  1. Fuel Flow/usage Meter

    I have a Suzi digital gauge that displays fuel usage data....total used, average, litres per km etc. only problem is when I fill up the pump tells me a different story than the gauge. I fill up at the same pump every time at the marina as the boats in storage, just have to figure out now which ones wrong.
  2. south queensland Wind,wind And More Wind

    Very common to get northerlies from sept onwards then there seems to be a shift to SE round Christmas ish. Spring is probably the windiest time of the year here imo.
  3. Snapper Fishing Set Up

    Are you wanting to use the rod for plastics or bait? In the bay or offshore?
  4. fishing Small Lies

    It can be a pain setting them up! I spent months playing with my last transducer before getting it right......or as right as its gonna be. I sprung for a thru hull on the current boat and I must say its been awesome so far.
  5. fishing Small Lies

    Looks like it's in the ballpark. Have you tried a bit lower? -5mm.....even a bit more?
  6. fishing Small Lies

    You mention 5mm below the hull on the motor side? Is that to the tail of the transducer or the leading edge? Transducer pics are always tough hey!
  7. New Battery Needed

    After doing a fair bit of research lately I ended up getting a Super Charge MFM70 (cca720) from Wynumm Batteries for $169.
  8. Question On Navionics

    Interested in this also.
  9. show off ur boat

    Had her for a bit over 3yrs and about to move on, Can't wait for the new boat but will be a little sad when shes not in my garage anymore!
  10. This Is Commitment

    Awesome..... love them!
  11. Gold Coast Fisho

    I think it's all too easy to get the wrong impression sometimes off social media. Every "gun" fisho I've met has been extremely dedicated to doing what they love to do and I'm sure all the trophy fish they post have countless hours invested into the capture. The old adage of 'time on the water' is often bantied about but is so true, enjoy the process, keep your eyes peeled and fish actively, you may get close a few times and lose but when that fish you've been chasing so long hits the deck everything you've done leading up to that point in time will be so worth it!
  12. Dc To Dc Charger For Minn Kota?

    Hmmm looks like only a partial solution. I currently have a Ctek MXT14 also that I use at home, I guess I'll have to talk to the marina and see how I can go about charging the batteries on AC. This is the DC to DC charger I was looking at.... https://www.keoghsmarine.com.au/Sterling-BBW1224-12Volt- DC-to-24Volt-DC-On-Board-Waterproof-Battery-Charger-Charge-your-Electric-Bow-Mount-Trolling-Motor-Minkota-Motorguide-24V-Battery-Whilst-the-Engine-is-Running What make/model did you have Luvit?
  13. Anyone got any experience with using DC to DC chargers to charge their 24V trolling motors. I'm getting a new rig towards the middle of the year that will be getting dry stored and will be difficult to hook up to a charger and I am looking to these chargers as a possible solution. I'm getting the new rig to do a bit more exploring further afield and expect ill be doing longer runs approx 1hr each way and much more minimal electric usage than I do now. Boat will be powered by a 140 suzi. Anyone given this a crack?
