  1. Impressed with Benno's stability in water footage.
  2. Benno sent me some of his footage and I had some above water stuff that I have combined to do another smaller clip of the whale shark. I always have trouble matching music to videos and this was no exception. Benno's choice was sweet but, just using free download songs it's hard to find much I like. I just had enough and picked one.

    Lure Or Jig Head Protection When Travelling

    A velcro rod wrap would do the job and it's re useable.
  4. They will catch you way more prawns to if you stay over the school when other boats drift off them.

    south queensland Offshore With Luvit In Luv-it

    We were trolling for Wahoo at 12 knots. The spanish was a welcome by catch. 4 x Mac tuna and a tuskie made up the balance of the esky.

    south queensland The Pine Fishing (prawning Report)

    I never left my pots when crabbing and never had one stolen. At $65 ach l think l paid l wasn’t taking any chances. Of course you can leave them overnight but l found that if the crabs are on. 1-2 hours was enough time for them to find their way into the pot. Remove them and reset the pot. If serious l would crab right through the night till morning.

    south queensland The Pine Fishing (prawning Report)

    So good Poddy. They are such a versatile boat you can do just about anything if you pick your weather. I use to head to the Pine before work and drop 4 crab pots in, then prawn in the same area. Came home a few times with a legal muddy and few kgs of prawns. Brilliant to live in QLD.
  10. Saturday weather is too good to pass up. Do you want go with me?

    Yes I will enjoy it even more when it's finished. I have learnt a lot along the way and hope that by posting its progress that AFO members can put the information to good use, if they undertake anything like this in the future. Spoke with a boat builder today and some of the things I was concerned about are not an issue which puts my mind at rest. Now that I have it at a stage that I can continue to use it and work on it inbetween is great. I expect to have it a long time so I might as well have it the way I want. If circumstances change I it has to go, then the work should have improved the value a little. I know I'll never buy a trailer boat with bottom paint on it again.

    I had the motor cowl resprayed. It's not a perfect paint match but that's hard to do with the motor being nearly 15 years old. The guy did great paint job on it though. The better it looks the faster it goes.
