View Full Version : Tinny Fitout!

18-02-2002, 01:40 PM
I am looking at fitting out my tinny.
It is a 10ft deep hull and is powered by a 6hp motor.
I normally fish in Middle harbour and sometimes go out into main harbour [sydney] weather permitting to the Sow and pigs reef and wedding cakes markers.

I was jsut wondering if any one had any tips for fitting out the tinny to make it a bit comfier.
I have been considering chairs, matting for the floor possibly a slightly raised wooden flooring with carpeted, livebait tank etc.
I have jsut installed rod holders for trolling and looking for some other ideas that border on the cheap side yet efective
Any ideas on how to do this and materials i wil ned would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx in advance\
