    yep could have done that, could of also bought an oil pump for an over inflated price, im sure there are other ways too, but this is very quick inexpensive, low mess and reliable way. just one way to skin a rabbit and effective.

    hey wayno60, yes thats a good point. all compressors have some sort of adjustable regulator, i turned it right down at the start and slowly wound it out utill i got the oil pouring out at the desired speed/volume and left it set at that, then just used the valve/tap to turn on or off. the plastic tube goes down to the bottom of the tin to ensure that your not picking up air. worked a treat. and its ready for use in 6 -12 months time. within 5 to 10 min i had the box drained and filled ready to go, and with minimal spillage.

    For a pressure vessel you can also use a 1.25 L plastic coke bottle they will hold 65 PSI safely, and you can then watch the contents flowing out.

    A modified 20mm PVC conduit saddle ---> clip to hold radio aerial while folded down.

    I had to change the canopy stud to a longer one to allow for the extra thickness of the saddle.

    Not really an invention but just a creature comfort, when the ol girl pulls in the anchor she complained that the leading edge of the front of the front covered area cuts into her legs and i must admit when shes not in the boat i use it to lean back on when the jacks arnt playing the game, it does get a bit sore on the back so i glued a noodle across the front. Tomorrow when it dry's ill take the tape off and see how it go's.

    Re: Your inventions...

    Hi Guys, I have an invention but not 100% on the best way to go about it so hoping for some advice.

    I have a 4.5m open boat (tiller steer) that has short bow rails on the fore deck (approx 200mm high) and 100mm high rails on the gun whales at the rear. My idea is to build a lockable hardtop for the boat for weather protection and security when the boat is parked up on the trailer. That way I could leave most of my non expensive gear in there between fishing trips.

    The hardtop would sit on the rails and need to be approx 4m x 1.9m and I want a slight curve in it for rain run off and it it will need to extend say 50mm over the sides of the boat for the water to run off properly. To lock it down I am planning on having some brackets that are fixed to the hardtop that slip onto the rails and then padlock each corner under the rails or maybe just two corners.

    What do you think the best thing to construct this from would be? 3mm (or maybe 2mm) ally would be perfect and match the unpainted boat but might be a bit heavy to take on and off by myself so I was thinking maybe plywood with fibreglass coating then painted or something in fibreglass only. Can you purchase pre made fibreglass sheet or something similar anywhere? Any suggestions welcome.

    G'day Linedropper .
    I'd be inclined to hunt around for an old lawn locker/shed arrangement. It would be easier to roll the boat into than lift a canopy onto it.
