    bilge pump or not to bilge pump.....

    I get a bit of water down there from time to time through the cable holes - as water can get down there, I actually fill it up on the trailer with fresh water to get the salt out using the pump. They are worth having

    Johnd - (WRONG) if a boat is capable of exceeding 10 knots it requires a licence driver on board -

    The reason you don't need an inspection is because the Tare weight of the trailer is below 256kg - (if it exceeds the 256kg it requires an inspection and incurs a weight tax as well)

    Has anyone used a bait boat?

    Tried one of these a few years back (a mate of mine got it from ebay) used it at night for Hairtail - we caught a few (I Smiths Creek) but I don't know if they were attracted by this or the berley bucket on the boat we were sitting in ?????

    Silly things you've done when tired?

    Hooked up the boat, attached the chain and wire for the lights and did not lock it down on the ball and just drove off - In the next street it jumped off and dragged along the road behind the car- (Who else has done this be honest)

    Braked boat trailers

    YES - mine has brakes and I lowed the weight by removing the walkway and the spare tyre bracket so it is now 248kg, it was 280 originally now I have dropped my rego from 202 dollars to 67 (this is the second boat I have done this to ans my two mates have done the same. The best time to do it is well before your rego is due 1) you have the trailer reweighed - 2) take the paperwork and the trailer to an e-inspection place (one that can do BLUE slips - (They can change the RTA records) 3) when your renewal comes (it will not require an inspection and it will be a $100 cheaper)

    Braked boat trailers

    Boys - we are talking about trailer weight only - without the boat - if it is less than 256kg it does not need an inspection nor does it have the weight tax.
