Here's my Brooker 475 Freedom with 60hp Yamaha 4 stroke... I'm a happy boater!

Say hi if you see me on the water!

PS. the punching bag isn't actually on the boat.

PPS. If you see me at the ramp, give me room I'm still learning to reverse the trailer! :074:

My new baby, all 2005 model, 42 hours on the clock, as new.

460 Ally Craft Bay Raider, Great hull and rides the swell very well, beautiful to fish out of, very stable. Sits on a Dunbier Trailer.

The 60hp Yamaha 4 Stroke on the back is amazing as well, it's so quiet, uses bugger all fuel and has heaps of power.

Here's my girls, the missus driving our Quintrex 5.3mtr bowrider, 90 etec on the back. We like it, it takes us fishing and shoots the kids around on the tube.

Here's my new purchase, a 5.3m Quintrex Freedomsport Bowrider with a 115hp 2-stroke Yamaha. A bit bigger than what I set out to get, but we all know size matters! Has now been christened for fishing and tubing, hope to get a bit more use out of it before the kids soccer season kicks in. I also need the practice at getting the bloody thing back on the trailer by myself. Nightmare!

Hello all,

Byron has asked that I place this post in here on his behalf. It is a duplicate of an existing post.


This is my jew boat. It's a 15 1/2 foot Sea Hunter side console made by the Mayfair Plant in Queensland. When my boat was manufactured Mayfairs also made boats under the name of Stessyl and Clarke having taken these companies over in the late nineties. In approx 2002 Mayfairs ended the boat manufacturing side of their operations to concentrate on making trailers namely the well known Tinker and Redco brands.

I have owned over 20 boats in my time and I must say this is the best boat I have ever fished in, it has three swivel chairs i.e. two in the stern area and one in the bow area- with a 70 litre ice box located longwise hard up against the rear of the side console unit provides a seat for a 4th person. This boat virtually has three separate fishing areas and fishes three quite comfortably and having the small side console makes it very roomy for a boat of it's size and it has a well designed carefully thought out set up with heaps of modification work done for a song by my good friend Geoff aka Geoff on Fishraider. :thumbup: thank you Geoff your advise and involvement in the work makes this boat a fabulous boat :thumbup: , a boat that nobody would ever want to part with.

24 volt - 82lb thrust Motorguide Electric Motor (electric motor, twin deep cycle batteries and charger installed by Geoff - Brackets to support the electric motor were designed and made by Gary Brickman of Seriously Stainless to save cutting the bow rail :-

As many of you may know Geoff and I are senior members of Fishraider and we could do with an offsider or two to help us with launch and retrieve and hopefully add to the jewfish catch either in Botany Bay, the Georges or in the Hawkesbury. In my case I am awaiting hip replacement surgery so I will need as much help that I can get to get my boat out on the water as often as I would like to.

I live in the Cambelltown area and Geoff lives in the Auburn area. I am going to put up post sometime in the near future so that I can make up a list of members with good boating experience who would like to try and get onto a jewfish or two. The ideal situation would be to start off from Campbelltown and launch at Brooklyn until I have my hip joint replacement surgery. Any member, who would like to make up the third man and in some instances the fourth man in my boat, please contact me by pm or call me on my mobile on 0413210048. My best friend George aka Cungeee George on Fishraider will be fishing with us on some sessions particularly when overnighters are necessary.

The photo below is a random photo and shows that jewfish do exist if you put the time in.

Hi all,

I am new to the forum and getting back into fishing. I guess you could say I am new to boating and fishing.

Here's a pic of my first boat I bought a couple of months ago.

I will be trolling this forum to see whereabouts I should be fishing in my boat and what bait and rigs I should be using.

Since buying the boat I have added LED lighting and 2 extra seats in the back.

This is my pride and joy. 1994 Haines Signature 600BR, 175hp Mariner Magnum V6 2.5L EFI 2-stroke.

Comfortably fits 7-8 adults and does well fishing outside considering it has a flat bottom hull. Top speed at the moment is 53mph.
