Re: Folding Trailer

Thanks for the feedback guys. Opted for the ezytrailer mainly due to bulldog not getting back to any of my inquiries so I figure they don't want the business to badly. Also on a the plus side they are cheaper shipping by almost $180. Now I just need to decide if I should put a piece of ply on it wi...

Re: Portland, Vic: North Shore Challenge 2019

We owe you blokes a mackerel from Dennis' last Coffs Comp, we can't pay in mackerel, down here b...

Re: WTB. Rudder kit. Ocean Kayak Prowler 13. Sydney

the OK kits are pretty expensive you can get them from the USA. there are cheaper generic alternatives on ebay etc but you would have to check whether they will fit properly. I just bought the pedals and made my own rudder out of alum (helps if you know someone with a laser cutter!). Also the screw...

Re: WTB. Rudder kit. Ocean Kayak Prowler 13. Sydney

Maybe a result of the change in distribution from NZ back to the US? Have they done this? I had no idea... Well, in this case it must be part of equation. Plus avalanche of cheap Chinese knock-offs. Yeah a year or so ago, maybe more all being made stateside now, they have removed one of the rear sc...

Re: Kart for Hobie Tandem Island

No one on here has any ideas ... ho-hum. Looks like KFDU is dead for me now. A TI obviously puts me in the minority now. I think it's time to migrate over to the FB pages for me. Thanks anyway. Some of the beachwheels are rated up to 120kg per wheel, it might be worth getting a quote from a local f...

Re: First fish!

Well done mate, hopefully the first of many. My first of the yak was a flat tie too, I had been casting a metal slug around for ages with no takes I had given up and was having a dig through a lure box to see if I had anything else to tie on and a flattie took it while it was dragging along the bott...

Re: How do you store your catch?

Yep as Labrat said you will probably get a range of replies. For me it depends on the time of year and how long I'll be on the water. Shorter early morning sessions fish just go in the fish hatch until I get back to the launch to fillet them. For longer days, I have a couple of water bottles that li...

Re: any regrets?

As others have said, the ideal is to have both. A few years back I had my first Stealth and an Outback but when we moved to an apartment and one had to go, the Outback was the one that went. If you are not in a position to have both, decide on the fishing you see yourself doing 90% of the time and g...

Re: bought a stealth but have some sounder and paddle questi

With the hatch lids, the velro splash strip was more designed so you can interchange the hatch lids if you wanted to leave the sounder at home, say if you are just heading down for a play in the surf rather than changing just to go through the breakers. Having said that, all of the guys I know with ...

Re: installing a Garmin Striker Plus 7 SV

You can only mount standard sonar and downscan transducers in the hull. For a side scan unit the beam comes out at 170 odd degrees so effectively it is shooting out of the sides of the transducer as well as the bottom. This means it needs to be in the water. You can buy commercial units for hanging ...

Re: Kayak Trolley... Which One?

Peter all of the standard trolleys sink in sand with any kind of weight on them, the wheel diameter and footprint just isn't enough, they plough and then sink on all but tight packed sand. Both C-tug sandtrak and wheelez beachwheels are designed for sand and are the only commercial ones I've come ac...

Re: Mounting 2 Kayaks on Landcruiser Roof

No reason why you can't carry two side by side Peter if your racks are wide enough to accommodate it. With loading you have a few options, you can use the rollers from the rear or there are side loading arms on the market (google rack'n'roll to get an idea) that will also do the trick for you. I wou...
