Hey guys!

new boat has finally arrived after a fairly long wait with the usual expected delays! Unfortunately with what's going on at the moment haven't really been able to get her out and blood the deck yet! Went beautifully on the test drive.

ended up with:

merc 200 4stroke with dts

trim tabs

fresh water bladder 

deck wash and fresh water hose

lowrance live HD's 12 3 in 1 and 1kw transducer with chirp.

upgraded the trailer to the heavier option.

porter potty

bunk infills

storm covers

glass bulb fuel filter

extended swim platform starboard as aim to put aux bracket on port.

rocket launcher

air vents in roof


eventually will aim to get anchorcwinch etc but will have to wait for now.

Have had a lot of very good advice from members on this forum which has helped greatly during the selection process, so thanks heaps! 

cant wait to get it out!

lol tempted to call it "lockdown" or "social separation"! J/k.

I bet you are chafing at the bit to get out and blood the deck.

Heres hoping you have many great fishing trips.

that is a beautiful boat sea

that is a beautiful boat sea goat, pls let me know how she runs in the chop, i have a carribean crestcutter it is more so a river boat as its not a deep V i was going to upgrade to a reef runner, alot more suitable for offshore fishing, dont get me wrong my boat is a solid hull and i feel safe in it but if i put her nose down waves crash into the windscreen and if i trim up to much she pounds to hard in to the middle of the boat on choppy days!


enjoy your days on the water when we all get a chance to go fishing again!
