    for sale Surtees Profisher 575 Centre Console

    Freeboard is good mate, Some might say a little shallow but I found reaching over the side to gaff or net fish to be a good height , The extra wide deck gunnels make you feel safer also

    for sale Surtees Profisher 575 Centre Console

    BMT trailer packer is 1230Kg, Very soft riding boat mate, little wet in side on stuff, 45Degree Dead Rise in the mid ship & 21Degree @ Transom I fished all winter for bay snapper in conditions up-to 20knots with out an issue, Traveling around 32-35km per hour in head and following seas, If you fill the water ballast your will do 40kmph easy and could push a lot harder if you like. 100ltr tank of fuel will see 220-235km pretty easy at 42km cruise speed with 3 POB,

  9. My son climbed the one on bounday rd. In Deception Bay. He loved it.. your fuel figures seem pretty accurate . My Surtees uses roughly that with a 115hp yammy getting 2.2-2-4km per ltr range.
  10. Didnt end up going @Poddymullet ended up indoor rock climbing with the kids. Good on you for getting out to Hutchies and Flinders.. now the exploring can start. Your Fuel usage sounds pretty good.
  11. With tomorrows wind and tide your will be fine heading to that area, It can stand up with a run in tide and solid westerly blowing, But I would not be worried with the wind forecast, Quite easy to see the deeper water when getting close to Comby Pt and coming into the inner freeman channel, once in mate its pretty safe, try not to hug the northern part of island too much . I'm hoping to be leaving Scarborough at 6am myself ,go jig some bait then heading offshore around the Cape, You may see me in your travels. Good luck,

    Mono

    I use Schneider Klear 15lb in the bay chasing grassy sweet lip and works well on overhead gear, I find it does not like going on spin reels real well and bird nests up easily when wound on loose. Majority of time I have been using Shogun 20,30 or 40lb for chasing snapper inside the bay and Offshore. Another option for a brilliant mono is ANDE , normally deal direct with the USA when ordering .

    Anchor Advice

    I use a pretty large Danforth sand anchor with 8m of 10mm chain in the bay and find driving forward when pulling the rope in until you are directly above it works best, Sometimes we need to cleat it off and drive over it slightly if we anchored on a rubble or sandstone bottom as they can get quite stuck and we have to "back" the anchor out of what ever it may be wedged in, It also pays before dropping the anchor to check all your shackles are attached and done up, They come loose when travelling i found mostly ,
