  8. Haven't watched a footy game for quite some time, is Grahame Eddy still playing full back. I hope Bob Fulton is not still flapping his legs about like a demented duck trying to milk a penalty. Go Melbourne
  9. And if you wear glasses You can get slip-overs in Polaroids, if you wear prescriptions glasses, I have used a pair for the last three years top stuff. But go to a optometrist, will cost about $50.00, cheap is not always the best. Silverfish
  10. Count me in, Away over my head, never caught a jew in my life. Caught most other things they give needles for.
  11. Out side the North Bourke pub, caught on a boiled egg.
  12. Hi, Dan A, I have a small solar panel I put on my boat while it is parked at home and keeps the battery charged up all the time. I brought mine at Jay Car Electronics for about $130.00 threes years ago. There would be other Raiders who would know more about solar panels it than I. Marine battery is the way to go(ask someone in the know as there are pitfalls if you buy the wrong one. Silverfish
  13. Hi All, A big thanks for the info on Crowdy Head it will certainly make things a lot easier than just arriving there and standing around scratching ones head wondering what to do next. I think the key is plan ahead and avoid the hassles. Rgds Silverfish.
