  1. Nice rig congratulations. 👍👍👍
  2. Like a boss. Hahaha😁
  3. Plug the bungs in and fill it with water. If the owner doesn't let you do it walk away. A mate bought a cheap tinny and did this test after he forked out the cash. Cost him extra $2000 to fill the holes in his new watering can.
  4. Crows sometimes pull off the wiper blades. I've seen them do it as it happened to me. It literally is like they have been sliced off. This was happening in my workplace carpark and the solution was to wrap the wipers in a towel.
  5. I second this. I have a viking that i picked up quite cheap and regularly do solo trips out to the shelf. Can take u for a spin if u want.
  6. I thought that boats aren't necessarily rated for hp of the outboard but more to do with the weight of the engine. The older boats are rated for 2 strokes so when upgrading to a 4 stroke they have to put on lower hp engine because 4 strokes are heavier than 2 strokes.
  7. Winter fishing in the harbour is best done on the rising tide as the warmer ocean water pushes in. Use bread burley and peeled pieces of banana prawns under a float. When the fish start hooking up switch to lures if u like. Tight lines.
  8. I took my 17 foot seafarer viking out a couple months ago in 2.4m swell to 12 mile. I passed three 7 meter aluminium boats on the way. One was a plate boat. I do go hard but would always recommend fiberglass if you are going to be fishing outside most of the time.
  9. Couple of tailor and squid off the stones was a bonus.
