Re: What's it worth?

As I have learnt this year after failed attempts to get offers anywhere near our asking price ( and supposed value) on our house. It is only "worth" what someone is prepared to pay for it. Sorry not to be more helpful, :(

Re: roof rack selection

I always tie front and back, stops the seesaw effect that buckles the entire roof of my lightweight Japanese people mover. ( I added my own tracks to the roof to give more distance to the cross bars than when using the standard clamp on position)

Re: StarPort TracMount Kit

316 ( i think not 304) stainless, the "nuts" that slide in the track, plus the running around finding the bits to DIY. I have done both. $15 is OK, IMO, :)
I also have a son in an engineering firm that has helped me out, too.

You have been busy. :D
Mental on here is the go to guy for decals. ;)
Those cheap as caribiner type clips will not save your rods in a decent turtle. Small SS ones are easily bought from Mitre10 or Burnsco or Smart Marine etc, good idea to leash everything though ( except your gaff) :y: :y:

Re: I Hate The Wind

It could be worse. You could be home off work during the week with the perfect alignment of weather and moon phase, but unable to paddle due to recoverying from surgery, only gazing out the window in frustration. :(

Re: Strayline reels

It is the rod that does the work. As long as your chosen reel has a smooth drag and can hold the appropriate amount of line, it does not matter.
