    How not to treat a classic

    I would like to thank the cocky who thaught it was a good idea to put a strainer post in the middle of the river/stream!

    Fark, up on the plane scooting along and crunch someone sticks a strainer dead centre in the hull. You sure you were on the river and not taking a short cut across a flooded paddock?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Was a project of my mates. yea the boat is history now. but we did get it out of there..... Floating too!!!
    I almost broke my ribs in the dash

    Think the Hinies were half the reason we didnt see the post till a bit late.
    I will try post some photos of the recovery if i can find out how to get the photos down to a respectable size.

    Yea This was the first Jet boat we destroyed....
    The second jumped off the towball , broke the chain and ended up in a ditch even smaller than the one above!
    Was the same motor and jet unit from above... we think that the motor was bad luck so it was sold.
    There is a new boat on the scene now.... i realy nope we dont crash this one as there is about 580 hp in it!

    Another VR... Just a newer one..

    And shes getting a 12mm keel instead of the 8mm one it has now..

    Getting a few other mods done on her while shes at it... New bisalloy intake grill, double bilge with auto switch..
    Can finally have a leak free boat as the crack in the jetblock the engine and unit had to come out to fix will be gone
    putting new computer and wiring in,...

    You gotta be carful up dodgy wee creeks when things are in flood....
