    trim tabs

    I have owned 4 boats and my most recent 6.5 meter half cab has them fitted. Personally I find them an excellent feature. It seems if you have a high profile boat with cabin that can get pushed in a wind or in certain sea conditions the ability to be able to level the boat is fantastic. I was given some instruction on how to use them when I brought the boat and had the first ride. I would get them again on a similar size or larger boat in the future. I also spoke to a person from Barcrusher at the boat show. He very knowledgeable and helpful. His advice was for trim tabs over 6m. Cheers

    Venturing off shore

    Hi raiders I would like to target some game and sports fish off shore from Sydney(port hacking) I have a 6-7m glass half cab with 200 hp 250 litres all 2yrs old and serviced each winter with all the required safety gear including EPIRB. My thoughts were given I am new to off shore in Sydney was to start at some FADS off Port Hacking and venture to The Peak and 12 Mile in the coming weeks. I have been doing a lot of reading in the forum and eventually I would like to go to Browns Mountain. I would be grateful to the experienced raiders to comment on my plan especially with regard to suitability of the boat and the weather conditions considered possible. I would also appreciate to know regulars who would be willing for me to follow side by side to gain some experience and confidence. Just to keep in touch on the VHF would be good peace of mind. Feel free to give some help on the fishing techniques. Thanks Bucaneer
  12. Hi fellow fishos I have been traveling with work for the past 10 years. I have lived in most states in oz fished lots of the rivers and east coast. Really just a novice but I love fishing and a great day out on any water. I recently came back from 3 years in NZ and brought my boat back with me to oz. The fishing in NZ is really easy love those snapper and getting a feed each trip is no problem. Now back in Sydney and fish from Port Hacking and Botany bay I find it much more difficult. I have a great new glass NZ made boat Bucaneer excess 7m with 200hp Yammy very comfy with all the gear. Now I am back I have found the fish very illusive. I will be looking for some help to find the fish and gets some tips and tricks for the local area. This seems to be a great site to hook up with some fishing buddies so I will be sure to seek some guidance and extend invites to those keen to share knowledge and a great day out.
