    Young Entertainer got a reaction from Rehabilitated in Great Barrier ferry at Westhaven Marina   
    thats the new wharf for fullers (passenger ferry)  apparently in the planning of the new wharf none of the designers thought about the fact that the tide goes out

    good call,  it was always a bit of a bug bear.  Happy to have all the other Cat3 parts on board and always considered the safety inspections a good way to make sure the boat was up to scratch for the summer cruising season.

    Young Entertainer got a reaction from jim s in Go on Nats, pick Collins as your leader...I dare you.   
    The wealth transfer is bs dreamed up by those the believe they are entitled. I am younger than Simon bridges and just older than jacinderalla, I have got sick of listening to friends tales of woe and being told how lucky I am to own a house.
     
    Problem is I slogged hard to get it in the nineties while all my friends travelled the world. I took sandwiches to work for 20 years as that was all I could afford. Now apparently I am a rich prick that needs to provide free housing to those that don't want. To give up the sky that I have never had
     
    If labour survive for a second term I would be surprised if those funding the trough hang around

    Young Entertainer got a reaction from Scotty3934 in Windward Sails - are they OK?   
    Murray doesn't have a great reputation for speed, but does built an excellent sail,  once it took 6months to get a code zero but the result was brilliant.  unfortunately his time management needs some work but you will no doubt like the result when it arrives.  10 years ago nearly every boat at bucks was running windward, and I have probably bought 10+ sails from him without getting a bad one, but have seen snails move quicker

    Young Entertainer reacted to Rehabilitated in More boat buying advice   
    You are not very observant are you. Have you walked along a marina and seen a boat where one side the varnish and paint is completely cracked and peeling and the other side shows no signs - cracked varnish and paint or peeling. particularly when they are beam on facing north southern hemphere.

    Young Entertainer reacted to Island Time in Volvo only hours away now.   
    Great Pics SD, thanks. 
     
    AM, how come you are always so negative? Try to look on the bright side for once - the race came here, 10's of thousands came thru the race village, including tourists. There was a smallish fleet for the send off, but it ended up being a working day. 
    In the end it was a good worthwhile event (the Auckland Stopover, AND the race general) IMO. Be happy

    Young Entertainer reacted to Island Time in Anchor Connections Warning!   
    Here is an image of an Anchor swivel, common in NZ, that has failed due to side loading.
     

     
    In this case the anchor actually held, but fell off the chain while the anchor was being retrieved!
     
    The problem was side load. These swivels are often incorrectly attached directly to the anchor - there should be a few (3-4) links of chain BETWEEN the anchor and swivel, to ensure it can't get side loading and the boat swings around the anchor.
     
    Do you have a swivel? Is it attached correctly? Maybe you should check?

    Young Entertainer reacted to Island Time in Post/member ranking system   
    In an effort to better judge what people think is good content, I have enabled the vote up/vote down ranking system rather than the only positive "like" system. If you like a post, click the green "Up" arrow. If you don't click the red down arrow.
     
    Members and posts consistently achieving very low (especially negative ratings) may have the post removed, and possibly have their posting rights disabled.
     
    What does everyone think of that Idea??
