Haha. It will be good fun if we get good boat numbers. Hopefully the billies will be biting in more than one place so we can spread out a bit though.

Good question. If it's swags I'll have to extend the front deck some how. Seeing we will have a good crew and maybe 4 boats who knows

just some stats from the 8 boats i caught up with on the last sked calls. 85-62-35

They were certainly hungry and if the weather holds out the moon phase is even better for Nogood's Carton Comp

I accounted for 2 fish the weekend previous and 6 for the weekend just gone, 4 during the competition off Dundee.

5,1,0

headed out today off Dundee in the Offshore boat hire and charter boat. The weather was rough but the stabi handled it comfortably. We raised one pod of 5 sails, that we saw free swimming.

Hooked one briefly on a pusher.

Just managed to dodge the storms. Found the fish about 1230. There was not much bait around and very few birds working

So Jon - you've hired the Stabi a few times now yeah? If you were in the market for an offshore boat & had a spare $100k would u consider the 7.5m?
What size is the donk?

This boat is available for hire or charter. I run the charters in it. So I have done heaps of trips in it. They are an excellent boat. We had a 250 on this and it is good but if you go up to the 7.5 I wouldn’t have less than 300.

You need to be able to have 4-500L of
Fuel and 5 guys with all their stuff.

The weight makes a huge difference.
