New duo offering lots of features
LEADING alloy boat manufacturer Stacer puts out a pair of 4.27m conventional V-bottom, open, tillersteer dinghy variants that are ideal for local inshore, protected bay, estuary and river fishing.
Both are a step up from the basic Seahorse 429 entry-level model and have additional features that transform the outfits into ultrafunctional fishing platforms.
The nifty Rampage model comes with a standard two cross-thwart configuration, but the front section of the boat is filled in with an elevated, and carpeted, platform that provides heaps of storage room underneath.
The outfit gets a recessed foredeck rope well and an anchor can be externally mounted by fitting an optional extended bow roller bracket. The platform makes anchoring hassle-free.
A low, carpeted centre floor section, handy side pockets, a rear boarding step, fuel tank rack, split bow and aft side rails are all standard features.
The hull bottom is 3mm gauge alloy and a 30hp outboard is spot-on for a 2-3 person load.
It is an exceptionally practical fishing package.
The Northern Fisher, pictured, is a newly released multi-purpose boat that comes with an inventory of custom fit-out options to suit specialist fishing applications.
Side-deck extrusions provide the structural strength to dispense with cross-thwarts.
This creates a roomy and clutterfree, walk-around outfit which has a flat, full-length carpeted floor designed to take two pedestalmounted bucket seats.
A deep, long side pocket, an anchor well, split bow and side rails are standard.
Optional extras include a front or rear casting platform, sports console, live-bait tank, tackle tray and an electric motor bow mount.
