Club Marine contributor John Willis tests the new Surtees 540 Workmate Hardtop in Eden, NSW. This model is powered by an 80HP Honda outboard and fitted with all the features Surtees are known for including a flooding keel, wide gunwales. John reckons the colour and hardtop are a hit!

Club Marine contributor John Willis heads to Eden, New South Wales. It’s one of his favourite places! John checks out the facilities for trailerboaters, species to catch and local attractions for the family including whale watching aboard Cat Balou cruisers and visiting the old Davidson whaling station. Of course an Eden trip wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Killer Whale Museum.
