    Yeehaa finished little rebuild on the Jet Boat....

    Grabbed this little Jet Boat from Greymouth after watching no body bid on it for several relists. Mt first so bit scarey and didnt want to rush out and spend moon beams with
    stuff to do to the house etc etc etc happening. The guy dropped to CHCH for gas money. Had a friend of a friends son mtr cycle racing someplace and so they towed it home.
    V6 Holden mtr injected all good just scruffy round the edges.. Dropped it in the river at TeAroha first weekend and nearly got to State highway heading over the Kaimais .
    We did 96 Kms in her down the river at 40 Kmh did not miss a beat so I decided Id tidy her up a bit. 4 Months later and a little bit of money here she is....
    Turned into new dash and guages, wiring repairs , mods, Fish finder GPS, Stereo, new seats, interior paint, new hoses here and there etc etc as it does..


    Before upon arrival at home....

    After. Put tredplate here and there so you can jump off onto riverbank and not fall in the river like the Midget did the first trip.
    (Tui induced I thought but he disagreed)
    It tidied up some of the wek creky bits as well without adding too much weight. Old hull heavy and strong though

    well done. Watch the treadplate though - when wet it can be slippery to stand on and easy to fall on.

    Nice boat. Would be handy for sure.
    If you don't get Dirt, Blood or Grease under your nails it ain't a hobby
