You need to use polycarbonate. Widely used in boat construction. The product is sourced under many manufacturers product names. Seahog used the product Lexan, but as long as you use a poycarbonate you will be ok. Most glaziers are able to supply. You will even find poycarb listed on fleabay.

If you decide to take the plunge. Take a little time before leaping into making your purchase. If there are any local boat angling clubs, make a point of visiting and chatting to owners. Speak to as many as possible and make a mental note of the type (not make) of craft that seem most popular. Quest...

It's not a technical problem Keith. We had a meeting whilst you were on holiday and you're banned from the site.
So emphatic is the ban, you only THINK you are reading this thread.

I understand what you say Keith, but the fact is, as soon as you purchased them they are now second hand goods and no longer new. Unless they are specialist built, by some highly regarded fly tyer the value of the collection reflects a second hand price. I would split the collection into smaller bat...

If you sell them in bulk, second hand trout flies average out about 10p each. Split them up into batches of 20 or so to maximise the value. You'll be able to make a little extra on each p&p and you get nearly double for the fly.

Some of the latest issues from manufacturers are now incorporating DSC GPS capability. I have used Lowrance sonar and GPS for over 30 years and found their products to be of more substantial construction than other leisure distributors. Their offering for the UK handheld is packed with features. It ...

Yes. You first need to register your details in the chat room box in the lower left column of the home page. Enter the chat room prior to 8pm on Wednesday and just join in. You certainly don't need to be clever, (or we wouldn't do it), just enjoy the banter. Oh yes, don't mention Keiths age, he's a ...

I believe the best you can purchase are those built by Icom. Having stated that, I have used a couple of Humminbird handhelds for many years without experiencing any problem. Your question was which are recognised as being the very best, I stick with my first statement, ICOM.

There is some excellent inshore angling on the sandbanks north of the Mersey channel. Good fishing for Gurnard and Ray in the summer months. Because Liverpool was a very acrive port there are a large number of offshore wrecks that produce some cracking Pollack. I never went to sea on it, but had a f...

Yep. My last beer was 1980. You will need to drink it for me. I'd fall over after just one. Won't be able to do quiz due to work. Win that on my behalf.
