    Boat - Hydro Marine 3.6 with Rotax 947 - Reliable & Fun $10,500 Offers

    I've got this listed on TM - not the prettiest little thing but as noted Reliable and Fun - there is a highschool girlfriend analogy in there somewhere.

    Admittedly, a bit of a screamer being two cyclinder / two stroke but it gets up and goes.

    Located in Invercargill - headed out tonight to Spot X in search of more big brown trout so I'll be off the grid until Sunday.

    Details:

    Hydro Marine 3.6m with Rotax 947 (951cc) 2-stroke engine and 155mm jet unit from a Seadoo jet ski - approx 1998.

    Unkown hours but starts easily and gets on the plane quickly.

    Purchased 18 months ago as a starter boat and has proved reliable and fun.

    Selling because I have a new boat on order.

    Small but comfortable for two 80kg persons and with hunting and fishing gear for overnight trips.

    Small rear seat will take 3rd adult for day trips with fishing gear - used on local rivers and lakes - Oreti, Aparima, Waiau, Hollyford, Manapouri, Monowai, Te Anau etc.

    Engine is a Rotax 947 2-stroke
    - 951cc two cyclinder
    - Uses 91 petrol with 50:1 pre-mix
    - 50L tank
    - Finger throttle
    - Manual choke
    - Trim and Reverse from jet ski unit
    - Very efficent bilge pump
    - New battery - 3 months

    Trailer has current WOF and Rego with spare wheel

    I like your seats, where'd they come from?
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    The seats came with the boat - I think it was originally built by Che Watt at Hydro Marine in Alexandra.

    They are not designed for wide people but probably geared towards safety at speed so you don't get thrown around.

    The seat and back pads are removable from the moulded fiberglass frame - easy to dry if they get wet.

    This boat is still for sale - just back from a few days around Mavora Lakes and Lake Manapouri.

    The big fish (5-8lb browns) are still taking the mouse at midnight !

    Photo from the Waiau River mouth at Shallow Bay last Thursday - there is a nice gravel bar to park the boat on.

    i like the look of the new boat .how well does the electric outboard push the old boat and what sort of set up do you use to power it or do you use the battery that starts the main engine and what sort of time does it last before needing charged . dont think i can squeeze into those bucket seats on the old boat . it looks a good buy for a starter boat.

    The electric outboard is ok for maneuvering around silently in the dark when "mouse fishing" but is somewhat limited in any breeze or current. I just use a marine grade 12v battery that tucks nicely in the back corner. Have not really tested to see what the battery run time is but there is a function on the electric motor that supposedly optimises run time.

    are the seat bases easily removed to fit wider seats for not so skinny persons . what sort of distance are you getting on a full tank . hopefully will have sold the hacienda in the next 5 weeks and will have some spare cash .

    The Hydro 3.6 has been sold.

    I had a run in the new Peak Marine built Wattscraft 3.8 a few days ago and picked up some more big trout on Lake Manapouri- 7, 8, 9.5, 11.5lbs - they are still keen on the mouse lure after dark.

    And, Yes, the new boat goes well . . . as expected.
