That's a pretty serious looking setup you've got there Trev. Thumbs Up
 
Mmm... I'd keep away from the surf though, with all those expensive electronics. Ouch Cry
 
Good hunting... DogFish

Hey guys

This is in relation to the similar thread running.
 
I brought my South African fishing "ski" (as they are called over there) out here with me in the container. When I was there, they were retailing for around R2500 to R3000 (??) exchange rate is roughly 4.5:1.

The fishing ski's there weigh in at 25-30kg. The need to be very strong to take the hammering of getting dumped in BIG surf, which can prevent you from launching on a regular occasions-however the brave/foolish try anyway to reach the untouched waters behind the backline, while the cautious stand and watch the carnage!

Since most launching is done through4ft surf +, and you almost always have to punch some waves (either the first shore break or the last ones at backline - depending on how well you time your mad dash for the breakers), due to this and the fact you could well end up swimming back to shore to fetch your ski, they now encorporate a PVC tube into the central fish hatch (which in itself is massive to hold large numbers of game fish), but the tube runs right to the bow and enables you to put some decent size rods/spearguns stowed safely in the hatch. This avoids sand and water getting into your reels if washed back to the beach.

The most popular manufactures are listed below, and Im sure Stealth has local (AUS?) distributors.

Mine is a stealth supalight. Approx 4.3m long, very stable. Drwbacks are not as easy to drill and rivet atachments as plastic yaks, fragile up against the bricks and do not stand up well against incorrectly packed furniture in shipping containers (hence the repair bill at Paddling Perfection) Picture to follow soon hopefully........

Heaps of storage space in the hatch for gun, fins, rods weight belt, cray bag etc etc, very easy to roll on and roll off.

That is our local beach for launching on a normal day. As you can see the Stealth has to deal with a few breakers. Pics of ski to follow........

Great looking boat there saffa Thumbs Up  There's more storage in that hull than the website pix suggest. A ski like that would make light work of some of the surf launches we get down here in the Naki.

It's a pretty regulation setup I think, so I can't take too much credit. Plenty of trailblazers been there before. It is a great fishing machine though, I think I made some good choices, largely because of all the good info on this site. Actually getting toime out to go fishing is the next challenge, we have 2 weeks at Hahei this year, so guess what I'll be up to!!
