    New boat

    3.1 Southern Pacific RIB, with a 2 stroke Yamaha 8hp. Goes well (much better than my fishing). Great portable setup along with the canopy on the ute, no towing admin etc, takes 5 min to put up and strap down. Easier and safer than the old rollup inflatable. Planes with 2 happily but not 3 + gear. Took it for a burn around the Sounds for a couple of days after picking it up and caught 4000 sharks, 5000 spotties, 1 32.5cm blue cod, a handful of kahawai and a big baracouta.

    Those 8hp Yams are indestructible, mine has done hundreds of hours all of them at full throttle.Can sit unused for 6 months and still start first pull.
    Flush it religiously and it will look after you.

    I got the whole setup, lightly used, for $4250. 9 hours on the motor. 2 tote tanks (11 and 24L), outboard trolley,boat cover, beach wheels etc. The hard plastic beach wheels aren't much good, I want to investigate pneumatic wheels. Chucked a couple of railblaza RIBports on yesterday for rod holders. Massive thanks to Wildman for picking it up and bringing it down for me

    When are we going fishing? You missed an opportunity to draw penises on my truck last nite. It was parked outside your place all nite after I had too many single malts across the road

    They look good, and the hole spacing is similar to the existing ones so I might even be able to get away without drilling additional holes in my nice new aluminium transom

    They exporting them all over world now
    Terrific design - my neighbor has them on a RIB same size as yours and its so easy even on our rocky beach.
    I have mine on a 2m inflatabel softbottom keel (oyster hating) inflatabel and my wheels could do with been a tad further apart (wider wheel base) but I am at full transom width allowed
    So with motor on can get the wobles with motor on if pulling to fast and go over a large rock

    Good stuff. A heap of us are heading south for a lake fish tomorrow. I'd say the weather will be spot on.
