  1. Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a way or if I could beef up the transom of my tinny. It’s a savage 3.3m (11ft) but the builders plate says it can only take 12hp? Really weird that it says this as I know 3m tinnys that can still take 15? If so, I’d only be looking to bump it up to a 15hp so not much more in terms of weight of the outboard. Would it be safe? cheers.
  2. Hi all. I'm new here. After some advice/ recommendations. I'm wanting to get my first boat. There are so many options out there it's overwhelming. Will be looking at spending between 5k and 15k. (Mrs wants me to spend 5k. I want to spend 15k. Hopefully we can meet in the middle ) I will mainly be fishing places like Moreton Bay, Brisbane river. occasional trip to Moreton Island. I'm thinking I would need a tinny or similar around 4m minimum.. Most of the time it would just me me and a mate fishing but need to be able to take wife and kids for fun as well occasionally. Being able to get in and out easily is essential. stable / Safe for kids. Would like Electric Start /Trim and Tilt. Comes with or able to bow mount an Electric Motor. Easy to fish from / Stable. Not sure if Tiller or Side Console or Center Console.?? Pros / Cons ? Easy to launch / retrieve. Is there any brands to steer clear of ? How old is too old ? Whats the maximum age of a boat/motor that you would steer clear of ? Any recommendations or starting points on what I should be looking at that meets the above would be much appreciated.

  4. This was the first time I'd tried a beach launch while doing out trip around Oz. I forgot the bungs and had to go for a swim!! ha ha. Was still a fun outing though.
  5. Hey all , heading up from Ipswich to have a crack at fishing near the seaway area. Now I have a 10ft tinnie with a 3.3hp , have all the safety gear but just chasing some suggestions due to boat size . Will be getting there bout 5pm fishing till 9pm high tide (730pm) is it completely dangerous to fish seaway in that sized boat ? Looking at chasing other species not just bread and butter flathead and bream etc. any suggestions on launching site ? Abd if I will be okay ? cheers
