Fishmaster's Regent Viscount, Rottnest Is. Western Australia

Got a fishing boat you've worked on or are still working on... Bought a new fishing boat and want to share your pride and joy with others? (or just brag!)

Fishmaster's Regent Viscount, Rottnest Is. Western Australia

This was the last boat that I had in Australia, prior to coming to the USA.

A 20 ' fibreglass half cabin Regent Viscount.

I designed the rocket launchers and had them custom built.
The same with the swim platform and ladder.
I used to scuba dive so the swim platform served two functions

I) for getting in and out of the boat and

II) it was a good place to store an additional esky or a bucket of smelly bait or berley

I would also stand on it in calm water (like in a Rotto bay) and spin for herring...

With a V-Berth up front and all of me gear and my gas stove etc,
I would stay over at the Island quite happily for two or three days at a time on my own...

Had trouble selling it before I left the country... I was in a hurry so I left it with a broker in Fremantle (this was around ten years ago) when I came to the USA. I believe a bloke from Dampier bought it... Don't know if she's still afloat...

And another one at Rotto (Rottnest Island) with a storm looming. She was a good boat in big seas or was it just the captain...
