Enjoy your heat its getting colder in the northern hemisphere 38F today here. Oh Happy New Year, we just had ours a few minutes ago and tipped a glass of bubbly with the wife. Take care and catch a lot of barra's this year off that beautiful boat.

Yes, lots in the coastal waters up north, but none in the fresh water of Somerset Dam. :D

Been chasing Barramundi around the Hinchinbrook Channel for the last four days (see "Anyone fishing"!). Took the boat off shore yesterday for some off-shore sea trials.

Ended up in this beautiful spot - my first time there.

What a useful forum this is!

After my asking about s/s fabricators on Glossieblack's Skinnydip thread and floating the possibility of getting some side rails built Florida and shipped to Australia, I was contacted by someone in my town who does excellent marine s/s work. While I was vaguely aware of his boat manufacturing company, I had no idea that they took on outside work like mine.

Problem solved - I am a happy fella.

I need to get in and finish my decks so that I can add some s/s bling to my boat!

What a fortuitous solution Lee, nice ferreting.
