    Re: Help with a tinnie

    Hi rapidred.

    As Dan5 suggests above the quinnie explorer 385 is a great little boat.
    My old man just bought a new one with a 15 yammy on the back for $6 grand and also bought a sheet of ply and a couple of metres of marine carpet for the floor.
    He is about your age and is just making a return to fishing after about 20 years having not fished.So he looked around for a boat with a similar criteria as you have stated and the explorer fitted the bill.They are also a very stable boat for their size.
    Best thing he ever did was to buy this boat.It seems to have given him a new lease of life and he doesnt even care if he catchs fish or not.He just loves being out in his new pride and joy.

    Happy boating and fishing

    Re: Help with a tinnie

    Hi rapidred,

    I can't help you with a boat, however, as It was suggested in an earlier post the benefit of electric start and power tilt would definately be an asset to you.

    I suffer from cerebral palsy and recently sold my 3.7m with a 15Hp which had electric start and power tilt fitted especially for me by a outboard mechanic friend of mine.

    I have now upgraded to a New 4.1m tinny and 25HP 4 stroke with E/S and PTT.

    Back to your original Question, if you were to get a licence, would be able to look at a few around this size with these features, for close to your $6000 mark.

    Hope this helps.

    The whole unit is ready for use, Both trailer and boat are registered and in excellent condition. I have used it only once medical reason for selling, owes me $3400 reasonable offer above $2600 acceptable.
    Kind regards,
    This is a delayed response and thanks with apologies. Life tossed me one of those little curlers and fishing became less of a priority, at the time. Do you still have that boat as I could get interested it it.
    cheers and best wishes
