Re: BarraMan's Mangusta 21 barraboat in Townsville, AUS

Re: A quuestion for Jacques

If it were me, I’d round it over, put a small fillet where it joins the hull, and put a couple of layers of 6 oz biax over it.

Re: A quuestion for Jacques

Don't over think it. Put a 1 x 1 inch skeg on it - start at the front where the keel straightens out and stop 18" from the transom. Even with bunks I think a ski boat type skeg would be a pain in the butt and unnecessary. My "other" boat is a tinnie of similar style to your boat - it has a skeg of a...

Barraman,you know you’ve created expectations of video and photos based on your evidence of trophy fish don’t you? We expect much footage of river and incomplete skinny water craft.
Yes, we know we have a tough audience, that’s why we’re holding out for some good weather!

Not to worry. It doesn’t make any difference to me if I live in Brisbane or Townsville - fortunately our son has an apartment in Brisbane that we can use.

The Gods are frowning on attempts by Michael Glossie and I to explore the Noosa R. Raining at Noosa today and tomorrow - so we will just hold off until the Gods smile.

The Noosa Bar

Here’s a link to some great videos of Micheal Glossie’s home bar. Beautiful part of the world. I think we might give it a crack on Tuesday - NOT!

It claimed another victim on Friday! Fortunately the only thing hurt was pride.
