate in Townsville had one just like it years ago and he used the thing like an air boat.....funny as hell when there would a couple of boats pulled up on a sand bar with about 60cm's of water over it and he would just fly straight over it flat out 8)

Really good for tight creeks that have zero chop to deal with!

Well team, just one more piece to carpet for the front. Final coat of paint applied to the hull today. So next is to carpet the last piece for the front, and then have a few nice custom surprises..;)
