Heading up to Fraser next week for a few days - but for a number of reasons i have to fly to Brissie and have hired a Cruiser (yes its covered for Fraser!). Question is do i really need to take snatch strap, tree protector, shackles , compressor etc - cos if i do there won't be much left for clothes on the flight!!
If I stick an EO sticker in the hire car do you reckon someone would help if I get stucK? - or are the stories of take your own recovery gear true??

I would just take the snatch strap & shackles. Let the tyres down on the barge, when you get back just drive slowly to the nearest servo & pump the tyres up (not your tyres).
Yes there is a attitude on the Island of no snatch strap, no help.

have fun

except.......let your tyres down before the barge. There is a 300m sand drive to get on the Manta Ray Barge. This is warn and dug up most the time. In fact for this reason it can be the hardest 4x4ing you will do on your trip..!!!
Remember

Green and Gold for the barge (Manta Ray's colours)
Green and Gold for your last servo in Rainbow Beach (independently owned PB....thats.......NOT owned by Kingfisher Bay)

Snatch stap and shackles..... servo for air up 10k's from Inskip, take it easy and you'll be ok....... Low range in the soft sand, hi range in the hard sand and you will be fine....
If you have to use the snatch strap, DON'T forget the dampener!!!!!!!!
