Re: What happened to the snapper comp we had running here?

I think I won this. I entered the first 2 fish in the competition I caught early season out of Corinella and one was a very good size. I think I might have ruined the comp by entering such a fish early. Sorry. Not many entries after that from memory. I remember receiving a PM telling me I won but I ...

The LS1 is a GM aluminium small block 5.7 litre V8. In the order of 300HP. In other words, this thing flies. Nice boat.

Re: Flushing toilets

Haha. My guess is he has a girlfriend that won't go with him if they don't have modern facilities! It took much persuading and persistence on my behalf (and a lot of hanging on on hers) before my partner would go anywhere near a drop pit. Now she loves camping out but still not as much as a fancy ho...

Re: Interesting trip to WP

That cod you caught. Did it have an eel like tail? It looks kinda like a ling to me given its colour and size. If so, it's certainly not undesirable on the plate as ling is one of the best eating fish in the bay. Upon further investigation it seems that southern rock cod can get to 50cm! I've caught...

Re: Motor service

I don't know what outboard mechs charge but doing it yourself is incredibly easy if you can spin a spanner. Should be able to knock it over in under an hour with a bit of practice and cost you about $50-$100 in parts if you shop around. The requirements for servicing will be listed In Your owners ma...

Re: What is this?

What rb85 said. Pretty common to see that. It's easier to identify when all the negs are black and all the pos are red though! Nothing wrong with doing it that way, often there is a pos bus on the switches and a negative post just like yours when there isn't too much to wire up. Stick your multimete...

Re: Quick session out from Sorrento

Interestingly the mackerel seemed to be at the bottom of the school. We didn't catch any on the hard bodies or slugs that seemed to pick up a few salmon from the top. Getting to the bottom and bouncing off the sand a few times was were we found them. Would be a great fun target on a microjig setup I...

Re: Quick session out from Sorrento

The slimies were about 10% of the catch in the school and seemed to prefer the larger jigs than the salmon (or the salmon were less interested in them). Smallest was about 35cm largest was probably about 42cm and they were fat, producing nice thick fillets.

Re: Storing boat during winter

Those that are getting better results from using higher octane fuels comes as a surprise to me. There is technically not supposed to be any performance advantage to running it in a an engine that can't take advantage of it. I know my old xr6 falcon could get an extra 50 odd km out of a tank when I u...

Re: Where to buy gaffs from?

X 2 for Tony's tackle. He will probably be at the boat show show again this year if you can wait that long! Hookem also make good gear.
