Re: Air horn

I have a few of the small air horns ,and the Fox 40 sharkz whistles (120 dba) that I was collecting for the 4th safety day. Sadly KFDU at this stage will not be supporting the Safety day, so those items are for sale at or below cost. PM for cost and Spec.

Re: Air horn

I just paid $ 12.95 for a number the Whitworth gas powered air horns, with a view to providing them for the fourth safety day!

Re: VHF Cobra HH 475 bluetooth - feedback

I bought two Cobrra HH330's, overseas, and both failed in about a year. I wouldn't touch Cobra again with an 7' pole. In fact Robertski, an 7 ' Pole I know, said he wouldn't touch one either. They are junk IMO. The purpose of a radio is to get help when you are in trouble. Price is irrelevant. Stick...

Re: New laws for towing shackles and safety chains

Thanks for the warning Ian. You are spot on....would have been sensible to have a public awarenesss campaign. The government is incompetent. I also note that the electronic signs on the highway state the fine for texting whilst driving is $ 330 and 3 points. Having read that texting removes concentr...

Re: Air horn

the whistle in Arpies post is rated as 120db and comes in 2 sizes , roughly $10 from BLA. The smaller version is as loud as its big brother . Do not blow in an enclosed room or near animals ! Thanks Paul Similar for the Fox 40 Sharxz whistle, and probably comparable to Whitworths mini-air horn, but...

No Immunity

Just a warning.... I, and undoubtedly some of you, heard about the EBay security breach a while back, urging an immediate change of passwords to millions of people. Well yesterday I received a warning from Google (which is linked to my email) that two unauthorised attempts were made to access my Goo...

Good fishing Dave and Ian. You might well make contact with a mangrove jack in amongst those pylons. Enjoy your feed.

Re: Air horn

I also carry this, which is very small: https://www.whitworths.com.au/main_itemdetail.asp?cat=144&item=43905&intAbsolutePage=1, in case a Fox 40 Sharkz whistle doesn't attract their attention. It is amazing how many stinkboaters travel at speed with their heads down. A flag on a long pole is good to...

Re: Hello from Scarborough. Adventure Islander

Welcome Matto. The AI has the capability to travel great distances. Your range is immediately extended. Plenty of AI owners here, and you will meet some. BTW, the Adventure is quite stable in Adventure mode only, depending on your skills levels of course. I regularly paddle a yellow Adventure in the...

Re: The PFD you have when you don't really need a PFD.

PFD 2 for me all the time. ....small swell, big swell. I subscribe to the theory that if it can happen, it will, and if you are dazed, sick or injured you need to be afloat regardless, without user input. A second question I have been toying with is - Does a PFD 3 make it impossible to paddle/fish i...

Re: Darwin: Nice brassy and first encounter with a stonker t

Great Brassy Tristan. Bet you didn't land that in five minutes. I assume the tuna was a northern Bluefin (longtail) tuna. Try Cav's suggestion with a 3- 4" white or blue glimmer paddletail, on a TT Extreme Headhunter jighead (designated 3/0 XH on the Lure World website.....they are very strong and v...

Re: BASIC PADDLING SKILLS

Now for some silly stuff. This type of sea kayaking if known as 'rock gardening'. It demands a very high skill level and a bomb proof roll. There is also considerable risk of damage to kayaks and paddlers......posted here for entertainment value only, and to show that from a good grounding in basic ...
