    Recon this will work?

    Bloody wind driving me nuts.
    Not condusive to fishing for snapper from a ten foot tinny.
    Latley it has been off shore wind so thought i woyld knock up a kontiki.
    I have never seen one before unless you count those new electric ones.
    If it will drag my long line out 200m i will be stoked.











    So far I am up 5 dollars as it is all crap from under my house that needs throwing away.

    Looks fine to me and if all else fails well you have a nice lolly to chew on!!

    I have wondered about towing a longine off the rabbit Island behind a kayak but
    A) I have no Kayak and
    B) I'm not nuts to try doing it in the wind even if I did have one.

    Will that rolling hitch on the lolly work? And if not suggestions please.
    Dairys no longer sell barly sugars or lifesavers apparently so went with a generic presumably made in china lolly.

    I have not seen one with a rigid sail before, only fabric. Don't see that it wont work in theory at least.
    With this wind is mate, a kite may be an option

    Goin with the slight cross wind off the beach if i set on a outgoing tide i recon i will get it out near 90 deg from the beach.

    I off set the clip on the bridal to try and steer it into the wind a bit but this is probably optomistic at best

    Try it out under a running tap to see how long it takes to dissolve/break up??? Or just give it a go, worst case is that you will be pulling it all back in with the sail up...

    Yea kite could work but I would have to buy one or 5 till I work out how and how not to use it.
    At least if I lose this it is zero dollars and will wash up on the boulder bank where it will be recovered and reused by bead and sandle wearing stoned hippys

    My old man used to fly the line out on a plastic rubbish bin liner as a kite, down Ning Nong bay, lake Ferry way, then sit there with his .22 and shoot it down! About 100 holes worked I think. I'm a bit shy to try that off Papamoa. Black Powder Cannons work ok as well
