  1. Fuel Flow/usage Meter

    That sounds good Ty, I'll have to do this one day.
  2. Fuel Flow/usage Meter

    I have never trusted boat fuel gauges. I don't have a flow meter, but if accurate they would be a worth while investment if you have to remember to reset it on your GPS every time you fill up. They would be good to see what the most economical rev range to sit on would be. I simply go out and drive the boat as I normally would in all different conditions and setting a trip log before each trip. Start with a full tank of fuel, then at the end of the day refill the tank divided the km's traveled by the liters used. Over 4 or so trips in various conditions it becomes easy to average fuel usage. For my boat I get so very close to 1km per litre. It's close enough for me and i can estimate long trips and touch wood I have not ran out of fuel using this method.
  3. You could get twice that much Sam, just put another Gobblers sticker on it it's perfect for what you bought it for and you had some great times and experiences in it. Some fond memories, remember that time you and Skeggzie were dripping wet in the storm, beaching the boat at Fraser, cuddling under an emergency blanket sharing body heat nipple to nipple. Bet you will miss that.
  4. No arm wrestle required. I think Sam has was sick of catching all the fish and sharing half with me. (Luke hasn't worked it out yet ) Don't say anything.

  7. Bait Tank Plumbing

    How many days and minutes till the new one arrives @Drop Bear?
  8. Bait Tank Plumbing

    If possible the best place to put would be in the bottom of the tank and use a right angle skin fitting. Usually one of the corners holds the last bit of water so placing it in that corner will help keep it dry and smell free. If you go straight into the side the tank it will not fully drain and always have some smelly water in it. Then run a hose out to the transome below tanks lowest water level. A live bait tank can be so handy especially if you don't carry ice. Keeps your catch of Flathead etc alive till you get home.

    Having the check valve is a good idea, I would leave it there. Can you put a drain drain plug out the back ? Either above the boarding platform or under it, if the tank is deeper than the platform.

    They certainly look to be enjoying themselves.

  14. northern nsw Overnight Kayak Trip - Bass

    Very good Steve, Tip take me with you to help film.
  15. SOLD. I have been mulling over the decision on whether or not sell my FCV585 for a couple of months. I finally bit the bullet and after careful consideration I bought the FCV588 over the Simrad S2009. So I am now definitely selling the 585. It does have some delamination around the edges as you can see in the photos and it was this way when I bought the boat. It has not got any worse since I've owned it and you can still easily read the sounder no problems. It is the head unit only as I'm keeping the P66 transducer. It is still installed in the boat ATM, but I will be taking it out over this weekend to install the 588. The good thing is that I can show it working in demo mode because the plugs are identical for both units. Manufactured 2011 see ID sticker. I'm located near Samford Valley 4520 QLD $900
