  1. G'day raiders, I was hoping to get some advice. I'll be buying a small tinny to suit outings for a small family (myself, wifey and our 1 year old bub) but also for my solo fishing trips. I'd be using it to fish and explore the estuaries such as the hawkesbury, middle harbour (from roseville down to the spit), lane cove river and the Georges. So I've been looking at something between the 3.9m to 4.4m range unpainted Vhull BUT what I can't really get my head around is the hull thickness. A lot are 1.6mm sides and base. Some with 1.6mm sides but with 2mm base. Then there are some
  2. Hey guys I'm looking into getting a tinny for fishing and almost everything in this plan seems very possible except for one thing: storage. So, the kind of boat I'm looking into is a very small tinny or even a kitted out rowboat and the plan will be to have the boat moored somewhere and the turn up with an esky, rods and a small clip-on electric motor. The problem is I have got no Idea where to leave it and I don't exactly want to redecorate my backyard with a tinny or shell out heaps of money on some boat storage facility. Is there a free storage place somewhere? Can I just leave it tied up t

    Tinny storage

    Hi everyone I have recently sold my 3.9m tinny and have just ordered a seajay 3.7nomad hs, has anyone had anything to do with the nomad that can give me some feedback on? Anyway i will be using this boat as a cartopper, im looking for ways to store the boat when not in use, i am thinking of a couple of 100kg winch hoists mounted on the roof of the shed and lifting the boat up, so the V of the boat is in the V of the shed roof. Has anyone seen this or have any other ideas on what i could do, i have seen pulley kits for kayaks but nothing for boats The tinny weighs no more than 90
  4. Hi everybody. I've been a long time away from this group since I sold my Polycraft, but I'm back (for better or worse....). I just want to get a small tinny this time as 90% of the time I'm sure it'll be me going out alone maybe the daughter. This one came up for sale at $6k negotiable. Motor is a Seaking, supposed to be a Yammy clone Hull is Sea Craft. Only been out 3 times, comes as shown with fishfinder ($300) and bilge pump. No nav lights, I'd have to do them myself, which is no issue. What do people think, especially the price?? I'm going to grill Ausmarine at t
  5. Hey Raiders!!! Mate and I are planning to hire a tinnie from Como and looking at maybe boating down and around Woronora system and Georges. As I am normally a non-boater angler, I was hoping to reach some more secluded spots or boat-only access areas which hold a good day of fishing. Just wondering if anybody has had any experiences or know of any consistencies in these systems who would be willing to share/point me in the right direction, and any advice on what type of gear/bait I should use. Ill most likely be armed with 2 roads, Raider with 2500 sienna, and Shimano Sahara with a 3000 reel,
  6. Hey everyone, I'm new to the forums, and fishing, only been out for about a year and a half, Used to be land based but I recently aquired a 12ft clark tinny, It has 3 seats which make it really uncomfortable to stand up and move around, so I want to remove the middle seat and put in a flase floor, what kind of price would I be looking at to take it to a shop to have them remove the seat and put in new ribs and add some horizontal beams to support the floor?
  7. Hello raiders, I haven’t done a report in a while so I figured now’s a good a time as any. I'll try to keep the post succinct as possible all the while by trying to bore the readers too much. So made an ad hoc plan a few hours before while he was at work and asked if he was keen for a fish on my boat after his shift at 7am, after a bit of back and forth with him trying to convince me to go rock fishing at botany heads instead and with my decline in that idea (due to a very opposed girlfriend to that idea) we ended up agreeing to do the original plan and take the boat out instead. he arrived
  8. Hello all, as you may or may not know from my most recent post in the fishing report section, i acquired a 12ft tinny and would like to make it my own. As of now i have plans of redoing the wiring on my tinny having purchased a new 6 gang switch panel and am jsut waiting for an electrical junction box to arrive in the mail to start, however i digress. Iam here seeking opinions on what a nice fish finder option would be and how to mount the transducer on the transom once acquired. at the moment the top spot for potential fish finders im looking is the lowrance 4x HDI. are there any others out t
  9. Gday raiders, so I thought I might share my newest adventure.... I was in the market for buying my first boat with very little success, until i get an ebay message saying i had won a boat due to my opening bid on a nice 12ft tinny a week before (thinking surely someone would make a higher bid seeing as the opening bid was my bid...), anyway long story short i happily took receivership of said boat. Synopsis trip 12/6/14 > Food prepared the night before with the gf making sandwiches and prepping snacks and drinks, the boat and fishing gear also prepped the night before for an early start

    Boat upgrade

    Hi raiders, After read many post about how to install false floors in a tinny I finally decided to give it a go! I used 12mm marine ply and 3mm 25mm x 25mm aluminium, a lot of people suggested welding the alum. I'm not the best at welding especially aluminium so I just riveted it. All up it cost about $180 but allows more storage space and a casting deck. Next mod is to carpet the seat add a few chairs from BCF, a bait board, a few rod holders and maybe a coat of paint. If anyone has any tips on painting that would be awesome!

    Tinny advice

    Hi fellow raiders, I'm keen to try Botany Bay in my 12ft 8hp tinny, I was wondering if this would be able to handle the bay and if so were would be a good spot to start. I don't want any secret spots lol just a few tips for a beginner, I'm keen on soft plastics and have a large range which I have used with success in the George's river but lately I've been keen to try somewhere new. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
