Work­mate ready to fish

NT News - Motoring - - NEWS - From Page 17

put this 6.1 Work­mate straight on to the plane and with a lit­tle bit of out trim and at 4600rpm we were cruis­ing along at 50km/h which was very com­fort­able.

We headed out to­wards Charles Point and with a large out­go­ing tide and a 15-knot wind we ex­pe­ri­enced some ugly wa­ter but the Sur­tees cut through this chop with no ef­fort and proved even bet­ter when we stopped and filled the bal­last tank and shut the trap door.

We had about 70L in the stan­dard 170L fuel tank and with 350L of wa­ter trapped un­der the floor, we had more than 400kg ex­tra weight on board and the Honda 115 just kept go­ing.

Turn­ing this boat was ef­fort­less and at rest the bal­last sys­tem worked very well.

This boat could eas­ily ac­com­mo­date four peo­ple and the fam­ily has not been for­got­ten, ei­ther.

If the kids get bored they can sit up in the cabin, plug in the por­ta­ble DVD and watch a movie while mum and dad en­joy their fish­ing.

And this boat has plenty of room for an overnight trip.

BH Ma­rine or­ders their Sur­tees boats from the fac­tory al­ready decked out with dual bat­tery sys­tems, salt­wa­ter deck wash, fold roof and seats, full nav­i­ga­tion lights, un­der-gun­nel light­ing and a rear-fac­ing spot­light, bait sta­tion and a bait tank that is part of the tran­som and moulded into the rear dive door, fully plumbed and big enough to keep any live baiter happy.

Sell­ing for a turnkey price of $66,345 as tested and dis­played, this is great value for a 6.1 plate al­loy boat that has all the fea­tures and then some.

There is a full six-year fac­tory war­ranty on the hull and a five-year fac­tory Honda mo­tor war­ranty.

Check out this boat at BH Ma­rine where the guys can show all the fea­tures and ar­range fi­nance if needed.
