    Posted: 06 Jun 2017 at 6:50am
I have some time talked to my wife i missed a boat, and would like to get one so Pernille (my dougther) and i cud go out fish on our Fjords. 
My wife said find a set and it will be your Fathers day gift. 
Found a good used trailer first 14 days ago. Last weekend i found a good old Danish build boat and yesterday i picked up a nice used 10hp. 4T. Tohatsu
Now i just cant wait to mount the boat to fish from, and get out there Smile
Damned i love my wife Big smile

Thanks all fore the nice comments.
Yes i am lucky to have such a great Wife and Kids
Got to think when i saw the Pictures again : The Boat actually match the good old 1993 VW Polo i have.
And that the Boat actually is older than the Car. It is made about 1988-90 but in very good condision, and back then thy made quality 

      Have a great day

I bought my wife (EX) a new all singing all dancing washing machine for Christmas ONCE--- never heard the end of it Shocked  Shocked.
I would have killed for a new band saw or lathe for Christmas back then.
Per, maybe you should buy your wife a new outboard for Mothers Day  LOL. Just kidding.......

Finally Pernille and I got time to a little test run today.
I have used some time clean and mount rod holders and a little new Sounder. 
As i bought a special Boat cover i have built a Raised wooden skeleton, so the rain can run off, as there is no drain in it Stern Smile
Must say i am impressed by the 30 year old Boat. There was a bit off wind (about 10m/s) and it handlet it very well. The 4T. Tohatsu sounded like a pleased Cat Wink so i am very pleased aswell Big smile
Here is some more Pict.

Way to go mate, Any fish caught from it will only be a bonus to the years of fun & enjoyment both your self and daughter will experience in it and the memories that will last for ever.
Maybe even get the wife to take a ride and wet a line

Have been working on some modefications on the Boat, as there was no way but the hard to pour water out off it. So i decided to make a drain Well where i will connect a hoose that goes out in the back. Just need to make the hole in the Well, where i can put a Exspansion plug. When sailing the Boat lift and the rear end is free off the water so I can drain it, and put the plug in again. 
It is first time ever working fiberglass, and i think it went quit well Smile

I've only ever done that once, and luckily for me I still had the boat on the trailer before pushing it offEmbarrassed.

Seen many others sunk at boat ramps though. It normally one thing that you only do once but I know a bloke who did it 3 timesLOL
