looking at second hand tinnies around 4m for a bit of inshore but mostly estuary. 4-5 years old for my price tag. I was looking at the Edgetrackers but they seem to go the day they hit the trading post. Also Seajays but not a lot in the post either. Can anyone give me the pros and cons on these two or any suggestions on proven models in that era.

Looked at Edgetrakers myself last year and found that some of the earlier model hulls cracked. I have two mates that have had them and the sold them after having them repaired. I ended up going with a Quinnie Hornet

Hey Luke. I have what is called an Edge dingy. That is it has the flat keel / transom and a V at the front like a normal dingy. This works a treat in the bays and close offshore. the Edgetracker is more suited to the estuaries and lakes as they are designed for freshwater, ie:- casting fly's and lures from. The seajay's are supposed to be built a little stronger than most tinnies, therefore are a little dearer and go quicker when listed for sale. try putting wanted add in the Trading Post. Quinnies are a good boat as well. i think you are on the right track with a boat of 5 years of age or less. Tinnies might get a crack in them, but they can be repaired easily. Keep an eye out in the January Issue of Bush "N "Beach for an article about putting a boat together yourself. Don't forget that the most important thing on a boat is the motor, so don't be fooled by a good looking boat with an old motor.
