Renmark, check out riverbend caravan park, real nice cabins there. Plenty of good water around there as well.

Hey jabba I'm 150km upstream from Mannum but I can tell you that the river level is pretty much back to normal and the flow has dropped right off recently.....

Water temp has come up since Oct long weekend so you should be right for some good boarding... :)

Are you getting on one of the Unforgetable houseboats??

weather over last 24hours suggests there might be a few trees and debri in the river which will be down mannum way by the weekend

other than that - as per shcills - it's all good!

Well good old Waikerie might make the Ch. 7 news tonite...

We got absolutely smashed by a storm front at about 4.30 yesterday arvo.... 8O

The spiralling clouds before the storm hit were a sight to see.... needless to say there is now plenty of firewood for everyone.... :)

Need a ride in South Oz, have licence!

Postby DubMenace » Wed Nov 16, 2011 7:53 pm

I've put this into the Find a Ride section also..am obviously desperate! I'm looking for a ride I live in Henley Beach, have license and am a responsible driver.
happy to go pretty much anywhere on the Murray

I work some pretty random hours..a lot of weekday time off etc

Please anyone with a boat needing another rider contact me!

getting out this weekend after having a few jobs done on boat (new steering cable should make it easier? new log gland should make it dryer? ballast pumps should make it easier to empty? and a few other $'s chucked in)

still got quite a few hours at my desk then a work function before my view changes though (water level won't be that high either).

Bump....... had to get this thread back on top..... not much has been posted up on here lately.......

So who's coming to Wake Up vs YHK at Waikerie this Saturday ???

Should be a great day....sounds like there's going to be a great range of boats there on the day to try and get a ride behind.

I'll be there most of the day so lets hope the weather's kind , suns out and the water is flat..... :D

we have had some pretty windy weather so far this year (lots of south winds which really whip it up against the current) but still getting out a bit.

here's hoping for some quiet winds over the next couple of weeks.
