Re: Good camp sites , northland and eastern B O P

My two picks in the Far North would be Matauri or Whatuwhiwhi Top Ten in Doubtless Bay. Matauri, as Matwould says, is 20min paddle to the Cavallis, and there is excellent fishing there with snapper that are angry enough to eat Kingy live baits, but isn't favourable to easterly quarter winds Whatuwhi...

Re: Vacuum sealers.

I use the Warehouse one with no issues over several years. Re: juicing, put a folded length of kitchen towel in the bag just before the seal to catch them pesky juices and ensure a good, dry seal. Also use it to make a quick and dirty drybag for my phone, and also my flares (put a nail in with the f...

Mental is the man to talk to... Haven't had one of his decals even start to think about falling off yet, and they are very resilient against knocks.

The original decal thread here, pretty pics start around page 4 or 5

Re: Newbie in Auckland

Wee bit of experience weighing in here.... Fishfinders: Yeah, easier but not essential. Bit like TV Remotes made changing the channel easier... I still relish the day I watched my mate paddle straight past a huge workup because he was glued to the TV screen. I was watching the birds off to the side ...

Re: CCTV or hidden camera enquires

Yeah, 5MP isn't great, even in daylight really. H&F have the Moultrie Game Spy 2+ for $150, certainly not top shelf, but can always repurpose as general home security later if you upgrade. Chuck one in the roses by the gate for starters, they're fully self contained, no cables, boxes or power, and I...

Re: New Boat Taking On Water

I used to clip the bungs onto the ignition key as a reminder. Bung on the inside of the hull sounds an odd configuration, unless it's some sort of venturi? I know too well that feeling of bailing without progress after being out in my mates boat when the transom separated from the hull - Ahhh fun da...

Re: CCTV or hidden camera enquires

Any of the trailcams will do what you want. Can be set to record video or stills on motion detection. The cheaper ones will have a glow from the LEDs at night, whereas as you go up in range these become completely invisible. When you say "rubbish" - If it's kleensacks of normal domestic stuff, then ...

Re: Slipperyness?

Personally, I'm of the opinion that in our world far removed from the lycra-clad paddlers and rowers in boats so narrow that one arse cheek goes either side of the hull, the only remotely effective improvement to poly boat performance would be to keep the hull clean of those plastic strings. Only sp...

Re: Hornet FF Install

I'd set it up on a temporary rig and compare results on an identical line, say, between two mooring buoys. Start low, and keep tweaking it up until you lose the periphery, eg mooring blocks at the outer edge of the screen. Then drop it down a smidge to give you optimum sidescan with minimal exposure...
