    New Boat

    Dear fishraider members, In september o7 i bought my first boat after a fishing trip on hamilton island. i payed 5 times more than i wanted to spend,great salesman. In its first week second time i went fishing the fishfinder blew "small problem" Second week most times i would turn boat off it would not start again almost had to jump out and paddle to avoid jet cat and mountain rocks"starting to think boat might be a little unreliable" A week later boat was returned plugs were changed no problem found .A month later i was charged for the plugs250 dollars. Month 2 fishing live bait tank blows, fuel gauge has a differant reading every two seconds,fishfinder turns off every now and then when tired. Month 3 live bait tank pops of hinges and rear compartment of boat comes off bait swimming everywhere im furious ."somebody screwed directly into fibre glass did not put screws and hoped it would last till boat was out of warranty"boat was repaired crack where hinge came off wasnt guess thats up to me. month 4 antenna falls out of socket cable snaps "bad glue" rear left side of boat cracks from inside out"somebody sprayed fibre glass to thin" bait tank motor blows .Boat was repaired "it wont happen again we put a ten kilos worth around that week spot" Month 5 took boat out for two hours it is currently sitting in driveway BLOWN FUSES ELECTRICAL PROBLEM,CRACK TO BACK LEFT ,FINE CRACKES INSIDE BACK RIGHT,TRAILER HARNESS SNAPPED HAD TO TIE NOT TO PULL BOAT IN ,BLOWN BAIT TANK, FOULTY FISH FINDER I FORGOT FOLDAWAY CHAIRS WICH LEGS KEPT BENDING I WAS TOLD TO TELL PASENGERS NOT TO PUT WEIGHT WHEN MOVING WE ENDED UP PUTTING DOUBLE LEGS "I WEIGH 70 KILOS MY FRIENDS NOT MUCH MORE".NO ANTENNA WELL ITS THERE JUST NOT IN WORKING ORDER BOAT IS 6 MTHS OLD WHAT SHOULD I DO.
  3. i can not believe that people on this site are concerned with the fact that somebody is holding the fish closer to the camera to make there fish look bigger.What they should be concerned with is the problem of people not putting there pictures on this site as to not be picked on,there are so many good people associated with fish raider but seems to be a few drinkers .I like to see fish been caught the bigger they look the better the photo doesnt it go hand in hand with a fisherman the over extension of arms when discosing the size of the fish caught and last thing those brag mats make fish look small and dead ,could it be we have to also prove to each other our fish size i trust you all and hope you enjoy your fishing . good luck to all
  4. its not you 4000 members and two to three new reports a day ,one who has actually caught fish. ,for any one who feels bad about not catching fish every now and then i hire charter fisherman to take me fishing on my boat and we still catch nothing how do you think i feel 400 dollars later. I made the mistake the first time i fished was on hamilton island you caught so many so quick so big what a wild time so i came back to sydney and bought a boat what a mistake , good luck to everyone
