My custom made 4.5m Brooker is 20 years old without a crack or leak.Ican see therefore how repeat business has been poor.A very well made open tinny with a thicker hull and higher transom,using a small size outboard .Thanks Brooker.

It's a shame but I feel like the boating industry really need to get younger people on board, especially people who werent around boats in their youth. Finding info on buying a first boat or how to get into it isn't exactly easy. Same could be said for fishing. I learnt it from my dad but my friends who didnt have that influence struggle to learn much fishing info. So much jargon and conflicting advice makes it hard for newbies...

Chokpa,I think the best learning curve is finding a club that suits and helps the newbie.Nothing for it but trial & error really.E T started with an old clunker boat.Cheers and tight lines.
