Re: FS: Jet ski

That was quick! We’re looking at boats now for the same reason. In an ideal world, I’ll keep the ski as it’s such an efficient fish hunter, but that is to be negotiated [emoji3] I love the ski man, best solo (or group) fishing platform IMO. A good step up from the kayak in most situations. But not ...

Re: FS: Jet ski

What sort of $$$ are you after? I have no idea what jetskis are worth! That will probably be my next move though. Like kayaks, there is a range. I've spent over 30k on this one, obviously not looking for that much. Probably 23-24k or so. If you're interested, I can put up some pics and details??

FS: Jet ski

Just putting it out there, anyone interested in changing over to a Jet Ski? Looking at a boat now, better for the kids.
2016 Yamaha FXHO with about 100 hours. Fully setup for fishing. Let me know if anyone needs more details.

Re: Orere Point Parking

Why would you (someone) refuse to move your car. Being an ass for the sake of it?
Not realizing that you're blocking people is one thing, purposely blocking is something else quite different

BTW, that's directed at the person, not you lol

Re: Bad Back

Sore backs suck big time. When I started kayaking, I was dead lifting it onto the roof. Not only hurt my back more, also tore both rotorcuffs (sp?) in my shoulders. Switching to a trailer saved my back, shoulders, car roof and boot (no more stinking stuff). That along with better paddling technique ...

Re: Where are we with fish finders?

I got someone to do it for me. Mounted on the cup holder, on an SS custom bracket. I bought it with the GT51M transducer, and had that mounted on the ride plate on the ski. Been up to 60km/h and still reading the bottom. Can put some pics up later if you want. I think Mad Mike has the exact same set...

Re: Where are we with fish finders?

I have a 9 inch Garmin Echomap 95sv which does everything you've listed there, including #1

The only thing, it doesn't take Navionics, they have their own map (which is good) PLUS quickdraw (which I love!!!)

Re: Transducer cable Garmin echo 100- Help!

I'm crap at that sort of thing, so I'd be looking at replacing either the transducer for about $120, or upgrading the unit completely. A Lowrance Hook 3x is like $160 and you can go up from there http://baymarineelectronics.co.nz/fish-finders-1/transducers-accesories/garmin-77-200-transom-4-pin.html...

Re: Blue Mako F40 Profish vs Cobra Marauder

Yeah just depends what you want it for - the odd casual trip or serious fishing. IMO, to some degree at least, you'll get what you pay for. Check the guarantee times for both - I think Viking for example, have 30 years or something?? Ok, I did it myself as I was interested. Blue Mako: Two year retur...
