Looking good John, she'll certainly stand out on the lake but guarantee 'someone' will run into her! When's the maiden voyage? Dave.  :-))

Hi guys, I have done a bit more work on the cat and will post the pictures later today if I get chance.
I had originally bought it for a winter project but it went together so well I just couldnt leave it alone
so now I will have to look for another project to last me over-winter.

M.B.Design trawlercat update photos, I have still got the net winch, catch box and a few ods and ends to build then that is it. It has been a joy to build as it has let me run
with what I wanted to put on the boat be it right or wrong.

Hi Dave, if you are having someone change your clutch in your car make sure they resurface the flywheel & install a new pilot bearing in the end of the crankshaft. The run out on a flywheel is only .002 thou. It is not worth taking a chance that it is O/K. because labour is your biggest cost. If you are doing it yourself the same still applies. If it is hydraulic, replace the fluid also. Mick B.

Hi there, yes it's all being changed. It's being done by a garage I've been using for ages and they're very good. I should hopefully get it back later, spent a fortune on that car this year and I've hardly used it! Dave.  {:-{

Seems a lot in Canada.  :o Looking at around 400, about $640 Canadian. Still expensive, could do without it to be honest... Dave.  %%

I agree Ned, why should our cars get in the way of our hobby. Dave that is a very good price. Our problem is the the high cost of leasing & city taxes. Try having to do $36,000.00 in business in one month to break even, a bit scary to say the least. Mick B.
