Quite true, the trick is getting them to throw some back out now and then

Thanks guys :D

Just way the fuck to busy to do much of anything on here lately, & actually has been that way for quite a while. Everything I touch recently breaks, so much so Im now afraid to go take a piss :?

I can TOTALLY relate on VB's definition of a boat. I threw a LOT of hard earned money into my "hole in the water" when I was trawling :cry:

that's alot of work. Well done and good luck fishing. I used to work with one of my brothers hauling cargo on a 47' wooden boat. I'll try and dig some pics. She's on dry land now by another owner, brother went fishing in the heavens 5 years ago, parked for good i figure. Scarry stuff somedays outthar', but great memories and what a learning experience.

Cheers

Getting ready for another fishing season. Replaced some of the fore-deck planking. Hoping for a dry bunk this year :D

Dry bunk? I sure hope that you got the right planks replaced. It's hard to sleep when bedded down in a wet bunk.

There was some rot where those planks meet the covering board(along the right side there) and it was going to travel down into the structure if not fixed.
