  1. Ah Me Ting

    NAV Lights

    Yes, isn't it frustrating when people ask for help but then just disappear and never report back if and how the problem was solved. @jordy 👍 onya mate!

    NAV Lights

    Or, the hull is part of the circuit? Known to be wired that way by some boat builders (and owners).

    NAV Lights

    What's the hull material? What sort of boat?

    NAV Lights

    Were you testing on the positive (red) wire or the negative (black) wire? Where did you attach you testing leads?

    NAV Lights

    When you tested the starboard light, where did you attach each end of the leads? Did you by pass the switch for the nav lights in the way you tested the circuit? Port side could then be a stuffed light, or other circuit issue.
  6. 😲 ... Geez, ole mate Matt made a LOT of cuts and must have used a LOT of rivets! His finished set up looks good. The under floor rod storage locker looks interesting. Great share. PS: I like your project too. Following your thread with interest.
  7. Hope this is not against the forum rules, but, here is a link to a boat for sale listing... It has a bait board over a similar motorwell. @Ah Me Ting take a pic and add it here please

    Outboard oil

    100% agree ... on both. I still do not know how, to this day, I managed to put full tank of unleaded fuel into my diesel ute. Brian fade moment as I picked up the nozzle at the bowser is all I can muster as any form of defense. And, just like this outboard boating instance, I had the ute towed and drained the tank to avoid any possible engine issue. Not cheap, but a lot cheaper than an engine rebuild.
  9. @Green Hornet have you got any more pics of how you did your floor, etc? Post 'em up in the new thread I just started, so we don't hijack this thread. New thread is here:
  10. I just started a new thread so we can share our idea's... It's here: @kingie chaser ... you wanna repost your's in there too?
  11. I can not seem to get these to all go into the one post. Message keeps telling me I only have 2.12Mb of total pictures to post? But, on this new post I have 4.88Mb? Anyway, here's a few more pictures: This is the floor fully installed:
  12. Ok, so I'll get it started. I setup up a Stessco Squire 385 a few years ago. At the time, I wanted the option of keeping it available as a roof topper type tinny, so decided to make the floor fully removable. So, I built a 'truss' style sub floor on which the carpeted marine ply floor was fixed. Here's a couple of pictures: This is the 'sub-floor' aka "truss": This is how I did each side of the floor:
  13. Rather than hijack @Tinny pimp project build thread https://www.fishraider.com.au/topic/89936-tinny-fit-out/ I thought I'd start a new thread where we could share and discuss the various ways we've gone about putting a floor in our tinny. So, c'mon show us what you've done, or have! It might just help someone with an idea or alternative solution.
  14. If your still hunting ... Try putting up a "wanted" ad on gumtree. Just mention in the listing that you're happy to travel to collect it and a price range your happy with...
  15. Hidden gem around there for sure... Shhhh! I grew up on the mighty Camden Haven. Surfing, fishing, boating. Great times back in the 80s. Next time try: - North side off point perp, access via the low road down to pilot beach. - North Haven breakwall down about half way between the beach car park and the big park down near the shop. There's a couple of under wall pipes that flood the back waters (where the green weed grows) and seems to attract fish on a run out tide. - On Dunbogan side, you'll see Googleys run out, which is about opposite the stretch mentioned above on the North Haven side. It too produces on run out tide. - Geebung out toward diamond head is a good beach spot. Seems to get good gutters and sand banks. - North toward Bonny Hills, across road from the piggery, 4wd access track to midway on Grants Beach is also a good fishing spot. Gets good gutters. - South side of diamond head, and surrounds to Kylie's is rugged but less fished and can produce. - Around beaches north and south of 'middle rock' at the southern end of Lake Cathie township gets good gutters too. Good luck!
