    Fuel filter

    I’m restoring (slowly🙄) a southwind 520 and the fuel filter is a simple screw off canister type. Should I replace it with a visible water seperator type with a drain plug and if so what’s the best type/brand. Don’t much like the canister where you can’t see anything.
  2. Thanks everyone for the advice. Zoran I’ll follow your suggestions and see how we go cheers
  3. Thanks Zoran. Yammie 70 four stroke. Buggerall hours. Bought it then decided to have a triple bypass. Hence the situation Tank is 80 capacity and there’s probably 70 in there ive been running on a portable tank but want to go back to using the main tank and have the little one for backup. Cheers
  4. I need to dispose of around 80 litres of petrol that is two years old. Will siphon it out of the underfloor tank and then what?Any ideas on how to dispose of it would be appreciated cheers
  5. Mowies are fine if cooked as suggested here already. Make sure the wings are removed if cooking any other way and fillets need the little reddish bit on top corner removed as well. Those two areas plus the skin are the source of the iodine taste. We eat mowies first night and snapper second night. Fillets are laid on kitchen paper on trays and left uncovered in the fridge. That removes a bit of excess moisture and we find snapper in particular are much better on second or even third day. To each his own of course!!
  6. We called them “Ned Kellie’s”. Line length about 300mm shorter than the rod. Tiny cork for a float . Poke them in under the willow trees with a black cricket or cicada on the end and hang on with both hands. Not very sporting but dynamite on bass! Of course you wouldn’t use them today🙄
  7. Looking at those rules I’m glad I don’t live in brisbane waters. Can’t do much in there!
  8. Thanks sea sponge. Just looked at that link and now confused. Is a witches hat classed as a net? I.e prohibited all nets other than a landing net? cheers
  9. Sounds like it. I’ll hasten slowly 😁
  10. Thanks blaxland I know the basic rules re gear and sanctuary zones but a bit unclear on territory limits. I.e was told can’t use traps above the bridges and can’t use dilly’s in coal an candle but internet searches no help confirming or otherwise. Appreciate any help cheers
  11. Anyone crabbing yet? Getting my little boat ready but still got a bit to do and just wondering if I should go faster😁
  12. Thanks for the info Toby. Great to see a young dedicated fisho. You’ll do well in other areas of your life I’m sure. cheers
  13. Great photos and great catches. Well done! Are they bass or ep’s? i can’t tell the difference but it’s something to do with the position of the gill rakers—I remember a bass is great eating and an ep is not—of course these days I’d release them. cheers
  14. What a great idea—didn’t realise you could charter a small boat off Sydney. Love to go out on this one as it looks very well set up. Can you give me a contact or if that breaks the site rules you could pm me. Thanks for sharing re the slow jigging method too cheers
