Re: Aussie Belle

Thanks Carl, On Boxing Day the weather looked a bit gloomy but we took the Belle out for a run at the dam. Little bit of wind but not too bad, dam was busy though. Anyway we run the Belle in the dam for a bit over three straight hours with no issues. New carby worked well, and leak in the transmissi...

Re: Aussie Belle

New carby arrived today along with a new pump for the velvet drive as I discovered I had fluid in the bottom of the hull again! Am hoping that the new pump is the issue as there are no other visible leaks anywhere. Going to fit everything up and hope to take her out on Monday or Tuesday. Tony, I wil...

Re: Aussie Belle

Thanks, I am running a Quadrajet at the moment, have been looking at biting the bullet and buying a new 750 Holley Marine, will be about $1,000 by the time I get the adapter plate, carby and fuel rail. But think I will go with that as they are nice and simple. Leaving my run late to get one before X...

Re: Aussie Belle

Hi all, Well today was the day, we re launched the Belle, tipped the bubbly over the bow and a quick swig for me. Video attached of the first steady pass after launching. A friend of mine jumped in and we went for a few runs and put it through some paces, all was good. Wife and kids hopped in and we...

Re: Rub rails

My rubrails were only 3/4 so quite easy to bend around the bow and twist where needed.

Re: Aussie Belle

Thanks Carl and Gayle,

I have done some upholstery work before but this is my first time doing folded pleats. (Hidden stitching)

Carl,

I like attention to detail and being creative.

Re: Rub rails

Hi Brian, My build is a Belle Isle 23ft. Yes the bottom edge of the rub rail is relieved so it hugs the side nice and firm. The end was a pain to round off and then polish, was done a panel beating hammer and dolly. The rubrail at the front is a short nose capping which is two bits of rubrail welded...
