Re: AHB 11 Dec

Yes I was lucky it wasn't a boat. I normally see things coming and the Ferries seem to keep their distance. To the credit of a fullers Ferry, as I got sorted and released from the rowing enthusiasts, a Ferry hove to, near me and enquired after my health. After I reassured them that I was OK, I went ...

AHB 11 Dec

Well, another eventful morning, no fish unfortunately, though I did get a few enquiries on the Orange Slider with the disco eyes. I got out at dawn and found that I'm obviously doing this for the excitement. I was just getting my Fishfinder sorted, and paddling around seeing where I could drop a bai...

Re: Is a sub-$500 set-up worth it or save a bit more?

I just got a Garmin Striker Plus 7sv and I'm really happy with it. I started out looking at a 4" Garmin and I did some months of research n comparisons. My impressions: At any particular price point, Garmin is better than Lowrance or others. I decided on not worrying about charts, because even the o...

Re: Roof Rack Set up advice

JMHO, I got a cheap set of square bars. I put the 'yak upside down on it, i.e. gunwhales on the bars. I use a pair of jandals cut in half (so 4 pieces) to prevent injury to the 'yak where the bars are, a couple of ratchet tied downs and Bob's yer uncle. Been at highway speeds to Taupo n back, with a...

Re: Free to good home Humminbird 535

It occurs to me, I'm being a bit spartan. I want to gift this Fishfinder on, in the spirit which it was gifted to me, so, I will, faff around with postage and such. Anyone who would like this Fishfinder, please message me and I'll NZpost it anywhere in NZ. This has a lot of life left in it, and If y...

Yes, thanks for that. Events have conspired against me and I'm not able to use the Kayak until the weekend or next week, so luckily the All Clear has set already, and is good, to go.

Well, having bit the bullet and assembled, many many pesos, to purchase a new fish finder, here's the install. This may be of help, to those who are contemplating doing likewise.
