    outboard motor that hasn't been run for years?

    The standard is carbs, sparks clogging with gunk . Seals, lines and impellers giving up and perished... that sort of stuff. However if the dealer serviced it surley they would take some ownership prior to throwing her on the showroom floor. Are you able to water test or atlease give it a flush. Maybe compression test it. I agree with your thinking. Outboards are a " use it or lose it " i think anyway.

    Gymea Bay Baths for Landbased

    Ill go down there often with squid jigs and flick around for some fresh bait for the weekend ahead. Can always pull out a few and throw back what i dont need. I dont know how this fresh water pushing up the system from all the rain will effect the fishing though.

    New boat - Fishing Buddy - East Coast

    mate, that's an awesome upgrade. they always catch my eye and love the look of the Formosa cabins and the centres ! that rig will be perfect for punching out the FADS when they are deployed. I cant really help out with the regular boat buddy but I am often heading out of the hacking and swallow rock ramp. if you see a purple seafarer v-sea .. that's me! come say G'day.

    Port hacking artificial reefs

    I sounded over them a few weekends ago.. not a lot of marks about. I asked the question during the weeks before I went out and people said the same thing. I had better luck just off jibbon for rats.

    Is this a good first boat?

    mate they handle so well! The boat itself would be fine offshore! I would be more than happy to run offshore in that hull however I have always had boats. A lot of the time it’s the ability of the driver that is the biggest issue. But you’ll work up to venturing outside eventually. Im looking at a v16r and the bigger brother v17r. If you don’t snap it up I will! Haha

    South Sydney artificial reef

    Will do smasher. I’m in a 4.7 yellow runabout. Reel nauti on the side. These should do so well. I watched a video today and it said they plan on doing atleast 5 more up and down the nsw coast line.

    South Sydney artificial reef

    Hey all! has anyone done any exploring around the newish artificial reef south of jibbon bommie , port hacking? Much on offer yet or still too early? Ill probably throw some hard bodies out and troll down south along the cliffs and check it out in my travels. Cheers!

    Bate bay

    Bate bay is straight out from port hacking Cronulla. It’s a good spot, always plenty of boats out.

    Bate bay

    What a morning to be on the water. Took the tub out for the first proper fish since purchase and major service. She’s running like a dream and handles well. I headed straight into the bate bay to see if I can find the flatties, took a few drifts but Found them out deeper then what I usually do however I Boated 6 fish and they tasted a treat for a late arvo lunch. Headed to jibbon for an hour or so and threw a yakka filler over and hooked up almost straight away. LITTLE !!! rat king came up and two more followed after that around the same size. I then Trolled nearish to the Bommie for two laps and got two fish as a reward. If you guys see me on the water say gday. Usually float around the hacking and harbour.
