    Default Bait boat advice

    Afternoon chaps, I never thought I`d ever be posting this but I`m in a position where I might be in the market for a BB to use for one week per year whilst fishing in France, as I have absolutely zero knowledge of such things any advice would be great...I`m looking for a cheap reliable and simple to use boat and happy to go down the secondhand route as I think this will be the cheapest option......any help would be gratefully received

    I would suggest a prop over jets for speed and battery life.

    Waverunners allow you access to the inside which is handy.

    Toby, if you can get yourself to kent you are welcome to borrow mine, I got a Waverunner earlier this year for a water where they dominated but can't bring myself to use it, I won't sell but I won't miss it for a couple of weeks.

    Rog that’s very kind of you, to be honest I can’t use one on my water in Chichester and I only go to France on a yearly basis so spending silly money would be fairly pointless, a local company (MJL Tackle) rent them out for about 100-120 for a week but for the price of 3 weeks rental I could grab a cheap second hand one.....decisions decisions. Just out of interest what do you make of the WR?

    Mine is an atom, with spare batteries etc. Your call and your welcome but do think they can be a 5 min wonder so investing even low money means it may rot in the shed!
