    Tinny Search

    Why does everybody always say - ’The downside is, it has a two stroke’ I’m sure that several years ago boaters didn’t walk around saying ‘oh I wish someone would invent 4 stroke outboards cause I dislike 2 strokes. They are and always will be a good motor - yes more fuel but that has always been the same. Just my thoughts

    AFO Stickers

    How much interest would be needed to make it worthwhile. Perhaps you could put out a general post asking s king who would be interested and how many stickers they want. Get a price, back to the people and if still interested request upfront payment I’d be happy to do it, but I’m not well known and I’m not sure the followers would send me money.

    Life Jackets

    Thanks for all the tips and advice. As my jackets are brand new I have decided to self service again on this occasion and look into having them checked by professionals in the winter. one of my jackets went off in the boat so a new mechanism was called for. FYI if you are looking for any cylinders or auto triggers I found the below to be the cheapest. they are a massive sports store next to IKEA at Tempe/Sydenham, NSW

    Life Jackets

    Thanks Old Scaley just manufacturers recommendation the jacket are like brand new. The cylinders are all okay by weight. No fading, no fraying everything good. I think I’ll do like you and self service and plead ignorant if questioned

    Life Jackets

    To cut a long story short, I purchased four new life jackets from the RMS (NSW) when they had their trade your old in for New about four years ago. they now require servicing by a professional and I’m finding it very hard to find someone to service this brand (ULTRA). I’m now thinking of replacing them altogether with a brand that I will not find hard to get serviced by a professional. I’ve done the annual servicing but I thought I could do it for five years and I now find you can only service this brand for three years. What auto inflatable brands are people using that you would recommend I fish off shore and looking for at least 150N’s suggestions or recommendations please
  8. What polish and or wax did you use to get this looking so good

    Boat Insurance

    A little late, but I am sure NRMA allow you to nominate periods of non use giving you a lower premium.
  11. From what I’ve been able to read - the SR17 hull weight is around 570kgs. That is bare hull only. Ad motor, trailer, fit out, fuel, water, fishing gear etc. I think you might be a little undersized in the vehicle department. Cheers Hope that helps a little.

    Sunken Boat

    I didn’t even know there was one there. When did that occur
  13. Happy New Year to all I have a Live Fibre Overhead Rod (RLFTX16) 10 - 15 kg rated there are some specials running at the moment and I would like some input what would be a good reel to suit this rod. I will be using it to do some light trolling, some live baiting and some occasional bottom bashing. I had done some researching and have been thinking of a Shimano Tyrnos 16 or the Simano Talica 16 Some suggestions would be nice. One further question - is a two speed needed ? thanks
