  1. Putting price down $6250.00
  2. Hey everyone, Im putting up for sale my viper 4.2 meter tinny to have the money in my bank for a small fibreglass boat. This is a pressed plate tinny with 2mm sides and 3mm bottom with a electric motor bracket. It is powered buy a 30hp mercury electric start with electric tilt and trim on a seperate unit called a cmc. Boat, trailer and motor all 2007. Has grey scale lorance fish finder, gme marine radio, navigation lights and bilge. Im un sure of the hours of the motor, i was very biased towards yamaha before i bought it but this mercury has been awsome it has never let me down once, the only thing i have to do to it was get the starter changed this was done about a month ago buy coorparoo marine, always serviced even when i havent been using it all services have been done buy coorparoo, i also got them to change my wheel bearings, trailer lights and plug for the car. Im not going to say this this is the best offshore boat because its not however i feel if you re power, maybe add a hydrofoil or permatrim and distribute the weight it would be a good boat for this i have been offshore from the goldcoast a few times in the right weather and it has done fine with plenty of power with two dudes fishing gear etc, but it is an awsome boat for the bay and rivers i have regualry fished the bay and the broadwater in this. I had plans of re powering but im going to try and sell it when the right boat comes up next. I had many a firsts in this boat from catching my first coral trout, seeing crocodiles in the proserpine river, exploring hook and whitsunday islands, catching reefies off st bees and keswick in mackay, exploring islands off seaforth, dugongs in hervey bay catching my first mackerel and tuna in the bay and catching my first jack down the goldy. The work i have had done to it is i got Galilee marine welding to weld in a false floor up the front to store my esky, i built the under floor storage box and built my seat bracket and my friend whos an electrician him and i put in the radio. The boat does have a dent in the port side but this has not caused any structural damage. Boat and trailer in good condition and motor in very good condition, oh and the battery is new about 3 months old, i have not used it since its last service. Please holla at , if your interested an im more than keen in taking you out to see if you like it. Price is $6500 ono, i have already had a few offers and dude was supposed to come round but never rocked up
  3. nope none at all, just wanted to check it out and fish around islands
  4. we will be going in a mates 4.2 tinnie with a 40hp 4 stroke or mine of the same size with a 30hp
  5. Hey everyone, I am keen on checking out pumpkin island and doing a bit of fishing in the esturarys around yepoon. Myself and another friend are keen to check it out in about 6 -7 weeks. I was wondering if this time of year would be ok to get out to the islands? i remember when i lived in mackay a few years ago and this time was still quite windy for some reason, also would this weather be ok for fishing around the islands then? and would have the flood debris be gone buy then? Thanks heaps
  6. Thanks ellicat I'll let her chill until the mechanic
  7. My theory is the mechanic I used hasn't put maybe the a washer or seal back on or the seal has broken. I am not going to undo the gear box screw I'll just take it back when I get home, first time it has happened to me, surely someone has had this happen or knows if it's a game over or a simple fix?seems to me more like a not so simple thing if water is in the oil
  8. Hey everyone, currently up at Noosa with the million other people with boats. Was just about to hook the boat on when I noticed a small thick oil puddle directly under the skeg of the motor.it looks as if it has come out of the two little holes and maybe out of the oil point where you put the gear box oil .The puddle is very thick but small but also looks like it has small water bubbles in it. Have used the boat maybe three times since getting it serviced late august. I do need to flush it out now though from lastnight . Any input greatly appreciated !!
  9. thanks for the replys everyone. Prop isnt damaged really just the usual small chips etc. rooster tail is mainly off the back. im not sure if that affects it all just kind of annoying. boat is a 4.2 meter viking. they dont get made anymore
  10. Thanks for the reply everyone. that is one of the issues actually, the cmc unit is mounted so the motor sits about 150mm-200mm above the original motor mount, so the motor is sitting quite higher than normal. another thing about it is im getting a large rooster tail type spray when underway. not to sure about the installation of the unit i bought the boat with it. does anyone have a tldi tohatsu or know of anyone?
  11. hey everyone, i know a very played out question, but i am looking to re power my tinny upto the 40hp from the 30hp. im finding it just a bit hard to get out of the hole when fishing with another person, weight and gear etc. It is a pressed plate with a 3mm bottom and sides so a bit heavier than normal pressed tinnys. I want to be able to get offshore and fish the bay more so i would like the extra power. So, whats everyones opinion on motors, i was always a yamaha fan but since i got the mercury i am no longer biased towards motors has been absolutely awesome can not fault it at all. it does have electric start and trim and tilt but on a separate unit called a cmc. So "new" motor must have these. I will be putting my mercury and trim and tilt up for sale soon as one package. Sorry to rant on, but am open to any suggestions at all regarding motors, also if anyone has a motor for sale in the above range either 2 or 4 stroke happy to talk. Thanks!
  12. Hey everyone. I am currently looking to upgrade my trailer for my business. As business has grown in the past year, the little 6x4 box trailer that i carry my mowers in is just a bit to small, as i am looking at buying a zero turn in the very near future. just a want a standard box trailer with a cage. Am looking to get it galvanised as well, its nearly another g to get it galvanised though, i know grass clippings and other clippings if left on a painted surface in a steel trailer does start to eat away from a chemical reaction or something like that. does it happen to galvanised do you recon? i know on boat trailers if you leave seaweed etc on the trailer it starts to rust where it has been sitting. But anyways after any companies you have dealt with, or any good qauility second hand trailers happy to sus out. Thanks everyone,
  13. The only beer i drink from big companies are xxxx golds and i guess coopers, anything else i cant stand. What are some other good craft beers to try that arent run buy massive companies? Price isnt to much of an issue as i like to support them
