Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

I finally got the transom and A brackets cast! In the end I had to buy an entire box of core blanks 1 1/8" core is not that common. If it wasn't for the core these would have been cast over a month ago. Now I have a box of cores if we need any more it should take anywhere near the time to get t...

Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?

Take another pic showing us the motor in the down position on the back of the boat and indicate where the water line on the boat is. Is it a case of not having enough thrust or is it more speed that you are really after? Is the boat being used in salt or fresh water? If it is salt what is the tidal ...

As a 1 off it would need to be $40.
I'm planning on making a pattern to be able to mould up 4 or 6 at a time but that will depend on the amount of interest.
I could also change it form Marston seagull to British Seagull if there is more interest in that.

Re: Flying Bird Tank logo

The mould costs more the the part. Got one cast just to have a look. The back it too thick and I got a bit of shrink. IMG_3237.jpg I still cleaned it up for a look, still needs some work but it's still not too bad. IMG_3244.JPG Not sure, the next one I might just polish up the entire thing? Put a fi...

Yup! That's when you have to put full trust in your kids (15 and 12) I left them to drive the boat while I did the fixing.
