Hmm, he who dies with the most toys, wins!!
Ours is a Stacer 5.25 Easy Rider (bowrider), with a 90Hp Johnson motor. Fully decked out, with canopy, CB radio, CD player, stubby holders, glove compartment, the works. Seats plenty of people, shame it's only 5 by law...it does the job for just about anything, whether it be out on the bay or a 'plan B' for when our ski boat decides to kack itself.
There is also my piece of crap... its a Savage, with a '96 Suzuki 15Hp motor... great for me and my cousins to get into any snag we want to up on the murray, does some decent miles on a tank of petrol, works well as a wooding trailer/storage, it should also be named "water tower" as i've towed MANY broken down boats back to the boat ramp with it! hehe. It goes quite fast for a 15Hp and has also done a good job and running me over once, twice or even three times. (I have the scars to prove it)
I'd post pics of our ski boat... if we had ever fished from it, and trust me, the thought HAS crossed my mind!
Have spent a "little" bit of money of recent time getting the old girl back into shape, still more to do, but gotta go fishing first
Here is my weapon
You're all making me jealous. I thought I could get away with fishing from the shore/banks for the rest of my life, until I started this site. I'm now convinced I need a boat, or a fellow local with one
HA HA HA, fishing from a boat is a whole new world. :razz:
Ours is a 4.75m Brooker 'Freedom' Centre Console with a 50HP 4 Stroke Merc ( all 2002), Furuno Sounder, Scotty Downrigger, Bermuda Rodholders (all 2004), etc. etc.
My boat is a 5.0 metre 2001 Seaferar V-SEA with a 90hp johno,navman chartplotter,lawrence sounder etc
