    Hey Folks,

    Bribie Islander here. I just bought myself an apple green POLYCRAFT 4.50 Drifter CC with a yammy f60 from the Brisbane boat show. I take delivery in 4 weeks. The 450 is big enough to get out and terrorize a few knobbies and kingies but also small enough to get up through the shallows of pumicestone passage. I'm upgrading from a 420 tinny and the suspense is killing me while I wait for the new green machine to be put together. It's going to feel like much more boat than a 420 tinny!

    I'll be posting pics as soon as I can!

    Cheers

        Hi, I live and fish around Bribie. Your going to notice a huge difference between the 4.5 and your old tinny.

          Be warned - polyFrank has a half-inch machine gun on his boat. He likes to put a "warning shot" through (not across) the bows of anyone daring to fish "his" patch.

              Doug still lives in the world of small inch measurements MG, probably something to do with his genitals. Ha ha ha ha.

                    I was going to ask for some shots after you got it, but no need.

                    Very, VERY nice rig mate. Congrats!!

                      Cheers guys

                      Got a chance to have a fish today. First trip in the new poly and success!

                      Went out around cape moreton and I'm amazed with the offshore capability of such a small boat!

                          Nice fish, well worth the trip up to the top of Moreton.

                          Certainly, a great day on the water yesterday, glassed out where we were till about 10am.

                            I've been out the cape the last 3 days in a row and nailed kingies off the surface every day. Here's some of the action I managed to capture on the gopro.
