Installed 316 keel guard I had mad up by local engineer. A ton of fun getting it screwed to hull once it was filled with epoxy.
Also installed shiney new baitboard from an nz built surtees. The purists may hate it but I love it. 3 rod holders, knife slots, removable cutting board, drain tube to be plumbed trough transom, and Nyalic coated so it will stay looking good for years. Every boat should have one.
Hope all you lot all safe and sound up there. Summer time just around the corner down here.
Rob... you said you wanted to see the first fish come aboard...... well this one wasnt the first, but was the biggest.
Kiwi-Grip that deck. I went through five gallons of the stuff doing my current boat. As you know it's easy to apply. Its also very easy to clean! No more hard scrubbing on the non-skid. It now takes less time to clean the cockpit than the rest of the boat! If you want you can still roll a carpet over it for non-fishing use.
Kiwi grip rolled on gunnels. The name has nothing to do with being patriotic, just a good - easy to use product. Have to do around bow with it next. Giving serious thought to doing floor with it instead of marine carpet.
