Re: Anyone Fishing?

Thanks for all the words of support!
I've booked a cabin at King Ash Bay in November 2021, in the hope of repeating the great fishing trip - hopefully without the drama. :lol:

Re: What larger design for lake use in NZ - PH22, AB23 or something else?

The OP asked if there was a way to get an idea of max hp for a boat - and I replied. I don’t have a horse in the race - I’m just an ideas guy! That said, provided it was under the max o/b weight for the design, I would always put the max specified hp on a boat as I can’t tolerate underpowered boats....

Re: What larger design for lake use in NZ - PH22, AB23 or something else?

To calculate max. recommended o/b power: 1) Calculate the FACTOR for use in calculations by multiplying the overall boat length in metres by the transom width in metres. The transom width shall not exceed the widest measurement of the transom in that part which is below the point of ingress of water...

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Dang BarraMan I was under the impression your part of the world was not suffering from the criminal activity a lot of us are. Disappoints me to learn this. Michael while I understand the lure of living in a retirement area I keep thinking of the downsides. One is most of who you deal with are older...

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

What's up Doc? Missing the daily feed from up south. Ha. A bit's going on. As we approach our mid 70s, the child bride would like us to sell up our semi wilderness hideaway on Noosa North Shore and move into a retirement village in central Noosa, adjacent to all services. I've agreed, subject to us...

Re: What larger design for lake use in NZ - PH22, AB23 or something else?

There is a formula you can use to get an idea of max hp - I’ll post it when I stop travelling. When I used it on my boat, it came out at 265 hp - so I hung a 250 on the back, which worked out pretty well. It has lots of grunt with no vices. Having now driven it in all sorts of conditions I have no d...

Re: What larger design for lake use in NZ - PH22, AB23 or something else?

Thanks BarraMan, nice videos, and great looking boat! Another consideration for sure. How do you find it at rest? Very stable or gets a bit of a roll on? Even with its 18 degrees of dead-rise at the transom, my boat is very stable at rest. My son and his mates think nothing of walking from the bow ...

Re: What larger design for lake use in NZ - PH22, AB23 or something else?

Barraman? Haha, I had the same thought! The Mangusta 20 is a great hull that would fit needs comfortably. You would need to think creatively and do the cockpit and decks to suit your specific needs, as I did. However, I doubt that you will find a better handling hull that can go like the clappers i...
