Quintrex F481 Hornet with 90 ETEC Testimonial
First of all I would like to say thanks to Blake and his staff from Hunts Marine of Wollongong, your knowledge and support both at your shop as well as the boat show was great to say the least. The F481 Hornet stood up to all expectation I was after and more, the handling in and out of the water with the new trailer was brilliant, the boat was set up exactly as I asked. The towing of the boat was better than I expected, highway speed was as though it wasn't even on the back.
I had a chance to get it in the water on the afternoon of pick up, I went straight to St George's Basin NSW and with only one push it slid off the trailer without any problems at all. At speed it handled superbly, after you alter the trim it even went better. On return I drove it straight on and just lent over the front and secured it to the trailer then drove out without any issues. (Blake told me you can just drive it on and off and he was right, it's great).
The motor started up first go and people on the wharf thought it was a 4 stroke and were very surprised to find out it was a 2 stroke. The 90HP ETEC has pleanty of grunt for this boat.
I would have no hesitation at all to recommend Hunts Marine to anyone. Lots of fun to come. Thanks Blake. Regards,
