    Where To Live With Fishing In Mind

    I've done a fair bit of research already and know most of the ins and out, I even have a couple of quotes (going to be north of $20K one way for the record), Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with a specific broker, I'd like to get some first hand accounts before leaving my prized possession in the hands of strangers for that kind of trip.

    Well to update, I signed the contract this week and I'm moving to Brisbane. I'm looking for a shipping broker to help me get my boat over, anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for the replies. Yes Aussie, that's kinda what I was afraid of with the SPB, I draw more than a meter and weigh 9 ton, don't really want to risk putting her on a sand bar. In your opinion, is the pelagic fishing off the top and outside of Moreton Island comparable to Gold Coast? might be a simpleton question but my experience is limited in both areas. Cheers,

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah i've looked at a couple charts and sat photos etc. I have little experience in the area but I have been around the bay a bit and have been to Moreton Island but never been over SPB. I have been through the seaway in GC once and seemed good, it would be ideal for obvious reasons. Leaving the boat in GC would probably also save a significant amount of fuel at 80L/hr considering there are marinas within a couple miles of the seaway, just not sure if I want to drive 1.5+ hr each way every time I want to mess around with the boat.
