Re: Australia and New Zealand Safe Boating Education Group AWQ Training Package

That is fantastic. It is something I keep putting off from doing. Are there any on-line certification courses or are they all face to face?

Hi Everyone, Seeking a bit of advice. On my side clears (and not doubt not dissimilar to every one else) I have a small round pad stuck to the clear to protect the clear from the adjacent screw on the bimini. For whatever reason, this year in the heat, the glue decided it wanted to melt and the litt...

Wouldn'd lemon juice overnight cook it through? Ceviche style? I put mine in mashed kiwi for a bit before cooking

Re: Web Browers

Probably firewall or anti virus related. When you get the problem again, temporarily disable the firewall and or anti-virus and see if the problem goes away. This is a real quick and easy check to hopefully determine what path to go down.

Re: Dash setup.

IMG_3997.JPG To cover up older holes I used black acrylic cut to shape. Cost me $30 for both. I then used marine silicone to stick it to the original dash and then mount my stuff on it. I use Navionics Gold running on an iPad2 enclosed in a waterproof hard case. HI Chris, Do you mind if I ask where...

Re: Dash setup.

I would suggest a gimbal mount from the flat level section behind the wheel and move the gauges so you can still see everything. I went panel mount 6 years ago and when it started to play up about 6 months ago, I got rather concerned what I could put back into the same hole as that series of sounder...

Re: New to Boating: Advice for First Boat?

Firstly and most importantly, welcome to Melbourne when you finally move. Moving in the winter will be painful but I suppose we whinge a bit here about the cold (at least I do) and is not as cold as parts of America. I hope you enjoy your stay and all the best with your studies. A boat which is stab...

Re: Marine Radio and Sounder

On the radio....I would go VHF.....I dont even turn on the 27meg unit anymore as there are too many clowns on the radio.
