Hi SS,

In the top right corner you'll see your forum handle, click that, then click User Control Panel, then Profile on the top tabs, then Edit Account Settings on the left menu and you can change your password from there :y:

Nah can't say as I am - well not while I'm typing this in - I'm also on a Macbook too - but I'll look into it - thought it might be an ad but then on the reply/post/pm pages there aren't any adverts so can't be that... :(

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 ...

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...

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...

Re: Complete Yak Fishing Newby
