Fiberglass Or Tinnie


Recommended Posts

looking to by 11ft or 12ft boat fiberglass or tinnie , mainly use inside botany bay , pittwater ,hawkesbury . what outboard motor would suit 11ft / 12ft . any help be great .

Don't think you will find to many 11 / 12' glass boats around due to the price of tinnies in this size being far less expensive than glass.

Have a look at Polycraft , they may make a boat in that size

Personally I lean towards aluminium as they can take a few hits on boat ramps etc without damage. The trade off is , they can become uncomfortable in a short chop with the traditional "tinnie bang"

Motor wise , 9hp would be OK but would recomond 15hp. Always nice to have a few extra horses should the need arrise
