    Fishing boat

    I'm looking at possibly buying a small boat for fishing. Mostly sea fishing (not too far out from the shore though), and occasionally having a hoon in a lake.

    Budget is probably around the 8k mark max, and will be getting it on finance because I'm a povo. Am I going to get anything remotely decent/suitable second hand for that price?

    You will begin to touch on the remotely decent vessels at that.. Try and find one with more of a displacement type chine (deeper hull) if you not into water ski as they are much more comfortable than planing hulls which draw very littke water hence rock round alot more..

    Speed, I don't care so much about.

    Anything wrong with something like this?

    I've heard that it's better to get an older hull, and newer motor, but that one has been reconditioned, and new motors seem to be well out of my budget. I'm guessing an old engine like that could be fussy about the fuel that it takes?

    I'm completely new to boating, so judge away

    Or something like this perhaps? - Malborough Dart 13'6". Mint Starter Boat | Trade Me

    The engine is ancient still :/

    Im more of a big boat man... But that first one looks like a great buy.. Its has low deadrise so will plane well.. Looks in great knick.... The marlborogh would maybe be the better seaboat.... I have absolutely no experience with outboards but put it this way... A 2x reconed marine deisel with 50000hrs on the clock is considerably more desirable than the same aged engine with 5000hrs thats been sitting round...

    When looking pay good attention to the fibreglass hull.. Fresh paint means look more closely... Delaminating fibreglass is horrible stuff..

    The first one 1975 and 20hrs? I dont think so. Wouldnt touch that one. most likly bulshit but if true its even worse.
    As bob said newer with more hours is better than old with less (corrosion)
    The dart are good little boat that ride nicely(for there length) and are legendary for a wet ride. Ie any weather and all the spray comes straight at you.
    Alternatively since you are ticking it up anyway you could look at something around 60-70m 3000 tonne 5000 horse power get some crew and quota and look forward to 1- 5 mill every 7 weeks minus 25-30k a day running costs.
    New would only set you back around around 35mil, a doer uper maybe 3-5mill

    Sounds like a bulletproof plan. What could possibly go wrong

    Re. the 20 hours - "
    We bought the boat with the engine having had a full recondition (paperwork to show work done at cost of $3000). Only had no more than 20 hours done on the engine since then."

    20 since the recondition. I know nothing about reconditioning though, so have no idea whether that makes your opinion of it any better

    Oh ok didn't read that bit? so it should be mechanically sound,and if well looked after Ie flushed properly every outing and used regularly corrosion shouldn't be a problem but its a risk you take with a motor that old.

    I put one of those hydrofoil thingys on the motor which lifts the boat out of the water when planing for greater speed and smoothness.

    What are these Hydrofoils like? Are they a gimmick? Im half shares with the old man in a Plylite Fisherman (lamb shit orange) and its got a 90horse Evinrude on it. Was wondering about putting one on it.
    Also its got a damaged skeg? (is that the right name), so it turns wonderfully one way. Would something like this be anygood?
    Damaged Skeg ? SKEG GUARD is the answer | Trade Me

    If you guys that are onto it with boats can help please.


    Josh sorry to hijack your thread

    If its been ground off on the road it could be the answer. I have welded on alloy plate and reshaped them before when completely ground off but at that price Id give it a try.
    Check the little rotatable trim plate mark its position and have a play re the turning

    new to boating go do the day skipper coarse it will be money well spent, as for boats fi glass warrior good dry stable and lite sea boat. i wouldnt look at any boat with an outboard older then late 90,s, inboards are best as long as they are freash water cooled via heat exchanger
