New Boat Project
« on: Thu 23 Feb 18:48 2017 »
Got myself a new project boat to play with.
It's a Haines Hunter 565F Centre Console on a tandem trailer.

Here we go again - sucker for projects.

Transom is rock solid, so are the stringers. Floor has soft spots and partly removed.
Hull needs some chips repaired but is solid.
Has the original console, bow rail, after market bimini and brand new 200lt ss underfloor tank never fitter.

Trailer is solid, no rust  but is old school so will get a new one built to suit the boat.


These are sometimes called the unicorn boat because they are so rare I haven't seen one for sale for a lot of years and never under $20,000.
They are a legend performer and I think well worth spending the time to resurrect her, especially as I only paid $1400 for the lot.

    I haven't told her - 6m long, in the front yard and she didn't notice... or didn't say anything!
    That's what you get after 35 years of training

    If I ever get a Mrs I will require some tips on training her.

    This will be off shore only or just used for everything?

    Know they are sort after hull

    Offshore and Bay mainly, I've got a few smaller boats for freshwater and estuary.

    Split the hull taking off the deck today.
    Cut out the old floor and ground everything back ready for a new floor.
    No surprises - stringers solid, transom solid - just a few mods to accommodate a new under floor kill tank.
    Good mates are worth their weight in gold.

    Got a bit more done on the Haines 565 today.
    Made floor templates using some 50mm scrap strips - worked well.
    Ran some 100mm poly under the floor for steering and cabling - the short bit on top is excess left over. The vertical tubes will be trimmed - inside the console and under the transom coming.
    Formed up side pockets - need to trim and glass them in.
    Used expanding foam to fill under the floor for buoyancy, it also stiffened the hull up a lot.
    Cut out ply and glasses the floor in.
    Flow-coat tomorrow.

    yeah I was going to say the same - leaps and bounds!

    $1400! that would be about 300 bucks in "wife dollars" then eh? (Cost me $300 dear!  ::)  )
