  1. Oh mate... I feel for you. I think we have all been there at some time .... the bent rod and screaming reel ... then that dreaded limp line leaving a long burning memory of what could have been .... Anyway .... that's why its called fishin' not catchin' ... I have found that the only way to get over it is to go out and cast that line in again. Cheers Zoran
  2. Just awesome. Fantastic shots - especially considering you were out there. Photos remind me of that cloud chart that you could buy many years ago ... which gave you an insight into dangerous clouds. Only way I know Rick is to upload to youtube (you need a gmail account) ... and then paste the link in FR. PM me if you want more details. Cheers Zoran
  3. I'll be giving that a go for sure 👍.... thanks so much for sharing ! Cheers Zoran

Retrieval rate to be confirmed - but lots of combinations to try. cheers Zoran
  10. Hey Peter the reducer is removable. Fits both the 15:1 and 5:1. I thought I had a torn rotator cuff but a cat scan has shown I have a frozen shoulder (adhesive encapsulitis) - so I’m exploring anything that helps with boating. PM sent. cheers Zoran
  11. Hey Raiders, I had previously posted that I had installed a 15:1 hand winch and used an old cordless drill on low speed to winch the heavy Haines up the trailer. As it turns out, the cordless drill approach was a hit and miss. It worked on less steep ramps but it also developed a problem where the winch gear teeth chattered and slipped as even on low speed the drill was too fast for the meshing to work. Could just be the quality of the winch. There are no chipped teeth and the teeth don't slip when manually wound, which told me it was a speed related issue. Anyway, having a bit of ti
