Paul bought a ticket to the show for his Dad and, as he was looking at getting himself a boat, bought one for himself, too. Because he had bought his ticket online, he received a free bonus entry into the Grand Prize draw and, as was the case with the winner of the 2019 Grand Prize, Eden Waddington, it was that bonus ticket that won him the $250,000 Grand Prize!
Paul, a mad-keen fisherman, says the prize boat, a Surtees 7.5 Game Fisher Enclosed Cabin, powered by Yamaha F250 XCA four-stroke outboard and fitted with a Yamaha Helm Master EX boat control system, Hosking custom tandem braked trailer, comprehensive Garmin electronics package and much more, will get plenty of use. It will live half the year in Hamilton and the other half on the Coromandel.
So people can follow him and his adventures, Paul has created an Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/50buk_fisho/.
