some photos from today.......

Thanks to everyone who made a real effort to come out today to make it a great success!!! It was great to put some faces to names finally and meet some families and extras that people brought along. Shame about the flotilla that took to windsor today...... the place was wall to wall boats!!

Lewy gets the prize for coming the furthest. Thanks mate!! I need one of those SNs

Poida gets the prize for maintaining a smile even though his starter didnt share his enthusiasm for the day.

Nuffin gets the never say die prize for driving to who knows where to find a dizzy cap.

The joys of old boats!

Thanks to all again. Let's roll it out again soon!!

good times guys, it was good to meet you all. We have some work to do on the pink williams too - the starter motor finally gave up. It's a bit of a shame, the river was nice and quiet at about 6pm - the perfect time to be on the water. Never mind.
At least the starter is probably the best thing that can go wrong, cheap and easy to fix.

It's a 350 - the boat is kept at John's place, he has tomorrow off work and I think he is going to take it to the place who reco'ed it a little while back. There might be a cheaper fix than replacing it (me being a tight ar5e!). Otherwise I might look into other options like a reduction starter.

Likewise guys, great to meet everyone and hang !!

BIG thanks to Bryce for organising it all, and thank you everyone for making an effort to rock up, the boats surely looked good sitting side by side on the beach.

Lewy's SN was a machine !! Now I know what all the fuss is about - ha ha ! A couple of wakeboard sets and a nice little surf confirmed this ! Thanks Mark for making the trip down and ferrying people up and down the river all day, it was VERY much appreciated mate.

Pretty happy to have mine back in action with a few sets under it's belt early in the day. Something I haven't been able to do in a while. Happy chappy !! If the water was less like a washing machine and more like a smooth river I would have used it more. Not a fan of dodging dickheadss and smashing through rollers !! Still had a lot of fun though.

Thanks all :wink:

yeah But I can also see by the pictures why people like Spectre's aswell 8) it looks so much larger than the other clinkers , looks like a very cool day.

It was a good get together. Good turn out of boats too. thanks to jasper for putting it together.

Sorry i had to head off early. Pregnant wife was not feeling well with the heat so we shot off at about mid day without even getting chance wet. Still nice to see all the WAKE folks getting together.

cheers.

Hey mate go a gear reduction starter i only paid about $160 for mine 3 months ago and its marine spec with 12 month warranty, got it from a bloke in melbourne, but he'll freight them any where. And they are alot easier to refit.
When i compared recoing mine to the price of a brand new 1 it wasn't worth it.

Yeah sounds like the go - we found one online for $130. Will make some phone calls and try and pick it up today.
Might repair the old starter later on and keep it as a spare.

Thanks heaps for the offer - I'll let you know if we run into any hassles (we have the inline bolts to suit the 12 3/4" flywheel, not the diagonal ones which are for the 14" flywheel). It's a good thing that my mate does shift work so he's able to run around and sort it out during business hours.
I'm just glad it ran fine for most of the day. I'm sure you were stoked too, after a shaky start with the dizzy cap!
