It used to be if you ticked the check box the site opened to new posts automatically.

Re: Paynesville

Please note also.
Gippsland Ports are cracking down on people over staying on public jetties. Probably understandable there’s been a trailer sailor sitting at the King Street ramp in the red section for two weeks now no one on it just left there is asking for problems

Re: Mponr

Fair enough. Clear Mast head lights should not have been on if
Sailing. I thought the article was referring to navigation lights on top of the mast.

Re: Mponr

Re mast head navigation lights. It is recommended that yachts use mast head
Port and starboard lights when sailing so the sails do not obscure them. It’s in the
Regulations. Also they are easy to see if their is a swell running

Re: Metung facilities upgrade

I can't believe that you are complaining. The lakes are one of the few places imt Australia that you don't have to pay to launch. It's us the ratepayers who pay for the facilities that you are complaining about.

We'll I new that my post would be controversial.. But the point is the attitude of yachts verses power boats does not do either side any good. I am sure we have all seen yacht skippers do stupid things just as much as power boat skippers. Their was even a certain t.s club that actually advised its ...

Re: Gippsland Lakes - Erosion!

I don,t comment that much on here as I am fortunate to have a foot in both camps (yacht and power boat) how ever this constant abuse re stink boats has got to be looked at. Show me a trailer sailer with out a motor, usually a two stroke. Also all yachts seem to forget that when they get stuck on the...

Ipads/iPhones

When using Navionics on my iPad after a while the program closes down. To activate it again you have to open the slide bar.
There must be a way to keep it running all the time but I can not find the control

Re: Putting diesel in a tank previously used for petrol

Hi
As long as you place some diesel in the tank and shake it about if possible before fiting it it should be fine.The important thing to remember is to fit a high quality filter to the tanki before running the engine.
