Re: Pee Wee Build

You guys have been a great help to date so here is my next question. What type of steering
system can I use for my peewee?. I have a Mercury outboard to be used. Obviously I need a very short cable system but what is best? Rotary or Rack and what brand? Thanks again.

Re: Little Fellow inboard.

Actually mk e I have designed my boat to accommodate myself. I understand Little Fellow was built for a younger person but, The topic was about putting an inboard in a small boat and not about being a bad parent. Unfortunately I have no kids and this is just a project for myself.

Re: Pee Wee Build

So spring has arrived and the weather has been beautiful. I dragged out the project today and gave it a coat of paint but I need help guys? I have completed 2 coats of epoxy undercoat but, as my partner described it, the hull looks lumpy. I must have done a crappy filling job and it looks shocking. ...

Re: PeeWee Build

Looks fantastic, well done. I cant believe how quickly you've completed it.

Ive slowed right down on mine as we are coming into winter so nothing is drying very well.

Reo trollabout kit

Gday guys, there are many forums with people wanting to build
Small inboard boats. Although I did toy with this idea, I have given up. But in the
process came across the REO Trollabout (inboard trolling motor kit).
Was just wondering if people had seen this and have any pictures???

Cheers.

small inboards

Gday all. In a quest to have something slightly different and unique Im gonna throw this out there. I know the pee wee is only like 8 foot because Im currently building one but what do you think the chances are of fitting it with one of those powerski inboard jets. Its a bit far fetched but would be...

Re: Pee Wee Build

Gday everyone. After a flying start with my build things suddenly slowed down. I hadnt touched the project for nearly 12 months due to other commitments but finally Ive found time to restart. Here are a few recent updates. Finding the right timber and even marine ply has been a task and a half.

Re: Pee Wee Build

Just a quick update. Things have really slowed down here but are still coming alone nicely. Ive had a few power tool failures which havent helped the cause. Anyway this is where Im at.

Re: Pee Wee Build

Your very Intrigued with my blue Holden Vu SS ute hehe. It sure will be used to tow my pee wee. I may even paint it in the same colour. The ute runs the almighty 5.7L gen3 Chev. Great motor just prowls along. Hopefully my pee wee will too.
