Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

GB, let's assume I'm the most ignorant person you'll ever meet... Ever. That'll make this next statement seem less "stupid" and more "humor the childlike person". When you're out there with no inboard, running on the big batts... what your "oh sh!t I'm Jaysen" recovery plan? on board petro generato...

Re: Anyone Fishing?

I haven't fished much this year. Been busy with work, but I thought you might enjoy this. An old bloke fishing for his favorite species (barramundi) by himself!

Re: BarraMan's Mangusta 21 barraboat in Townsville, AUS

I thought you might find this video interesting! This is my favourite barramundi fishing spot - the beautiful Hinchinbrook Channel in North Queensland, and this is what my boat looks like running up the boat passage at 40 kts. In the first part of the video, where there are some ripples on the water...

Re: Batch failures

I used West System epoxy and hardener and their measuring pumps only, for my build. Never had a batch failure.

Re: Alaska Pictures

Out driving around today I came across three trees that had 30-40 eagles in them. Did not have my camera with me and when I got back with it this is all that were still there.

That does look great! 8) In the right hands, the belt sander is a real work saver- in a regular guy's hands, it can create a real mess. Knowing when to put down the tool is usually a lesson learned the hard way. :help: I bought a belt sander - used it once - put it back on the shelf - never touched...

Re: Amazing efforts to go fishing

It never ceases to amaze me to what lengths and expense one goes too, just to catch a fish. I build a GV15, and trailer, buy a 40hp motor, I licence the trailer, I have a COF certificate for the boat, I get certified as a skipper, I then buy the equipment to catch the fish, I upgrade to a 4 wheel d...
