MY BOAT IS FOR SALE!

Selling a boat is not unlike selling a much-loved car. Why do we always get so attached and struggle to let go? Is it because we name the buggers and have these beautiful long relationships with them? Or maybe it’s all the memories we’ve had in them? Either way, watching a ship sail off to a new home is damn emotional - so here goes. My baby is on the market - she’s shiny, she’s packed with extras and she’s now listed on Trade Boats.

 

Up for sale is my Haines Hunter 525 Prowler centre-console. It's a unique fibreglass fishing boat fitted with a 115hp Yamaha four-stroke outboard. I'm located in Sydney and asking $33,500. Here's the direct link to the listing: http://www.tradeboats.com.au/detail/marine/boats/haines-hunter/525-prowler/146969

Is there a fish you want me to attempt to catch? A location I should fish? A photographic challenge? You tell me. Either email fishfingers18@yahoo.com or leave a comment below.

 

Until next week.
