few quick tinny mod ideas

Postby ducky » Mon Dec 23, 2013 8:26 pm

Hey guys, some of you may know I scored a little 3m tinny a while ago, I've tested it out and she goes alright. I'm taking it out tomorrow for a crack down Sorrento way on the squidoodles with a mate. Just after a few ideas that I can do on the cheap first thing tomorrow after a run to a boat store to make the day a little easier.

putting this here both as a shopping list and keen for any ideas people have.

It's a bare 3m hull with 3 floatations, I currently have.

anchor, rope, chain.
drift chute.
flares.
fire extinguisher.
oars and oarlocks
dolphin torch
bung, lol.
net

shopping list,
a couple of rod holders tomorrow just for vertical storage.
clamp on rod holders if the price is right
battery for dolphin torch
spare bung
2x yoke life jackets
new fuel
new motor transom mount bolt handle thing, I know what I mean

Whitworth's Marine & Leisure (on Elizabeth St near the Queen Vic Market) has some decent stuff at a reasonable price

Cheers slotzz. I ended up spending $320 getting 2 new seats and mounts, 2 yoke life jackets, and the rod holders I mentioned.

All for the motor to sh*t itself after 90 seconds and we fished off the pier instead. Haha
