1st dhu in new boat

 It wasn't big but 63cm is a keeper.

the fishing almanac was pretty much spot on it was going to be a poor day, had to work hard in the end but got one in the esky for tea.  Boat went really well for its first serious fish in it since I purchased it.  Loved the new tinted windows and new canopy did not get wet at all.  It was a flat day anyway so going 40kph at just over 4000rpm 20 kms out for a fish was a first for me, as I have only been out to the five before in my old tinnie used about 40lts of fuel on the ole 90hp evinrude 2 banger so pretty happy with that. Hopefully many more to come now.

 Congrats on "blooding" the new boat, dakka!  You're doing better than me!  I've never caught a legal sized Dhuie.. so have never known what they taste like! 

 

Those old 90deg OMCs are very reliable. My boat has a similiar motor (120hp johnson) and its a workhorse.  Fires up every time at the turn of the key.  I have the full service manual for those motors if you ever need some reference.

 Spewing I couldn't get out there today as it looked absolutely superb.

Glad the new boat treated you well and returning home with a good feed is a plus....well done
