Boat Pics of Clinkers or Old School Boats

Postby lloydy » Tue Jan 25, 2005 9:17 pm

can people with Clinker or older style boats post some pics please,

iam interested in seeing what other people have in regards to
High Poles / Towers,

iam wanting to change the pole on my Camero Clinker and would love some ideas,

Plus i think there is a need for a post that us "average joes" can post our pride and joys up without it being followed by a $60,000 monster LOL

Cheers :P

Nice thread Lloydy. I asked cam to do a survey to find out who's using what sort of boats for wakeboarding but still no reply.

Here is ours.. It looks deceptively big but that is the camera angle. Throws a small wake, but we have a pole which makes quite a big difference. I would love to upgrade so I can ride a line longer than 55 foot and not have the wake disappear on me! :?

Here is our boat.
It is a skicraft stinger.
We got it just before Christmas and it looked like rubbish. With 4 weeks of night shift it came up a treat!
The wake is ok for a boat of its size, as the bottom is flat the wake is nice when loaded, but if you put too much weight in there it may well turn into a submarine...

We have had our boat for nearly 4 years now and we havent had one problem with the engine, Each year we have had to tune it and if we load it up with people and some ballast it does miss a beat here and there but other than that it is fine. It has a 40 litre fuel tank and that gets us about all day which is awsome but on a big day it gets about half the day. It has a ford 289 engine which is plenty of power for our needs. So the only money we have had to spend on it so far is for fuel, Oil for oil change each season and we put the hi pole in. I hope that answers you question Euro

Heres our beast

73 skicraft clinker

It runs superb, In 4 years we have never had a problem. Its got a Holden 308 and has pulled up 3 skiers...

The wake is ok for its size, but as jeppa said if you load it up to much she'll turn into a sub
