Mason Bay

The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

This is what the new helm looks like in position.Note also engine controls installed. The one on the right is the 'stop' lever. Below is the autopilot and I have not trimmed any wires as you can see!

  1. Looks excellent Gary. You have all that clear finish to eventually wear off....
    Like many others I am looking forward to launching date. Mason Bay is going to be great cruiser.

  2. Don...Thanks for the comments. Hope to get in the tide mid-Jan and sit in the mud for a while. Still have to start the wiring proper!!

  3. It is so nice to see the boat finishing going well. Just enjoy all that space. 12 months after launching you will have it staked up with so much gear you will be saying she is not big enough! Really enjoying watching your project, might have to start another one for myself.....
