  1. Thanks for the info Jeff.. they are definitely on my Radar now. I need to take one for a test drive, and a side console too for that matter.
  2. So you're up at Port Stephens at the moment Jeff? Yeah when I looked at pictures of the stacer easy rider along side a Quintrex Renegade or even a Stacer outlaw the hull looks the same so I guess it's sort of the same boat except it has no glovebox and dash for the passenger and it has a casting deck, where the other has all of the comforts and some escape from the elements when needed. Does the Stacer easy rider have a underfloor kill tank Jeff? I know all of the Quinnies Freedom Sports I have looked at online and questioned didn't have a kill tank or built in live tank.
  3. Cheers for the reply Jeff. How long have you had her mate? By the sounds of it you either didn't but it solely for fishing or you don't get out much... Do you have the Bimini on it? I saw one at the boat ramp the other day and was amazed at how much room there actually was in the Stacer easy rider... Fair bit behind the driver's seat in cockpit which really surprised me. They look perfect to cover family and fishing but I'm a bit concerned how I'd go taking it offshore on occasions
  4. I just had a look at a formosa side console boat. No comparison on build quality really. But more pricey and looks heavy though I'm not it would be.
  5. Has anyone got a bowrider boat they use for fishing? With the front seating arrangement, I've seen a few pics where they have taken the cushions out and put in an infill to make a casting deck. some seem quite roomy in the back too. My only concern is can you somehow mount an electric motor though
  6. You looking for one too Mii11x?
  7. Thanks for the reply mate. Yep still looking and researching. What make and size outboard you get with her widd? How is she at rest also that is the only bad thing I heard about the anglapro boats from a guy at work Thanks Geoff
  8. Thanks Antony. That's a nice rig! So much fishing space
  9. Hi Issue, thanks for the reply mate. I cannot look at the boat on my phone for some reason, I'm away with the family on a holiday but will hopefully be able to look at it when I get back home on the computer. Is the electrolysis being caused by something wrong in the boat build? A bloke from work said he believes the Savage Scorpion with its build would be less susceptible to electrolysis because of the way it is built. He did mention something on the way it was rolled and welded or something can't remember exactly what it was now but he thought the Savage would be less chance.
  10. Thanks for that. Are thier hulls any good? I couldn't even find bay hull info from Savage on any Google searches.
  11. Thanks for that. I cannot find anything on the Savage Scorpion Hull, are they anything like the Revolution or Blade Hull seeing they come out of the same place?
  12. Thanks heaps for the info new signing.
  13. Thanks for the reply Davidson. You sound like you know what you're talking about mate. Any knowledge on the Savage Scorpion at all? They look a nice rig from what I can see and a bit cheaper than the Stacers and the Quinnies, I think I read somewhere that either the hull or their trailers were built by telwater also. I'm starting to wonder us I do cough up the extra money now for a bust over 4.8 in length after I went and sat in a 4.6 Renegade seems more than enough room in an open boat like that in a side console.
  14. Cheers for the reply Joe. Nice rig mate, can you please give me a ballpark figure on a rig like that? How does it sit at rest, spoke to a guy at work who has been on his mates and he wasn't real impressed by the stability of the Anglapro but he didn't say what model he Wason either. Also do they do a model with the offshore washwell ? I saw a Savage 455 Scorpion yesterday at the boat ramp and it also was a real nice looking rig... Anyone had a ride in one? Would be interested to hear how they ride etc.
  15. I also read somewhere that Quintrex are shipping the hulls in from China and building the rest around it here. Why would you pay extra for a Quintrex when the build is probably no better than any of its competitors..? Are there any known boat builders out there that sell their boats with fully welded hulls?
