Double Eagle by Col. Rob Bradley, Brisbane, Australia

4 March 2011

This is our Double Eagle which we have built in Brisbane, Australia. The project was started in 2003 and because of a few health issues along the way, a house move, and building a new workshop at our new house its taken us until now to get to this stage.

This boat has been an absolute joy to build and we are delighted at the result.

The boat that you see here needs a final paint job, stainless steel bow rails and the spray rails fitted.

The engine is a 53 HP inboard Diesel and it, together with the drive shaft, propeller and hydraulic steering is yet to be installed but we are getting there. When finished we will use it in open water about 20 miles due East of Brisbane at a place called Deep Tempest where we catch beautiful big Snapper.

By the way, we estimate the boat should be capable of reaching about 14 knots for those of you who may be interested. If anybody wants more info just send me an and I'll be happy to oblige.
