    Boat battery charger

    Hi guys, I have recently boat a 4m tinny, it has a 100ah deep cycle battery which powers the fish finder, nav lights, and led lights. I'm new to boating and am unsure how exactly this battery is meant to be charged. It is not connected to the motor. It is held in place by screws so it's a bit of a pain to remove. Any suggestions ? What kind of charger would I need ? And how would I charge the battery? Thanks in advance

    Water out of exhaust port

    Hi I'm relatively new to boats, I've purchased a tinnie with a 15hp 2 stroke motor. I just noticed that water spouts out the exhaust port that is above the water, below the cowling clip. Is this normal? Also it starts and runs fine on higher revs but it cuts out at idle and then takes like 6 pulls before it will start again What could be the cause of this problem? Thanks in advance

    Closing gang hooks

    Hi raiders, I've always purchased pre-ganged hooks to save me the hassle of ganging them myself Recently I thought I would buy some open eye gang hooks and do it myself. I thought to myself, how hard could it be? Bought some mustard open eye gang hooks, for the life of me I couldn't close the eye of the hook with my pliers. Just wondering what people use to close the gangs. Maybe I'm using the wrong type of pliers Thanks

    Closing gang hooks

    Thanks guys Just confused by the swivel So put one end of the swivel into the eye and close the eye. Then the other end of the swivel goes to through the hook, past the barb So how would you keep that in place The barb isn't big enough to keep the swivel in

    Water out of exhaust port

    Hi mate Thanks for the info Whenever I keep it on idle. It'll cut out, regardless of whether I return from higher revs or just after starting I've always just compensated by starting it and always running it on higher revs It can be a bit annoying at times It's starts up fine normally but if it cuts out at idle it takes a while to start back up It's a 2009 dt15

    Salmon as Jewfish bait

    Thanks mate I'll be sure to give it a try next time I get out I'll find it to hard to use a whiting as bait cause they taste too good But I'll be sure to try tailor and salmon fillets

    Salmon as Jewfish bait

    Now that would be a big bait for a big jew A Jew would have a hard time trying to catch such a big salmon, salmon are very fast
