We had to sell our beloved Haines and go for something a little smaller. We picked up a good size tinny that needed a little work done to make it useable. I have dropped in and seen the lads at Port O Call a couple of times when I have been down their way and they have been a great source of experience and knowledge. Any parts that I have required they have been great in supplying me, and have been a wealth of information and ideas to bounce off. Really appreciate that old fashioned service. Most places don't want to know you unless they are making a fortune out of you. Appreciate the help and the honest feedback. Cheers.
Hi! I recently bought my 481 Fishabout from Les Broughton at Caloundra Marine. I was so impressed with the advice Les gave me regarding the boat and the 75hp Etec brp (two stroke) motor, which I ended up going with. I had gone to other marine boat retailers and found that Caloundra Marine, Les and all the staff there, to be very professional, knowledgeable and with a straight talking down to earth attitude of explaining the different options available. Les was able to guide me to the correct boat choice after me telling him what I wanted it for and the budget I was working with. I really have to thank him for what I believe is the perfect set up of boat, trailer, engine and even boat cover.
