Buying Your First Boat - Tips and Advice
Boat 4 years ago 6,169 views
A run-down of the tips and tricks I learnt researching and buying my first used boat - a 1978 Fleetline Sapphire 4.5 with an 60HP Evinrude outboard. In the winter of 2016 after considerable research online (particularly The Fishing Website forums http://www.fishing.net.nz/forum/) I purchased a 1978 Fleetline Sapphire. It's a Rex Henry model made by his Fibreglass Mouldings company in East Tamaki. It has an Evinrude BE60TLECM on the back with OMC controls up front. In the video I run through what I've learnt and do a quick tour of the boat. In future I plan to share the progress of me updating and restoring the boat into a more attractive, comfortable and safe vessel. Comments and feedback welcome.
