Well I don't have anything to fancy, sold my 21 ft whittley over twelve months ago, and brought a stejcraft 5.5 cuddy cabin in march 2011 for the purpose of something I can handle on my own. We took it on a couple of tuna runs out of st helens late march and it went well. been doing work on the boat to suit my needs,boat nearly finished only need some work on the tralier which I do over the coming winter. I've also have a clark runabout which I use for setting my pots and fly fishing out of up the lakes.
Cheers Craig

Nice having something you can handle on your own Craig...means you'll get to use it more cool1

Nothing wrong with a 2 stroke. Use a bit more juice and a bit noisier but that's definitely worth the difference in price to a similar sized 4 stroke thumbsup1

What has 4,882km's of coastline? think1
