DICK WILLIAMS -AQUA JEWEL
Hi Jim Theodore
Port River Marine,
Just to fill you in on the results of altering the chines and spray rails on the Aqua Jewel. We have had 2 months of constant fishing to test the boat in all kinds of weather. Port Mac Donnell seas are the roughest in Australia so are tested every day. Results were perfect, virtually no spray on the windows in all conditions, at all speeds, slow to fast.
The water hitting the chines is pushed down and away from the boat.
The slight adjustment you made to the chines is perfect, sorry I cannot help it PERFECT is the right word to use. When moored in open water (camping out) there is no slapping noise from the chines so sleeping is great. As you know Aqua Jewel was built especially strong and therefore heavier than other boats but the performance is superb.
The finished boat looked like brand new.
Thank you for a 100% professional job.
