G'day Dave and Neil,
I've been off the radar for quite sometime. Had a great holiday in NY in October, even visited Washington DC for the day! What a lovely place that is.

As for your G3, wow finally... she is with you, I bet you can't wait to rig her.  Do you have suitable boating areas for that hull down at the Island?

Hello all, It's been a long time since I've been active, but I have the bug (again) I have been looking for a G3 for ages having missed out on the only Victorian specimen that strangely vanished from its home in Newcomb Geelong some years ago. A board member found this on Gumtree in Perth WA and I purchased it for $500. It was stored over there for a few years but I had it transported early this year to Melbourne. It is in surprisingly good condition (solid) and the fittings are included. The motor came off my Stylecraft that I sold some years ago and I wacked it on to transport the lot to its new home on Flinders Island. It is now in Bridport Tasmania after travelling across on the Spirit and then it will catch another ferry to Flinders Island. I am relocating full time to Flinders Island where I will give the rig a total rebuild. I hope to inform you all of its progress

More research, I found this in some raw 16mm footage of the 1956 Olympic rowing that was at Lake Wendouree. I scanned every frame and saw many red Johnson outboards but this one caught my eye. Its not red but appears the same colour as the varnished hull. It looks very similar to my gold Johnson

Hi gang,

Just found a few new GLM carby and fuel pump rebuild kits that I thought I'd see if anyone here wanted.  I no longer have Mercs, so no point keeping them ;-)

I brought them from the US a few years back for a late 1960's Merc inline 6, but will fit heaps of 60/70's Mercs.

All are new and unopened kits.

Prefer to sell as a lot

- 3x Diaphragm (Merc 1395-4808-1 or GLM 40401 or Sierra 18-703).
- 2x Check Valve Kits (Merc 21-30430A1 or GLM40180).

Not sure what they are worth here in Aus, but just checked and about $30/$40 respectively landed off eBay from the US.

$75 the lot.

Your V4 would be an unbelievable match on a Haines 17R. I would really love to find one of those hulls and have it professionally repaired and restored!
That would be a great ski and social boat.

It was just one of those epiphany moments, I was wondering what I should mount the Jono on, and then it came to me, Gt150. Ski raced a V143/85 Merc in the 70ís, was a great little rig, quicker than the Spyders!
                    Glad to hear your travelling well, N
