    Towing the boat to Cairns is no big deal if you are set up for the tow. Lived there most of my life and if you want to go out to the reef forget the charter boats. Towed 19 ft boats to the cape with no problems. Can give you some marks if you want for the Cairns area. Have boat will travel is the approach to take and don't understand what the issue is. Yep you may get there and the conditions may not be perfect but that's life.

    Yep, agree the actual tow is not earth stopping, IF you were towing for a couple of weeks fishing holiday, but (in my opinion) this is different because he wants to tow the boat to possibly use on the way to the cape, so time spent towing, using and storing comes out of the original planned trip, if you get what I mean.

    Re: Thoughts on towing a Cruisecraft to Cairns from Brisbane

    I towed my 625 Cruisey to Dingo Beach at Xmas as we were up north for 3 weeks. Boat 2.7T towed very nicely and ranged between 18.9 to 23.9L/100km for the total trip. Unfortunately our boys developed chicken pox on day 2 when the weather was variable to 10 leading up to xmas day, then it was 25-50kn for the next 7 days. Even in the 25kn we were able to skirt the islands for a feed of trout, fingermark and crays. I did a trip up the Gregory chasing barra...err jacks for a day. I thought I had a big boat until the B.I.L's mate turned up in a 760 Haines.

    The tow isnít a big deal. 625 cruisecraft isnít an enormous boat,

    But from my experience Iíd not try and do two types of trips in one. Takes away from the fun.do cape trip on its own or a fishing trip on it own and enjoy them separately.

    If your after pure fishing, tow your cruisecraft to Cooktown and fish out of there for 3 weeks. Youíll catch more fish than you ever have.
