  8. trim tabs

    I have owned 4 boats and my most recent 6.5 meter half cab has them fitted. Personally I find them an excellent feature. It seems if you have a high profile boat with cabin that can get pushed in a wind or in certain sea conditions the ability to be able to level the boat is fantastic. I was given some instruction on how to use them when I brought the boat and had the first ride. I would get them again on a similar size or larger boat in the future. I also spoke to a person from Barcrusher at the boat show. He very knowledgeable and helpful. His advice was for trim tabs over 6m. Cheers
  9. Big YFT

    Fantastic effort I am sure it would be worth the pain. Dave
  10. Outside Botany Bay

  11. Venturing off shore

    Hi raiders I would like to target some game and sports fish off shore from Sydney(port hacking) I have a 6-7m glass half cab with 200 hp 250 litres all 2yrs old and serviced each winter with all the required safety gear including EPIRB. My thoughts were given I am new to off shore in Sydney was to start at some FADS off Port Hacking and venture to The Peak and 12 Mile in the coming weeks. I have been doing a lot of reading in the forum and eventually I would like to go to Browns Mountain. I would be grateful to the experienced raiders to comment on my plan especially with regard to suitability of the boat and the weather conditions considered possible. I would also appreciate to know regulars who would be willing for me to follow side by side to gain some experience and confidence. Just to keep in touch on the VHF would be good peace of mind. Feel free to give some help on the fishing techniques. Thanks Bucaneer
