    Boat Rewiring,tinned Cable?

    Seagoon.. What I was refering to, was don't use mains cable as a starter.... I've seen people do that before becaue " if it's good enought to use it home, it's good enough for my outboard"..... no go.. pete..

    Boat Rewiring,tinned Cable?

    Hey , Personally I wouldn't use building cable on a boat.. Although the size of the cores maybe the same, or indeed larger, they are still rated to 10, possibly 15amps... Building cable has a thicker conductor due to higher voltage, low ampres that is generally used in a house. Can you imagine if somoene was wiring up a boat and used it as a starter cale thats pulling about 30-40 amps under crank???.. Use the right cable for the right purpose... Use DC cable for DC and AC mains cable for AC applications. regards, pete.

    Access To Como Bridge?

    hmm, loosing tackle / POSSIBLY catching fish.. I think it's a good try! Like I said, I've only ever tried it from the boat, so didn't loose alot at all, although it seemed like quite a productive area. By the surround of the area, it must be a rocky bottom for sure..might float the bait then and try my luck.. should be good either way=] thanks raiders:) pete

    Access To Como Bridge?

    G'day raiders! Some time away from the site I am now back into the scene! After tackling Botany Bay yesterday and getting no luck, I have decided to move further inland [quite the opposite them most people]... Can anyone tell me if there is LANDBASED access to under como bridge??? On the marina side...I've fished around there a few times, but only by boat so wanting to tackle it head on.. from the land! thanks raiders,, pete=]

    Boat Electricals

    ..gday Another great idea like the photo shows is using a 'jiffy' inclosue to mount a switch panal.. With that, also a plus is using cable glands, not gromets!. Glands will protect the box from anything going inside as you can tighten them around the cable, so you can hose the boat out wil no worries about water going behind the switches, also a plus for salt water prevention. A standard automotive gromet will suffice, although personally I perfer glands. Pete:)

    Vhf Radios

    hi, Purchasing a unit from America shouldn't be a problem as I think all channels are the same?? Maybe only repeater channels are changed although emergency ones are identical? Possibly another raider and clarify as anything to do with safety should be double checked. pete

    Leccie Battery And Charger Advice

    g'day, as with charging batteries, it is ideal to charge a Sealed battery to approximately 10% of it's capacity and not to give it too much current. Too muhc current, and being sealed may cause the plates to pop, because there is no exhaust for the gasses to escape which is a concern for ANY BATTERY BEING CHARGED! As stated, if you have a 100amp battery, then 10amp charge would be great. With a 6 Stage charger, it is exactly that, it will pump it's total capacity [charger dependent], and then in 6 stages when the battery is getting close to full, switch to trickle. If you can, get a charger that is close to 10% of the batteries capacity.The battery will last longer because there is no sulpheration build up that can occur when you are only 'topping' up the battery. As most poeple know, just make sure that your charger does switch to to a trickle cause you don't want that hundred dollar battery being useless in the first season. ta, pete:)
