We have touchdown! Yep, the Stabicraft 1650 that I’ll be towing all over Australia for Trade-a-Boat Magazine has just hit our shores. She’s currently hidden away in a secret warehouse in Melbourne awaiting fit out, but it won’t be long before we’re ready for action.


The Stabicraft 1650. 


In a few weeks the hull will be primed for liftoff with a Mercury 100HP four-stroke outboard and blinged to the gunnels with Lowrance electronics. Railblaza will also be taking care of any additional fittings with their awesome range of rod holders, camera booms and the like. Let’s not forget the single axel Transtyle trailer that she’s already sitting on either – boy oh boy, it looks the goods.


Still wrapped up in plastic!

Serious rims...


 The 1650 sits lound and proud on a Transtyle trailer. 

But the best bit? After my trip is all wrapped up, one lucky Trade-a-Boat Magazine reader is actually going to win the entire rig! Stay tuned for updates and to find out the first destination I’ll be heading to. 


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


Until next week.
