“I took the boat out yesterday on Lake Somerset again, and couldn’t wait to tell you how good our little boat is now. My wife said, “it’s a completely different boat altogether.”
“The Bluefin Tinoo’s are a very narrow roof-topper, and are more of an aluminium canoe than a dinghy, but the boat is easy for me to load & unload from the roof by myself, so it suits my purposes. However there was no way my wife and I could be on the same side, so for safety reasons I got the Collars fitted even though I wasn’t 100% convinced they’d work as good as you said they would. But the difference is so amazing, my wife and I can both lean over the same side and wash our hands! Pulling up the crab-pots is so much safer and easier now, as is casting – I don’t rock the boat any more.
“Just the wake from a passing boat used to almost tip me out, whereas now, they don’t bother me at all. The tinnie slap has also gone, and I don’t bang through the chop anymore. We don’t get wet at all anymore either! The reduction in spray has been fantastic.
“I’m very, very happy. I’ve now got a big boat in a small boat – something I never thought possible. Any boat that rocks ‘n’ rolls should have a Boat Collar fitted. I’ll guarantee it myself. I’m happy to talk to anyone about my experiences, so please pass on my phone number for them to call me – 07) 5495 7483.
“Thank you so very, very much!”
