WA plate boats

 Hi All


Ive been loking at a WA plate boats boat and wondered if anybody had any experience or knowledge of them. Im a bit wary of inadvertantly buying of of those chinese boats decked out locally. I  understand they are built in Pinjarra. 

Cheers mbkfireman

Mark is your guy at Custom Ali Boats, in Furnissdale I think.

he builds a nice boat and gives you the option of fit out included or you do it yourself.

he has a Facebook page showing off some of his builds.

 Yeah used to be black dog boats.

I had him build me a walkaround last year. Builds a quality boat at a good price.

I will go through Mark again for my next build.

Southbound Boats

 Hi all

Have been looking at a Southbound boat, 7 metres.

Do they handle rough south coast seas.

Any experience with build quality and finish?

Any comments or experience with them, either good or bad appreciated.
