Re: Anglers Thrown From Boat..

The boats they use typically can do 160km/hr so 100km/hr is just cruising.

Kill switch is common it is activated and stops the motor when the cord with a small key is pulled out.

Re: which hull is better? 6mt quintrex or 2006 Trailcraft 570 SPORTSCAB?

The 6m boat looks to be quite a bit bigger and a better choice of the two boats IMO. Quin trailer is a top quality tandem mackay although it looks pretty dirty so I would suggest very close inspection. 150 opti whilst a great DI 2 stroke but they are very noisy so don't even consider it if you want ...

The fight however was incredible. They are such a powerful fish!

Even on my 24kg tuna rod it felt so strong.



Bugger mate next time.

Aluminium Boat Hull Grounded or Isolated
