  1. New boat trailer rust protection prevention

    A good hose down after every fish, I spray with Lanox now and again, I think that a lock is a good protection against thieves but not recognised as a safety device if it comes off the tow ball, get another piece of chain and use a yellow d shackles as well. Works for me.
  2. Buying first kayak!

    The rudder ones are OK, just pull the rope and it lifts out of the water.
  3. Transporting 2 kayaks

    Too hard for my wife and myself to keep loading and unloading, we are 66 and 72, so I decided to make the trailer, they sit on foam rubber works a treat, total cost of trailer with jockey wheel and spare, registered on road $900 the rest cost $299.50.

  15. Boat sounder with gps or without.. what do you think?

    Mate if you haven't got a emergency device linked to your gps you should not be out there, who has got time to put in co ordinates in an emergency, your only putting yourself and others at risk, get a kayak and stay in the river!
