Re: Pee Wee Build

Hopefully this pic is right way up :) I had a lazy weekend so thought I'd tackle some mods to LIL INSANE. First up I've made my own custom adjustable trim tabs. I even went as far as making the rubber bushes between the adjusters and mounting brackets. Came up alright I think. I'm still yet to finis...

Re: Pee Wee Build

Yeah it's fully registered. Every state has different laws but In Victoria it has to registered. I had to have proof of materials and receipts showing that I built it and I can never really sell it to anybody because it doesn't have an ABP ( Australian Builders Plate). Any boat sold in most states b...

Re: Pee Wee Build

Thank you guys for the kind words. I launched the boat on Lake Eildon. It is primarily an irrigation dam so the level is continually changing. It's a great recreational area. I have a 9.9 mercury on the back. At the moment I need to lean forward to get it onto a plane but hoping some changes are goi...

Re: Pee Wee Build

G'day guys. I am happy to report that over the weekend my peewee LIL INSANE was finally launched and tested. I had waited a very long time for this time. I was absolutely wrapped with the weekend. The boat is amazing and drew a fair bit of attention from the locals both at the lake and with talk lat...

Re: Pee Wee Build

Thanks Chubs. I have thought about a windscreen but I think Im pushing it abit. I went a little over the top already. Besides its only a PEEWEE lol. If I could work out an easy design I might think about it. Otherwise I'll leave the windscreen to the next boat :)

Re: Pee Wee Build

Sorry guys its been awhile. LIL INSANE is almost completed. Just finishing off minor details inside like flooring, controls, seating. Unfortunately you wont see it make a splash until the later months of the year now. The weather here now is crappy, cold, windy and rainy. Ill post some new pics next...
