    I saw that for sale, probably a good buy for someone willing to do the work and power it.

    Rebuild it as a runabout would look really nice, it probably requries a lot more money than i have

    Stringers would need to be 38-50mm that alone one would have to build a table/jig/press like we used at a plywood security door factory and press 2x25mm sheets those two sheets cost $200 and would only make 1 length at 4.8 meters for a stringer 500mm tall than all the glassing it would be a big job it would gobble up supplies really fast

    But geez the rewards u could put a stripper pole on there or swing a cat so to speak

    Looks like im on the market for another car i just blew the gearbox in the ford really sad shit when i had it for sale

    Looks like my 3.5k sale price will be 1k now a bit worried now, i have 4k so i can find something for 5k and negotiate

    I could fix the ford gearbox get it reco but it will likely cost a good amount and i need a car now

    What about a second hand gearbox to get it back on the road?

    The problem was the car felt like it was towing 1 ton with no trailer, speedo was reading 0 while i was doing 60, i called a transmission specialist he said when the speedo cable, gear or sensor goes it automatically puts the gearbox in 3rd gear by default so im going to get it fixed next week

    I thought the rubber band like was worn syncro rings in the gearbox something to do with the car doing a burnout yesterday trying to get the boat off

    But its all good i get to keep the old girl

    Got to add yestererday when i loaded up the trailer with the boat on the car only sagged a small amount so i may just install a couple heavy duty rear springs to cope with the load

    Not a huge fan of cheap luxury cars, they are OK when new..ish, but once they start to die, they get expensive real quick.

    Very true .....Euro cars are probably only good for 100K ..... then they seem to be a ticking bomb - as boat tow vehicle ...... no thanks

    Gazza you could always get a part time job to help fund your hobbies, or just do some volunteer work to keep you busy when not fishing. Just a thought buddy.
