Hi all!
Been lurking for a few weeks and thought I had better join up, say Hi and introduce myself,
just bought my very first ever boat, (have been heavily into cars and trailers for a while) and of course it needs a full restoration.

It is a 1959 Bell Boy Banshee and is in pretty sad condition, I will post some pictures of now and as I go for the resto, heaps and heaps of great info and help on this forum - thank you all so much!

I am located in Melbourne, Victoria in Australia and have found a couple of other Banshee owners down here, but not very many.
any advice on finding parts for these boats woudl be greatly appreciated

Matt
:woohoo:

P.S. Thanks Ken for sorting out my log in problems and steering me on the right track
