In the Eddie Coates collection there are several shots of 180s with a cylinder on the starboard wing which may or may not be connected to the hopper...used to know what they were but can someone please enlighten me?
Also, many, many years ago used to go to a 'strip' at Welcome Flat in the Copeland Valley in a 180..is that still used?

I was just up there on foot a few weeks back, didn't know there was a strip there. Where abouts was it do you remember ??
Wasn't a strip or such but just a clear area..
Just Googled the area now and trying to remember if it was that area on the southern bank and upstream...know we used to walk over to the hut and springs...but seem to remember another shingle bar was used further upstream also...
This was in the mid 60s and had some photos but long lost with many moves over the years...frustrating.

thomarse, there's at least two usable ones in the Landsborough although its a few years since I have been on them, other people would have more up to date info. Between haast and Milford there are quite a few strips dotted about. I haven't been south of Milford.
