Re: DIY Composite Watersnake Propeller & Options

Just a recap on this old modified prop thread. Since trimming the 28lb prop in Sept 2016, the motor and prop has done perhaps 150+ hours, and on the dam likely hit about a dozen occasions hit sunken snags and tilted up an over, and chopped thru the occasional small patch of lilies or weeds. Snags hi...

Re: Folding Trailer

kareless1 has an aluminium boat trailer he dismantles for his kayak, the trailer sections then hang on his garage wall. Think it only takes a few minutes to re-assemble the trailer and use, and is a terrific unit. Think he said he bought online and sent from Western Australia Trailer behind his ute ...

Re: Raby Bay, QLD kayak pontoon

reckon you will find it a lot easier to get in the kayak with it in the water, I like the seat to be about knee level with me alongside then just drop into the seat and then lift legs into the yak, from a pontoon or high bank can be bit challenging. Fishing around waterfront homes does sometimes ups...

Re: Perception Swing kayak for sale. North West Sydney

Anthony, FYI engraved on the side near the rear lifting handle is a code number.

The numbers before SW indicate the year it was made, the numbers after SW are that boats own ID number.

Good luck with the sale, a good buy for someone down your way.

Re: Upgrading not sure what one

Of the choices you posted .... reckon the Glide because it is slightly longer and a bit narrower and probably easier to paddle for those reasons.

But consider second had yaks, you might find better yaks for same money.

for quick release, also looks like I dont have a true fishing Yak as I sit a lot lower than the presenter. I have the 3lb fold up legs anchor from my inflatable boat, but have used it only twice so did not notice the knot problem.

Re: Anchor Rope Holder

Then to me you need the rope going thru another loop at the bow with a rope connected to this loop, so that when you want to pull the anchor up, you pull this second rope/loop to get the anchor rope from the bow then wind up the anchor. Comments appreciated The quote above should work OK for you Pe...
