  1. How is it possible for a running outboard to upset a gps compass? I went out with my mate in his new runabout. I opened the compass app on my phone and noticed the red end of the compass pointed nearly south. When he shut the motor down the red end swung around and pointed north' as it should. The only explanation I can come up with is that the electronics on the outboard generate a radio interference on the same frequency that the gps compass uses. Any other thoughts? Jim
  2. Growing up in Coff's Harbour we would regularly meet an old lady whilst we were fishing the run in of the creek at night. She would sniff the air and say that there were jewies on the beach. She fished with a handline and beach worms and never missed catching some
  3. What a waste. Tossing all the flesh on the backbone and the skin. Nothing nicer than crispy skin. I will stay with my old method.

    Storing a motor

    When storing a motor after use and having flushed it should you run the motor dry of fuel to stop carbies getting clogged

    Outboard oil

    Ok. Here is the problem, I have a 30HP Yamaha 2stroke oil injected outboard. I have filled the oil reservoir with some 4 stroke oil. Any problems here?

    Advice on old tinny

    Years back I had a tinny with a leak under a frame, near the keel line. I drilled it out and inserted a blind aluminum pop rivet. Packed it with 2 part epoxy. Never leaked again
