Hello from Oz

Postby Shaunh » Sat Dec 30, 2017 2:08 am

Hi all. I am Shaun and live in Australia. The plan is to build a barrellback so i am currently in the research phase. I have a set of preliminary plans on order. My day job is running a timber yard and commercial joinery so the timber and ply aspect should be straight forward i hope. Over the years i have supplied lots of boat builders with various components so now its time for me to have a crack at it. The motor / gearbox and other gear is something i need look into as i don't know much about all this. Hoping these forums will shed a bit of light. Thanks for making them available.
Cheers Shaun

Welcome Shaun! There is lots of combined experience on these forums so don't hesitate to ask any questions! I look forward to following along!

There are quite a few Australian builders here so you should have some "local" support as well.

Hi All

well i took up Jenko's offer and had a day out yesterday in northern Victoria. Apart from an absolutely fabulous drive through our Snowy Mountains I had a first hand look ( and listen ) at an awesome Riviera. I was thinking a Barrellback but maybe not now. Big thanks to Peter for is time yesterday, I was up till two in the morning doing some more research as a result!!
Trying to figure out a 1UZ Lexus option just to be a bit different. When I know what i am doing i will let you all know. If anyone has done the Lexus motor option I would love to know about it.

Cheers Shaun
