Hi there folks,

i am not Rex Hunt, I am only saying folks as I am new & want to say good day. Some interesting posts definitely. I am moving to Sydney soon near Waverley & would launch my boat from Botany ramp I believe. 

Ok the boat is only 5 mars but I fish 10 to 15 nautical miles offshore in it on a good day I.e. in Queensland. If you want to check it out let me know. I am still a couple of months away.

i basically baught the Hull only & got all the work done on it. Now it is a centre console with a 60hp yammy & goes like a rocket on a glassy day I.e. cause I love offshore. Can anyone tell me a bit about fishing in Sydney as I have never ever fished there.
