Sail-World.com : It’s a boater’s world
It’s a boater’s world


'EDITORIAL IMAGE 2 - TO GO IN EDITORIAL'    Jarrod Day

Perplexed is one work that comes to my mind in the world of boating. Having just returned from the most enjoyable weekend away in Gippsland testing all things boats, I was extremely pleased to have the opportunity.

What I am extremely happy with, is that all Australian boat manufactures, brokers and importers provide a service where you can test drive a boat prior to purchasing. This is extremely important even if it is to just get a glimpse at its performance. I know of quite a number of people bringing in boats themselves from the USA and although they may save some dollars, some weren’t as impressed as they should have been with a new boat. Most of the problems I have heard of are the shallower freeboard height, having to get a new trailer etc: I mean, you can read and watch as many youtube videos on the model you’re interested in but when your new acquisition arrives and you take it out for its maiden voyage, it may not be what you’re expecting. From my point of view, it seams to be a lot of hard work and if its really not what your after then you could find yourself in a bit of a pickle.

But I guess you can always sell it and get something else?

At the end of the day, if there is one person to try to save a dollar, it is defiantly me but when it comes to assets like buying a boat, I would be the last to try to save a dollar by importing it myself. Personally, I’d rather invest the time in finding out what is going to best work for me by playing around locally on the water.

Australian boat builders right around the country are always keen to take anyone out that would like to test their boats and should you be a serious buyer, having the ability to do this is beneficial in your quest to find what is going to work best for you. If you are in the market place for a boat, best you have a serious look around. Read what you can about the models you’re interested in and then after narrowing down your selection, contact a manufacture, importer or broker and ask for a test drive. I guarantee that by having a drive in the boat you fancy, will open your eyes up a whole lot more instead of reading a review online or watching a YouTube clip. Don’t get me wrong but reading boat reviews can be very educational but you are only getting one persons opinion, drive the boat yourself and you’ll get a true feeling of its quality and performance.

This week we have another awesome line up of articles from around the country.

LEE - TO GO UNDER LEE'S INTRO -  Jarrod Day  

Over the last few weeks Lee Brake has been sharing a few tips and tricks that he picked up while fishing with Eclipse FNQ Charters in Cape York. This week, he's back with a sure-fire barra technique that saw him catch cricket-score numbers of Barramundi on most days.

GARY - TO GO UNDER GARY'S INTRO -  Jarrod Day  

Gary Brown goes into depth about weather changes and how it can affect your fishing. Gary also outlines the best websites available so you can check the weather online to find out when the safest time to head out will be on any given week.

CARL - TO GO UNDER CARL'S INTRO -  Jarrod Day  

Carl Hyland enlightens us on a proposal by the Tasmanian state government that insisted it that it will not introduce a fee for recreational saltwater fishing despite commissioning an $18,800 feasibility study into licensing models. To read more on this issue, follow the link here.

JARVIS WALKER - TO GO UNDER JARVIS WALKER'S INTRO -  Jarrod Day  

The boys from Jarvis Walker have also contributed to this newsletter and go into depths on how to effectively fish for bream and surf beaches using lures.

JARROD - TO GO UNDER JARROD'S INTRO -  Jarrod Day  

I revisit the Gippsland estuaries and explain how important it is to be fishing structure. All structures attract baitfish and subsequently, attract predatory fish. To be successful, working structure will bring an angler to success providing they understand how to fish it effectively.

Until next week, play safe on the water
