  1. Geez, only 6:18am and already I've learnt enough for 5 days. What a great thread. Be interested to see the results reg the age. Never eaten hussar, always traded them in but that one would yeald some nice fillets. That Moses looks like a beast. I wouldn't have let out the camera trick secret.
  2. Ha. I reckon I saw that bloke at the golf coarse the other day. https://youtu.be/BvlW5TL6gPk
  3. There is a major water entry problem. Not sure on exact details, they're keeping it very hush hush.
  4. Bilge pump outlet???
  5. Hehe. See him lift his feet up into the foot wells....then consider his situation and realise that lifting his feet won't help much anyway. Natang.....I have a 5m+ tiger shark friend up at Fraser that swims up and says hello sometimes. They are so cool yo see when that big. They won't hurt you, although the first time I saw him the heart skipped a beat or 2 but it was more a surprise than panic. As drop bear said....did you get any doggies?
  6. Believe it or not this was caloundra bar a few years back. My mate snapped this while paddling out.
  7. Keep an eye on the wave rider over Saturday. Should get some cracker sets coming through. Wave rider Oct last year saw some good waves.
  8. You're bloody crazy mad. Do you get dugong down that way? Looked like a dugong head...maybe. And what are you tied off to at the start? Can see the water flowing under your feet.
  9. None. I have a hardtop to hide under... In the old open vessel I'd use banana boat, orange squeeze tube or they do a roll on too. Use disposable gloves if you have the squeeze tube. They also have zinc sticks. The cancer council stuff used to burn me more than if I didn't have it on. Got a good treatment for skin cancer too. Not approved by any doctors etc but they know it works, and it gets the whole lot too.
  10. Ahh, the joys of glass boats. Firstly Whitworth's are correct. Flow coat is what you need to use for patch repairs. It has a wax in it that will seal it from the outside air and allow it to dry hard. Gelcoat will not set if exposed to air hence it is the first layer used in a mould, and my bet is that in the vids using gelcoat they would use some kind of wrap to seal it such as glad wrap or similar over the top of their gelcoat repairs to protect it from the outside air. As for the repair post up some pics. Sounds like your repaired section is low. This is why your sanding the outside edges away before your repaired section. Spraying flowcoat obviously gives a much better finish. Even a sponge will give a better finish than a brush. Sanding is a tedious task. Have a look at what Luvit has gone through to remove old antifoul in his boat repair thread. Sanding takes time. If you rush it you will end up with a mess. Take your time. Otherwise just apply the flowcoat and go fishing. Then come home and sand it. If you need another coat of flowcoat be sure to sand the original coat so as to remove the wax otherwise the new coat will not bond. Get some pics up so we can see what's going on.

    Dakar 2019

    This is what Australian currency should look like. Oh...and there is a petition going around for recognition of Toby's efforts if you have a spare 5 minutes. https://www.change.org/p/queensland-sports-minister-dakar-rally-winner-toby-price-deserves-a-major-sports-honour/w?source_location=psf_petitions Cheers.
  13. Here you go bro... https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/906738-gas-tank-calibration-yami-6yc-gauge.html My merc guage works very well. It tells me pretty much to the 100ml how much I've used and the guage reflects that reading. It was calibrated when I fitted it all though.
  14. Sounds like you have to recalibrate your sender to the new Guage. That would be my guess as to your problem. I have no first hand experience with yami gauges, only merc. It will no doubt be a pain in the rear as it is normally done with an empty tank as you fill up. There will be a fuel calibration setting in the menu somewhere. Or pull the sender out of the tank and do a manual calibration.

    Dakar 2019

    An Australian motorcycle rider by the name of Toby Price has just won the Dakar again. He entered the race with a broken right wrist and managed to stay with the leaders till the end and come away with the first place crown. The Australian Animal is what he is now known as and I think it fits him perfect. What an amazing effort and congratulations to Toby. I have had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back and he has to be one of the nicest blokes in Australian sport. Nothing like those rediculous spoilt brat tennis players. Toby deserves the recognition of a true champion. Yeehaaaaa.
