    Magnet

    Just to ask if any of you are in the catering business and have access to 20oz paper cups? These are usually about 90mm diameter. They would solve a number of issues re Magnet packaging and delivery. Tapered and easily parted from the frozen product. Slightly insulating to keep the

    Magnet Supplies

    Hi chaps. To let you all know 'The Magnet' will be in production again soon, so time to give those bream a bashing. Currently I have about 100 kgs in stock. Hope all chaps and chapess' who wanted to be in on the free trial have some already. If not, the next three days is you're chance to come forward.E-mail or IM. My new freezers arrive this week so storage should go up to 350-400kg. Let me have your firm ideas on package size. I've got the notes from previous comments but I know you will really start thinking once you're using the stuff. 'Tight Lines'

    Electrical Problem Mariner 60 2 Stroke

    It's electrical for def. fuel is new, pipes flushed. I have checked for spark at the plugs and there's nothing, so it has to be primary electrical system somewhere???
  8. Started up my outboard for its regular tank run last week, ALL FINE! Tried the very next day to give it a longer run and wouldn't fire at all. No spark from any of the cylinders . Any ideas?

    Magnet

    There's another wedge of Magnet around at the moment if any members didn't get their trial pack from Martin. Also a few more small ones for the Weymouth ankle biters Billy. Anyone got a freezer or two to sell or pass on? They don't have to be pretty.... Just need to work! My 13.5 packed up... messy job As and when you use Magnet, let me know how it goes. I know it's early yet but any info is good

    Orkney or what?

    Well guys. Went to see an Orkney Day Angler 19+ yesterday. Quite a beast compared to my 17 Flyer. Who has experience of the Day Angler 19 and what can you tell me. I really need to know about the inboard version. This one has a 78hp Volvo Penta and Volvo leg. Looks a bit of a beast to launch. Also this one had some bumps and scrapes along the keel and stabilisers that the present owner has just painted over rather than having them fixed properly first! There was a drip or two of water oozing from a couple of these. Any comments? Also to cover up he had fitted a mild steel keelson band. Inside the engine bay you could see the odd star crack in the gel coat obviously were the boat had been bottomed out on the mooring. Comments from the wise please.

    Orkney or what?

    The guy selling this Orkney claims not to have had it afloat. He says he bought it as a 'do-up-er' with a view to getting some fishing in, but his business commitments have prevented him continuing. The engine has apparently been rebuilt by Volvo after going tight whilst left on a mooring for nearly four years unused. New hydraulic hoses, starter, recon alternator, serviced Volvo SX leg. Above the waterline it ain't too bad. (Knackered bow roller).

    Looks like this idea must have been in my vault of useful tips for some time. Just didn't register that it was available commercially. I'll find an industrial supplier of the net tube. It

    Let the ideas flow!!! You can use a smaller version of the plastic net tube they use for protecting bottles in transit. Suggest about 30-50mm expanded, and as long as you want to cut it. You need an extra swivel or stopper on the hook snood. Slip the tube up the hook length and use a cable tie to secure above the stopper. Fill the bag from the hook end and tie off with string or cable tie. This gives you options in any tide (choosing the right size), prevents tangles as it is rigged in-line, and drops the sent right over your hook bait. Presto Almost weed free if neatly rigged and collapses as it dispenses if the bottom tie isn

    Groundbait ..... again

    Well chaps I've got a new supply of fish magnet that perhaps some of you would like to try. Have to say it works quite well for me. but I've only used it under few conditions thus far. Feel free to email me if you wish to know more or try some. Bream are on the way!

    Groundbait ..... again

    OK chaps I'll try to have a weigh up to see what there is, and in what sized packages. This will be a bit rough and ready for the trial period as I don't want to invest in pretty boxes at all, and the right size and shape boxes only when you guys tell me what is convenient. The value needs to be in the fish you catch not in the smelly box you throw away . I have 5 x 1kg and 2 x 2.5 kg + a 10kg booked for the Weymouth ankle biters. the rest are between 10-20 and a magnum 30kg for the 'Heavy session' Don't forget that the larger the block (shape dependent) melts more slowly weight for weight. Think about the science a bit when deciding your preference Cheers Trevor

  24. Just a thought guys but who out there uses groundbait? Now I know all about the usual comments regarding bringing in every doggy in the bay but given the right situation I've made it work quite well. Thanks again to you all for the replies to my upgrade post. Sole searching legwork and coffer scrapping now

    Which one chaps

    Thanks for the welcome chaps As you can tell I am only at the thin end of enquiries about my potential upgrade, and I've purposely left my options wide open thus far. I've not seriously looked at mooring charges yet, and as an ongoing cost this would have to be balanced with 'C.B.A.' I should say realistically that I'm looking for 20-30 knots to make the best of half days and long evenings. Good sea keeping is a must as I will fish when Captain Pugwash is . The yellow bucket at the stern has been used by several eminent guests! So keep it coming chaps..... I need all the advice you can fire at me. Who knows about the Leeward 18' particularly with Merc In. 1.7TD? I've only seen the pics and would like to get alongside one soon.
