Re: changing wheels on cart

Have you considered buying C-tug new and selling your wheeleze secondhand? eBay have a Black Friday 15% discount coming up soon. Use the code PYIPPEE at checkout to get 15% off. For example this should be discounted to around $121.55 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/RAILBLAZA-C-TUG-KAYAK-TROLLEY/17361032...

If you add flotation to the hull, be careful not to interfere with rudder line movement.

Re: need a mods help

I regularly had logout issues on the old forum as well, even writing a short response. Pressing preview sometimes did not overcome the issue. Make it a habit before posting anything: Windows Ctrl-A (select all text in the composition box) Ctrl-C (copy all) If you get logged out and are presented wit...

Re: need a mods help

Many websites offer both encrypted and non-encrypted access. For example, KFDU still works if you use http instead of https. With your KFDU URL in the address bar: - If you see https - no problem. Your connection is secure. - If you see http - change your shortcut to https. - If you see neither, rea...

Re: The Elephant in the Room!

+1 on Tony's logic. If KFDU is intended as a place for ephemeral comment and reports, Facebook is a good choice. If it is intended to be a storehouse of help and information, Facebook doesn't do that anywhere near as well as a bulletin board. One thing Facebook did do was enable me to pick up the te...

Re: STOLEN KAYAK - KingsKraft 11ft - FORSTER/TUNCURRY 18/3

Speaking of securing your kayak. What are those kanulocks like? Are there better options? Ken Anyone who thinks cable is difficult to cut needs to do some research on YouTube.

Re: cheap chinese reels

Waterproof Shimanos start at 5000 size. My thought was your were chasing a smaller reel. The cheapest spinning reel that I am aware of that is well sealed are the Shimano Spheros/Saragosas.

Re: cheap chinese reels

I know someone who used that theory for reels to use tossing lures off a beach (where fine sand finds its way into everything). He bought three cheapies and had been using one for a while. He figured as they failed he had plenty of parts and spare spools for different lines - good logic. I tried his...

Re: Obsessive

I regularly lose many lures to Tailor hitting knots. My record came this year was seven lures in one session. Mostly they hit the trace's FG knot but a couple of times the slice was part way along the leader. You could only guess whether they were hitting leader or the leader was hitting teeth. Thes...
