Bit the Bullet got this 4 weeks ago, she's been out 8 times twice outside loving every minute of my new lifestyle. 499 Crossfire 75 Yamaha outboard. Lowrance 9" HDS Live sounder. I can say I have no complaints with this boat rides and drives like a dream.

Here's mine. Quintrex Cruiseabout, undoubtedly one of the best models ever made. Out of the Kirrawee factory. Great, solid boat. Currently selling,, but am in two minds.....

Starting to get mine how I like it now. Raised the engine, played with props settled on a 21 pitch 4 blade. Fitted trim tabs, re-wired and fitted basic electronics. Re-fitted the aluminium trailer with a custom skid system to suit the variable dead-rise and widening planing plank. Its now becoming a bit more of a weapon that can ride at a level attitude in less than perfect conditions and so far from the boat I bought.

Looking good.

Quintrex hulls stand the test of time & will pretty much outlast us on this earth.

Im still fishing out of my fathers 1969 Sportsman, just needs a repaint but other than that is still going strong!

Sad day for me last Monday. Stormy ll has gone to live at Moruya with its new owner.  I was looking at a 17ft Viking but the boss said, "don't you dare".

Im sure its brought you many years of joy & now moving on to give others joy.

Its one of those facts of life that when we move on or forward we must leave something behind.

 

Just think what the new boat will bring.............................when your allowed to get it :whistling:
