Awesome looking boat BluffOyster.

First time I have seen a extendable front ladder/rail - looks very practical. Is there a cooktop in the cabinet on the deck at the cabin door?

Hi yes ladder works very well easy access onto the shore, good for the wife and kids.



Yip the cooktop under the seat on the deck, I have also have a diesel heater ducted the the windscreens for the cold mornings in the south.

ha ha I’d be lucky if I could paddle far enough to get me off the beach or falling out, that’s why I need a bit of petrol power. Very nice fish mate.

Haha. Capsizing is just another way to cool down in Summer. Must be getting better because the Summer average has dropped to about once every 6 weeks.
That said, that snap was caught within 100m of the shore in under 10m. Could have floated out there on a LILO...hmmm...that's an idea for next Summer.

Had this thing for a while now. ( xmas)
Have been a long time fan of  Surtees boats. They just do everything bloody well. Plan to add tabs and some spot lights later in year, but that's all I need.
Cant beat winter fishing,
This is a couple of mates Jimmy and Aaron on a beautiful calm Omaha morning en route to Little Barrier for a Lads fishing Comp. 
Colour is dark blue not black. Looks great in sunlight.

Time for a change found this in Auckland no wait time has all the extras all ready fitted.  Wash down pump, foam filled pontoons, U deck flooring, under water light had a light bar fitted, stereo and Zip wakes. Has a 175 V6 Merc on the back gets along pretty good.  Just had to get it out of Auckland bloody covid.
