You are doing the correct thing spending the money on your beloved Ski Vee -
nothing wrong with some TLC after many years of good service it gave you

Not a Ski Vee, but another of Arlindo's refurbs, my small cabin boat - new deck, foam and paint job...with 30 Suzuki. Glad the tree didn't drop on the boat or cars after the mini hurricane/tornado we had on Saturday afternoon here in Matola....lots of damage to houses, cars, trees, carports ect..

I can suggest Arlindo to any visitors that picks up damage to their boats whilst visiting Moz....good solid job!

See rain puddles by boat, been raining quite heavy these last few days.

My last two Ski Vee's had these Teak Bump Rails fitted.
In the Surf it helps the guys to get a firm foot hold to jump on the boat and in general it gives the boat a nice trim finish

Thanks Thika, yes I just wanted a small boat for 1 or 2 man operations, easy to launch/operate. I know mine is a wet ride in a bit of chop. Might have to get a proper oil skin for the winter, believe me the water does get cold up here in the winter, you know Moz very well, so it's not always warm 26 d/c plus water. I will chat to Miles and Hamco and see what durable oil skins they are using down in the Cape.

GT caught from my Ski Vee
The Gunnels is just perfect for Jigging at the back
I have done away with the fuel hatch that used to be between the Transom and the Center Consol -
all that deck space is great for figginf and popping

Ernest sitting on the seat of the Fuel Hatch infront of the Center Consol.
This is a great spot because as you see he puts his one foot on the gunnel for support while his GT takes off at a rate of knots.
I find my Ski Vee perfect for two people =
lots of space two up for Jigging & Popping and Game Fish Trolling

Hi all

I have had my SkiVee now for one year and am very happy. I have launched her from the beach 95% of the time and she is really good through rough surf. Once you get used to her she is a dream, she does not like a following sea though, if you power through the lull it comes out the other side nicely. She also likes to be trimmed up as she is wet. Easy to tow and beach...for someone living in JHB is a dream.

Tsutsuma / Serra Moz

This thread is awsome. We have had so many comments the last year from the Big Boat fraternity and this takes it all back to the adventure rather than the equipment. In the mid late 90's when Mozambigue was still rof en onbeskof we went 3-4 times a year as I was based in Swaziland our fishing fleet was
1) 15,6ft Ski Vee - 2x30 yammies
2) Dick Manten Sea Star 2x40yammies
3) 14,6 Invader - 2x 40 Mariner
4) 16,6 Dorado - 2x40 Yamaha's
5) 530 Cobra Cat 2x85 yammies
Zavora, Canda Island, Macanetta , Kozibay , Ponta da Ouro , Marangulo was our places of Choice until everybody started buying Big Yelds/ Big Cobra cats , all of a sudden the frequency of fishing deteriorated because it became to much of a mission and Sodwana/Vidal/Richardsbay/Shelly beach tournaments replaced the adventures into the unknown, the tackle got more complicated and the fish more evasive , and more of a mission to the point where the boats got sold in the early 2000's and Golf/4x4 overland trips became the focal leisure activities.

The 4.8-5.2m size monohull boats are super travel boats as they are comfortable with any 4x4bakkie, 2x40 motors make fuel consumption less of a issue - that 530 CobraCat was a awsome boat on the sea but to get it there and fueled was a real beeeaaiiittcchh, making Ponta and Macanetta the only real fun destinations for it - but the lighter boats had no problem going anywhere thru the sand.

The Teak on the side of the Gunnels may be something not as common but I like it as well and put a piece on our new boat as well.

Those pics of Santa Maria / Inhaca makes the Zambezi trip we got penciled in for Nov look less attractive.
