Re: Customers using Social Media as a threat

HA, How's this for a coincidence.. One of our stores just called me to say that a man came in and put a cash deposit on a Pedalfish 13 (container coming in on Monday). Less than an hour later his wife came in asking what her husband had purchased. The store manager showed her and she freaks out sta...

Re: Customers using Social Media as a threat

Not meaning to perpetuate Anton's scenario and everyones suggestions to date, but if I sign an agreement of any kind and that agreement (including the salesperson) clearly makes me aware that my deposit (whatever it may be called) is non-refundable, then I recognise that I need to take full responsi...

Kaskazi fishing ski with added sail

Finally finished the fit out of a .8 sq m Sea Dog sail on my Kaskazi Dorado II fibreglass fishing ski. Thinking of making it adaptable for my double SIK as well. The pic below is from my first test drive on one of my local rivers to get a feel for how it operates. Unfortunately on the first day (riv...

Some clearer shots and some onboard sailing action video would be great.

Re: First Kayak - Glide Reflection

I've got a different style anchor but I guess I could do that with the rope connected to the bottom of the anchor and then zip tie the top hole? Does the chain just help it to dig in? Any suggestions for a reel? Hi Birdie, The chain reduces the drag on the anchor. Strong drag will often set your an...

Re: First Kayak - Glide Reflection

Nice rig. Much fun to come. More mods to come too. You might want to make use of the easy release hole at the top of your anchor. Search this forum to find out how it works. Pdfarrell has a good setup in the pic he posted here.... http://www.kfdu.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=44289&p=367191&hili...

Re: The Sun REALLY COULD KILL you, heres my story

Thanks for the excellent graphical share Jamie. It was a hard way to learn the lesson but 'learned' none the less. Nice to see you are now an ambassador for 'complete' sensible protective clothing as an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure . In this case, perhaps literally 'saving a pound...

Re: Shark shield or not to shark shield??

Hundreds of surfers out daily. Multiply that by 7 days in a week. Busier on the weekends and summer. The odd fatal attack with thousands in the water even just over a weekend. Legs dangling, peeing in the water, wetsuits, splashing. We get sharks all the time where I live. Shark shield on a kayak -...

Re: Pa storage ideas

Nice job Paul. Showing some real talent there. Beyond my abilities for sure. I use a 6 foot blow mould table from Bunnings and added castors to the legs. Similar versatility. Works a treat to pull it out (from my shed mess) and put it away again easily. Ideal when needing to work on the hull or even...
