Nice, awesome little boats!! See a lot of them around! Is it not better and more cost effective to go with just 1 Donkey?

Excellent choice... Really nicely laid up glass. Steve Ellis knows his trade. I had the 440 but sold it because my fishing style didn't suit. I have great respect for it's ability to get you safely through the back line.
Forgive me Father for I have spinned... It's been three weeks since my last cob session.

Yeah. They are designed as spearo boats. He does build a bigger 5.6 (I think) that has high gunnels. Company is called Fibre Tech. In Zinkwasi if I remember correctly.

Thanks. I looked at a single option. The pair of 30s came in slightly more but cant beat having 2.

Yeah shot. Im interested to see what fuel consumption will be. Thats one of my main reasons for going this route, smaller and light without crew hassles.


Motors were 47ea installed.
