Bombaloza scull progress by Myles

A week back these boat parts were just laid out, now we see a boat!

Hi Roy,

I'm working in a very narrow restricted space so can't get many good pics.

Cheers Myles

As we are now closed for the 2014 year if you want to order one of these sculls, it would be supplied from January 12th 2015 and on through next year.

Seasons Greetings!

Yes, folks and where ever you may be all the best from us here at which is sunny Hout Bay in South Africa.

Hout Bay beach!

Our 1967 Hillman Californian Imp, out on its first drive since I bought it back mid July this year.
The car is special in that it came off the Rootes Car Co production line on February 3rd 1967.
The new production line was in Linwood, Scotland, UK.

The Vin plate and matching engine number show the letters RCO meaning it was a right hand drive coupe export car. The car was found in a Johannesburg police pound with Mozambique plates on it, which confirms the export,as does the speedometer marked in kilometers, the only one I have ever seen.

All the best for 2015.

The Dix 43' Flying Cloud is for sale

The boat is now placed with a well known broker and also on Gumtree, requests for the boats inventory are starting to come in.

This is a real no nonsense cruising yacht, safe to travel to international waters and in comfort with the right kind of speed you will appreciate.

The price is R1.300,000 which is around U$111,100 right now, delivery can be arranged at whatever it may cost as an extra.

Click on the picture to enlarge it.

Note the new mainsail stack pack and while I was cleaning the boat how wide the side decks are, with the top life line being higher than normal this is a safe yacht to move around on. There are boarding gates port and starboard for ease of access.

The center cockpit is large and safe, with the steering position close to the main and sheet winches, the helmsman can tend the main sheet and port and starboard winches easily.

The hard dodger gives perfect vision with its toughened clear glass windows and seated behind it you are protected from the elements, in port there is an overhead cover.

Contact me for the inventory.
