    Show us ya boat porn

    Right, so we have threads for rifles, transport oops, etc.... but none for boats.

    So show us your boats and point out any good/bad points for the collective learning.

    Have 2 Buccaneers, 540 Sport and a 440 Sport. Love the split screen for accessing the anchor and for getting off over the bow. Also have a 12ft tinny with a 8hp for what ever.Name:  tawaki.jpg

Size:  309.4 KB. With 540 (red) we can put 2 tanks under the floor, the rest of the gear goes under the transom seats. All fishing fear is stowed away in the side compartments and the rods go into the rocket launcher. This way the boat has heaps of room for 2 divers and 4 fisherman. The 440 sport is smaller and is really only ideal for 2-3 fishers and 2 divers but not at the same time. It's purpose is to just give me a boat up at the beach so I don't always have to tow up the larger boat from the Lake all the time.

    Here's mine, I use her every week to clean the foot valve for the pump.
    Her good points are limited
    Her bad points are she leaks badly, the bilge pump can sometimes be a bit slow and a month or so back I broke the paddle so we go in circles everywhere.
    Probably not much use for fishing or diving from and is a bit of a hazard after a few beers.

    Hope you wear a life jacket. It was from an identical kayak (colour even)and another similar, that I had to recover 2 bodies from a couple of years ago. Amazingly something as innocent as that, ended up to such a tragic result.

    I used to have a similar kayak to that when I was at intermediate. Every Sunday afternoon was paddle day. Just used Google earth and worked out it was only about 40km.

    Are those photos the same boat?
    The buccaneer boats like good. How do they ride?

    Grey one on trailer has a 70hp Johnson, Red one has a 115hp Yamaha. The ride is reasonable, but not flash in a big sea like the Haines Hunter. But then on the anchor and moving around it's a lot more stable. I don't go out (unless I have to) in rough conditions. if I have to then I ballast and trim accordingly. I prefer the Buccaneer as I find stability at rest is more important for me and my crew than when underway and making way. Hence I own 2 Buccaneers.

    10 foot parkercraft, My grandad bought it new many many years ago, the bum is very thin from being dragged up beaches.
    It has the notority of having nearly drowned many of my extended family.
    Running a 8hp Yam which is an awesome motor,always starts easy. plenty fast one up ok with two light adults.
    Used for everything when I first got it but retired to the estuary only now.

    Fryan 450 venturer.

    The venturer has a 4mm plate hull verses the more common 450 Freedom with a 3mm pressed hull.
    Imppressive ride and stability for a small tinny,can be slightly wet ride at times.

    40 johnson, does the job but I am no fan of white motors and it could really do with 50-60hp.

    I have an old figlass Fisherman, "Two Bunnies" was handed down to me from dad, she's old but really tidy, she has a bit of history in the family, learnt to ski behind her when I was a wee fella. The old Chrysler 85 still pushes her along pretty good all though I have a more modern Yamaha 60 to go on her when I get her back from down south, away getting a hold repaired after we got a bit caught up on that stupid rock that's just under the surface on the way out from the ramp at Southbay in Kaikoura. She's a planning hull so bounces a bit in a decent chop but we take her exploring around the Abel Tasman every summer and she has always got us home safe.

    Hardly boat porn but mines a Old Fi Glass Warrior . Havnt had it a year yet , but clocked up over 50 hrs so far . Pros : cost under 15 k , fairly soft riding , handles bigger seas well enough , comfortable for fishing 3 -4 people , heavy with low profile so wind doesn't seem to bother it too much .
    Cons: fairly heavy , fibre glass gel coat is easy to scratch and chip , can't launch off shallow beach
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    19ft Coastcraft Cat, running twin mariner 60s, awesome for big seas, virtually unsinkable and with the big windscreen you hardly ever get wet.

    It's very different to most kiwi boats with its wet deck design.

    A built to order spearfishing boat. No rod holders, no creature comforts at all.
    It's a surprisingly dry riding boat, but when it chops up with a wind from the side it doesn't matter, as we are in wetsuits anyway.
