Re: Motors on kayaks

Also, registration and boat licensing are 2 different things. Perhaps we are not all discussing the same issue?

Re: Motors on kayaks

I feel as though there are biased opinions on this topic. Obviously those that dont own a yak will want to see yaksman pay fees but those that owns a yak will want to go fee free. Its simple, kinda like how car owners have to pay for using toll way back in the days and motorbikes didnt have to but ...

Re: Motors on kayaks

Ok, not trying to be a stirrer here or anything but I'm stunned that there seems to be any popular support for what I see (personally) as unnecessary regulation. So much so, that I'm questioning my own beliefs on this as I generally have a good deal of respect for the opinions of most of the regular...

Re: AWQ VHF radio

Thanks wolly. Im always suspicious when im told by a retailer that i cant buy it on ebay for half the price from america for reason x,y or z. In this case it appears im wrong. Whilst the ITU do manage the spectrum for vhf marine radio it appears many countries bastardise it for local use and are onl...

Re: AWQ VHF radio

I dont think there is a UHF marine radio? I could be wrong but I thought all the UHF Radios in the shops were terrestrial, like for 4x4 etc...... Are you referring to 27MHz? The UHF for marine use is the 27 meg, however the use of the VHF radio is perhaps better with a greater range. 27MHz is actua...

Re: AWQ VHF radio

Only uhf marine band. Other the is the scumbags if cb an not worth using. I've never heard of this. after a google search though, it is used on large ships between members of the crew or something, like handheld walkie talkies (similar to security guards in a shopping mall). It's not a marine band ...

Re: sienna service question

Try more or thicker shims first. I have one with the same issue but haven't tried to fix it yet. It's probably not worth getting spare parts from shimano due to the cost plus postage but worth getting a quote I suppose. On special I have bought new sienna 2500 for $25. Perhaps you could try finding ...

Re: Fishing at Lilydale lake

I've had very little luck in lilydale lake. Got a few follows by reddies chasing lures I cast from the timber decks. I've seen a few trout caught (not by me) on power bait off the rocks near where the creek flows into the lake, not far from the car park.
