Re: Flamingo 180 opinion

Keep the explorer!!! The flamingo is a good cabin boat, but because night fishing has been banned, it's rather pointless. The cabin takes up the most part of the boat, leaving you with a rather small fishing area in the rear. A centre console is far more suitable for all-round fishing, be it sitting...

Re: Foam versus bottles

Re: Trailer Brakes

Hi

When the weight is above 750kgs of the entire rig.

Just check your traffic department licence as well. If it says B on your drivers licence, you can tow up to 750kg's. If it says EB on your drivers licence, then you can tow up to 3500kg's.

Regards

Re: Which 150 - 200 HP Motors are known for Reliability??

On paper, the new 150hp mercury is the best 150hp motor. Lightest weight, biggest capacity and best warranty. However, seeing as its still a very new motor, nobody has any idea on reliability. Mercury's latest 4 stroke range has been performing very well, so this MIGHT very well be a AWESOME motor.....
