balthasar832 « Tue Mar 03, 2015 8:14 pm » Eh I bought my SeaJay Tropic 5.35 from them end of 2013 and have been pretty happy with their service. While it's not the same say as you drop it off (like it is with cars), I'm kind of ok with that
scottmac « Tue Mar 03, 2015 7:12 pm » Just saw AM drive past my place with the boat hooked up and his new twin Suzis glowing in the sun. Jealous!
Seastorm « Tue Mar 03, 2015 6:11 pm » Hi all, are you hitting the MiniMini up Andy or whats the plan?
Hemi « Tue Mar 03, 2015 5:43 pm » Hottuna... They must beca sort after item? Ive had 2 knocked off in as many months..

bonefishrobbo « Tue Mar 03, 2015 5:26 pm » Hi everyone my boat trailer regos due and I need an inspection done on my braked trailer. Any suggestions on where to go in Darwin ? Cheers got soaked at Shady yesterday !
Hemi « Tue Mar 03, 2015 5:21 pm » Its a shame scottie that one guy hurt the company so much... I would give BH another go but ive since found somewhere im real happy with.
Scottie5.3 « Tue Mar 03, 2015 4:38 pm » Hopefully won't have any issues like them from now on guys
Wombles « Tue Mar 03, 2015 3:53 pm » BH Marine, when I was living out in Milingimbi I had a boat trailer through you guys from when the Barge company dropped my boat. Took forever and the wrong trailer was ordered. Can’t drive the boat on it without it slipping off and scratching my hull. Not happy!
Hemi « Tue Mar 03, 2015 3:28 pm » Thats a good start scottie5.3 !! Last time i took my boat there they said theyll do it on a monday.. I finally got it back on the friday... 5 days to service a 30hp???
Scottie5.3 « Tue Mar 03, 2015 12:42 pm » Hey everyone who used to deal with bh marine and stopped due to a certain salesman, that guy is no longer with us. Please feel free to return for great sales and service from now on.
theodosius « Tue Mar 03, 2015 9:04 am » yeah, I'll drop past. bit cheeky to break the window out the front of 4 units. someone's going to hear them one day and not be too impressed!
nomad « Tue Mar 03, 2015 8:09 am » remember that they have to keep it off display for a couple of weeks
siobhan88 « Tue Mar 03, 2015 8:06 am » that sucks!
Once Bitten « Mon Mar 02, 2015 11:56 pm » Theo - keep an eye out at Cashies down the road. May show up!
theodosius « Mon Mar 02, 2015 6:29 pm » a curado, a revo and a leatherman were pinched from my car in Coconut Grove last night
Fish Tank « Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:02 pm » The monsoons back. Weak but it's there.
shaggs « Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:01 pm » I'll let the cat out of the bag for the landbasers,starting to get a few good fish around the culvetts although there's not a lot of baifish around.A few tarpon down Macaddo road.have done best around sunset
anyxcuse « Mon Mar 02, 2015 2:26 pm » Jungle. Easiest is to weight until you retrieve next and let all your rope/cable out.
Hemi « Mon Mar 02, 2015 11:29 am » We did one recently.. In the end we tied the end to a tree and used the rolling weight of 4x4 & trailer to get it right... Sounds crude but worked perfect for our situation.,
Jungle « Mon Mar 02, 2015 10:49 am » Hi, does anyone have a tip for getting tension on a new winch rope? I've tried a few things, but it just buries itself as soon as i try to winch the boat up tight. Cheers.
c9h14n « Mon Mar 02, 2015 1:31 am » Looks like the upper South is about to get filled up.
Swoffa « Sun Mar 01, 2015 8:11 pm » Yeah Jeff. Just got back an hour ago. Worst trip that I have ever had over that way. They have had no rain, no flooding of the McArthur and therefore no fish. I will put up a post tomorrow but have submitted my score for February in the seadogs post
jeffish « Sun Mar 01, 2015 7:56 pm » did you get to KAB
jeffish « Sun Mar 01, 2015 7:42 pm » Gday Swoffa didb you to KAB?
nomad « Sun Mar 01, 2015 10:52 am » Most of what we call swells here are really sea state ie chop. it was forecast to be .9m which is stay at home weather for me
alfie « Sun Mar 01, 2015 6:51 am » Thanks for the info Cuddlecooper. Had though the same. Cheers
jeffish « Sun Mar 01, 2015 1:59 am » yeah jusst read it ,,cool report
Brendan « Sun Mar 01, 2015 1:53 am » Jeffish mate as promised Harbor report now up. Sorry it took a while as I have been flat out at work.
Scottie5.3 « Sat Feb 28, 2015 11:11 pm » Didn't want to be anywhere near there when arvo winds started up
Scottie5.3 « Sat Feb 28, 2015 11:11 pm » Nah mate I was only out till 9.30-10am and called it as it was just poop
Jjones123 « Sat Feb 28, 2015 10:17 pm » Jesus.. The forecast didn't look to bad either. Was that late in the arvo?
Scottie5.3 « Sat Feb 28, 2015 10:12 pm » Yeah mate seriously don't do it lol if it was anything like today the chances of getting near any decent reefs and being able to anchor and hold position are slim to none. I lost a anchor too no idea how just pulled up a chain, but we were going to pull out then go bynoe as it's more sheltered but after the ass of the boat kisses the sand at the ramp I called it a day and straight back to the workshop to strip it and clean, luckily engine didn't go under as was shallow but was bl..dy hairy and she ain't a small boat
Jjones123 « Sat Feb 28, 2015 9:57 pm » poop Scottie, sounds heavy.. I'm going tomorrow or I was till I read this!
Scottie5.3 « Sat Feb 28, 2015 8:55 pm » Really hope the couple of boats I seen out make it back safely as it wasn't fun
Scottie5.3 « Sat Feb 28, 2015 8:54 pm » I went to Dundee today and got smashed for two hours in massive swell and come home after almost sinking boat at ramp, waves breaking over the back of transom filled boat in two waves it was that bad.
pit « Sat Feb 28, 2015 8:38 pm » Any shady reports?
Lats « Sat Feb 28, 2015 6:13 pm » That's the plan. After 6 weeks at work, I'm looking for a break. Got a few ideas up my sleeve, weather permitting
jeffish « Sat Feb 28, 2015 5:33 pm » thats no good,,,wel'll just have to go fishing
Lats « Sat Feb 28, 2015 5:19 pm » Cool. Home in a week and then on the unemployment train
jeffish « Sat Feb 28, 2015 4:58 pm » Got a couple of bazz this morning and another croc stalking, how much fun can you have around here
