Used / New Inboard Boats

Postby danwalton86 » Sat Jun 21, 2003 6:24 pm

Hay... Im 16 at the moment... and I'm looking at getting a boat a boat just after i turn 17 (November)...
I want inboard because of how clean the wake is compared to an outboard... And need a reasonably deep hull so I can use fat sacs to make the wake bigger...(is that right?? :? :?:?)
Ive got a budget of $10000 AU...
What do u guys recommend??

Dude You need deep sides as opposed to a deep hull
but for 10k you might be limited in your options I'd just keep an eye on the trading posts
but even then you can still load it up without deep sides (I have a senator and the sides aren't very deep) you just have to know how to drive so you don't get water over the bow with your own rollers going back to pick someone up.

I could wait a lil while an save a bit more money.. $15000 I wouldnt be able to wait any longer... What did u mean by being able to drive properly to prevent takiong water over the bow??What do u do to stop this?

Nothing like getting a bow wave over the bow. Ask PjDave, he is the original waterboy !

good to know that everyone does it I'll have to show this to all those I have soaked in the past he he
To stop it I wait an extra couple of seconds before going back to get the rider. The scary part for me is that we get water coming up onto the bow when the nose dips after we button off the gas when shes sacked up ...going in a straight line

Ohh the days of old. xlts were notorious for bow waves when loaded up. Years ago we went away for a weekend up at the lake, thought we would get a friday afternoon set in but didnt have time to put the sacks in before dark. I came around to pick up the rider and caught a bow wave , itwas that big it went over the binimi and and hit my mate sitting on the back seat, also soaking a canadian exchange student. She had only brought one set of clothes for 3 days.

Anyway when we pulling the boat out we had realized that we had left 6 20 litre drums of water hiden up in the bow :D

Bit of an overkill but during the week we would put 5-6 20lt drums in the bow 10 acrross the back (The boat had no rear seat) two fat sacks either side of the engine 3 people. Tried the same thing with the sportser and it didnt work very well.

Got to love club boats :D

for 10gees an older Lewis would do the job to get you started. I spent a fair bit of time behind one. We never got to weight with ballast just people, I reckon it would of been quite respectable with some seriouse weight though.
