Re: NEW KAYAK FISHING STORE IN NZ

Sorry FoMI think you took my post the wrong way, I was just pointing out as he paddles/peddles a Hobie that NZ already has a Hobie dealer nothing to do with the current retailer/store itself... And having worked in the kayak retail industry for more than a few years now I can tell you that kayaks ar...

Re: Flags- laws/by-laws or just good practice?

I would say "non-mechanically powered vessels of less than six metres in length" means you are excluded with your sub 6m paddle powered kayak... but is peddle powered classed as mechanical, or if you use one of the small electric propeller systems..? I just read the next clause and unless it's just ...

Re: Flags- laws/by-laws or just good practice?

Thanks for that too. Can anyone point to a passage of law or any specific by-law that expressly mandates a flag please? There a guidelines and suggestions but nothing I've read thus far claims it is the law. Hmm seems things may have changed in 2014 with the release of "Navigation Safety Bylaw 2014...

Fantastic reel - I own three Stradic CI4's - never used that rod or braid but look like a good match and at the end of the day that's the price for the reel alone so the rod and braid are in effect free... :y:

Re: Anyone interested in my moulds for centre console???

That's a very cool design well done! Making these is not my game but FYI JO used the same lid on the Tetra so it may fit that model too if someone is looking at the size of the market etc... Or even smarter look at making a second base for it that would mate to a Prowler 13/4.5 then you'd have a hug...

Re: Complete Yak Fishing Newby

Welcome to the forum!

The old adage of try before you buy is the best way to go really, have a chat with the guys at the North Shore Kayak Club, I know they have a few club kayaks you could borrow to take for a spin :y:

Ocean Kayak Ice Box Skin (SOLD)

Ok, time to have a bit of a clear out me thinks starting with this... It's an Ice Box skin that fits the Prowler 4.7 & 4.3 - note it is NOT insulated - I used it for transporting stuff mostly on mothership trips etc but I did use it couple of times in the back of the kayak with frozen bottles of wat...

Re: Yaks for young teens: Mission Catch 290 vs something more 'serious'?

Update direct from T7 regards the one above missing the rod holder: Hi Jason, you were right, the kayak on display in our Nelson store is missing its rod holder, which prevents water from seeping in. Our team noticed that it was missing, and for customer safety decided it was best to use it for disp...

Re: Yaks for young teens: Mission Catch 290 vs something more 'serious'?

The one I saw in T7's Nelson store is in the photos below. The rod holder is a hole opening directly into the hull. The cap is a poor fit for the hole. I could see a lot of water getting into the hull in some conditions That is absolute GOLD! What you see there is the hard rubber gasket/cap they us...
