  1. I think they are a bandaid and a dangerous one at times It will plane quicker It will lose top end speed You will have 4 ugly holes in your cav plate You will be more likely to snap the cav plate if someone stands on your new step/foil You may have unexpected handling issues If you boat is subject to broaching it may be magnified It may dig in at speed and make you carp your daks in a following sea when the sea is travelling faster then you it can cause issues again crap your daks Look at your setup first Weight distribution props engine Height Trim with wedges if necessary Repower with correct horsepower Repower with a lighter engine All options id consider before fitting one in a boat used on the open sea
  2. why does it need a foil ?
  3. if its a tiller it has no gauges to begin with so maybe just a tacho would do Control Box $350-$500 depending onmodel 2 control cables $100 each depending on length Wiring loom $349 quintrex want $1800-$2500 for the console with a helm and cable, price varied and tbh the dealers priced acording to how much effort they wanted to go to or they just guessed it seems
  4. i have the same boat with a 50 four stroke Why do you hate the tiller ? i found i had to cut the seat pole down to almost rear deck height when using the spigot attached to the front of the back deck Solo i did find it leans to the right a little so i just fill the bait tank and move my gear to the left
  5. if you can afford the fuel for the boat and tow vehicle and want a pure offhosre boat glass is the best option the deadrise you can get in glass boats and hull shapes are superior to the plate boat versions but you pay for it in weight and the hp needed to push that weight
  6. in what way does the crusher leave it for dead ? my experience is the barcrusher has a very fine entry to get a decent ride and this has some flaws when in a heavy sea and burying the nose quite deep into the wave in front at times
  7. for enclosed and open waters 1 is required nottation as more then one may be required depending on the boat from the rms maritime website Bilge pump – Manual or auto (vessel with covered bilge(s) or closed under-floor compartments other than airtight void spaces and must be capable of draining each compartment)
  8. do no u se those self serve carwashes if you have a bare ally boat they put mild acids into help clean the muck off easier and it eats or etchs the aluminium also its used over and over again and is pretty nasty
  9. depends on what risk your boat is at lots of through hull fittings, or bait tanks with over flows then add more capacity a 360gl pump after a few m of hose and 50cm lift will only pump about 20l per minute a 20mm through hull transom pump failure will pump 10 times that into a boat
  10. why do you have to keep topping them up ? that implies your losing grease clean axle good seals good bearings a dust cap and check every 6 months simple
  11. buy decent bearings timkens etc not the rubbish from the auto or boat shops
  12. do ou do the same thing over and o ver the same spot sover and over ? i have maybe 100 different spots just in the harbour same for botany the hawksbury down south just have to keep trying different spots and techniques
  13. i use to start mine every saturday morning after mowing the lawns let it idle for 5 mins then turn off id tell him that what your doing is not against the law and within your rights to do also dont flush at those car wash places the water is damaging to engines and ally boats
  14. what methods are you using ? not many will give advice if they think you are using bait as a lot of smaller fish get gut hooked on bait v artificial lures the fish are there all round, would be suicidal for a species if 100% of breeding stock moved at the same time
  15. realistically i think your budget is too low with children you need shade, someone where to rest and high sides and from experience the trips have to be short 1-2 hours max as they get bored easily what waterways or areas do you plan to fish . boat ownership is not cheap well quality time on the water boat ownership is not cheap 3k will realistically get you a 13ft tinny on a ok trailer with a sub 10 year old engine
