She’s Briefly Out of the Drink!

21 Nov

We’ve pulled Bushranger out of the water for some ‘upgrading’.

out of the drink1

Boyd replaced the prop,


installed a stainless steel rail around the swim platform (to protect my varnishing masterpiece),

swim platform

installed the shaftsaver on the gearbox (don’t ask me what any of that is…), and put in a new speed and depth transducer.


And she is starting to look like a real boat!

 all hail

All hail Bushranger!
