      2. Stuff For Wheel Studs?

        So I have ordered a new trailer to replace my aging redco. I can't remember the name of the stuff you put on the wheel studs to stop them locking on. I have been lucky to never have to change a trailer wheel on the side of the road but if I did have to I know there is no way I could undo the wheel nuts. Every time I have replaced the bearings I have had to take the trailer to the local mechanic to get the rattle gun onto them. So this time I want to make sure I could get the nuts undone on my own. What is that stuff called?
      3. TENS of thousands of gun-toting Americans have joined a Facebook campaign to shoot down Hurricane Irma when it hits Florida. They’ve vowed to tackle the 185mp/h (297km/h) hurricane by showing deadly Irma that “in Florida we shoot first” probably a good thing, it will keep them out of emergency shelters and those in emergency shelters safe from them and start Natural Selection as favourite.

      5. Louie The Lip Pic Added

        Well I finally got my bottom lip (face ) done yesterday and feeling fairly good this morning. Not so yesterday though, firstly they had to wash my lip, then attack it with rough guaze, then wipe it again, then apply a cream, cover it with glad wrap and tape, then I had to wait for 3 hours for the cream to work. Next they wiped it over again and I had 5 injections, one each side and 3 crossways in my lip, boy did it hurt, meantime I am thinking to myself well thats the pain bit over I shouldnt feel to much from here, boy was I wrong. Next up was the burning light that moved across my lip from side to side slowly, honestly its like being torched the pain is excruciating, this goes for 8 minutes. After you think you are being real brave gritting your teeth and clenching your hands and thinking to yourself only a few more seconds, the lovely girl says to you, well done Dennis only 5 mins and 20 seconds to go and you just surrender to the pain and think about your next fishing session and about buying that shovel to help put the sunscreen on. I hope this has encouraged the young ones to cover up and where broard brim hats or neck socks as I would hate for you to go through this. Dino

      7. Sun Glasses

        I have used Spotters sunglasses for many years. Recently I purchased the same model I normally buy online. Unfortunately when the new model has arrived it has changed and I don't like the new arms and change of the lense size etc. I have donated them to the boys and decided to buy a pair of Costa sunglasses that people were recommending. I bought the fantail model with green mirror finish with copper base high contrasting lenses. I was surprised by the comfort and the fit. Has any body got first hand experience with Costa's? I'll up date my experience after using them for a while.

      14. Deckie Spot Thursday 22/6

        I have decided that im going to go for a fish thursday morning chasing flathead. (It gets boring going out by yourself so i wouldn't mind some company.) I would leave mine at 5am and be at the ramp by 5.30. Can either meet at mine and i can drive out or meet at the ramp. I dont want fuel money or help cleaning the boat just bring your own fishing gear, food and drinks. Depending on how the fish are biting as to how long i stay out but will definitely be back at the ramp by 12.30 at the latest. If your keen and interested then let me know. Cheers josh

