  1. So, We made the trip from the harbour up to the back of Jerusalem Bay. Lots of bait but no hairies around so far tonight. Such is Hairtailing I guess.
  2. Hi fellow fishraiders, I am considering getting a touch of frost bite and sharing company with the brass monkey's on the weekend. Can any tell me if Harry is active at the moment? I have obviously seen the 2 reports here, but looking for an update on these finicky critters. Dont want to loose digits to frost bite if there is not a better than fair chance, particularly as I am taking a mate who has driven 5hrs to get the opportunity! Any leads / info gratefully accepted. Thanks!
  3. Not sure it would be a major issue. I think Maritime could probably search you / vessel on a data base to confirm. Would be interesting to know for sure, though
  4. I think that if council where to do anything, consideration should be given to adding some additional parking on the southern side of the hill and into the access road to the ovals...relatively easy to achieve (but a small gain), and put a timed lock out on the water supply. That would go some way to alleviating the issues.
  5. The reason that the Tunks locals got cranky was more due to the fact that boaties were coming in late / early and flushing their motors at all hours. Some people are just plain selfish. Flushing your 2 stroke at 2.00am in the morning in the middle of suburbia will not endear you to anyone..... Try it at home on a regular basis and see how the neighbourhood responds ! Unfortunately, the council then got a bee in their bonnet and decided to look at some brilliant ideas including the removal of a chunk of parking spaces....brilliant indeed! Remove the services and increase th
  6. I would like to explain the meaning of some of the signage that one might see on the waterways… Generally you can find & interpret the meaning of this signage in the study manuals when sitting for your boat licence, but some of the training facilities and particularly the teachers of those who do Self Study seem to gloss over the meaning & as such it gets lost in favour of understanding more complex issues such as which side is Port & which is Starboard…… Anyway…. No Wash DOES NOT mean that it is not necessary to have a bath / shower - it has an altogether
  7. Thanks for that. I was looking their website today.
  8. Hi all, Looking for some recommendations...... Does anyone have any good / bad / indifferent guiding comments for a Jervis Bay charter....? Please send me a PM so we don't breach any forum rules. Thanks in anticipation..
  9. I use them on my Caribbean. We regularly head up to the Hawkesbury from the harbour and have often encountered some fairly unpleasant conditions. I found that they performed as well as might be expected for a fairly low budget pedestal. They are not a proper suspension seat by any stretch of the imagination so don't expect a lounge chair ride! They will bottom out depending on your height setting. They will add comfort above that of a fixed pedestal. I have had to replace several due to apparent poor quality control which resulted in the helm chair wobbling aroun
  10. Helli fishing in Darwin. One of the few things I regret not doing whilst up there.
  11. Try QBE. They might be able to help you. They will want to see your current mooring certificate. Good luck
  12. it is possible that's a fair statement, but to be honest, you just can't tell. The second photo appears to be externally in better condition, but that is not any guarantee about the internals. Wish it was easier than that, but its not! Get the service logs....might be a better guide than external appearance. Good luck with it, whatever you decide.
  13. Hi Blatros, I'm afraid that you will only get a vague indication of condition by looking at the outside. The only way to tell is by removing the jacket and inspecting the inside of the riser on water jackets. If there is obvious heavy corrosion rust staining on the outside then be wary. Engine overheating may also indicate rusted out risers. But as I said, you have to remove to inspect. Regards
  14. Closer still is Berrowra waters. Have a poke around both sides of the ferry. Although, it does get a bit of a hiding on the weekends. Have a look around Brooklyn too. Alternately there are walking tracks that will get you to some of the spots in middle harbour like Bantry Bay and fig tree bay. Good luck
  15. To be a comfortable 7 person, I really can't see anything under 26ft being suitable. I have a 28 Caribbean which has a big cockpit, and I wouldn't want to fish 7 persons. A family of 4 could be comfortable on a Caribbean 26 (flybridge, I know!) overnight in my view, but if you are used to the cabin in a 28ft Marina, you might struggle to adapt! That extra couple of feet make a big difference. Alternatively, look at a cat...at least you get the cockpit width and 2 donks. Just my 2c... Best of luck!
