Pongrass 4.43 metre dinghy

 I've had this boat for about seven years.  The hull is older but built like the proverbial brick outhouse.  The Pograss Surfmaster was originally turned out as a forward control, smal r/about and used by some eastern states surf clubs.  The motor was purchased new last year and is a 40 hp Yamaha 4 stroke with electric start, T & T. It has only done about 20 hours.  The trailer isn't in too bad nick. A small amount of surface rust and I have only just renewed all of the electrics including new cabling  from the male plug to the new LED submersible lights.  Other gear included is a Raymarine Dragonfly 5 sounder/gps with CHIRP, near new EPIRB, near new radio, 4 anchors with chains and rope, 4 x inflatable PDF, 2 x 20 litre fuel tanks with spare Yamaha fuel line kit, an un-used landing net, s/s gaff, home made sea anchor, off shore flares.  There is also a spare wheel, but it does need a new tyre.  I have used this boat for fishing the inshore reefs and mainly fished for bread and butter fish.  This unit would be good, not only for inshore fishing, but would be ideal for pulling cray pots.

She is a good boat and I hate to sell her, but I am booked in for a total hip replacement and the specialist says I can't muck about in small boats anymore.  I'm 76 years old and was going to sell her in a couple of years anyway.  My price is negotiable at $6,800.
