After much deliberation & research - We have settled on the NEW Haines Siganture 485 SF - Does what a tinnie does, only much better !

A totally practical boat & should be idealy suited to the varied fishing we have in & around Hervey Bay. The ride is soft, quiet and it's an ideal sportsfisher with a flat wash-down floor and has loads of options. There is space to move around, an ice chest, dry storage lockers and heaps of other useful places for our fishing gear. The hull planes sweetly with a 60hp outboard & complies with the engine restrictions on Lenthalls dam - we will opt for the side console set up you see in the package here 

Rod locker - closed Rod locker

*The team at Haines are also working on a new rod locker to be fitted in the port side gunnel at present

Technology wise it is the first of a new class of fibreglass boat that will out perform tinnies in every aspect. Using a process never before seen in whole boat manufacture, Resin Injection Vacuum Assist Low Emissions technology (RIVALETM), the end result is the next generation of the Australian made Australian icon... but stronger, lighter, quieter, smoother riding and great value for money.

We believe EasyTow build the best boat trailers we have seen to date & had them custom built our new trailer around the Haines 485SF Hull with skid support to enable us to also use KeelShield - http://www.easytow.com.au/index.php

DuraHub

*Durahubs are standard equipment on all EasyTow Trailers - http://www.durahub.com/

Keel Shield

KeelShield® protectors provide the strongest most durable protection for your fiberglass or aluminum boat’s hull. The 3M adhesive system and Urethane Polymers give you a true – 100% Customer Satisfaction Lifetime Warranty. 

*NOTE :If your trailer is designed that entire weight of the boat rests on rollers or a support beam along the keel, we do not recommend installation. If the rollers can be lowered or the side bunks raised to clear the rollers, the KeelShield adhesive will not be affected. *May not be suitable for some aluminum boats with reinforced keelbone.

We'll be running a HDS 8 combo on the console & a HDS5x on the Motorguide up front - adding the new Structure Scan when available in November :- Check out the video @ Proof of Performance
