Garmin have recently introduced a range of keenly priced, easy to use fish finders culminating with the top of the line Garmin Echo 550c.
Ross and his family covered 212 nautical miles and used just 165 litres of diesel – much to the surprise of his fellow Club members
This is a really well-thought-out boat. The owner had only had a short run offshore, but found she handled 25 knots on the nose really well,
The boat was built for an owner who wants to use it to fish offshore with his mates, so it’s a bit ‘blokey’ but that doesn’t mean quality has been sacrificed.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable test drive—the time goes too quickly in this entirely pleasant boat. If you’re looking for a sub eight-metre vessel, you have to look at Bayliner’s 245 Cruiser.
