    Fishing Boat Within 10k

    @Junky has generously provided lots of valuable information and there is not much more that l could add. Once you decide on a boat you may wish to purchase you can employ a mobile marine mechanic or a boat inspection company that can provide you a report on the condition of the hull and motor. Similar to a car inspection check. With it being your first boat this would be worth while investment IMO. I have had 8 or so boats and still had l had a check done on boat l have currently.

    Bi-focals for sunglasses cheap fix.

    They were a good life hack. I did loose one eventually though when in rough weather l got soaked through. Because there was no glue the water got on to inside of the lenses and allowed them to lift off and l lost one. I now have a few sets of reading glasses so l just keep one spare set in the boat.

    Better to be doing them at home with all the tools and the cold drink. Far better than spoiling a trip and sweating on the side of the road. No doubt you will see every holiday period where the boat has not been used for sometime and their they are on the side of the road.

    If they a round or square axles and the dimension of the axle. The guys just down the road from you couple mate can give you all the advice you will need. Or look up your trailer brand and specs and that shouldl tell you. Main thing is that you use good quality grease. I prefer to use Jap bearing but Chinese are fine if you do them yearly and use good a wheel bearing grease. Couplemate should have everything you need.

    I do mine every 12 moths for sure. Since doing that I haven't had a problem. (Of course with the exception of earlier in the year when DJS mobile trailer repairs let me down twice which resulted in the bearing failure)

    You can do just the basics, keep on top of trailer bearings and brakes most importantly. Remember the fish can't see what your fishing out of. I just enjoy getting the boat to look the best it can for my own satisfaction.

    What The?

    The car was out of gear and would not go into gear because of the broken clutch cable. So rather than mucking around with it, a short tow was the preferred to get it to a mechanic.

    What The?

    I remember those days too. Lucky in this case that brakes, steering and everything else was fine just not clutch to select a gear. Supercheap wanted $70 for a tow rope my wife said. So this was a bargain.

    What The?

    I guess it a liability thing. If some thing happens they're not responsible because they said not to use it. The instructions look like more for a tow recovery from a bog etc. that would place far more force than rolling a car along a road. I call B%llSht

    What The?

    My sons Suzki Vitara did a clutch cable the other day and he wanted me to tow it to the mechanics where he was also getting the fuel pump replaced. I went to Bunnings and bought a tow strap. See below image. It's not a very heavy car and we didn't have to travel far on a fairly straight back road. So for a short distance I thought this would do the job and only $20 bucks. Well it turns out that a towing strap is not recommended for conventional towing!!! What the?? See note 5 down. Well I'm happy to report the tow went fine and now I feel like a rebel.

    south queensland First Time Shark Fishing!

    It's so good you got out to experience some local fishing. A shark that size should be perfect for eating. Well done @ Drop bear.

    I told Fastway customer support that, the courier who wouldn’t answer his phone, who didn’t scan the parcel into the depot or out of the depot is not a courier. He’s just a guy that does not follow procedures and delivers stuff if and when he feels like it. He should be sacked. Then they rung me again to follow up a week later to see if l finally received the goods and l told the same story to the same person, who rang a week earlier. Talk about hopeless.
