  1. Navman GPS Issues

    Hi Raiders, Last time I went out all my electrics started up as normal and lit up. but after waiting some time I noticed that my Navman GPS was not picking up the satellite? Just wondering if this means the unit is no buggered and I have to look for a replacement? or can it be serviced? I checked all connection and they seem all connected and fine and all fuses are OK? My GPS is a large 6 inch Navman colour GPS /plotter
  2. Thankyou Marine Rescue

    and for a surprise as we were talking the Captain and I were discussing our surnames and discovered we were related right back to the mother country Wales.... small world
  3. Thankyou Marine Rescue

    I would just like to give a HUGE shout out to Marine Rescue Solomon and Bondi Rescue. Yesterday after the weather turned and started to blow up, as we had to very young soles with us . We decided to turn for home and try to beat the wind. As we goy level with Bondi and about 2 km from shore our motor stopped. It seemed like we were out of fuel . But the case was the fuel line had became very hard and split and water separator had also corroded. so it was sucking air. The swell was getting bigger as well and with a drift towards the coast and heading south, I wasted no time in calling in Rescue. Sydney Rescue put Rescue Solomon on to me via mobile phone as Sydney Recue were also busy and Solomon was the closest. They maintained constant contact with me by phone informing me or distance and time from where the rescue crew was. My crew took the opportunity to keep the boys amused and keep fishing even though we were dragging anchor toward shore. I called them back when we were within 100m from the rocks just south of Bondi. Bondi Rescue were then also sent out on jet skis to help keep us from the rocks, but by then we were attached to the rescue boat and heading for home. After filling out the paperwork, I just have to mention just in case some people are thinking I cant ring then due to cost? They asked for a donation to cover fuel? A very small cost to save your life and the life of others.. I hade no problem in supporting a great cause like these guys. So I gave them a few 100 bucks for their trouble and got all their trouble. Maybe we at fishraider can organise a meet and greet day and to raise some funds for these guys seeing as we all may need them at one time... If any of my Friends are not Fish Raiders, and would like to become part of a great group of fish enthusiasts look it up on facebook or the net... For the crew of Marine Rescue Solander, Donations can be made via the Facebook page....

  7. Nsw Maritime Authority Info

    People like this involved I would not consider as a DIVER. I am a certified Wreck diver as well a certified deep diver, first response first aid and a rescue and recovery diver.. and stories like this just piss me off. We learn these skills to help other and protect not just the environment, but also others when needed..

  10. Hi, Im not MIA just busy

    Hi everyone, Just thought I would do a little post to say hi and merry xmas to all the fish raiders. I hope you all have a safe holiday season and catch that memory of a lifetime. What have I been up to? Well we have had a huge year between racing the dirt track sidecar and do my community work and business in Fiji I have been flat-out. Things are very hectic at times and I haven't been able to get to my messages that often... If you need some help or just wanted to contact me my email is the best way... yarraonesg@gmail.com I hope to be able to get the boat out of Sydney very soon and try for some kings and maybe a marlin if the weather does us a favour... So keep an eye out for Adi Waitui . Has anyone else planned to go out from Botany or rose bay to target the 12mile, FAD or some marlin? My racing was a huge year with 8th in Australia, 4th in NSW titles and a finish 2nd in the Championship , 2nd at Griffith Masters here is a pic... Here is a pic of my trip to the cook islands, they said it couldn't be done but, here I am when I managed to get a GT to rise out of the water for a bit of a rub. and here I am on my boat in Fiji when I dropped a marlin but got these to great fish..
