    Fuel additives...anybody use them?

    I would hardly call them ethanol compatible. The manufacturers seem to accept that ethanol free fuel might not be available in all places and therefore suggest the use expensive fuel additives to prevent (I say, slow down) damage. But common sense should prevail??? Why use ethanol fuel if you have 91 octane ethanol free fuel available??

    Anyone from Forster

    Yep, been down that road, but this guy is from WA, has looked at all the photos and just wanted an "in person" look, no test drives or anything like that.

    Hayden rods?

    Thanks for that Hill37373 I matched it with a vintage Trudex reel, it's a great combo. I managed to get 3 blackfish today, they were a bit touchy.

    Hayden rods?

    Nice find. Hayden's were a sports store in Merrylands that built rods - they were there when I was a kid through the '60s and 70's. I have a spin rod that my dad had built for me when I was about 12 or 13 so 1970 or thereabouts in the garage - it has the red and white Fuji runners on it that were popular around that time. Its unbranded so I don't remember if it came from Haydens or the other rod builder further down Merrylands Rd that was called Deveson's.

    If your mate was that stupid to blame you, you are better off apart anyway, as who in their right mind would hold someone responsible for that.

    Anyone from Forster

    Its at that point at this point any so called 'responsibility' on your part should have ceased not that I believe it should exist at all!! My point being your simply making a suggestion that it is worth looking at further, its then up to the end buyer to take the steps go through it further in more depth with an inspection & not just pull his cheque book out on your advice. Had he got it serviced upon returning to Brisvagas it probably wouldn't have happened! Its a shame your ex mate couldn't see it that way 😕

    Noel. I regard you as a mate so please don't take this the wrong way. For anyone to take up your request could lead to displeasure. About 2 years ago a friend asked me to check out a boat for a mate of his, which I was happy to do, the boat was great with no apparent faults and I thought it was a great buy. I relayed my thoughts to my mate and his mate came down from Brisbane and purchased the boat. 3 months later I was informed that the motor had been cooked on the boat and the mates mate was expecting ME to make good the repairs ( turned out a plastic bag foiled the water intake and was driven till the motor cooked ) but the owner was holding me responsible because in his mind , I gave him a bum steer on buying the boat. Anyhow over a month or 2 with back and forth conversations led to me and my mate not talking to each other, so I lost a so called mate over something that was completely out of my control. Not a true mate cause a true mate would have stuck by me, but I am saying BE CAREFUL !!. It won't stop me from doing anything I can to help someone out, it's just one experience I want to share with others to warn them what can happen. Frank

    Striated Frogfish?

    I had to check this again - in fact I think the same fish (Antennarius striatus ) is listed as striated anglerfish and striated frogfish. It certainly had little "arms" and almost legs on its body. http://fishesofaustralia.net.au/home/species/3832

    Rui Squid Jigs - Anyone used them?

    Really interesting you say that. I noticed the same thing when I caught my finger on one of the spikes and I didn't jump through the roof like the Yamashita ones tended to do to me.

    What a pitty, I have just come back from Forster (Tuncurry) today. Would have been more than happy to have a look. I will be back up there early October if that helps?

    Fuel additives...anybody use them?

    Even unleaded can have a small percentage of ethanol these days, if there is a tiny bit of water in my tank you can see stabil dissolve it with your own eyes. I have used Ringfree as well however it a cleaner /decarbonizer rather than a cure for water problems, you can this as a shock treatment like Seafoam if you want to risk being fined by the EPA. Fuels are designed for modern cars with plenty of additive so its probably a waste of money.

    Striated Frogfish?

    I think it is a species of Anglerfish that uses the strong fins on the underneath part of the body to walk along the ocean floor. Similar to Handfish and Frogfish species.

    Hayden rods?

    Hi, Testing my memory. There were Hayden fly rods around years ago. Don't remember any black fish rods. Cheers.

    Fuel additives...anybody use them?

    Also straight off the yamaha website, http://maintenance.yamahaoutboards.com/fuel-fuel-system/ "what can I do to protect myself from the damaging effects of ethanol" dot point 2 "add fuel stabiliser" dot point 3 is "use ring free". 😂😂😂

    Fuel additives...anybody use them?

    This is just one of many conversations had regarding ethanol fuel. I'm not saying it right this is just what I'm reading.

    Central coast kingfish

    Sounds like you had a ball, was trying to estimate how far off you fished if it took an hour, possibly 20-24knots would have you 40k from the ramp. Do you normally leave the skin on kings fillets, or remove before cooking. The bit about backing into the garage in the dark is something I can relate with, only my crew disappear indoors for food and coffee leaving me on my own. Because I back up a hill from the main road, then turn at right angles to reverse up the drive, I found painting a couple of white lines exactly where my trailer wheels need to be as a guide. My boat is 2.35m wide and the distance between the brick pillars is 2.40m, so only 5cm to spare. Also leaving the outside lights off helps. The outer edge of the drivers side tyre has to stay exactly along the outer side of this line. Ive been dining on kingfish regularly lately but the last two days we've been back on the bluefin for dinner.

    Hayden rods?

    Hi Raiders, I picked up a nice vintage rod today. It's a Sportex 525 blank with Hayden label. I haven't heard of them before and just wondering if anyone can fill me in. Its new old stock, the shrink wrap is still on the cork grips. Just under 11ft it's built as a blackfish rod with 7 guides and the tip. The guides are all wire and the tip is a red and white Fuji. I'm looking forward to trying it out in the harbour tomorrow.
