Hey Guys

So Boat had its first test run last weekend and all i can say is wow!, it sits well in the water is dry and for a 4.5m Tinny has Massive deck space. Goes quite well in the chop to for a v punt i was quite surprised on what it can push into!

I still have a few more weeks and bits and bobs i want to do but all in all Chris Has been a Pleasure to work with.

Cannot recommend him enough if you guys are looking to buy a boat in this size you should give him a call and have a chat. its one solid boat and has been great being able to add things like the Rod locker storage and things that you just cant get when you buy the Production Boats.

He put in a lot of work in the last week to make sure it was delivered on time.

If you are looking for a boat like this and want a test run more then happy to take potential customers for a run to see for them selves.

Any way here are some picks but i haven't really had a chance to get a good lot of them.

Oh almost forgot if you guys are looking for a new motor as well then don't hesitate to call Garry(Spaniard King) at Silver Service Marine for a price on a Honda you might be very surprised on how competitive Honda is getting plus with a 7 year warranty you cant go wrong!!

Cheers Dan

Yes the interior is huge! i cant believe how much space it has for a boat thats only 4.5m long. Plus with the eskies down the back and rods in the rod locker its all useable space nothing is left on the deck in the way! Which is what i was hoping for and it worked out a treat!

    Hey Mate

    Its been great so far the motor it self but not to where i want it so have a bit of playing with props and other things to just try and give it a bit more grunt.
    As the hull its self weighs about 450 kg its just taking a little longer then what i want to get it on the plane. Again this is due to how much weight i have to load into this boat sometimes as we do a lot of camping by boat so you can imagine it can get fairly loaded. i will loose in top speed but will gain in getting it out the hole which i am happy with.

    Currently at cruise it is using 7.5l an hour for 36km, at around 4000rpm which is amazing as that is nothing! So very economical and also very quiet.

    So on that basis above i could head over to Tangalooma for the day swim and return for about $20.00 on fuel. That's a cheap day out if you ask me!

    Cheers Dan

    Cheers Brett

    To be honest the boat has changed again as the Honda 60hp was just struggling a little bit for how i use the boat, the Boat and motor came in it 820 kg which was a bit further then what we anticipated.

    Originally the boat was rated for a 60hp Max but we will be putting a 90hp on the Back this Friday, Expensive lesson for me but I just couldn't leave it the way it was.

    It will be re Rated for the new 90hp Donk.

    Cheers Dan
