28_12_07_-_Vampire,_RNZAF_Museum.JPG
De Haviland Vampire221 viewsOne of my favourite jet fighters (Along with the Me262). These were used back in the days when New Zealand actually had an airforce. Since then, our lefty dictator, comrade Helen, has decreed that we don't need strike aircraft, and the former RNZAF Skyhawks sit in open storage, slowly rotting away. RNZAF Museum, Christchurch

Hanmer Horses197 viewsWe went for a three hour ride through the bush near Hanmer. Lou had Shar, I had Katie. Shar is a very docile girl, Katie is a bit of a prima donna, and did not like any other horse being near her. She is lovely to ride, though, and very easy to get the rhythm of in the rising trot.

Goodbye126 viewsSimon makes sure that he hasn't scuffed the shine off his shoes during the concert, while John and Roger engage in a slapping session. Nick, as always, remains aloof from the horseplay.

Tabs1.jpg
Tabs on147 viewsThe tabs finish off the transom nicely. There is a slight curve at each edge, so I had to build up the transom in order to give the tabs a flat mounting surface.Apr 10, 2009
Tabs2.jpg
Trim Tab153 viewsThe built up area on the transom to give the tabs a flat mounting area can be clearly seen. I'm very happy with the result, considering I haven't done any fibreglassing for 21 years. I did the painting using my airbrush (Pointless using the spraygun for such a small area), and there are 6 coats of paint - 2 undercoat, 2 primer, 2 topcoat.Apr 10, 2009
MarcFish.jpg
Marc's First Fish147 viewsMarc's first legal sized snapper. It may not look like much, but was over 30cm. He is going to enjoy eating the fillets, and has decided how it will be prepared.Apr 10, 2009

Really going158 viewsUp to cruising speed of 28-30 knots. Later I took her up to 40 knots; she can go faster, but I don't think I can.Jan 10, 2009
