the TWITCHIN album

ALBERT PARK back in the day


Most of you would be aware of these web sites but just thought I'd share what I believe are the best Australian speedboat sites online.... besides us of course ;-) .Just where I get my kicks and in no particular order.
1;  C.A.W.P.B.A. >>> http://www.cawpba.com/
2;  OzBoatRacers >>> http://ozboatracers.myfreeforum.org/
3;  WAKE.com  >>>  http://wake.com.au/
4;  The Board >>>  http://board.net.au/yabbse/index.php
5;  Australian Speed Boat Community  >>>  http://www.facebook.com/groups/224406014293719/
6; Warby Motorsports >>>  http://warbymotorsport.com/
7; Old skool water ski racing museum >>>  http://www.facebook.com/groups/22546363317/
8; V.S.B.C.  >>>  http://www.vsbc.org.au/
9; V.O.C.  >>>  http://www.voc.com.au/
10; Chine Walkers  >>>  http://www.facebook.com/ChineWalkers?fref=ts
*** and of course, because of my bias; FILAM BOATS >>> http://www.facebook.com/filam.boats
I do visit many other sites that float my boat so hope to work on an extensive links page in the future , sorry if I left you out at the moment (especially interstate organisations).

Whilst I have your attention, regulars may have noticed I've done a bit of housework and tidied up the tags (labels) function a bit on our earliest installments. Also hope that the new blog search bar found on top right of page helps us navigate the site a bit better, should be quicker and easier to find favorite older posts instead of remembering which month they were posted.
***Please keep sending in your boat pics from past and present. We would love to take a look at your baby be it mint or beaten up. Anything and everything is all very appreciated.
Happy boating :-)

In my eye's, this beautiful Nankervis was the star of the past weekends V.S.B.C Eppalock Gold Cup. Trav and his sidekick (sorry I didn't catch your name mate, you done such a brilliant job too) were handling sweep and other official course duties in 'DASH' which is powered by a 351 Cleveland and has been a part of the family for 15 years now. ...She was an absolute delight to watch sparkling in the sun all day. Great work fellas.

"MANDY" ....skiff

Although connected, not to be confused with the beautiful 'lady of the lake' "MANDY" runabout . If anyone would like to have a read of the complete article just yell out. Click on tags to find other "MANDY" pics.  cheers.
