Hi Ferk, just post your question up on the main Briney Bar board for maximum exposure, I am sure someone could help. As well, perhaps trying to email Rayglass direct would put you onto the folks you are looking for?

not sure if anyone else is having this problem but when I click on the link in the first post it takes me to the maori calendar (which is good info regardless :) ) 

However if anyone is trying to find the right link it is http://www.fishing.net.nz/fishing-advice/boat-reviews/ 

cheers

Yeah, I'm finding the same issue.  Would be good to browse a decent collection of older trailer boat reviews.

Thanks for the page address Twosix.

Hi Et Welcome to the forum.
I personally have not owned a pontoon type boat best advice is to try a few different ones out.  A mate of mine has a 589 Stabicraft hardtop awesome family boat, has high sides and rides well. Unfortunately is more than double what your budget is.
    A Good Skipper Keeps the water on the outside of the boat.

Welcome aboard. A Mac 570 could be within the budget. I've been out in a few and found them really stable/safe but not the most comfortable ride IMO. Esp if you've got a bad back. Others may disagree so keep an open mind.

How big is your family and what kind of boating are you wanting to do?  ie fishing on lakes harbours, going out wide, towing toys for kids as well?
Good fishing trip nothing breaks, great trip catch fish.

What can you tell me about kiwi kraft ? l've heard good things about them that they ride really well ?? the hulls are built strong??? . But they lack in space & seem like they are more suited to diving where l'd be fishing most of the time ?? bummer i guess it's pretty hard to find the perfect boat
