    I have just started the construction of a 17m catamaran. I am building using Du-Flex. I am looking for someone to lend a hand on a casual basis. It would suit retired or semi retired handyman or tradesperson, or anyone that likes messing around with boats. I was using someone local but he has been unwell lately and cannot continue. I know this is a long shot but worth typing a few words I thought. The boat is located very close to Mandurah in Western Australia. I have a boat for sale and once this has been sold I will be in a position to get things moving faster. Anyone know anyone, or know anyone who knows anyone. Thanks.

    Gidday!
    Just registered thanks to a pm by a mate who saw this and gave me the heads up on another forum (cheers Hans :cool: )

    Mate Im down south of you in Brunswick Junction and could possibly give you a few hours now and again... possibly more next year

    Theres a possiblity I could possibly round up a couple of young helpers (mid twenties) as well as I have a nephew in Pinjarra and a son in law I could rope in as I go past Harvey and another in Australind who doesnt shirk hard yakka for his new ubeaut father in law... depending on what theyre up to on a given weekend... I may even be able to convince the father in law to wander up and give a hand when hes not up in Darwin on his 10mtr cat... bit of first hand knowledge you know?

    Im also after a boat... so any info on the one your selling would be good and we may be able to do some sort of deal??? ;)

    As yet I havent spent any time working this forum out but will do ASAP
    Ive also got a good shed of woodworking tools and machines so if needed some work could be done down here and bought up as required.

    Cheers
    Shane

    let this be a warning-

    just joking of course.

    A very big welcome, and great to see you here Shane, I hope you stick around- and all the best for John and his project:)

    Hans.

    LOL,
    yeah, with that last image in mind, i'd be reaching for the flying pig smiley:p sorry, scratch that, the flying flock of pigs smiley:D
    shy and embarressed Shane, sheesh.. now I've seen everything;)

    and ah, sorry for the joking around John, on a more serious note,
    if you click on John's login name and select 'view public profile' it will take you to here where it appears you can either email him or send him a PM.
    You can I have just noticed also visit his website.

    All the best fella's, I'll make my exit now.

    Did I just say exit:rolleyes:, sorry, one more,

    Shane, I just clicked on your profile, and it appears that I cannot send you a PM or an email either:confused:
    Maybe it is something to do with being a brand new member, and a automatic restriction on what you can do until you hit a few more posts or after a certain time (to stop spamming and such)? I know I have encountered these sort of things in other forums.

    so, short way around, if you want, shoot me a PM over at woodenboat, and I will pass it on to John from here, or just start making yourself known and get that post count up a bit. shouldn't be a problem eh:rolleyes::D

    Hans.

    Hi Hans - and Shane, Yes that is the boat I need to sell (on the web site) before I can really get things moving. I can probably carry on at this rate for around 6 months then things start getting a bit expensive - oh and the money will have ran out too. So the boat will have to be gone by then. Got your e-mail will send you some details of were the boat is etc and where we are at
    Thanks John
