  1. Out this afternoon

    I will be finishing work at 1.30 today and I'm planning a little trip out for the afternoon/evening, Looks like a nice tide for a bit of drifting around we will be scratching around the piers and rocks on ch6. Mike
  2. WIFI reciver/booster

    Hi Charlie I use an external Wi-Fi adaptor with a couple of antennas on it. Which is plugged into my laptop to boost the network when I'm out. Very cheap around £20.00 for a branded item. However if he wants connect it to the van and transmit the Wi-Fi for say a tablet or multiple devices it's slightly different. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F292441930026 Here is the link for a kit that would do what I think he wants. There are a lot of cheap units out there but this a popular mainstream brand used by a lot of trades. A lot of my customers use this brand and its well supported. Mike.
  3. Madness is out

    I have a new VHF to install with antenna. And I need a bit of warm weather to repair a nasty scratch on the gel coat when putting it on the trailer in the summer, the yard was putting the trailer to far into the water and the boat floated right over the rear rollers that centralise it Also I'm trying to get it to the dealer to have a new engine fitted but I cant get away from the office atm due to staff shortages.
  4. Stering cable

    is it a Teleflex type or old style cable on a roller system? Teleflex style mounts to a helm and you just need to make sure you match the cable and helm size correctly.
  5. Cod Competition - Sunday 19th

    The weather made it a cracking day out even though the cod where thin on the ground, We had a good run of whiting noting over 2lb but big enough to be picky and return the smaller ones, until the tide turned and it went dead. But a small strap conger and a nice smooth hound made it a great day out for us, And the bonus prize from the weigh end from Andy! Well done winners!
  6. Smoked Cod

    Meh just reading this thread is making me hungry! But you know when you have seen too much game in the house when you start trying to make pheasant curry!
  7. Mariner 50 HP

    I would suggest you check the part number on the unit you have fitted. But have a look here, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-Mercury-Mariner-Starter-Solenoid-2-Stroke-Outboard-89-850187T1/263267710353?epid=1916147440&hash=item3d4bfa7591:g:Hv8AAOSwrOtZsDZx If you cant find anyone local I would suggest you give the above company a call, they helped me get a new carb for a merc outboard, I would drop them an email or a call to check the part matches yours. Mike
  8. Mariner 50 HP

    Sounds like a bad cable live or earth maybe from the battery, Once you have checked the connections I would also check for a fuse under the cowling, I had a merc 2 stroke that blew the 20amp fuse and that killed the ignition and trim, until i replaced it. It had corroded inside the fuse holder tiny bit of water ingress got to it. Also make sure the fuse holder has not pulled apart if its the barrel type with glass blow fuses. You should also have a main fuse in the loom some where near your ignition switch. Mike
  9. Ray Competition

    Nothing for sea Jay, our daughter decided she wanted a day out, So after a steam up the swash I decided it was a little too lumpy for her to enjoy the day. So we went inshore to fish the harbour, and this turned up just off Lake pier.

    Sea Jay Sunday Mike and Clare.
  11. Trim Tabs - Orkney Pilothouse 20

    Thanks Brian ill see you tonight.
  12. Trim Tabs - Orkney Pilothouse 20

    I have just installed a set of smart tabs on an explorer elite, force 4 where as cheap as buying online if you go down that route. Simple to install and made a noticable difference to bow rise. However I dont have a list to adjust for, I've read many different views on the tabs and in the end decided to just have a go, Some of the forums can get a bit heated over the auto tab vs manual tab.
  13. Looking at a new boat
