I used to be an agent for the pointy punts they built, bit unstable under foot as the entry was too sharp but they were fun light weight boats, a local fellow here used to have one like yours with a small outboard, often took it offshore out of Iluka chasing mackeral, he had some hair raising trips coming back from Black Rock to Woody Head in it, but he caught plenty of fish as well.

Interesting, what sort of time does it take to set up for fishing and putting everything away.

Quite often our fronts appear without a lot of warning.

Any problems loading or unloading on the roof racks
Looks very stable with high sides, ideal fishing unit.

Thanks for posting.

Regards John

took it out this a.m for a short trial - had a light coloured dugong cruise past me near the 'avon' wreck in the pumicestone passage - wasnt concerned about me at all 
everything seemed to work fine  but launch & retrieve took 25 mins - just a bit too long 
cheers

Very nice unit mate and good to see some fish going in it, but even better that at 70 you can set it up in less than half hour.
10/10 from me well done and keep it up.

Would the Mozzi help with the loading.

A mate is getting one fitted in Mid November .

The chap is flat out fitting them at the moment.
Appear to be quite popular down south. yet to see one on the road though.
