Excellent job Silver... I see many hours of great fishing to be had from that very perch!

Best regards,

Took it for a spin on Tuesday. Certainly much better. great to be able to walk around up the front. The way i have mounted the Electric Motor is now not the best but, again, i could not have a mounting plate extending past the rail because of the cover. It's a bit of a hassle but i am not going to change it as it is not worth the effort.
I also managed to jam a 25mm electrical conduit down the side of the rail to keep the cable(s) neat and tidy.
Few more things to do yet. I have made up some 'demountable' navigation lights and am working on a removable white night light for the rear. I will do some night fishing once the weather warms up.
Also working on a battery tray to stop things sliding around and a way of keeping the fuel tank from doing the same.
Coming, at some time, is a fish finder and a slightly bigger pitch prop for better cruising.
Weather permitting i'm heading out Sat & Sun for a bit of relaxing. I got 4 Flatties the other day. They are a bit on the lighter side this time of year but they will get in better condition as it gets closer to summer.
Don't forget..if anyone is down this way...PM me if you want a trip up the river....it's certainly worth a look.

Ok. It's all done. Pretty happy with it. Maybe the seat is a touch big but i am the only person that is usually in it so all good. Nice and comfy anyway. Fishing is a bit quiet but i always get a feed.

Looks awesome but you have the seat facing the wrong way if you want to use the birdbath for casting practice lol
