Very keen on one of these:
Zodiac Futura Mark Iii Aluminium for Sale. Family Boats in Australia - Yacht & Boat
There's one for sale about half a day's drive from me 2nd hand at a good price with a 50hp Honda 4 stroke. Before I drive all that way can anyone answer my questions please?
- Bit of fishing
- Water skiing (including slalom)
- Something I can take camping i.e. light weight and can beach launch with my 4WD.
- Crossing the bay to nearby islands.
Can't be more than 5.8m in length when on trailer (small garage)
I've done a fair bit of reading on the model. People say great for skiing, I have my doubts however if a 50hp could pull a male slalom skier out...?
Secondly, when crossing the bay to nearby islands, the chop can get above one metre. Obviously need to pick your days - but if you caught in such conditions what would this boat be like?
