Re: Tinnie Creek 08/10

well done mate, always worth being tide at work to fit in some fishing!!
i used the canoe ramp the other week and just beside the road bridge another trip, there quite muddy and thought to myself i would use the boat ramp from now on. always a trade off isn't there!!!

Re: Mirage 180 Drives now available to purchase

i purchased a new PA14 with the 180 drive, this is the first mirage drive i have owned and used. the amount i use reverse on the water has me wondering how you managed without it for so long. this would be an upgrade you won't regret!

Re: new kayak help

hey mate, don't have that model. have the double which gets bashed about the creeks with my son and myself, i also use it solo in the centre position. for a cheap kayak the strength of the hull is good! i think the dragon kayak is the better of the cheaper range of kayaks
