  1. no, thats the new renegade, for a small tinny really impressed all round and especially with the ride and the stability at rest ! 50 yammy four stroke, side console The only improvement i found it really performed much better after i fitted a hydrofoil And of course as previously mentioned, the minn kota with spot lock just ramps up our results shitloads!! Thanks for the kind words and encouragement, it really is grreat to be back to the bay where i feel i belong!!! Anyone know of where Webby {Brian} and any of the old Ausfish crew ended up? I can't seem to get my head around why i should have to pay to become a member of a fishing site to contribute towards it?? weird shi t that is .....
  2. About 15 years ago i used to fish the bay islands regularly with my sons and one close mate, but then some life changes got in the way and my close mate unfortunately passed away Back then i was a regular to Ausfish and met some great blokes, and had some great fishing adventures. I sold the 5.2m Formosa 10 years ago or so, but have recently rekindled my passion for the bay again and have bought a 4.2m Renegade with the desire to fish the bay again with my two sons Well, the glorious bay is still there all these years later and i am thoroughly enjoying re-living the good old days! What a beautiful place we have right at our back door! Luckily i kept some gps marks from all those years ago which are still producing some great fish. These are from east of Green Island in just 5-6m.
  3. I have a 4.2m Quintrex Renegade and recently self installed a Minn Kota Riptide I Pilot with spot lock. It was under 2K complete with a 120ah battery. I have never used the anchor since. The advantages of using it when fishing or even exploring are mind blowing , lash out and spend the extra coin..... Actually i would go as far to say that it would be more important to me, if i was on a budget, to spend the coin on an Ipilot, instead of spending more on a flash tinny and a flash motor It's like i've been born again... and i"m an atheist lol gives me a boner every time i go out and deploy the electric ......
  4. Picked up a Minn Kota " i Pilot" for my tinny and self installed myself recently. All of our fishing is estuary based and also including open bay areas from Macleay out to Mud island Holy crap, i don't know how i ever did without one! , what a magic bit of gear...... Spot lock is fantastic ! Have not even thought about touching the anchor rope since yeeeehaaaaaa Obviously also great for slow trolling lures, slowing drift speeds when flicking plastics and doing it all silently without spooking fish. As long as the elec motor lasts for a considerable amount of time , i would consider it the best value piece of equipment i have ever purchased for any boat ever.....
