    Flying with Spinlock Deckvest S-Cutter: carry on?

    In Australia you can apply and get a certificate for a year to carry a pfd and spare cylinders, you have to apply to each airline, it's not one certificate to cover all, pretty sure you can have them in hold luggage and hand luggage, but I just kept mine in the hold

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

    My guess is it will happen, to what degree I don't know though https://medium.com/@matt_11659/matt-barrie-australias-economy-is-a-house-of-cards-6877adb3fb2f

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

    Was in Cid Harbour last week, didn't want to be there but people were on the moorings at Hook Passage that I was planning to use, so the others decided we should go there, must have been 35-40 boats there, so i'm guessing a lot of food etc ends up in the water, the fish started biting about 4:30pm and continued after dusk, we did loose quite a few hooks, the only things of any decent size we caught were some Sharksucker/Remora's which went back along with all the other small fish. For the whole 10 night charter, we didn't see a single shark, even though we were snorkeling every day and did a full day dive trip, we did see plenty Turtles though, but I was expecting to see a few sharks and more fish which there weren't much of, but I am used to Ningaloo

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

    I'll be sampling the delights of HIRW next year, all booked up already, 1st time so will be interesting to see what I think of it. Just away to go on a 2 week charter so if anyone has any good fishing marks, let me know via pm, shame they don't allow a bit more spearfishing....

    Bend in Laser mast Lower question

    Just to rule out the obvious, can you confirm that it is not a 4.7 rig I've broken and bent all sections before but I used to sail all year round in Scotland and had some pretty epic wipe outs, the others are right though the lower section should be the last thing to bend, though I have managed it before, but not to the degree you have maybe 3-5 degrees

    The idea and title is a straight copy of what Young Blood Spearfishing has been doing recently, who by chance SLV follow: https://www.youtube.com/user/brodiemoss/videos

    Hot to Stop PFD From Riding Up Into Armpits

    Shame they don't do these in a light colour, black would be a bit hot in the summer where I am, I could always run a white rashie over the top but that kinda seems like you could just get a low profile one and do that to save buying this. Looking at the sizes am I seeing it right that only the large size is 50N or would all sizes satisfy the rules in Australia?

    Headlamps

    I've used a BlackDiamond Storm for years, think I got it in 2011, still on my first one though as it's not given up yet, I have it around my neck from before dusk to after sunrise even when sleeping, nothing worse than trying to find a torch in the middle of the darkness, I leave it on the red setting so I just need to switch it on.

    Doubt they will be going to the Arctic Circle anymore now as well, never thought they actually would make it, I think someone may have pulled their leg on that one and they rushed to announce it first without looking into what was needed, or realising that the others were going on someone else's boat and not their own

    Club/offshore racers in Aus up to $80k AUD

    BH's had lead under the floorboards, some had it cut out for IRC racing, boats couldn't cope with more weight on the keel.
