      1. Anyone know people or shops in Brisbane that make and weld on after market bow mount brackets/plates to aluminium boats? For Minn Kota, Watersnake, MotorGuide etc.. electric motors. I emailed Holt Marine as their website pictures this, but got no response. May call them later. Are there any others who provide this service in Brisbane? I would prefer a few quotes. Below is the sort of example I would prefer taken from the Internet. Needs paint though! Maybe even info on any bolt on solutions that look professional? My boat is a painted hull and 2014 model so I am not looking for quick and dodgy methods. Here is the front of my stessco. Any recommendations to get an electric motor on the front of this boat would be much appreciated!

        I just bought a 4 year old quintrex that has been in the water for the whole 4 years, I need to clean off the barnicles, I have tried using a presure cleaner (water blaster) with only half the problem fixed, there is some serious barnicles to remove. I am also still looking for an outboard 6 hp or less thats not too old and also a trailer to fit the tinny (3.7m) Any help would be appreciatted. Please does anybody have any ideas on how to remove the rest of the barnicles??
      3. Hi guys, Looking to buy a new boat (I am set on new, sorry) for around 20-30k mark, can push it to 35k This is our first boat ever and will mainly be used around Woy woy area/Taren point/brisbane waters. Main use of the boat will be for fishing but also for cruising and having a good time on the water I have narrowed it down to mainly 2 boats -quintrex fishabout 481 60hp - Quintrex cruiseabout 481 60hp or 75hp (the 75hp variant is pushing the limit cost wise, will there be a significant difference in 60hp vs 75hp? The problem is besides Quintrex and Stacer I'm not too sure what other brands I should be looking at and it's difficult to find dealers in NSW. Any other information would be greatly appreciated. When I do decide to purchase the boat is there any chance of negotiations on a boat or are boats usually quite fixed with pricing, should I ask for things to be thrown in?
      4. so i just got myself a little 18lb thrust watersnake for my kayak. setting it up today to take out tomorrow for a bit of a fish. can anyone give me advice on the battery size i willl need? i currently have a 40ah battery that i pulled out of my boat since its not going atm. how long will that give me on the water? should i invest in a bigger one? thanks in advance for your help
      5. Morning fellow AFOers, Just a quick thought. Many a first time boatie has left the ramp without knowing the ins and outs of their motor and ran into trouble out on the water. Having just purchased a boat myself, is there any tips the boaters from AFO could give to newcomers? Eg - Where to buy workshop manuals What a basic toolkit should contain Maintenance Etc. Any tips or helpful advice would be appreciated and put to good use Thanks Felix

      9. I have a 55lb minkota ipilot riptide....... the weekend just gone the steering decided not to work. I have narrowed it down to one of three things the remote is not transmitting however all features seem to work I can control speed and turn on spot lock etc so I suspect the remote is working. the second one is the receiver on the unit it self, and thirdly is the motor that drives the steering. Does anyone know where I can buy parts and most importantly a work shop manual so I can more acutely diagnose my problem....... or maybe even a website BLA don't seem to have a parts listing.............thanks in advance

        New Project Boat

        Hi guys, so last week I was driving by mudgeeraba to my inlaws....for my wife and inlaws to be shocked when I rolled on in with a not so nice surprise....a very very old Haines hunter v16, I saw a potential in this boat, I was wondering if anyone on here has any advice or ideas on how to turn it into a nice fishing boat.
      11. Hi everyone, I am going to invest in a decent solar panel for camping and got me thinking is it worth splashing out a little more and investing in a flexible marine grade one that I could also use to charge my leccy battery and mount it on my console. I know it wouldnt get full sun but figure i can rig it to trickle charge for those long trips I where I have no access to power. My outboard isnt big enough to charge both batteries so this is my next option Thoughts? Anyone done similar? Shane
      12. Does any body know much about 5hp merc four stokes there is one for sale up my way for $600 its got about 20hours on it and cosmetically it looks good.
      13. Informative video. Cheers Ray
      14. G'day lads, so I've finally managed to convince the boss (misses) to let me buy a boat her only rules are cheap and we can chuck it on the roof for when we go camping. I was was wondering if anyone has some advice or experience or knows somebody selling a topper. im currently limited to no longer than 3m and and could go around 1500 give or take a bit in width. Thanks a lot lads!

