After tonight's 7 sharp programme I guess Townson 32s chainplates also should be checked

LOL. I don't watch Hosking. What time of the program was it on. I might swallow and dead rat and brace myself for a few minutes of the replay.

Mike Hosking should be shot. Anyway, didn't he resign after National 'lost' the election? He definitely needed counselling.

Near the start so you don't have to put up with much of him

I saw the interview on the unmentionable's program. Good interview and messaging. Sorry they couldn't save his stuff in the raft.

 

How many would sail solo with the hatch open like that? Why wasn't his VHF charged?

His VHF wasn't charged as it had turned itself on in the grab bag & discharged itself.

And, he said he was checking the content of his grab bag monthly, including that the VHF was in good order. So he was taking 'all practical measures' and was understandably a bit pissed off when he found it was flat.

Ta for VHF info that it turned itself on. Must be a weird model. Mine is ICOM VHF Marine Transceiver IC-M33 and it would be almost impossible for it to turn on by mistake because the on button needs to be depressed into the housing.

How the hell does that full blown twit Mike Hosking manage to force his bloated egotesticle bullshit into the living rooms of this country.

For christ's sake he is just a introducer of news clips, not even a properly trained journalist.

On a $mil or more.

His verbal diarrhea in granny Herald is simply a daily joke.

Tantrum over for now.

Back to the Townson recently lost.

The skipper comes across as a pretty switched on guy and his comment about the value of the liferaft safety course he attended is a timely reminder that being in a upside down raft and being able to right it needs to be practiced beforehand.
