cuddlescooper « Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:59 pm » Was funny. First time I saw it, it had one tyre gone. Came back and the second tyre went.
Hemi « Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:18 pm » Maybe just someone being nice?? Left a trailer there for people to help themselves to parts... Good one
Once Bitten « Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:10 pm » Was it dumped or stripped? Saw it there with no tyres on Sunday night.
nomad « Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:13 pm » Who dumped the trailer at Dinah ramp?
seano « Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:10 am » Nice- good luck

Scottie5.3 « Mon Aug 24, 2015 2:19 pm » spent a overnighter down the perons for some awesome jewie and tuna action, will do a post when I get pics through... gotta start taking photos lol
hobbit « Mon Aug 24, 2015 1:41 pm » Thanks going to have to go Sunday now. Bigger tides
dannett « Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:56 am » One thing to note as we get later into the year the swell will start to push in over sand bar at the mouth of buff creek especially in the afternoons. The waves will break on the shallower sand and this can make getting back into the mouth a bit treacherous. You don’t want to get stuck on the sand with the waves coming over the transom.
dannett « Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:48 am » Oh, 7am on the rising tide, yeah, go for it. Worst case you miss the channel and in a few minutes you float back off again.
dannett « Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:44 am » Yeah 3.9 should be fine but bear in mind that when it is about that height the edges of the channel will still be covered over. If you do come out of the channel there probably won't be more than 300 mm of water.
NathanL « Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:40 am » 3.9m is fine - hold it flat and trim it right out and you'll be apples. 3.5 is getting pretty dodgy and I can't do it in my boat. bit hard to pick the channel if its overcast just keep that in mind if you don't know it that well there
hobbit « Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:31 am » Can any one tell me if I can get out of buffalo creek tomorrow at 7am on a 3.9 low
NathanL « Mon Aug 24, 2015 10:09 am » we were out that way - which direction off the NW vernon? we probably had our eyes closed, would love to see some whales out
ben_fisho « Mon Aug 24, 2015 9:54 am » Spotted a pod of 4 whales out off the north west vernon on sunday morning.
dannett « Mon Aug 24, 2015 9:48 am » Darwinblue keep your eyes open and you may also find them within Darwin harbor too.
chezasnt « Mon Aug 24, 2015 8:05 am » Anyone brave the Gunn Pt Rd on the weekend ?
Bellfish « Sun Aug 23, 2015 11:53 pm » going crabbing cause thats pefectly normal in the middle of the night
Brendan « Sun Aug 23, 2015 11:35 pm » Stonker goldie today... 76cm but very fat
Darwinblue « Sun Aug 23, 2015 10:24 pm » Whale watching off Blaze today....spent nearly an hour watching it rolling, sun baking and pppffffttttiing...not much wrong with the NT environment
cuddlescooper « Sun Aug 23, 2015 6:56 pm » Out sid eof the low tide mark. So basically any where that will dry is excluded. no access to rivers and creeks . From headland to head land.
rumluck « Sun Aug 23, 2015 5:34 pm » tiwis... they state inter tidal areas are closed on the northern sides. how far from shore do you have to stay?
dannett « Sun Aug 23, 2015 2:45 pm » Yeah I think there was two of them, one got very beached and made a huge commotion. I saw what looked like a 40cm barra exit the water by about a metre, I think it may have been thrown by one of the dolphins.
cuddlescooper « Sun Aug 23, 2015 1:19 pm » Yer they often beach them selves in the flats in the harbor chasing barra and diamond scale mullet.
jeffish « Sun Aug 23, 2015 1:09 pm » seen it at Lee pt once , about six of them herding bait fish up on the shore ,cool to watch
dannett « Sun Aug 23, 2015 12:41 pm » Was up in little howard yesterday and saw a dolphin come up on the sand bar in about a foot of water chasing fish. Anyone seen that before?
jeffish « Sat Aug 22, 2015 8:20 pm » credit cast lure revealed on billabong barra post,,,secret weapon
balthasar832 « Sat Aug 22, 2015 7:51 pm » Does anyone know what is the earliest time you can get into nightcliff boat ramp is? I plan on going tomorrow morning around 6am
fishingnt « Fri Aug 21, 2015 11:15 pm » anyone own an ocean master 451?? Looking for feedback on the hull and how it rides in rough swell / chop. .
balou « Fri Aug 21, 2015 8:26 pm » Reading the tio policy now nomad...too many beers might need to give it another crack sober. Bit confusing at first glance.