      17. Copy of email fromSEQ water. Cheers Ray Latest news Work is well underway to finalise the detailed design for the Sideling Creek Dam upgrade with construction planning starting later this year. The upgrade is expected to kick off in mid-2018, subject to Seqwater gaining the necessary project approvals, and will involve strengthening the main dam embankment (pictured right) and spillway to meet the Queensland Dam Safety Guidelines. We will be going out to market early next year to appoint a contractor to manage construction. We expect the upgrade will take about 12 months to complete, subject to weather conditions and other unforeseen delays. What is detailed design? Once we have approval to proceed with our preferred option, we can start designing the upgrade ready for construction. The detailed design phase involves finalising the size and shape of the improvements to be made, working out what materials we will need and in what order we will do the work. While the preliminary design gives us a broad idea of what we’re building, the detailed design provides all the information we need to allow our contractor to get to work. This phase of the project also involves safety and environmental assessments. We will provide more information about the design as planning progresses. The spillway In 2015, a slot (pictured right) was cut in the dam’s spillway to lower the water level while detailed investigations were conducted to help us identify options for upgrading the dam. Lowering water levels is an industry accepted practice and helps to reduce water pressure and loads on the dam as well as increase the flood capacity. Once we’ve upgraded the dam, we will be reinstating the spillway and filling in the slot to allow the dam to be restored to its original full supply level. We will also be refurbishing the area below the spillway to help manage erosion and improve fish migration downstream. Keeping you informed We will be sending regular e-updates during the planning stage of this project to keep you informed. This is the best way for you to get the latest information, so if you know someone who might be interested in this project encourage them to subscribe too. In other news... Future recreation changes Changes are happening at both Lake Kurwongbah and its neighbour Lake Samsonvale to improve access opportunities for recreation following a landmark water quality study. Last year, we announced we would be opening Lake Samsonvale to the public for paddle craft for the first time, as well as revising the current shared recreation arrangement on Lake Kurwongbah to allow public rowing, paddling and club skiing on the lake, seven days a week. Planning is currently in progress to introduce these changes at both lakes. We will continue to talk to key stakeholders throughout the planning process.

      19. Marine Mechanic

        Hi guys unsure on where to post this. my father in law is in the process of starting his own business as a mobile marine mechanic, obviously there are a few fisho's on here that own boats, if anyone is chasing a marine mechanic for both services and engine issues please feel free to message me. I will make sure you all get a discounted price. Thanks, Danny
      20. Ray put me on to some batteries at the right price. Not quite the size I was after but near enough, particularly for the price! 120 amp/hour AGM's. 133's would have been nice, but as I said, close enough! $700 bucks for 4 of these babies, now sitting in the boat, going in over the weekend. Was expecting to have to pay at least $1100 for what I needed..
      21. Sailor Knocked Out A SELF-styled Captain Cook who set sail from Darwin to Madagascar for “logical” reasons had his high seas adventure cut short after knocking himself out just 65km off the coast of Darwin. Darwin man Paul Hubicka, 73, had to be flown from his boat on Friday afternoon after his EPIRB device alerted rescue co-ordinators that he was in distress. NT Police said the salty sea dog had encountered inclement weather shortly after embarking on the grand voyage to Africa and was hit on the head by the boom of the vessel. “He was knocked unconscious and crashed against the vessel hull,” said Duty Supt Rob Burgoyne. After a coast watch plane could not contact Mr Hubicka, “a complex rescue operation ensued”, Mr Burgoyne said. A paramedic was eventually lowered by a helicopter in strong winds to rescue the wayward sailor. Mr Hubicka was taken to RDH for treatment and discharged yesterday with minor injuries. The Darwin adventurer could not be contacted yesterday but told the NT News last July about his planned 8800km journey to Madagascar, years in the making. “I used to live there and have friends there and it’s the logical place to go from Darwin,” he said at the time. Mr Hubicka spent more than two years building the 4.5m metal vessel based on a life raft design, named Dardie. He was testing the vessel to see if it even floated last July with hopes of leaving then but the voyage was postponed until he started on Friday. Police said Dardie was still adrift. I can only imagine he remembered the canned chicken but not the duck.
      22. Lance (ausiie123) goes in to hospital today to have a major operation to keep his heart going i wish him all the best to pull through this very critical procedure he is in the PA hospital for this. This is very serious as his health has declined over the last 12 months or so and i hope he has a speedy recovery as there is much more fishing for this old salt get well soon old mate.
      23. Wanted - Loan Kayak

        Hi all, might be a long shot but thought I'd throw it out there. I'm heading over to moreton next week and was wondering if anyone had a kayak sitting around collecting dust that I may be able to borrow for a week. Happy to work with the beer economy or similar as recompense. Only requirement would be that it floats, can hold a larger adult and preferably has a rod holder. Can pick up anywhere in the Brisbane area. thanks in advance. cheers benno
