  1. Well I got the hammerrite on today, pretty easy to apply and the hammered finish is quite fun to watch going off. If I’m feeling enthusiastic next winter I might try doing the whole trailer. Thanks for the suggestion
  2. My main was a PITA when I first got it, 6 monthly spray with dry glide fixed half the issues overnight.
  3. Harry, that says to apply direct to rust...presume you can apply to non-rusted as well? I’ve also been told White Knight Rust Guard is good...at $200 a can you’d hope so!
  4. I’ve got a few rusty spots on my trailer to clean up (mostly under the plank used to walk on when retrieving). I figure a good grind back to good metal and then some primer/paint. What’s the best product to use for this? I want to do it once, so not worried about saving pennies. Thanks
  5. Their lead time is 2 weeks at the moment apparently. I get the feeling they are keen for business as I've had two follow up emails in as many weeks.
  6. I've still not bought mine, I have a quote etc just waiting for more certainty from this COVID drama. Hopefully in the next few weeks. The dollar certainly isn't helping either.
  7. I've been playing it for years. It's pretty good, although sometimes gets frustrating people driving their boats straight towards you to force a penalty.
  8. Yeah new carb is my backup plan. The screw has a needle on the end of it. Presume it’s of a special size.
  9. Thought it might be worth asking here just in case...after a high idle screw for a early Honda BF100 outboard carb. Apparently not made by Honda anymore. Looking elsewhere for alternative parts but just in case someone has an old one lying around in bits.
  10. Spare a thought for us southerners, we’ve yet to have two days of consistent weather...still waiting for spring to arrive.
  11. Hard to see in the pic, if it has a lock mechanism then that will be it.
  12. I’ll have to grab one when I’m at the yard next.
  13. My Bonito has a wire topping lift down with a length of line that attaches to the boom. The height is adjusted by two clips and is a pain to use as it only gives two positions. After looking around the other Bonitos in the yard, they all have a wire/line combination as well. However, each has a block on the end of the boom that the line runs through. These blocks have a locking system, kind of like a cam cleat or something built into them which allows adjustment of the topping lift by simply locking off the line. I’ve been searching far and wide for one of these blocks, but without k
  14. Yep. That’s after taking it to a shop who sat on it for 2 months to tell me it won’t start.
  15. Well I’ve been running it all morning in the drum and it seems to be running pretty well. Even idling in gear which it never used to do properly. Next step is to give it a good run around the harbour. I guess the morale of the story is, keep cleaning the carb. Thanks for the help guys.
