Hey Cookie, you're spiro's mate yeh?
Heard you acquired some beastly history, congratulations!!!
Yeh, I'm leaving it a transom mount and low floor, the way it rolled out mate.The process has become longer than I intended but oh well, what's the rush I suppose.The grinding and cutting has taken it's toll on me though.. seeing a chiro nearly every week, I'm not joking..All the best with the resto mate and if you need chat yell out.
You're more than welcome to come up anytime, however it's not at work as I had it there in order to finalise the grinding.
Its back at a mates place who's helping me with the project.
Call me at work and we'll catch up.As far as the low floor goes I mentioned low floor as most people are only familiar with the eden Craft Formula up my way and are surprised at the freeboard of mine.
The next stage is begining this weekend.
thanks for your comments... looks like you have some work to do ... typical early Haines you have ....i have also rebuilt 4 of these Haines boats... if you would like some advice on how and what to use to rebuild this , i would be more than happy to talk to you ....
i would like to say also that we are the new owners of Edencraft Boats ...home of the legendary 233 formula... and we are setting our new factory in Geelong
our website is www.edencraft.com.au it is under construction at the moment but still some info for you there ...
my email is email@example.com or you can contact me on mobile 0402 1140 71
this is your lucky day... i know that leigh at alfab windscreens does make it new... as for the wave breaker..i just unpacked 2 moulds that are 2 piece windows....mmmm now you have me thinking... im still running repairs ,,,i could convert your transom for you if needed... or put a ballys pod on it ... our pods are now apart of edencraft and are built to marine survey standards,,
i have been through all the moulds and i am sorry to say that the original 233 haines / 2 piece wave breaker has gone walk about... i could make you a new part.... but it would cost to much..as we would have to form a new mould....but..... if you were thinking of a new screen made of alloy and toughened glass ... i know that alfab in melbourne have the templates...as i have purchased these screens before...if you ring me ...i should be able to get a better price for you on this as a manufacture
.... we are now in production of edencraft boats and have now gone composite ... we are now laying up with a full layer of carbon fibre....
i have just added a new pic to my profile..... full carbon fibre.. hull.. you should be the first to look at it... as this is kept quite.. this site has first option to view this... feel free to come to our new factory for a tour
