Congrats Gav... sure you guys are gonna have great fun on that! Make a list of stuff you need to get it licensed and let's see how much 2nd hand kit the guys have lieing around that's not being used...? Maybe we can help a budding artist out?


I'm sure I have a couple of life-jackets to donate
when I die, may my wife not sell my fishing tackle for what I told her I paid for it... and I have bought more, a severe case of TA

I don't think you need it for Cat R, but I've got a brand new Cobra VHF radio, the only trouble is it doesn't have a mic, but I'm sure you can buy just the mic seperately.

Such a sweet little boat Gavin awesome lines. Is it a Bonefish Skiff? Tell us how you came about owning her.
Forgive me Father for I have spinned... It's been three weeks since my last cob session.

Thanks FishStyx, im not sure what boat it is  :dunno:  but it glides on the water, not too heavy and that 30hp pushes it nicely. Seans dad sent us on a mission to Port Alfred about a year ago to check this badboy and after a bit of debate we decided to bring it back to joburg. I said to his dad, if you ever want to sell it... swing it my way  :hnthnt: . So a year later and here we are, it does need some TLC but Ill work on it slowly.

Having a slightly closer look, it's not a bonefish, but post a few more pics and let's see if among us we can ID her. She has the sweetest lines.


One of my babies (Flatcat) also comes from PA... It's quite a nautical hub, having been home to Supercat and quite a few other builds.

Hey Gavin,

Got a name yet? You can't call her "ride" or "boat"...
