Had the same problem with my mat. Fixed it by using a piece of aluminium angle. Just have to line it up and drill some small bolt holes in it.
It has to be in the boat to count!

yea, mine broke with the help of a tuna last year, i figured id buy another one when i got some spare money, but by the looks of it i wont bother. the aluminium angle idea sounds like it might be a better investment.

Use another bit of ally angle( or a strip) and sandwich the mat between them, a smear of silicone on each side of the mat then drill it and bang in a few rivets.......should work :wink:

G'day Harmsey,

Karen reckons that there are about another four lots at OZBREW Millner for you to pick up when you get the chance.

cool will drop in again on the weekend :mrgreen:

a few people had made arrangments to drop off at a later date which is fine but i will send a pm to all those who havent paid up soon to see if they are still interested. i think we have enough paid up competitors to make it very interesting now. add to that the prizes put up but BARRABASE (Geoff Corry), Ozbrew, Fish Hard Reel services (Justin)and a few FFF members who put in much more then required (Rossco,Blinky :wink: ) it gunna be a good result for all. very surprised at the lack of march fish so far??? im sure there are a heap of barra in the closset just waiting to be posted. :wink:

will have a leaderboard up and running before the end of the month. probably and excel sheet of some sort. anyone an expert on excel????

leader board sounds awesome... make it alot easier than going through trying to add it up in your head :lol: looks like the field is still pretty close, not much in it.. i reckon this is gonna go right down to the wire!!!! :clap:

your doing a great job harmsey keep up the good work..

one question, you didnt do the results from last month... barralistic came in trumps with the metery. who got the mystery length :mrgreen:
