mini tug and jettys

Jetty at rileys flat Gundagai

Polly the dog on jetty at Gundagai
This is Rosie on another jetty I built with the owners son Andrew in Wylangta in Tasmania this one was made out of rounds and wired together.

This is the jetty I built on the river bank at Gundagai.  It was made from timber from the rubbish tip, I bought and some screw rod to put it all together at a cost of $8Au. The river was down and it will have water under it for a couple of months of the year when they are irrigating out on the riverina. cheers Stewart

mini tug part four and final episode

Launch day arrived and the tug performed to all expectations on sharp turns it would submerge the transom corners and spin like a top. It took spray over the bow and wet the windows and it remained dry in the wheelhouse:)....I think that the journey was worth the effort and would recommend anyone to have a go, the tools used were Titon table saw, Dewalt drills and saws but any brand will do. Total price including boat would come in under $300 Australian....cheers Stewart
