Still 2020 so for 2021 we can keep it short…..Predator Battle Ireland OPEN to enter for 2021! Of course we will have that great first prize The Alumacraft Escape 165 tiller with a 50hp Suzuki on it and a great boat needs a great boat trailer so that will be a Kalftrailer Alumacraft Special tailor made for this boat.
Never easy to say goodbye to a boat combination like this, Alumacraft Escape 165 tiller with a Suzuki 50hp on it a new brand boat trailer from “Kalf Trailers” the Alumacraft special R750-57, but this team fought hard for it!
Before the guys arrived we had the boat ready for them and the weather helped big time for the photos! So we could explain some things before using it, told them to take time to investigated all buttons and possibilities.
First something about the new brand trailer from Kalf trailers. Alumacraft Europe wanted a boat trailer tailor made for their boats and that worked out very nice! To be honest… I am very surprised by those Kalf trailers they really know what they are doing (making), eye for details for sure!
Definitely not someone who saws tube profiles in a garage and then welds them together! I had a welding and construction company myself for many years so I know where I’m talking about. I see laser cut mounting plates, I don’t see any sharp corners that can tear, etc. I see an eye for details….. have a look yourself 😊
The Alumacraft Escape 165 with the Suzuki 50hp…wow what can I say for that price!! 😊 The winners of last year kept the boat as well and fished the 2020 competition with it so I kept an eye open for that boat. What can I say…I want one myself haha, no really no bullshit sponsor kiss ass story or whatsoever, the performance of that boat on a big lake like Lough Derg….bring it on!
Competitions…what can I say? Just to keep it short…. I am very happy again that the winners of 2020 keep the boat 😊 So each year we see more and more Alumacraft boats on the Irish waters!
The entire organization is, just like all previous times, completely in the hands of “Herman Molenaar” better known as fisHerman. www.fisherman.nl“Pike Fishing Holidays in Ireland”
After the boat check in Killaloe we all feel a bit better, participants are chill we did our work so all ready for day 2. It is always a bit a nervous moment of the day, launch your boat, be on time, did I bring all my gear! Day 2 a windy one is that good or bad? Bad for smaller boats and better for the bigger ones?
