Re: Safety Chains

As to how your boat is on the trailer, as a very rough guide, if you have a deep vee and don't have a pod typically the motor should touch the ground the trimmed all the way down on the trailer.

Generally the lower the boat the better they tow and easier to launch and retrieve.

Typically for a boat with a decent V for launching you want the rear chines about 2" under the water.

Then work out how far the car is from the water and go about 30cm shallower for retrieval.

Re: Safety Chains

At any decent ramp you should never get your feet wet so that is no excuse.

Re: Bream fishing over the holidays

I was down the silt jetty last week along the Mitchell LB. Great scenery, got bites but no catches :( Comercial fishos were running hundreds of metres of nets into Eagle bay. First day I saw one I called Fisheries but they didn't seem fussed at all. These blokes were out every day even in choppy co...

Exactly what I thought. No airbags, but metal


Yep but not good from a safety side of things.
