I did a heap of research into spud guns …..only illegal if you dont have a firearms license …
The ones that go bang , hairspray LPG or the like , are firearms ….and can reach pressures of 20 PSI …..upper limit
Now compressed air , the only limit is safety ….250 PSI is doable if you use copper piping etc
The valve to release the air is the expensive bit , harnessing all that power is hard , you gotta release ALL that air instantly ….at half this pressure a spud will likely vapourise
No license needed ….
Check the power of air , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RryMwlrA … re=related

Anyone seen those RC bait boats on trademe?
Says range is over 300 meters but you wouldn’t want it going out of range and losing it out at sea. Best idea would be to build something similar yourself which would work out a lot cheaper and run a second line attached to the boat so you can pull it back if after it’s out far enough, wouldn’t need to be radio controlled just something that you can turn on.02/09/2010 at 6:01 am #15947
Ive thought of something similar , especially for off baileys during the day …400mtrs is about where the big mama grandaddy schoolies are ….the 100lb models ….
Be awesome hooking one of those on a rod02/09/2010 at 6:06 am #15948
Got a Penn Senator 9/0 spooled with cheap 80lb braid off trademe that I got over a year ago but never used it. Would be ideal for sending a bait out 500 meters or more depending how much line is on there. If I don’t use it this season it’s going back on trademe where I got it from.02/09/2010 at 6:26 am #15949

Most of these Bait Boats have a flipper system on them so when the desired area is reached, the tray or hopper is “activated” and the ground bait (UK purpose – coarse fishing) is ejected.
Max load is just 2kg so my guess is that they are only going to travel a very short distance in sea use, carting a hefty sinker for the end of the setline, then add the drag from the trailing line with baits etc.
Remember this: They are designed for freshwater use in ponds for Carp, Tench etc where there are no waves, current, wind etc.
We looked at them as an alternative prospect for the Torpedo and realistically, they don’t come up to the necessary spec for intended fishbin filling use here.02/09/2010 at 10:59 pm #15953oldgreyboyParticipant
i remember making a kontiki raft two bits of shaped 4by twos and some wood to hold it apart made an ugly box for on top put a taz 22 cc hedge trimmer motor in it loade d the prop in water and saw how long it would run on one then two ounces of fuel worked pretty good on calm days too, first time i tried it was at the local botanical gardens duckpond just as well no one was watching it went backwards right hand prop on left hand spin motor lol.03/09/2010 at 6:02 am #15954
