Nope. Chum is when someone continually throws up over the side of the boat. Burley is when you get sick of the smell and throw him overboard.

As part of the boat fitout Ive been tasked by my mate and my missus to build tackle storage into the side pockets under the gunwales. Any ideas would be appreciated. Expecially if anyone has experience with vertical lure management. The gunwales are around 5.5" wide measured from the underside and the pocket entries are around 4.5" wide. Pockets are around 5' 10" long

Very very nice. Love the big Stacers. Getting rid of the 619 Ocean Runner is still something my mate and I regret.
The newer Ocean Ranger looks a lot sleeker so should ride a fair bit softer than the Ocean Runner. (Not that it was overly harsh but it is a tinny after all) We had the HDS7 in ours. Always wished we went for the 9 for the larger screen. Bloody good gps sounder.
You will have a ball in it.

I’m getting a little more mature and a little less fit as the days go by. I now wear a self inflating life jacket every time I go out in the boat, doesn’t matter if it’s river or ocean.
Anyone else do the same?

Certainly do as I fish solo a fair bit, the only time I don't is when I'm on my mates big game boat.

Bought my missus a self inflating lifejacket as she prefers to wear it most of the time.. My 150 isn't a inflating one so its only usually on for bar crossings.

My trusty old 2 speed okuma was making grinding noises on high speed and generally a bit unhealthy after its last outing. I know nothing about the internals so resigned myself to the fact I was probably up for a replacement after 15 or so years. Nothing too flash but a sentimental favourite, has caught plenty of Spaniards, wahoo, Tuna, mulloway and a sailfish largely from Steep Point where it has been at the business end of a balloon rig for a good dozen to 15 trips or so.

So with nothing to lose I pulled it apart anyway... lubricated everything, tightened a couple of items I suspect were a little loose, and carefully put it back together. Much to my pleasant surprise it’s as smooth as a baby’s bum and lives to fight another day! More money to spend on the patrol 😆

The 50lb braid on it is the same age as the reel, they don’t make it like they used to. No need to replace it. Just have to add 80m of 80lb mono leader before next Steep Point trip. I also got the spring out and reset the strike drag.

As I said, nothing too flash but plenty of sentimental value and certainly does the business, hasn’t failed me yet!
