I hear that! I do still enjoy a walk in on occasion but the boat just gets you to spots you dream about!

But walking is so good for you, especially when you carry a 20 kg pack for an hour only to find the ledges are unfishable due to the swell and the tide is only half way incoming!

Spent about 14 hrs on my boat yesterday, its not as easy as it looks - I am beginning to wonder if I should have bought a Arancia as the curves on my boat make it difficult to get an even adhesion.
Im taking off to Doubtless on Thu for 4 days with son & friend with rods, dive gear, cray noose & scallop dredge....Tongue
I will put more on when I get back as the tops of the tubes are looking a bit worn from use & and sun exposure. The PVC on the underside of the tubes is in pretty good condition..
Cant wait to get onto the rocks.....

Choice, best of luck Scott on your trip bro, hopefully this wind settles down for you.  When working on boats, nothing is bloody simple... ha.

True this but then sometimes swell can make it too dangerous to land on the rocks by boat where as a walk in is still possible and often the fishing hots up with all the wash from waves etc.

Still take the pack up North just in case the weather turns to rubbish.

Did just that last week to rod holders. Love the place and the day was fine, strong wind and no fish however.

mitre 10 has the bugee...
doubtless has a rock ledge no matter what the weather because of the bay/peninsula always holds a sheltered spot.... weather atm looks potentially a little nasty but hard to say this far out....

True.... its looking a little bit wet up there this week but some days looking ok.... might even scoot  a bit off shore for some skippys if the swell allows, the north/east wind night blow a few closer to shore... the wind reports I dislike are when it changes half way through the day from one direction to another and it affects where you can fish.

Almost a whole can for the front/nose top and bottom. I probably could have spread it out more. Benjamin reckoned a can for a boat, at the rate I slap it on I would say more like 2 cans.....

I think I used about 6 litres (1 and half cans) when i did mine. Ideally you should do 2 coats for each section. Let the first coat dry completely (about an hour) then put another coat on and wait 5-10 mins til it gets tacky. Make sure you place them on exactly right, because as soon as the surfaces touch it will hold.
