Hi there all,
I'm enjoying the earlier threads, but it seems to have dried up?

I've done all my homework on getting a new SW 4200. Was interested in any thoughts. Last comments were ages ago.
One of my constraints is keeping it in my garage, so was interested in Marknado's trailer drawbar hinge. Also interested in thoughts between a bimini vs. a T top.

had a cool weekend away with three of them
and just upgraded my 3500 into a 4200


buy one! if you have to put a sun shelter on id go for a t top be aware though that they put alot of side ways stress on the floor! when buying new go over the boat with a straight edge to check it hasn't blown out when taken out if the mold

Great feedback, thanks. 3 boats out there - you can start a club! :) I like your new green one. Could you not get the CC in the same colour? 
There's 2 points I did not consider. Is the straight edge really necessary? Do they "blow out" often? More than what's visible to the naked eye?
regarding shade, my thoughts:
T Top - looks cool; less shade; more rod and walk around space; too high to fit under my garage door. (Oceansouth make a T top that slides up and down. Not fixed to the floor, rather to the sides of the CC. Anyone had any experience with these?)
Bimini - doesn't look as cool as the T top :); more shade; restrictive to rod and walk around space; fold down v flat.

When I sold my Gemini, this was the boat I was going to buy as there has not been a single Haines 445 for sale in 12 months.

I was going to go the CC T top and put clears from the t top but down the sides of the console and to the back of the T top. Of course that would take a lot of care not to be tearing the tie dows etc. Only use when needed etc.

There is a short leg version of the 4200, i think usually made for the tiller steer option, but go for the long leg if you can, whilst unlikely, it keeps your transom nice and high from wake surge, following seas etc. Of course a good bilge should make short work of the conditions you would be using a 4200 in.

My only concern with poly boat was earlier models use to deform. But Im pretty sure SW put metal stringers in them?

I also really like the Mac 420 CC. Much lower sides and transom, but makes a great spearing and island hopping boat. Even the mac 360 jockey console is an amazing little 2 person boat.

Here is a good video of the 4200 in a bit of Slop

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrixYgEWM44&ab_channel=Thecaptain

Im now holding out for a glass hull, but have my eye on 4 other used hulls as saved searches in trademe should they pop up and the sw4200 is one of them, 

Has anyone looked into putting scuppers in poly boat? I like bilge pumps, but you cant go wrong with duckbills imo.

Hi FizFisho,
thanks for the notes above. And yes, I've seen that Youtube video, as well as heaps others :)
Keeping an eye on Trade Me like you. Missed out on one yesterday that was advertised for $17.5k with a 2X 40hp Parsun with v low hours... bugger. 
I'm leaning towards a T Top - one that slides down. I might have to modify it slightly by 20mm as the lowered height will catch the garage door?

Why, hello there. In my absence these last few weeks, I've been busy taking delivery of my brand new SW4200! The good guys at Silverdale Marine did me a real good deal - thanks guys. Centre console, 50hp two stroke Tohatsu, anchor kit, boarding ladder & power switches - a shade over $20k. I've since added a 7" Lowrance GPS/fishfinder/depth thingy.
Still running the motor in, but have managed a blip up to 24.9knots (in some rather choppy swell).
Now busy building an Oceansouth T top.
Question: when screwing anything into the plastic (e.g.: floor), what's the best way? Drill, epoxy, SS screws?

No need for epoxy, and it won't bond to the polyethylene without flame treatment and G-flex. Just screw straight into the plastic. A bit of water might seep around, so if this is going into the floor I'd get a plastic welder to weld some plates in for you to bolt or screw into. You don't want water in the foam. 

If it's light stuff into the sides or whatever then it doesn't really matter.

We have a Mac. I drill a small pilot hole and use stainless screws with a wider than normal gap between the threads. My handrails are just screwed and they get a fair workout sometimes with no issues. I’ve cut out a few inspections hatches to reach into places to put plates with nuts welded on mount things e.g. the rocket launcher. Then screwed a container onto the inside and used that as extra storage behind the inspection cover.
