OK folks,
Here's your chance to post up a pic of your boat for all the world to see. Doesn't matter if its a cruiser or a canoe, we'd love to see it.
Just use the new "attach" feature below the text box to post up your pic.
And don't forget to give us a few details about her either.
Mine is called "Tarcoola" (aboriginal for river bend)
She is a custom built 4.9m Sea Jay Barra Masta (built to survey). Centre console with front & rear casting decks, rod locker, twin live-wells, under floor ice box, CD player, 65 lb Minn Kota bow mount, Zercom sounder, Lorenz GPS & plotter. Currently has a 70 HP 4 stroke Evinrude but will be changing over to an 80 HP 4 stroke Yamaha soon.

Might post up a pic of my other boat now.

Am sure most have already seen her on the site, and most have overtaken her on a weekend. This is our Roberts Longboat, 21ft, 25HP 2 pot Yamaha diesel. Cruises at 6 knots, downhill, with the tide and wind at her back. A very comfortable cruiser with good overnight facilities. A steal @ $27,000.00.

This is when we packed up to leave awoonga at the end of last year. 4.5m alf stessl circa 1990, deep sides, pretty beamy, chuggs along with a 84 mod suzi 40 horsies. Hey, what can I say, we didn't buy it. Was the father in law's mackeral chasing unit. (He's fishing with the man upstairs now!)

06-03-2002, 08:55 AM
Well heres my pride and joy, Quintex hornet trophy 435, with a 40hp 4 stroke Mercury. Top little rig. Mina Kota bow mount coming as soon as the bank account allows it. Top speed of 37knots.

06-03-2002, 01:22 PM
That pic wouldn't have been taken near the Bald Hills ramp would it ??

They're nice bits of gear that's for sure. I'm certainly happy with mine - the 455 Trophy.

18-03-2002, 05:36 PM
Hi Fitzy,
Here's my pride and joy :D, Quintrex Quinnie Classic fitted with Honda 130, Hydrive hydraulic steering, Mackay trailer, Lowrance X75 sounder, Garmin 126 gps, GME stereo system and Navman fuel flow meter.

Some awsome looking rigs there folks. Very impressive. Good too see! Keep the pics coming folks. ;D


22-03-2002, 04:08 PM
Hi Jack,
Actually taken out the front of my house at Golden Beach. Couldn't be happier with the hornet. About to make a rod locker for it so I don't keep droping things on the damn things. Cheaper to make a locker than replace rods.

30-03-2002, 07:59 AM
This is our pride and joy, doesnt look real good at the moment, undergoing a fitout and repair. It has history around the Gladstone area original owner bought it about 25 years ago I believe. Clarke Abalone centre console with 70hp Evinrude. When it is complete will be sporting new console with screen and splash protection (she is very wet in choppy conditions), all fuel tanks under floor, storage compartments along 1/2 the sides, GPS,Fishfinder, new VHF radio, marine music machine and Maroon and Silver paint job (Q'lander Q'lander Q'lander) Son who is co-owner is currently in the UK so look forward to heaps of trips when he returns later this year, maybe bearing gifts to include from USA
