    Re: How far out would you go in a 5m Tinnie

    You have got to love the look on peoples faces when they go past in their $100K "offshore boats" when your out there in a $12K Tinny setup ......... Mine won't sink, has a reliable motor, i can paddle it if I have to, have all the safety gear,... nothing wong with that, no less safe than a 6m boat! May need to go to the Chiropractor when I get back in though!!
    That said I wish I had a $100K offshore boat

    Re: How far out would you go in a 5m Tinnie

    He He He, I know what your talking about Richo, I wish I kept my CC. Not all bad though, the missus is already talking a bigger boat, but the one she's talking about will need a mooring instead of a trailer, we'll see how it goes. I sold the CC cause the weather was always shite and I could never get out as much as I wanted. It's still only on the odd occasion that I look at the ocean and think that I could've gone out wide today, and those days that I do, I could take the tinny out, so would we really need a bigger boat for that? Mind you, we got alot more time on our hands now, so it's not like we gotta wait for days off. We got a mate with a 3400 Kevlacat for the bigger trips, and there's always charters if desired. I think I'm happy with the tinny's for now, just gotta pick the day right.

    Cheers

    He He He, I wish, promised I wasn't going to get another bigger boat, the last one spent too much time sitting waiting for the weather or the opportunity to go out. Guess life is a little different now, we have more time to go fishing, but I'll give a a while before I go looking for a bigger boat. Wanna go touring and fishing up through the gulf and NT in the near future so most focus will be on setting stuff up for this.

    7.5 metres? That's the biggest Aluminium Bath-Tub anyone could imagine?
