    New PFD needed. Advice please

    There are PFD's that automatically activate if you fall in the drink. They are the same as the ones where you need human interaction but are automatic. They are a bit dearer (around $150) but this is the closest you will get to comfort whilst fishing.

    Second Battery Suggestions needed

    Hmmm....that wouldn't be the Ah. That would be the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps)...... strength of the battery at starting. I have a 730CCA Century as well. Will check tomorrow to see if it's a "Pro" model. Amp Hours is usually between 10 to around 100/120/150 Ah.....

    Century are usually pretty good many Ah (Amp Hours) were they rated at?

    boat trailer inspection NSW what is looked at?

    I'm not suggesting that she doesn't weigh anything but she is nothing and I mean nothing comparing to my other boat. I have had her fully laden and towed her heaps of times and I can barely feel her on the back of my car. Even when I want to hook her up, I can lift the front and pull her 2-3mtrs to the tow bar without breaking sweat. The other boat, barely can lift the tow ball end, lol. Anyway, different boats...different trailers. I was just wondering as I know a few of my mates who have boats similar size, none have braked trailers like my boat. Baz's boat might be a heavier unit. Cheers Dave

    Hi Baz, If you own a Stacer 449, I'm surprised that it's a braked trailer? I have a 4.6mtr Aluminium Half Cabin with a 50Hp electric start and it's not braked. When I bought the new trailer, I was told that it is not required for that size. I also have a Quintrex 560 Freedom Sport and that is braked.

    Kingfish- no bait needed!!! (Video)

    Jeff, seriously.....have some heart for us poor souls that don't live up in Gods country. I feel for Fab....he hasn't even seen a fish that size in his boat, let alone hooked one. Poor bloke must be dying inside...
