I am sure I read on here somewhere that you were building a boat. I would love to hear about it if you get a minute :speed:

Plenty of man hours have gone into this project ,havent fished on the shore /wall for weeks now ,had a trip or 2 out in the bay ,caught flatties ,doggies :thumb:

Anyway back to my boat ,its a sea hog was in a low old way but after many weekends and nights with several helpers who have done the majority its almost ready ,trailer getting sorted today ,hopefully get the boat lifted on it tonight then we just need to install the engine ,once this is done tomorrow morning we might give it it's 1st Sea trial :thumb: :thumb:

All the electrics have been fully renewed ,fish finders ,radios ,depth finders etc all in place .Fully re painted ,new floor installed looks good :yeah2:

Good stuff seahogs are great boats perfect to fish this coast. I had a hunter for many years, very stable at anchor and a relatively smooth ride. Hope you enjoy it and look forward to a few pics.
