    Update time, We have had to make a cradle for the hull as they told us they wouldn't unload it without one :eyes_droped:
    And you have to use the correct timber :amazing: ....but it's all ready to go into the container which has been dropped off, and will be picked up on Thursday , I'll post some pics of it all wrapped up :big_smile:

    Nup, If the son in law to be wants a drive, he can set it up for me. Might start pulling my old boat to pieces so it's all ready to throw in the new one. Hopefully a quick job. (famous last words ) :big_smile: :big_smile: :big_smile: :big_smile:

    I finally picked the boat up from customs in Brisbane today. I was extremely pleased with the boat, the seats and other things you supplied for me. I am in the process of freshening up my 212 as it had done well over 3000 hours. It basically needed nothing. I am now looking forward to setting the rest of the boat up and getting it in the water. I will post some pics as it progresses. :big_smile: :big_smile: :exciting: :exciting:

    P.S. I think Mof would appreciate the slightly wider seats as well :big_smile: :big_smile:

    Thanks for the pics and update Hacky :exciting: here it is all painted and fitted out. You have done a great job :big_smile:

    I'm extremely happy with the handling and performance of the 460 hull. Its fitted with a ZZ4, 212 hami with a 3.4 turbo. It clocked 89 kph at 3800 rpm

    In fact the "AH' are my initials then there are 3 x zeros ( not "o" s ) and all boats registered in NSW finish with a ' N " So in fact it does not say ahooon. :big_smile: :big_smile: :big_smile:
