Default Old mans new toy!

Gday Forum

My old man is a huuuuge fan of fishing and beaching it up with the boat during summer here in tassie, and why not with so many glorius beaches to smash beers on around the south east cost and on bruny island you would be mad not to!


My family has been boating it up and fishing in this little beast that my old man has owned for about 12 years! it gets about 60-80 hours racked up every summer and has an un-official top speed of about 55mph (until it starts to lift out of the water lol) she really gets moving!





The engine is an imported evinrude from the states, the 2 stroke V4 loop charged engine also features an optical ignition system and ITB's

This was rebuilt after being overheated as a result of leaving the earmuffs on in 2002 costing the old man $6000 the motor had a total makeover and now makes a whopping 138HP

This is, and has been a really great boat... but now times have changed and out family has been in need of something bigger to take us to the beach more comfortably

My old man has just recovered from throat cancer and last fortnight i went a picked up his new toy while he was still in hospital costing $45K with only 108 hrs on the engine







This is a 2006 model 6.5M sea legend and boy do whittley know how to make boats!

Top speed is just over 60mph and cruising speed is 45mph

Cannnot wait to hit up the beach and go fishing flat out again with the old man like we used to! hopefully it serves to be a great boat like the old one! will be sad to see it go =(

yeah jero tows well total weight is around 1800kg dunno if that includes the trailer

I can get some cabin pics if you want to see more of it

old man has had his car kitted out with air bag suspension for his ford AU sedan which also tows really well
(au falcon is automatic which makes it miles easier at the boat ramp) we can have the boat on and off the trailer in under a minute, whittley boats are very well setup IMO
