New duo of­fer­ing lots of fea­tures

NT News - Motoring - - MARINE GUIDE - By JON HUIE

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.
