  2. Thanks for the replies so far Cant say its swayed my decision either way as yet ... but im leaning toward fully removable press stud carpet option that can be taken out for cleaning. I have a hot water pressure cleaner so giving it a blast down aint gonna be a problem.Whitworths sell a textured deck paint by Northane - http://www.norglass.com.au/products/weatherfast-deck-paintHas anyone used it?If we were to go a textured option thats probably what I would buy over doing it with sand.Maybe I should do both :whistle:
  3. Thanks Kingsley !In my network of business contacts I actually know a guy that installs children's playgrounds as apart of his landscaping business in Canberra so I might give him a call and pick his brain.
  4. Sounds good, any pics of it you can share Brenton?
  5. Hey Ale, yeah that was my thinking to go with a press stud/removable option over a glue option. For the exact reason you stated. It really has come up nice and I don't think I really want to go covering it in adhesive.
  6. With the resto of our Savage (first ever tub) moving forward to paint and fit out stage I thought I would ask the question and ask peoples thoughts on marine carpet and more particularly the install method.Adhesive to glue it down or a removable option like velcro tabs or perhaps even press studs ... or no carpet at all? ... perhaps in favour of a "gritted" deck paint?Im all ears, give me the pros and cons. Whats in your boat /what works best for you?Cheers
  7. Umm ... April fools? .... Really :whistle: ... just wondering how you drew that conclusion? :whistle: :whistle: Nothing to do with april fools ol'chap.
  8. It all depends on how much your willing to spend but as a photographer myself heres my suggestions for you. - and I'll also point out a $300 camera can take just as good a photo as my $9,000 camera so it not all about price.For an Entry level DSLR (digital single lens reflex) - interchangeable lenses - a little bit bulkier.Nikon D5100 - Its a great little camera for any DSLR novice/entry level snapper but still has a heap of manual features if your willing/wanting to lean more than just "point and shoot"Point and Shoot - (compact, easy to throw in your pocket, tackle box)Two suggestions here.Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20 - this ones always in my tackle box and I hardly leave home without it.Canon IXUS range - I say range because the new model is out this week, so there could be some good bargains around on the older "new" model. Fabulous little cameras packed with features.
  9. Ive taken a little weight off mine using a model die-grinder so it doesn't sink so fast and it works brilliantly.
