It's A Long Time Since I Used This Forum Category

Recommended Posts

I had a gas fridge for camping sent to me with a delivery date estimated to be 28 April by Toll. They suffered a Ransomware attack on their system and lost it. It still hasn't shown up. Luckily the vendor was very good about it and sent me another one via TNT that showed up after a few days. It was my highest value item I had purchased on-line so I was quite concerned at the time. The vendor still hasn't received the item back.

Hi ellicat

Well that is a bugger, is Australia Post going to give you a refund (I assume so)? 

Cheers Hamish

IF it is via ebay you are ok different story if you have purchased directly then the seller has to make a claim on  his carrier ( providing he has insurance) and if seller is an a/hole you have to wait till seller gets insurance back.

Well, I got the electric winch the week before last and installed it. Wow, so easy and probably no slower than me winching manually. Very happy. Thanks again for the help on choosing it @rayke1938 and @aussie123.

Also installed a new livewell supplied by @aussie123 / www.reeltackle.com.au

It came up very nicely. Got it installed this week. Again, very happy and can now accommodate a few more rods and can keep them out of the way.

Just waiting on a bracket to show up so I can plumb it with bilge pump etc.

That looks awesome Brian.

Good to see that you got the rod holder spacings correct, so many people miss it by this <-> much, lol.

As soon as those brackets come back into stock, I will shoot one straight over to you.

It's a very snug fit, Lance, which is good so it won't vibrate.

I found the best way for me to install it was to take it to the pros at Coorparoo Marine. A lot less swearing as well. haha

Yes well that saves you stuffing the measurements up,lol.

Iv'e had at least half a dozen customers fit their rod holders at incorrect spacings now and the only way around it is to move the rod holders or build them a new board with leg spacings that fit their rod holders which costs them a lot more in the long run as it becomes a custom build.

So far only 1 guy has tried to blame me for his board not fitting his rod holders that he fitted himself, lol

I had one put in a month ago.... but only for charging things.

I've been on the Nicorettes, @rayke1938 and can go about half a winters day without a dart, using them.

The Nicorettes work for me. Have for the last twenty-five years. Now if I could just give up the nicorettes!

Hi ellicat

Now, that looks great. I love the new livie tank.

I'm sure the livies you get will be ripper bait. Anything live seems to work better! 

Cheers Hamish
