With the old Haines on the market, the new rig has arrived thumbsup1


It's a Whittley SL26 with twin Yamaha 150 four strokes. Should suit us well with a mix of overnight comfort and still plenty of fish-ability which is what we do mostly.



Few pics....















The new name :!:

Hi Chris. Have been out a few times now. Only a feed of Flatties so far, but more will come.

Proka, so far have only put 120L through them in four short trips out and a bit of using the "GO" levers for 125 km, so near enough to 1km/L. The Opti does 1.3km/L, so not that different really considering its a fair bit bigger boat.
