Re: wtb gopro or action cam

Hey All the stuff below I brought but never used. Put it together, turned it on and then waited to go out fishing. Decided that I cant be bothered with the whole video thing now so might as well sell it on to someone who needs it :). Ive got one of these http://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/LWCMHNNHD/...

Re: Kayak fisherman apparently killed in Maui shark attack

I watched mythbusters and the sharks were very interested in fish blood but not human blood.

Be safe out there

Re: Any mechanics with access to Vehicle service records database (Honda)?

If it has a towbar without service history I woudlnt touch it. If it has no towbar and no service history depends on the kms :) Always a gamble buying a second hand car.
