    New Extra Long Ramp at Shoal Bay???

    Ouch will be a absolute pain to get back on to the trailer. I worry when I drag my boat up that hill, sometimes I even go round to Gov rd to avoid it.

    Quintrex 420 renegade SC

    My Telwater lights failed at 13mths, it ended up a wiring connection fault, so I just deleted the 3 way plug on the side lights and it’s fixed it for a while. My winch broke about 4mths ago, the part (Pawl) that runs on the gear somehow ended up bent under the gear (I think brother in law was to strong) and I could not winch my boat on, so I had to dunk the trailer more and drive it on. Got home knocked out the pin and bent it into shape and it’s back to working, but I don’t trust it anymore and have a ratchet strap as a back up to hold the boat to the winch post.

    Oil leak.

    Yep its been flood and the excess fuel and oil has washed carbon out the exhaust ports. I run my smaller engines out of fuel as well and if possible I start it at home before heading out to save a wasted trip, I would pull the spark plugs and give them a quick clean before the next trip, just as a back up.

    2 stroke puttering below certain revs?

    My old 2 stroke used to do this, light splutter down low but once throttle applied it would clear and run beautifully. I put it down to being a 2 stroke it loved to rev and it never let me down, I just cleaned the plugs regularly and I dialed back the oil mix just a fraction (55:1 rather than 50:1 )and used a higher octane petrol, Still had the stutter but not as bad. What the plugs like after a run

    Re wiring LED lights on tralier help

    This happened to my plug from new, I thought it was the car as the trailer lights worked on my wife's car but not my Ranger made the pins slightly wider and it now works on all cars.

    Rod holder - angles for drifting vs anchoring

    I have the one on the right, here's my tips Most of my new rods have a short butt, so you have to be careful when placing them into it, So I only use it for my long butt rods. Do not travel with your rod in the holder, especially med to small butt rods, that's how I lost my brand new Shimano rod and Reel, got smashed by a tanker wave on the left and a fast moving 50ft cruiser on the right and bing it was gone, trying telling the wife the new $300+ combo you bought is gone.

    Used boat advice-Bowrider

    Here is my next piece of advice 1. Service receipts are the key, no records, no service has been done, even when they say they did it or a mate did it, no Record no service. 2. Look up where your local Etec Dealer is and see what they shop and service is like. 3. 190hrs is not much, so if it has all of the above and looks the goods and drives nice through idle , mid range and top speed then it should be fine.
