Hmm I wonder what an R100 cake tastes like?!

Happy birthday Jack!

What a ripper of a cake!!!

Earlier today, a 7m runabout lost its outboard off Thompson’s Bay.
Luckily the quick action by a nearby boat was able to help the stricken vessel ashore stopping it from taking on more water.
Upon arrival, Resolutes crew deemed the major structural failure a job for a salvage operator.

Im pretty sure they glassed over the box the motor was shipped in and bolted it to the stern . We see a lot of conversions from I/o to outboard in Florida none of them look like a big box .

Really surprised it got to Thompson's Bay. Even by dodgy standards that looks to be setting a new benchmark!

250 hp SUZUKI FOR SALE. Only been in the water ONCE

Very unfortunate event for the three boys who had come over for a weekend diving competition. Lucky we were near by with the team at sea Renity marine to aid them. With there help and on lookers help to help remove the 250hp Suzuki of the back of the boat with out causing further damage roll it into an inflatable 2.5m tender and drive it to the barge for transport to Perth. We then plugged a few holes and with the owners following behind in my little run about towed it very slowly back to fremantle safe and sound with some relieved boys. To the lady who screamed at us as we parked a 50ft in the boat ramp near the red hearing while we untied and secured his vessel as we took longer than two minutes where’s your boating spirit. Obviously there was an issue which you could clearly see but all crew and what’s left of the boat safely accounted for.

Big island charters for the salvage job if you get stuck😎

Went fishing for whiting and pulled in a motor!!!!!

Another victim of self acclaimed Boat builders some who even have the hide to advertise their business as Shipwrights, pitty all who have fallen victim to their crappie workmanship lack of engineering knowledge and inflated prices. It's about time this trade became licensed as millions of unsuspecting people go to sea every day with friends and family on board not knowing what's under their feet, we need to stop the diy's and the pretenders from putting boating enthusiasts at risk, bloody shame but lucky these people survived!

I like the fact everyone is thinking the pod was a home job or done on the cheap... when it could just be old and was probably full of rott just like your stringers and transom need replacing when they start to rott. This is a maintenance issues that's all

What the is that looks like the boat been converted as im sure they have an internal motor on that type of boat looks like sailing is only the option for these lads now ⛵⛵

It looks like the motor mounts are still attached . Structural failure in the engine mounts caused by ???

Oh dear! It was fine in forward gear ,just reversing was the issue.!!!

"Your quote is too much, I've got a mate who used fibreglass once so I'm going to talk to him and have a go myself" 🤣🤣

So what should the builder should of done is what. I only think of 2 options. Either extend new stingers to connect to old ones and the build his box or I would just fill in the hole from old motor and just bolt on a motor bracket like a a 2nd spare motor.

Love some of the comments, made me laugh.

Couple of blokes trying to find a few bust ups and they've done themselves a right mischief, 5k for a POD Ha hold my beer

I made this.. out of an old pallet 😂

Cheapest price quote is rarely a good idea 🤣

What 5 grand for a pod! Naahhh I'll make me own

It looks like a project boat that was sold on gumtree last week.

But the guy at Bunnings said it was “marine grade ply”!

Lucky they made it to Rottnest at all.

A 250 a bit out of engineering for that setup I think

Home made transom pod...😟😟🤔🤔

You blokes got ripped, I built my pod for 200bucks nothing to it 😬😂😂😂

Bugger, not looking like too much framework on that pod . Expensive mistake

It’s not even lunchtime and we’re already flat out!
This morning Resolute rescued a 4.7m centre console with 4pob and a missing prop off Swirl Reef near the west end of Rotto. Whilst RoVeR 2 took in tow a 7m cuddy cab with electrical issues off South Beach. With both boats going back to Leeuwin, the 8kn race to get to the ramp first was on! 😜
Don’t forget to log your journey today!
