Im Back ( Brad's Boat )
« on: October 09, 2014, 05:59:08 pm »
Hi Guys

Well after nearly three years of using my good looks and gurnard catching capabilities hitching rides with my boatie friends im back in the game!



I wasnt really in a position to lash out and get another boat... But the right boat, at the right price, came up at the right time!  It also helps that I went halves in it with my best mate.

So without further ado..

Our MantaCraft 4.6M powered by a 60 ponie Yamaha  (watch this space)








We have already whacked in some new bungs and we are putting in a new floor this weekend.

Its safe to say im looking forward to summer and nailing a few salmon/flatty/calamari/gummy/kingfish/snapper and what ever else comes aboard fish1 fish1
Whens the next adventure?

It will be interesting to see if you keep the gurnard mojo or if it came as part and parcel of your previous rides.
Good to see you back on the water.

Thanks guys
The yammi preformed faultlessly and nudged us along at 51kph

The 12mm marine ply and carpet adds abit of weight down low so should be a good flatty/salmon machine.

Definitely no gurnards allowed laugh1 laugh1
