RE: crazy aussie thinking of buying a steel trawler in adelaide
Know them well.
Worked on one up here in Mooloolaba with a mate of mine long lining. It eventualy sunk in the Bris River due to lack of attention.
A bloody big boat built like a brick s..t house.
a VG platform to start with. and the end result could be excellent. You have plenty on board to start with and with that progress can be made slowly.
Keep the info comming as you progress, now that I am home I can get back to my own boat in Tin Can Bay and do the engine transplant.
