  1. Thanks DerekD, that will put me at ease. Chris.
  2. Thinking of getting a couple of Hobie Quest 11's, total weight on roof of outlander would be 52 Kilos, I an worried about having them on the side on the roof, wind and the like, any experience here?
  3. I am thinking of getting a kayak, thanks that is great advice.
  4. I have a link5 the digital display went after 2 years.
  5. Donna, cannot open the link.
  6. Don't look like you will be fishing for a while!
  7. Only got so far, seems a bit sus, more ads?
  8. Stanton, sorry mate I assumed that you were going outside without normal safety gear, bon voyage.
  9. 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!
  10. Have you checked out the brooker marine sale on greys online, pity I have a f/g boat and spare tyres.
  11. Tried several times to contact using radio, the app did not work, newcastle area, it seems that lake macquarie is on line.
  12. They should fix it up and have a good use for the building, great spot for a base. I did my VHF course there.
  13. Will you be blocking the sign? Are you sure you are not inconveniencing others? If all the above are ok get a movement detector.
  14. The south pacific winch needs 1/2 inch rope, the spring can be obtained from any good hardware store, the spring is to keep positive pressure on the anchor to stop it moving around, if I want to it would probably pull f the mount on the boat, I only have about 1 metre of chain on the anchor as the weight keeps it down, on my sand anchor i have added steel to the vanes as added weights, will post a picture later.
  15. These are the fist 2 anchors I made, latest one has 6mm prongs only. There is 35mm steel rod inside the pipe this is to overcome the weight of the chain inside the boat, it works well.