Scottie5.3 « Fri Aug 21, 2015 7:50 pm » anyone else going to dundee for the weekend?
nomad « Fri Aug 21, 2015 7:31 pm » We will not pay for: b) loss or damage to fishing gear or water ski equipment unless: i) it was being used on your boat at the time of loss or damage; ie no accidental loss or damage
Fruity « Fri Aug 21, 2015 5:32 pm » Fishing gear is covered by TIO, page 18 of PDS
Melv « Fri Aug 21, 2015 1:16 pm » So who was the FFF'er sitting high and dry on the mud at the mouth of Croctrap Creek yesterday. Come on, fess up.........
jeffish « Fri Aug 21, 2015 8:20 am » nice drop of raim at leanyer this morning
nomad « Fri Aug 21, 2015 7:43 am » i was justtrying to get everyone to check their policies. club m cover your fishing gear and tio dont. Some home and contents cover your gear, some dont. some dont cover it while you are using it. ive had fishing gear covered while fishing but that was when i lived in tassie and aami covered it. check things, dont get caught out by getting the cheapest policy and find that the things you thought were covered arent and you are down the drin for mega bucks
balou « Fri Aug 21, 2015 12:22 am » Good point. Was nomad talking about insuring the boat then fishing gear. I better check my policy with tio on both.
cuddlescooper « Fri Aug 21, 2015 12:17 am » That doesn't help if the boat sinks Balou.
balou « Thu Aug 20, 2015 10:18 pm » Doesn't fishing gear get covered by home contents? Bosses house got done and they paid out 7-8k
Hemi « Thu Aug 20, 2015 6:53 pm » Just returned from 4 days up the coburg.. Dam sick of catching fish..!!!
nomad « Thu Aug 20, 2015 3:37 pm » I told TIO that i had advised the FFF of the problem. they changed their policy for ME straight away. They still dont cover fishing gear though. Funny how a bit of persuasion can get things done.
jonr « Thu Aug 20, 2015 2:13 pm » in regard to insurnce if you fihs off shore are are not covered by TIO. I found GIO to be the chepest and have the best coverage. I had a boat written off with them last year and got full pay out with no arguments
balou « Thu Aug 20, 2015 1:24 pm » Pm back old mate
jabsy « Thu Aug 20, 2015 10:11 am » Cheers Nomad, I remember that from when i signed up, however I thought I asked them and the Tiwis were covered as part of the mainland? This was pre-buyout and I would have been talking to a local...
nomad « Thu Aug 20, 2015 9:02 am » Warning – check your insurance policy today. Those using TIO should check their policy wording asap. I recently went with them for my new boat but their wording stated that they only cover to a max of 40 kms from the mainland. If you go to the tiwis etc, YOU ARE NOT COVERED. I had them change the exclusions to include 200kms from the mainland but when I went to insure my other boat, they said that the wording they included in the 1st policy doesn’t cover me. Yes they are cheaper than club marine but they don’t cover the same things. Im pulling the pin with tio NOW and going with CM today. Check your policies
dannett « Thu Aug 20, 2015 8:22 am » Or at very least you'd now have a flat bottomed punt.
dannett « Thu Aug 20, 2015 8:21 am » Well Scottie if you welded a water tight bulkhead in under the sealed floor of an ally boat and strategically cut the boat at that point I reckon you could drive it around too. As for dropping it from a crane.... well I reckon she'd be farked.
