New To Boating Have a Question

Post by randyspringer »

am planning on getting a 10ft aliminium tinny, am based around hervey bay and would like to take it out to river heads, urangan, point vernon, burrum heads, torquay and so on, i am wondering how well it would handle the conditions in most of these areas, the weight on it would be only either me or me and a friend with some fishing gear, cant get a bigger boat due to storage yet so would really like to be able to make the most out of it till i upgrade but without risking anything going horribly wrong.. cheers :)

Welcome to the forum Randy.
I am not familiar with the locations you mentioned, I believe it is in Eastern Australia.
You don't specify any specs or weight capacity of your boat.
2 persons and fishing gear on a 10 foot boat needs good planning.
I suggest you need to choose calm days and stay close to shore to avoid hazardous situations.

You know when I heard tinny, I was thinking Aussie.. That is just cool...

What kind of fish do you catch??
