Nugget unveils a gem

Honda Australia has teamed up with Queensland fishing identity, Dave “Nugget” Downie, to put together his latest project boat. 

Unveiled recently at Brisbane’s Northside Marine, the attention-grabbing Honda BF150-powered fibreglass vessel will get Queenslanders talking as the features and benefits of the customised rig are discussed each weekend on Nugget’s top-rating 4BC radio program, Talking Fishing.

Nugget said he couldn’t wait to get his new boat on the water and put it through its paces.

“The hull is actually 16 years old, but we totally gutted and reinforced it then added custom storage areas like live bait tanks, kill tanks and other functional features.” 

“Set-up with everything I need for my fishing interests, the powerful and reliable Honda BF150 was the only outboard choice, as far as I was concerned – nothing else came close.”

Based on the same engine that powers the globally-popular Honda Accord, the BF150 incorporates a unique set of Honda-exclusive technologies to provide increased power across the entire rev range, with a power-to-weight ratio to rival two-stroke engines in the same class.
