New boat

 Got sick of coming home from work and sitting around decided to dabble Into the boating community. 5m raider custom centre console found it a tad underpowered but will suit me for the time being been out a few times for a couple bags of whiting squid a day crabs just building up the confidence to get off shore

 Well done . Gotta start somewhere. Certainly nothing wrong with a feed like them. 

Once you get the feel of the tub you will venture out a bit further and get the bigger fish. But you do realise now you got a boat you will want to upgrade all the electronics and you will stay broke

 Agree good start any day with those catches, as you alluded to all about getting confidence in the boat and yourself. Look forward to those future photos.

You never seem to stop modifying changing adding to them, but hey it's all good experience even if it keeps you broke

Great boat

Yeah, I'm biased as I downsized to one.

like you, I can get a feed of sandies for about $8 in boat fuel, and a lot less stress for those quick trips. No crabs for us due to wife's allergies.

great to see, and its better than no boat!
