Re: 10 Knots Zero Swell Conditions

NN is ok in 10kts but as said wind against the tide can make it unpleasant, especially as the tide motors through there so be cautious, I use Wind Predict and if Destin's weather channel is working I often check this too. http://www.destin.co.nz/weather/ its very handy.

Re: Lowrance Hook 4 older model

Yeah I used a low capacity sd card but as it’s not reading the maps card either sorta think it has to be the card reader issue.

Re: Paddle pants

Yeah I was looking at a similar style of salopette / overall version also.
NZ Sailing sell the ones you have but I was hoping to spend a little less hence looking at the gul Ballistic.

Re: Paddle pants

Been looking at NZ Sailing, prices seem excellent, any feedback welcome, had some rasdex pants and these have lost all their waterproofing qualities, good for keeping the sun off tho!

Re: Need kayak electrical fittings/ grommet

I needed something similar and Burnsco sold the index brand which were perfect for my FF install.

Re: Kohi - Monday August 27 (video added)

Blimey sounds like some journey you have been on chap. All the very best for your recovery, sorta worried now that my NN catches will be affected by the "destin effect", so recover fully of course, but maybe best you only have an occasional fish mish or perhaps we introduce a QMS for just for you....

Hatch Question Prowler 4.3

Hi folks - after a blissful Sunday am at NN picking up a few nice fish and a surprisingly quiet boat ramp and covering a huge amount of ground (well for me anyhow) due to a super fast outgoing tide/current, I got back to the beach to see that the T bar where the hatch attaches to the yak has complet...

Extrasport Paddle top

Hi there - my Extrasport paddle top has pretty much done its dash, been awesome but now the seals around the seams are beginning to come away, plus it has a few holes from fish hooks and the odd snapper spine. One of the things I really liked about it was it had a chest pocket with a built-in key la...
