Hi CBA. I am writing a story on the history of couta boats for Peninsula Essence magazine. I was wondering if it would be ok to use some of the images I've found on your facebook page to go with my article. I can see that some are copyrighted to Alex McKInnon so I wouldn't choose those, but may I use any of the others. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

Great action pic..

Well done Rod Martin and crew

Great photo!!!!

I am helping a friend refurbish his Couta. We have taken out approx 400kgs of lead ballast in lead Pigs. Is this ballast necessary in these boats? Grateful for any comments.

Found this in the attic... I’m in New Zealand but come to Australia regularly it measures 470mm x 390mm it’s a framed print entitled “Couta boats” pm for offers

Nice

Im in Auckland

I have a few in that series, he captured the coutaboats so well...

I am new to this site, however I have been helping a friend refurbish his Couta Boat.

I would be grateful if some one can answer the following question.

One of the things that we removed in the process of cleaning the bilges and under floor area was the lead ballast. This consists of lead pigs approx 30kgs each. There are about 15 of them.

The boat is a 20ft Couta with standard Gaff rig. From previous dinghy sailing, the lighter the boat the better. Is it necessary to have the ballast to improve the stability of the boat, or is it possible to leave it out.

I should be grateful for any suggestions.Thank you in advance.

"Nothing worth having comes easy" -Bobby Hollywood.
My 1955 Couta/netting boat was launched the year that I was born, so I must keep both of us in good condition.
Months ago during storms Gypsy's rudder was sent airborne then disappeared into Mornington harbour.
Through perseverance and part fluke I found it on the seabed and retrieved it. This weeks major chore is to return it to the stern of Gypsy so I can Motor it onto a trolley to be winched into the MYC yard for its annual paint and tart up.
The go kart tyres that I'm painting are to be used as old style fenders... stay tuned for further progress...

Gypsy gets its fair share of attention at Mornington Fisherman's jetty, John Mc Coy shot this image using infra red film.

Fran Bainbridge created this artistic image of Gypsy last year....
