Hi all, long time reader first time poster. We have just completed (well 90%) converting a timber trawler/lobster boat to a pleasure craft. 3.5 years to recalk, new bulwarks, extend wheelhouse, replace or refurbish all systems. Conversion was done in Launceston and now we are learning how to use her. So far just up Tamar river around to Triabunna on east coast then explored Schouten Is and Maria Is then around peninsula to Hobart. Latest trip was down channel and up Huon River nearly to Huonville over a couple of days.

Would be great to know if there is anyone from Tassie on this site. With the upcoming wooden boat festival in Feb 2019 hopefully it will entice some similar boat down this way.

Welcome to TF from a fellow Aussie. Great looking boat you have there. Congratulations on your loving restoration. I only got to Tassie one time so far, but loved it. The trip up the Gordon River is something else. Amazing scenery, and I loved the Drunken Admiral restaurant down at the harbour. What a great nautical theme. I believe the Wooden Boat Festival is really something. Some of the members on here have attended it, I think. Benn, of the vessel Tidahapah for one, I'm pretty sure. He may comment.

Hi La-Sallette, we don't have a boat of any size anymore but yes we are in Tassie just inland on the central north coast not to far from Penguin.
Love the look of your boat. Could you give us some details i.e length, engine etc.

Welcome LS.
Yes you certainly have a beautiful boat. Tassie has an abundance of them. I hope to get down there for the next wooden boat festival and to visit relatives in Geeveston.

Yes Tasmania still has lots of solid timber working vessels about and make a great project as swampu would well know. 9 years is a long time but your boat looks quite a bit bigger than ours.

To answer Jetstream La-Sallette is just under 50ft long and is powered by a Gardner 8lxb turning a twindisk box with PTO and a 42 inch prop. We have been running her at 1000 rpm averaging 6.9 kts using we think less than 10lph. The first run in awful conditions into a 2.5m sea over 35 hours averaged 6.5 kts

She is not fast but designed to pull a net. Perhaps the bilge keels we added has slowed her a bit.

The south west a hopefully a 2019 adventure for us Peter B. Just have to swing a few weeks leave first.

AusCan if you need some mooring options while your down let me know.

We know La-Sallette was built by P.J.Payne in 1972-73 as he wrote that inside the wheelhouse. Possibly built in Victoria or South Aus. I spoke to the original owner briefly as we chased the national registration paperwork, sadly he seemed quite hard of hearing but he did recall how she loved to roll as sea.
We have been told the planking is kauri on possible Jarra ribs. Not sure what the stem and keel are but itís extremely hard. The bulkheads and wet well possibly Oregon. We used a lot of Macrocarpa for capping on bulwarks and the bilge keels. Had to replace one plank and used Celery Top pine. Only Huon is a little block Iím making into a support for the telly

La-Sallette,
Welcome on board, love your boat. A very worth while project and one way of really getting to know your vessel.
I had my boat Tidahapah down in Hobart for the 2015 Wooden Boat Festival and then my mates boat New Horizons for the 2017 festival. I may fly down for the 2019 festival if I am not working.
I have a 6LXB in Tidahapah and run it at 1250 RPM for just under 8 knots and a fuel burn of about 12 lts / hr
Some more photos of your boat would be great.

Welcome La- Sallette,

looks like a very capable and solid Vessel. Enjoy.

Isn't Tassie just the best !!, we went down in 2015 and spent 3 months doing a Cir cum , it is just fantastic , we loved it. Highlights for us were the Gordon River, Port Davey, Maria Island, ah the list goes on. We had two wooden vessels prior to Liberty , so really appreciate the Knowledge and skills to maintain a Timber vessel, but best of all you know your the only one with that vessel which makes it unique.

cheers Chris D Liberty.

Hi La-Salette, I am up the north of the state and new here too. Not on the water just yet as I am in need of my own boat. Your lump of wood looks just the shot, and you have done a great job with her. I hope to come down your way and maybe check it out.

Very nice La-Sallett!

We'll be coming down for the hwbf. Looking forward to checking out your vessel, and of course that 8lxb.

Please keep the pictures coming.
