Thanks for the comments Cris. I sort of agree with your logic but, Hull warranty is a non issue because as soon as the boat leaves the US there is no warranty for me :wink: . Bloody long why to send it back to California for repairs. If I buy from the warranted Aussie dealer it costs $14000 more. I ...

Current step is 46cm above ground near enough to 21" so should be good. Thanks for the replies. David Boreen Point has some nice restaurants from memory so I hope to go sailing up there when I get used to the Mac. Coothraba is only a short run up the Bruce Highway for me as I am way north on the nor...

Ops forgot the important bit. ETEC 60 here is $8800 Australian fitted that's about $7500 Canadian and as BRP are a Canadian company your price seems a bit high. But I suppose it depends on the market as there are few Evinrude dealers here all competing for business...

Take the plunge I thought of waiting a bit longer but heck I could be hit by a bus tomorrow, the wife can retire 5 years later to pay for it. Why should I ...

Mid March is ETA . :( I have to upgrade my 4WD’s trailer hitch receiver as the current one is a light duty one for a box trailer rated for only 1...

Yep that would be the Breaky Creek. 8) I am putting in a 1000L rain water tank for washing boat, car, trailer etc.. with a gurney. My folks are at Redcliffe and have a natural spring in their back yard with a bore for their pool. So I can always top up with bore water if the summer storms don't come...

Hi Eureka, I am looking at getting a new :macm: in the new year and have been facing the same question. I am in Brisbane so will be doing a similar type of sailing or should I say motoring, just in a better location :) . Nice motor out wide Caloundra and a nice day sail trolling for palegics. Then a...
