Door locks, bolts, latches

Went to Docklands Boat and Lifestyle show today and had a bit of a look at the Seawind door. They didn't close it though, but could mostly see how it worked. 3 panels on piano hinges, so they fold to the middle and then the middle one is hinged at the top so that it folds up to the roof. Next time I...

Mobile Phones

That is interesting as I was told one of those Telstra Tradie phones had reception issues, not sure if it was the T90 or an older one. We were not recommending them at work. Jim do you have an external antenna up the mast? I was thinking about if you can get amplifiers for the them like you used to ...

Hull sheeting

Not speaking from any experience here, so wait for those in the know to respond. But if you wanted to ensure end grain was sealed I would have thought that would be easier before the sheet was attached to stringers. Then you could be sure it was sealed as opposed to hoping the resin ran between the ...

In terms of revenue gathering to support the site some sites have some good ideas. For example, are now run by a commercial entity, but they have sponsor forums and ads. So you can ask a question directly to one of the vendors. The only issue with it is they expect preferential tre...

Water pipes

I was reading that some people put in a return loop on the hot water, that way you can run it back into the tanks until it get's hot. Not sure of the details, but seemed like a good idea for the cost of some extra hose and fittings. Puremajek, Does this look like the place you got them? No Whale on ...

Online Magazines

Actually I think Amazon are talking about the ability to lend books you buy to a friend, I think it allows them to read it for a couple weeks, during which time you cannot read it. It then automatically comes back to you. Sure I read it somewhere over the last couple months. I may email a couple oth...

Just thought I would let others know about a couple of US magazines that you can subscribe to online for a fraction of the cost of print subcription, or buying them imported at the newsagent. I think they were around $20 for a years subscription. Blue Water Sailing Cruising World Both are available ...

Web Site

I created a test forum on hostbybb to see what admin options they gave, looks like admin backups are disabled. If you ask them to do one I can have a go at converting it to phpBB 3.0 at least and can host it if need be.
