Well well well. the mighty Yellow Peril Viking Tempo II is going to a new home out Bow Bowing way and will be renamed the Tugboat!

So, the question on everyones lips is what will Dave/Perils new ride be?

As one of the most experienced and keenest AKFF members we can be sure that he has done his homework and will be getting only the best!

He's not letting the cat out of the bag, so nows your chance to have your 2 cents worth on what you think the new Peril (P2) will be.

Poll options above. Take a guess/ have your say - poll closes Friday!

How come 'Beanbag' isn't one of the choices?

BTW Dave, thanks but I wouldn't count myself as experienced, just noisy.

I reckon it will be a Prowler Elite, although I seem to remember :?: Dave went to the Boat Show in Sydney and there was a very big Hobie stand there, so this could be an outside bet. :D :D :D

I am only new here so I wouldn't have an idea what Peril would be looking to buy.

Having been researching the yaks lately, to buy one myself, I find the prowler 4.5 and the predator similar kinds of floating fish and both akin to my needs. Then I look at the value for money aspect and the predator wins! So that my 2 cents.

Cheers, Milan.

Well Guys, I got the Cobra Pro Fisherman. Just struck me as really well laid out for estuary fishing, particularly with the sealed well which can be used as a live well for the Ausbream socials. Also the centre hatch permits the stowage of rigged rods for surf entry and reentry or large fish (in an appropriate fish bag).

I'm aware of a couple of issues but will let you know how I go with it. Matched it with a Cobra seat and a Cobra 180 paddle (glass shaft/plastic blades). Total package cost $1740, which includes standard rod holders and rudder.

Will post some photos tomorrow, after the challenge

No but the hatch directly behind the seat opens into an enclosed section that does as a live well. Won't hold any monster fish though.
