    Certainly sink the hours into them when building esp when you have teething problems, id do it again but wouldn’t use the cunty Rotax 787
    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    From a kit set hull 400-600 man hours depending on build quality and how well your workshop is set up is not uncommon. A lot of knowledgeable chaps on the jbnz forum.

    3m scrimjet, I know the guy well so using his plans, I think I might make my own intake and grill, being an engineer it makes it easier to source supplies etc, when going through rapids does your foot jump around on the foot pedal enough to annoy you?

    Typical opening day on the coast mate. It would be rather tame to what I have witnessed or heard about in the past.
    Hopefully we have an opening day. No cases of virus in Westland but that wont last imo.

    Back to the boat I reckon a dark metallic green would look good on it. I like the setup.

    I have heard of a few locals that were at the conference. Yeah still see heaps of tourists in and around Hoki.
    I growled at one that reached into my truck window to pat the dog while I was in a shop.
    Not only risking being bitten but considering the current climate it was pretty stupid.

    I cant feed my ponds as they're on extended family properties. Will shoot a riverbed this opening and save ponds for later in the season hopefully.
