I have sent SX-2 away to be professionally re fibreglassed below the waterline .
It is too much for me now .
The guy doing it lives two doors away but his workshop is in Bankstown.
SX-2 was built in Bankstown in 1961 a few hundred metres away on Canterbury Rd .
The original twin Johnsons were supplied from Hoskins Ave ,a few hundred metres the other end of his street .
On a different note ,as I have had the girl for 20 years I took the opportunity to try to contact the original owner through his business he started in 1946 .
Duralux Paints ,before Dulux and still going, as he is .
His son has responded enthusiastically and over a number of communications is very keen on 'the board' and has been supplied some historical photos .
As I about to repaint the topsides I attach some original photos with the idea to go the that way again .
It looks like a boat of today's style even though it is 54 yrs old .
What do you think?
The curved 1961 or the current straight line ?
