I like a bit of both but one problem with boats is when you have one it often just sits there and when you sell it due to lack of use you want one again. :(

Haha that's so true. I have a friend in a similar situation. He sold his about a year ago now but wants one again and has started looking for a new one.

I use the boat pretty much at least once a week, all year round. Unless I get crazy busy with work/life, or the weather gods are hating on me, i'll find a way to get out there.

I can imagine it would be a big call to have a boat if its only getting used a couple of times a year, it is a fairly expensive item to just have sitting around.

Sounds like you make good use of your boat :) even in winter do you take it out at least once a week?

Welcome anyway, keep an eye out cause there are a few blokes on here who do offer the deckie spot from time to time


Hey Gav, I have never fished on a boat and would like to experience it. I have had my fair share of land based fishing and would like to see if I enjoy the boat fishing. To be able to go out in the sea and fish from the boat just thinking about it makes you have pins and needles haha.

I am not talking about big charter boats, just a small boat like a jetty or something.

another option is hire a boat, you hire one for like 4 or 6 hours from Williamstown or mordialloc that's what I did a few times b4 I bought a boat you don't need a licence, well I didn't need one and that was about 12years ago not sure what the rules are now but worth looking in to.
