another cracker hull ( dickeys ), and yes, massive thumbs up to the tristrams - seriously good bluewater hulls, up there with the very best fibreglass boats in the world for their lengths.


Every Saturday night I lick my lips in anticipation waiting for those 6 desired numbers to roll up so I can go buy my  Dickey 750 custom, about $165 k should do it. Cry

Those Raymarine plotter/sounder combos are awesome, looks the same as the one in our boat.

Yep, hopefully some Spanish and cobia blood soon Aunty  Smiley
It's the e125 touch. I can sync my iPad to it so can use it as a sounder screen as well and overlay the marine parks etc onto the char plotter etc. it's a good bit of kit.

I can see you have been talking with Lance and Kinsley
After a lot of soul searching I chose a Garmin 751xs – largely because it was apparently easier for old fullas to use – just finished the install
But HTF am I ever going to remember to turn off the sonar when I get back to the ramp – always stress of getting the boat on the trailer and confusion reigns
They reckon the Chirp transducer will cook itself rapidly if it is left on out of the water  Roll Eyes
Might roll the boat out of the shed next fine day and switch it on – see how it goes – apparently can either switch off the sonar or stick the transducer in a large bucket of water

Yep 13000 lumen light bar with spotters in middle and spreaders either side. Coming in across narrow bars at night now will be a lot easier.

I tried for the 150 but couldn't get a compliance plate as max rated for 140 so didn't want to stuff up insurance even though the motor weighs the same as 150.

First trip out on Sunday so looking forward to it.

gotcha - top motors either way cobber. I know of a fella that got over 5000 hours on his 135, and it was still going strong when traded. Stats like that were near impossible with outboards 15 years ago

If anyone has been thinking about getting a VW Marine engine, I can speak very highly of them. We have started keeping a ski in the cabin of our Tristram 741 Offshore so that we can ski out to the fishing spots. Deep water starts a single skier easy as, not even full power. We get very odd looks passing other boats at 30MPH in a 3.5ton hardtop, complete with game poles and a rocket launcher full of rods, while towing a skier.
Our last Tristram 581 had a 150hp Yamaha V-Max engine on it and we raced the bridge to bridge ski race in it, as the only boat to ever deepwater start 3 skiers going upstream in the Waikato river  Cool
We might have to start practicing with the new boat, I think it will look great screaming through Hamilton with say, 6 skiers holding on behind?  Grin
Can't speak highly enough of the 741 or the engine pushing it, a very happy Tristram customer.  Smiley

After spending much of my boating in Displacement boats or large heavy mono hulls I was very dubious about the praise being laid down on the modern pontoons.

Aunty posted some amazing reports and backed them up with epic adventures.

The final nudge towards pontoons came after Aunty had done a massive trip to the South island and ventured far out into what can only be described as often frightening waters.

We were extremely fortunate to be able to have someone with his well endowed  well  vast experience  cast a critical eye over a boat that we were very keen on but quite a long driving distance away.

To say we are thrilled with the boat is an understatement, our last fishing trip in a decent 1.5- 2mt S/W swell and an  8knot N/W forecast showed me just how good these boats really are, especially when the 8knots turned very quickly in 28-30 knots turning the big swell into a troubled sea, similar to being inside a  tumble dryer. Grin

Sincerely I thank you Sweet lips, I am sure Mike can repay you (on the next hunting trip) for the time and effort you  generously gave checking it out for us.
