  1. Was told to spray hull with water peel letter-number place sticky side on hull then smooth water from underneath to remove water and air bubbles. Anyone tried it. Thanks
  2. Just about finished a makeover for my aluminium boat. Had to take old rego numbers off to paint her up. Is there an easy way to replace those sticy new numbers. Thanks Mowie1
  3. Thanks members Will try flushing for longer and pull out thermo next year and have a look.
  4. Hi I use ears on the intake sounds like I am not running the motor long enough when flushing. Water at tell tail & exhaust warm, thermo does not open fully but water does come out.
  5. Hi all just started my annual outboard maintenance for my 40hp Yamaha. Took the thermostat out to find it covered in salt (has been in 2 years ).I flush the motor after every use. This started me thinking how much salt build up is there in water jacket etc. Had a look on the net, came across a few flushing liquids that are to connect to flushing unit that claim to get rid of salt in motor. Q has anyone used these products and are they worth the($150 aprox)? Thanks
  6. Flyin have a few days at destination sightseeing / fishing /liveaboard or home base at destination. I know the options are endless. SA snapper, NT liveaboard etc. Need to do a lot more research.
  7. I would be looking at charter boat fishing
  8. Where would you go or return to fish if you could in Australia. When the boarders open I am looking to having a trip of a life time, 60 something crisis, if I don't do it soon it may never happen. I am reasonably fit and well, no time issues, fly or drive, and done a lot of fishing (boat) Not really into freshwater fishing. So where would you go?
  9. Mate was telling me he has hear of cars & boats pulled over on the road for unrestrained load in the boat on the trailer. You cant have any object in the boat on the floor ie tackle box rods esky. Has anyone else hear of this. I can understand it the boat is packed to the gunwale with etc camping gear,chairs & floaty tube toys not tied down.
  10. Try Mullet creek off Kanahooka road turn at Motel
  11. After many faithful years and miles the old trailer has finely succumbed the dreaded rust. I am looking at a Seatrail AL4.2M13R or Seatrail AL4.2M13. The only difference is one has rollers the other has skids. I have an aluminium boat on a roller trailer at the moment. Should i change from roll trailer or change to skid type or does it make any difference ????
  12. My old GME294 radio has died Time to get a newy trying to compare GME700vhf and Uniden um455vhf .Any thoughts on these two thanks Peter
  13. Get an angle grinder cut split pins off (bastard to try & pull out). Nock the centre pin in roller through bracket and roller and replace them. Put plenty of marine greese on new spindle before pushing roller through bracket replace split pin ( Stainless steel ) a little messey. Flat roller could work ok .Check the rollers once a year .Looking at picture again the keel is to wide for those rollers, trailer may have been made for an aluminium boat. May need to replace centre rollers & brackets. Cheaper than new trailer.
  14. location: Lake Illawarra , 4 lift crab pots not hats & 2 crab traps , Bait :chicken necks & fish frames , Decline: past 3 to 4 years ,both my neighbour's plus a couple of friends on the other side of lake say the same all good fisho"s , Size: numbers and time to catch (used to get 8-10 in 4hrs) now only half as many in 6hrs. Have used same 3 spots for years before with good success , others use some different spots. Same outcome
  15. Hi just putting this out there the size on blue swimmer crabs .The size is rather small(6cm) and the taking of females (jennys )without eggs. I have seen a real decline in crab numbers in the past few years. My self put back all females( jennys breading stock) plus small males. Increase the size on males and no take on all females( jennys ) I love a feed of crabs (chilli , plain boiled etc). What do you think.
