Thanks Mike, :y:

Haven't been able to find a workaround to replace it as yet.

Sorted: Uniden Voyager clip wanted

I don't suppose anyone has a spare or no longer needed 'belt clip' for a Uniden Voyager kicking around?

Thanks

Some nice condition Snaps in the Bay recently, getting that lovely winter 'grease' on the knife when filleting. :y:

Re: Fish Finder Preservation

You can pick up a Rob Fort FF cover for $40-$50 depending on the size of the head unit.
I frequently get back after a splashy ride and the finder has stayed dry inside - biggest thing is it takes the all the pressure out of the wave impact.

Re: Help struggling getting the Kayak to the water

No doubt the Wheeleez carts glide effortlessly over sand, but you do pay a premium for that luxury. Guy I occasionally fish with has a Hulkin' Hobie, and it's as if the damn thing just follows behind him up the dunes like a loyal dog. Me, I'm heaving and swearing with 30kg on a C-Tug. C-Tugs: I've t...

Re: Need Another Tub

Have a look at the Phoenix Hornet. I have a dodgy wing (damn near useless some days) and have no issues throwing the Hornet around. Does a respectable 4kts long-term cruising (for me) and often do 20+km days. Reasonably dry for me at [cough] 92kg - sounds like you won't even get your heels wet. Was ...

Pack the fishing gear when you come up - I might turn up at the water with one yak too many, BYO paddle though ;)

If you ever make it up as far as Paihia or Keri, bring the sticks - I'd be interested to play with them.

Re: Hi

It is to (a) standard, although it's at the very lowest end of the 'bobbing around' scale. As UrbanAngler says, give it a go and if it doesn't work with you, return. A PFD needs to fit you snugly, and not all off-the-shelf units fit everyone. I do recommend avoiding the inflatable "Horse=collar" one...

Re: Anyone carrying all their tackle in their PFD?

Still have warm air under the well though which'll kill the cold very quickly, and tasty juices dribbling out through the scuppers.
Now, if you lined the well with tinfoil... :lol:

Re: Hi

Welcome along HowToFish :y:
Plenty of fishos in your area, there's also a couple of yakfishing groups there too - womble along one day, plenty of knowledge to be gleaned and to see how others have fitted out.

P13 - Good boat. Still one of my all time favourites.

Re: Anyone carrying all their tackle in their PFD?

Drifting off course a little now... I'd keep the drogue if venturing offshore. If you need someone to come and look for you, it helps keep the search area small (relatively speaking). I haven't used a bottom anchor for over 10 years, but then I don't fish wicked harbour currents. Cut the whole unwan...
