travel Shipping gear from Australia to USA
sir lancelot posted a topic in General KitingHi folks, I'm about to go overseas and need to ship my gear to the US. It comes in at just under 22kg, and I've got 53 days before it needs to be there. Can anyone recommend companies to use for shipping? I'm currently looking online but need to do some follow up calls to find out about insurance/warranty in case the equipment is damaged in-transit. 'Pack and Send' seem cheap, but I've yet to find out if they have insurance. Cheers!
Duke Rack V1
.Joel posted a topic in Kite BuggyDuke Rack V1 Huge thanks to @The Duke for knocking this together for me yesterday. I took some photos from the Buggy Transport thread and some steel strapped to the roof racks of the car. A few hours, a few more hours, then a few later and the buggy was now safely being held on the back of the car by Duke Rack V1. Test drive was back to Melbourne from Ballarat, about 160km so not overly far and it didn't move at all, we had some thoughts that it may need tensioning to the roof racks but there was no movement. Each point on the rack has a through pin/bolt, and then 2 pressure bolts on each point so there's no play in it. I need to take an angle grinder to it to tidy up a few bits and remove the finger-slicing edges as we thought by 1am Mrs Duke may not want to hear us angle grinding in the street any longer I've got some ideas for aV2, mainly a mix of long-distance road transport settings vs on-location rear clearance settings which will retro-fit back on to this but first time to test this and take some measurements of rear clearance at different locations. Haven't decided on a colour yet, just avoiding dark colours like black that will get ridiculously hot sitting in the sun on a dry lake. I'll share some more photos once it's all cleaned up and painted up.
