The BW 40 ain't bad either. If you gave me a Cabo 43 I could see my way to hanging to that. A Berty between 38 and 45 foot could find a place in my life.....

BUT - I'm happy with what I've got. I certainly haven't caught all the fish 'Surprise Surprise' is capable of raising yet. Only a few more months and we can start trying to winkle Mr Stickface out of his hidey holes.

Hey there Big Moocher. I paid about $6200 for my Ramco Seeker, could have got cheaper deal I suspect but got quite a few extras included like life jackets, fish finder etc and the outboard looked tidy and was fairly new. Have probably spent another 1-2k on it to get it how I want it. Got a VHF (cheap insurance!!) aqualisers (if you have a tinny get these best investment you will ever make) permatrim (pretty good but not essential) and built a new floor for the back and front and covered it with some marine carpet I got off some guy real cheap......looked real dodgy to....think it fell off the back of a truck
I don't go miles out but I do go to some pretty remote areas from time to time and in those times it is GOOD to feel confident in your boat.
If ya wanna come check out mine, see what I done to it etc feel free to pm me, ask me nicely and I'll take you out for a fish and you can see if its what you want. For me it is the perfect sized boat right now...can launch retreve myself any where and can access many places up north that bigger boats can't get to.

BM,
     Gotta love those purpose built game boats - I always try to get on board the Black Watches at any of the shows and have a good fossick around looking for ideas. The last one I saw had the latest Simrad Depth Sounder that mapped in 3d with GPS interface the bottom and stored it. What it meant was that you could basically survey an area then run over it down the canyons or along the ridges - Just awesome - and only ~60k.
    Reminds me that I need to buy a PowerBall ticket for the weekend!
       Cheers
          DA
