Thread: Old used Haines Hunter 17 down the coast

    Re: Old used Haines Hunter 17 down the coast

    I donít get it. You want a second boat to fish in the river. But you keep looking at old glass that need months to rebuild and the input of more and more money. What not just buy something like this then go fishing straight away. No more to spend.

    If one comes up i might snap it up v146/v16 its not like they are listed weekly they arr actually hard to find

    Just because im looking at a second boat does not mean it will get in the way of the big boat build

    No work will be done on a second boat untill the big one is finished but buying at the right time for the right price in the right location.. requires all the starsto align

    why would you want a 15 and a 19 foot boat ? if a 15 foot boat can get in there so can a 19 foot boat.
    a 12 foot tinny and a big boat maybe might be useful

    445 146r are out there every day of the week v16 are a different lot older hull

    many hardworking blokes cant afford running costs rego insurance upkeep on one boat let alone two.

    The only maitenence isa engine oil, filters, gear oil and spark plugs..
    Insurance is cheap so where does it become expensive if u do your own work?
    I personally dont psy a dealer to walk around sipping on a cuppa taking a phone call or talking to other mechanics while he finds the 10mil socket, yes i have seen how professionals work while your paying $120 an hour.. i refuse that kind of shitty service

    got nothing to say in reply to this ?

    on a modern engine itís more then that and if you think so then Iíd never let you touch my engine
    also any decent dealership does not work the way you imply

    any service ive had done has been a fixed quote so if they were unprofessional and lazy i dont care how long it takes as its fixed rate

    Your fishing Steve.. b7t i'll take the bait as u seem uneducated IN my cercemstances which u yhink you know it all

    15ft boat would push up my 13 degree incline driveway quiet easily, the 18 foot boat is going to weigh close to 2000kgs im going to need to get a 4000kg trailer tug just to park the big girl in the yard

    You must notgo to many mechanics to not see one doing such as i mentioned or yourjust being ignorant towards what i said because i have seen it at alot of shopsand ran from factories
