The salty old sea dog Gurnard
Think this will be the first time I'm not going to heed your top notch advice.......
After much deliberating I'm 100 % decided against buying and butchering a Funyak 390 to accomodate my Tohatsu s/s.
I went and saw the Whaly range today and was in awe of the Whaly 435.
It had loads of space - its around the same length as your quicksilver but has lots more space due to the tube design.
As we saw earlier this year around Lismore the larger Sibs bridge the rough stuff better and give a smoother ride.
As this package is going to have to last me numerous years I'm saving up for a long shaft 30 hp power trim electris start with console and all the gubbins.
Just feel that Funyak with a short shaft tiller is too much of a compromise. It always going to be work in progress which I'm never going to be 100% happy with until it's fully upgraded.
A Whaly 435 will accomodate the Mrs and my 2 kids as well.
They are getting of an age that they want to go everywhere with daddy.
The 435 will also take 3 fishing as well.
I'm going to sit on things over the winter and squirrel some more funds away and see what 2016 brings.
It will be the good old Honwave Sib for my boating excursions during the beginning of 2016 at least.
I will definetly not be suggesting the joint Xmas pressie.
I value my health too much.
