Re: Spotted. TS's for sale on the net.

Okay Peter and Bachus could you please arrange for the bargain boats to be within half an hour of me and all the overpriced boats with no trailer interstate?

Thanks that would be much more convenient.

Re: Cobden to Whitsundays Sept Oct 2018

I have never been Merv.
How long did you go for inc travel?
How many of the days were over 20knts / unsuitable for moving about / uncomfortable at anchor?
Did having a TS help in crowded anchorages or were you competing with shallow draft power boats?

Re: SQL errors getting worse

On a side note all the special formatting for TSP has gone from my viewing of the forum it has retuned to standard phpBB format, did I do or miss something?

Ie all the user icons now on right and has drop down list of short cuts on left rather than across the top etc

Re: Hand Held VHF trickery

Perhaps a bit more umph - volts (car may be up to 15V and charge lead may not regulate) and perhaps current again if not regulated, it is possible to wake some batteries up like this - but the usually go back to sleep again! 12mths seems a short life for a pack, how often did you use it?

Re: Dropping the anchor

So at what point do we give up on all the hauling and install an electric windlass /winch? Keelers have them (weight) and stinkboats have them (got to get to the next snapper quickly) why do so few TS' have electric when we have heavy displacement boats that need a fair bit of holding?

Binks 25 - $12,500 - Hastings VIC A lot of boat for the money. Trailer claimed to be in good condition but looks to be painted and maybe not road legal brake-wise. No doubt a good mast-up storage proposition. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/hastings/sail-boats/trailer-sailer-binks-25-for-sale/11926...

Doing a 'U-eee' on the Yarra River can be done by using both at full lock, just the rudder needs a three or more point turn :)

Re: Electric drum brakes

So, IMO they are only suitable for break back type trailer & shallow draught boat. I have had more than a few occasions when launching/retrieving with waves (usually short and sharp) that cause most of the rear of the trailer to go under at least half of the time - surely they wouldn't survive much...
