Greeitngs,
Mr. mb. Ummmm...I think you've posted in the wrong thread. Maybe ask the mods to move your comment. I suspect you're looking for the "How much is too much thread" and NOT the "How to save a timber keel" thread...

Re: the engine...42 year old Ford Lehman asking for some TLC and deferred maintenance, injectors tuned up, raw water pump upgraded, new motor mounts, etc. And it's the etc I'm worrying about right now...$$.

Matt,

One of your fellow countrymen from Perth was looking for you back on March 28. Look for the string, "TF members from Perth, Western Australia".

I told him to look for you on Facebook...he asked, "what's Facebook?". I didn't know what to say. His name is Brett. Sea ya'!

P.S. Glad you're back!

Ok Matt, you asked for living vicariously. First pic is looking south from the cockpit during breakfast, which I've just finished. I'm at Blakesleys, North Stradbroke Island. Nothing like being out when its below 10 kn of wind for a few days.

Second pic is from where the cat is in pic 1, but looking west. Also a few days of no wind, over Easter. It really is good to be on the water, so set a date and go for it!

Ah ok. She's getting a birthday! Raw water pump upgrade? Are you going for a bigger one or changing to an electric one or just doing the impeller? Are you having cooling issues?

I remember rebuilding my engine fondly. I quite enjoyed it tho at the time when I was rebuilding the gearbox I was not quite so excited lol

Yeah I hate the "etc" parts too. Hopefully it works out for you mate.

TB ...! Hello old mate. Yeah I'm still bashing away mate. I've missed the support and messages from everyone so it's nice to be welcomed back.

Yeah plenty of beer at the boat ATM however it's moving in to winter over here so I might have to swap the beers out for something more warming like rum or scotch :-)

I've been out fishing and actually head off for a two week holiday shortly. One week of that will be a live aboard fishing trip at the Abrolhos Islands. Can't wait!!

Oh nice mate! I remember taking my boat to South Stradbroke Island and drinking at tipplers. I loved straddy.

My old stomping ground was around the jumpinpin area and right down the Broadwater to southport etc.

You're up at the Moreton Bay way yeah?

Ah, then you will know where I am now, and for the night - Tiger Mullet Channel!

Home is Dockside Marina, Kangaroo Point. So I don't get down this far south that much.

Nice mate! That would be a nice little steam down from brissy.

Will have to shoot you a PM when we go to Brisbane to visit my folks and Flic and I will pop in and say gday. Told her I'd take her on the kookaburra Queen river cruise for dinner when we go

Howdy mate! Good to have you back. Last time I checked this thread you were still building. where are the pix you said were here somewhere I would like to see what she looks like. Going fishing for a couple of weeks, I'm jealous. will you be targeting any special species?
we had a boat the first of the week a commercial 62 footer cross the bar then enter the dead calm flat seas of Charleston Oregon turn over and sink in a heartbeat in 35 feet of water. The two crew members washed up on a beach above Reedsport Oregon and the divers trying to refloat the vessel found the captain still in the boat. That's number three this year so far for Coos bay and Charleston. Your lucky your waters are soo calm and safe.....
