This is a subject that often comes up in Caravan & 4WD forums but I was reminded of the issue again when an e-mail from a fellow BT owner included the info that they were changing from a Zodiac to a Tinnie. At the same time were were laying out a plan for next year - this includes a bit of whiting fishing etc in the Bite & a couple of weeks barra fishing in the Gulf. Both of these pleasures are, I would assume, denied to Zodiac Owners. Angie et al if you plan to get the most out of your BT including a bit of fishing will a Zodiac do the job? Andy

On a puerly personaly leval, as someone who lives to fish, I just wouldn't feel safe in a Zodiac. Pulling in crab pots, gaffing the big one or poking up small creeks chasing prawns with a cast net. We did consider going that rout until I saw an adventure doco where the Zodiac went flat out at sea and it was a race to get to land befor it sank in shark infested waters. Not for me!!!!! Also we didn't want to be too limited as to where we could go and what we could do. We love our Tinnie, you can see it in the photo album. Tight lines Lynne

Hi All, Yep, I'm dumping the Zodiac, and I have picked up my new tinny a 3.7 mt Stessel Edge tracker lite. The theory of a Zodiac was great, Sea kayaks on the roof and duck in the back, all packed well, till time to use them, one hour to unpack and inflate the duck an extra 30 minuets to put the special bulldog together, when done great!! BUT then deflate and pack duck, unbolt the extras from the trailer and pack it all away. One and a half hours later in 37 deg heat not my idea of fun. I found the duck a great boat to play with, but it has restrictions, so if any one wants to bye a 3.5 mt Zodiac Mark 1 hard floor with all the mods for a Bulldog trailer I have one only 10 hours old used in fresh water once. Not the best way to start a sales pitch but hey! your all boggers and I can’t con a bog! Graham
