Combating BA (Boat Adiction)
« on: September 30, 2015, 07:01:53 pm »
The 19ft Yeld is just to big to handle for trips to local Gauteng waters soooooooooo I have purchased something smaller. It's a 16ft Acecraft that has been 'gutted', deck and buoyancy redone, 2 x 50hp T/T Yammies on the business end. Still some work to do to finish her off, Reefz I need some more UA  boat stickers please
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

My first boat was a Jurgens Craft as per the pic,  one of the many copies of the Ace craft. so full circle in a way. I'm only going to get her rated at Cat R, I don't need anything else, I've sent Shag an email about a fishfinder; so quite content at the moment
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