        Well i've gone and done it now. I bought a 14 foot center console with an old 35 Black Anchor... and I love it. Now all there is to do is put some casting platforms in, a sounder and an electric motor move the helm fix the lighting... and I would love some advice. I got her for a bargain price of $2,300 and the engine runs like a dream and it sits well in the water on and off the plane. But there are a few problems... but one big one. The helm is way too far forward, it makes for a very rough ride and looks and feels very strange. When they pushed it forward (i am assuming they did it because the floor had rotten out (its fairly new and yes i know that the gal fixings must come out) and not to fix a weight distribution problem...??) it has meant that control cables are too short and they have mounted the throttle too low. I would like to move it back a bit and build a front casting platform for storage and a back one for bait tank, fuel storage and a kill tank. So first job I want to do is put on a sounder and an electric motor. The guy at Boating and RV in Tingalpa has sold me on a; Motor Guide Xi5-55W 60" 12v GPS ($2,349 inc.) and an Elite 7Ti Total Scan Navionics ($1,099 inc.) So my first question is; are they ok? Second question is how should I mount the Electric outboard? The prow is quite high. Can I build up some nylon cutting board type material and simply bolt it to the gunwale and the front anchor well cover? I don't really know how much strength it needs. Thanks oh and a little by note. I will be fishing from her over the new years period up at Noosa.
      16. Anyone know where I can find one? Recently purchased boat with this on the back. Would like to do some basic maintenance myself. Thanks

        Hi guys, Just looking for opinions on jarvis water snakes ? I see theres a mk II version now too? Cheers
      18. Just wanted to give a bit of praise to bundall marine I bought my boat and motor new from these guys in February and they have taken really good care of me from the time I first called. Andrew is a legend and will help you with whatever he can. Had my 3 month service on my outboard today and ahain went the extra mile in greasing everything on my trailer and replacing the bearing buddy cap I was missing and helping me with my electric motor set up. If anyone is looking for a new boat or motor I'd recommend them.
      19. Hi all, got to the ramp yesterday and doing final checks in the rigging area I noticed that the fuel line was split between the outboard connection and the primer bulb. Probably got pinched in the outboard mounting hardware when I was raising or lowering the motor. Managed a temporary repair with some electrical tape so could still have a day on the water. Obviously I need to fix this properly, but I was thinking of replacing the whole fuel line and fittings, given the gear is now 9 years old. The tinnie has the tank in a forward hatch and the fuel line runs under the floor. Anyone replaced this before? I thought I should be able to do it if I cable tie the old connector at the tank end to the new connector for the outboard and and then pull the old line out from the outboard end. This would save me having to lift the floor, but not sure if the cavity is clear enough to allow the connectors and the primer bulb through. Boat is a 4.35 Sea Jay Territory with a 40 yammie 2 stroke. Any advice welcome. Cheers, Steve.
      20. Hello all. I've looking at boats and kayaks (when I get enough cash for a deposit) lately to progress my fishing and get to spots where shorebased fishos can't as well as covering more water. And I like the look of the quintrex explorer 320 matched with a 4stroke 5hp outboard (Suzuki on a particular online package) and a trailer all in one package. And was wondering has any had experience with these rather small tinnies (if I got one it would only be me, fishing gear, small esky on board) and if they may be suited for a beggineer boatie fishing the saltwater creeks and rivers in SEQ. Thanks any feedback would be appreciated
      21. hey guys anyone know of a good mobile outboard mech on the southside,i have used john eddie but cant find his number,thanks brad
      22. G'day guys I've got a problem with my Suzuki outboard (2012 DT40W) that I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction on. I replaced most of the normal service items, gear oil, spark plugs, fuel filter, impeller etc about 1-2 months ago Since then I've taken it out a few times, and everything seemed to be running fine. That was until I was on my way back in from Mooloolaba and I ran one of the fuel tanks dry. I hooked up the other tank, and fired her up but started having issues at idle/low rpm when in gear (R or F doesn't seem to make a difference). Any sort of get-up-and-go throttle and it seems to thump along normally. Not sure how to describe it, but the motor periodically feels like it loses power, and then gives a squeal before running normally again. Sometimes it'll happen in rapid succession, others not so. I've put up a little vid showing it Since the first appearance of this issue I took it out with a fresh batch of fuel to see if it was related. Whilst I don't recall any issues when heading out from the ramp, it did start happening again after cruising around for a bit. Also concerned it may sound a little rougher at idle/low rpm - but not sure if that's just paranoia Motor seems to run fine when back at home flushing the passages out. Video: Any ideas? PS: I don't normally have that red safety cord hanging over the transom
      23. Gday to you all. I have a 1988 model Johnson outboard motor that I purchased recently off an old guy that told me it was a FOUR STROKE MOTOR. The model number he gave me is A J25 RACCA. I looked it up & it would seem that is correct. Australian, 25 hp, Rope start, 1988 model. Obviously I don't know a great deal about outboard motors, but have a fair understanding about engines in general. So basically I don't know weather to mix four stroke oil into the fuel, or 2 stroke oil into the fuel. It DOESN'T have an oil sump. I haven't heard of mixing four stroke oil into fuel before but have mixed plenty in the past for my mower etc. Either way, all I need to know is if this is actually a 2 STROKE MOTOR, or IS IT A FOUR STROKE MOTOR?? Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance for anyone who can definitely tell me. Cheers.
      24. Hi all. Just wondering if anyone uses or has thought of using that salt-away product i remember seeing it some time ago at the boat show. Cheers guys
