  1. Is this a good first boat?

    Best of luck with the inspection and keep us posted with the outcome
  2. Is this a good first boat?

    Certainly looks very tidy for the price. hopefully the inspector doesn't find any issues! What is the $2000 of work he is saying needs to be done?
  3. Is this a good first boat?

    Modern aluminium is a load better apparently, I still get sick, occasionally, on any hull if not actively distracting myself The older 2 strokes also don't help with the stomach.
  4. Is this a good first boat?

    All personal preference, lots of people don't like how aluminium rides. I prefer aluminum because it is easier and cheaper to repair, lighter to tow.

    Something like this[Boatsales]%26BoatType%3D[Power])%26Price%3Drange[7500..10000])%26Usage%3D[Fishing])%26State%3D[Victoria])%26(((SiloType%3D[Dealer used boats]|SiloType%3D[Dealer new boats])|SiloType%3D[Private used boats])|SiloType%3D[Demo and near new boats]))&pso=0&pss=Premium would be a good unit as a first boat, in my opinion. Lighter to tow, roller trailer so it's easy to launch and retrieve, looks ready to rock

    That's very neat! Are you only considering fiberglass ones?
  7. Where to Install Berley Pot?

    Do you have any local metal fab friends? If it were me, I would have a piece the same as the transducer mount welded on. Bunnings, or any local hardware store should have aluminium bolts.

    Get aluminium mounting hardware. Dissimilar metals + salt water, makes for a bad time
  9. Batemans Bay

    The name is deceiving, it isn't a snapper hot spot. Snapper Island is a decent bait ground though. Northeast side is the place to go. Have caught some decent flathead on the southeast side too. Need to be careful off exposed rock there, it comes out of nowhere.
  10. Batemans Bay

    Yes they are
  11. Batemans Bay

    What safety gear do you have with that boat? Makes a difference to where you can go
  12. Confused about which boat to buy

    My brother got the Polycraft 6m centre console and won't go back to ally or glass
  13. should i get it?

    Keep an eye on Facebook Marketplace, there are a lot of really good deals that come up. Just need to be primed and ready to jump on it.
  14. Drum Traps, legal or illegal?
  15. Forster

    If you get bored at Forster, drive 1hr north to Crowdy Head. Great marina, lots of close by reefs and shoals that fish really well. A point from Rick's post above; Don't forget about the marine park at Forster, it is rare that fisheries are forgiving.
