Re: Land Camping on a Careel 18/22

As said above Davie, we use a small step ladder for the stern when travelling anywhere, it's a single step job. You'd need bigger (at least 4-5 steps) for side access & then you've got to carry the bigger about with ya too ! One of the boats that I bought to refurbish did come with a white hard ...

Re: Seized centre board

That's the thing isn't it, what's causing the seizure ? Rust can cause swelling for example. I've seen a couple of CBs stuck over the years but, nothing that couldn't be first cleaned out at least a bit & then worked free even using some cooking oil or similar plus the use of a pursuader with ha...

Bob there are plenty of phone contact details in Contacts & Officials, take your pick for assistance if required.
Certainly if it best suits you some there are from Qld, I suspect you're from Gold Coast.
