My new toy

Let’s hear about all those weekend toys for the boys (and girls) boats, skis, camper trailers, motor homes, 4wheel drives OK even airplanes (again add the make and model to the title we will organise as it gets unmanageable).

My new toy

Postby Ozzycamperboy » Mon Dec 19, 2011 8:20 pm

So I've wanted a boat for some time now but couldn't really justify the money and two more sets of rego's on a trailer and tinny, then this little canoe popped up on ebay

It was in a pretty sorry state, no poles for the outriggers, and covered in leaves, so I managed to get it for what I thought was rather cheap. 1hr with some truckwash and a scrubbing brush and it was lookin much more presentable.

Bought a 3.3hp outboard, again on ebay, a few weeks later. Cut up some alluminium poles for the outriggers, and I've got an sweet little fishing setup that goes on the roof racks, and only takes about 15mins to pack or unpack.

I've had it out at port stephens, and raced the ferry from nelson bay to Tea Gardens (I won in case your wondering :lol: ) and out at Berowra most recently, took 2 people and swags and fishing gear well enough. Feels very stable but I wouldn't want to use it on a cold day cause you do tend to get splashed occasionally.

That looks great!
The old bushrangers are hard to kill. And yours even has rod holders. That's the boss.
I love the idea of being able to throw the gear in and camp near on the banks of a river/lake. You can get to all kinds of places with that little motor on too.
Very envious!
