Guys, new to this and debating buying a yak, I have been offered a Cobra Marauder for $1,800 with rudder, running rig, Humminbird 570 and tagit bag, 4 starports and rod holder, is that a reasonable price? Don't plan to be more that a km or so offshore up Waitarere way.

Read a lot about the profish 400 and 440's, but not sure I want to stretch to almost 3k with all the extra's to start off with

You will have to go about 2 km to get about 10m depth. At 1k you will only be in about 6m. I have never found an abundance of fish in close

Agree with GBC, but also found my best day ever was 300 metres off in a stiff offshore, but limit of snapper plus KY and Gurnard, always a hit and miss on the sand

That's a pretty good price for that package.

A pretty good package for the money and if you end up flicking it for an upgrade in the future then you should be able to sell it quite easily for the same money too :y:
