New Extra Long Ramp at Shoal Bay???

Recommended Posts

This appeared in my Facebook feed this afternoon. That’s Shoal Bay Country Club in the background. It happened this afternoon. Do you think he mistimed the surge? 😂

Climate change, big tide. ?

Would have been worse with a glass boat.

Ouch will be a absolute pain to get back on to the trailer.

I worry when I drag my boat up that hill, sometimes I even go round to Gov rd to avoid it.

Yup ... would really be a crap end to the day ... so shiny too 😪

You guys are always advocating how much torque the eTecs push out ... guess he over-revved her coming up to the trailer .... darn that eTec !

I didnt notice the Etec on the back 😱😱 even more heartbreaking!!!

Last weekend I did circa 10 hrs trolling and only burnt 55 Litres. Not bad for a 150HP motor.

Yes yes nice consumption figure.... not sure why they are Etecs (seems you guys should call them oooh-ahhh-Tecs) .... would you have any idea of how many kms you covered?  

For comparison my 200HP EFI Merc, last Sunday Parsley Bay-50-60m flathead grounds-FAD-trolling-Parsley Bay  ... over 100km covered, used around 100L according to gauge. We trolled at 1700rpm (12km/h), and punched back from offshore at up to 50km/h (4400-4800rpm), in the river 60+km/h(5100rpm).

So I'm still pretty happy with the black growl...but it doesn't have the torque to park the boat half way up the road !

Haha, I got sent that yesterday whilst I was out fishing! Needless to say, we were extra careful loading the boat! 😝

Sorry Zoran I seem to have forgotten to reply to this. That's pretty good fuel consumption for a 200HP ! 

I dont have an exact measurement but that day we did botany to browns and then south east browns and then the peak. So I'd say circa 100km.
