  1. Swisstools for allen & torx, out of the UK usually. Superb, and pretty colours even!
  2. Set at -15 on Bad Kitty from memory
  3. I'm very similar, metvuw then PredictWind
  4. I disagree with this entirely. Yet again the whole of a great community suffers because of an individual or small vocal minority pushing an out of balance viewpoint.
  5. Dolphin drysuits
  6. Yep what he said. Maybe I'm getting sensitive in my old age but I agree, 1 person is killing Crew.org It's sad.
  7. I've got 70 mtrs of 10 mm you can have very soon, as soon as Knot Me unpacks some stainless. Unless he gets sin binned again soon & that affects his delivery schedule?
  8. Bad Kitty

    Old Flares

    Coastguard used to take them, not sure anymore?
  9. Hiya Wave, thanks for sharing, pretty interesting times to be cruising, must be a lot of confused cruisers up there wondering where they're going next. I guess y'all just sitting there & seeing what borders open up? Good luck, and enjoy the sunshine!
  10. PM me a phone number if you want a chat,
  11. Agree, Designers rarely supervise Construction. Look at all those Given powercats, built by Silver Tiger! Great design, built by gib stopping labourers! One of NZ boatbuilding's great horror stories.
  12. I guess it depends on a lot of variables, and your appetite for junk. We only use 2 surveyors, 1 who's pretty tough, and the 2nd is even more discerning. We have to buy boats for various projects, some very demanding, some pretty straightforward. But I'd rather have someone with a critical eye than a Surveyor with low standards. Even being tough on things we still get a nasty surprise now & then. And when you're caught out in 50 knots one day with a hard day upwind getting the sh*t kicked out of you, do you really want to be wondering about your boat? They rarely fall apart, but ………………………….
  13. We use something like this on Bad Kitty, works well & keeps the length of the 2:1 down. Not sure which flavour ours is, refer to Bart at NZ Rigging, came from him.
  14. This is particularly relevant. Are we going to exist in our own bubble of 4.? million, with incredibly difficult travel both in & out of NZ, and do almost no business with the rest of the world? While I don't pretend to have the answers to how we should do this, the future looks pretty bleak for our economy?
  15. Mmm, no pretty sure there's a lot of people that feel like that. 2 here anyway.
  16. Yep film industry down 100%, for at least 3 months & probably 6. Island cruising anyone?
  17. I'm certain that this will be much worse. Puff what's your take on the economic impact & knock on? Feels more like depression to me than a little old recession.
  18. Yep, it's pointless crystal ball gazing at present, but hey, not much else to do? 2 weeks quarantine in a tropical bay will look pretty good by June/July. Or by yesterday?
  19. OK let's give the twitbook group a miss then, didn't seem a good fit for me. So, I guess we just keep an eye on progress with the NZ & the Island borders, and see what happens. A week sailing up, then a week in quarantine would seem viable for 4-5 months away.
  20. Mmmm, can't find it? Is that the exact name? Ta,
  21. I know it's crystal ball gazing, but it's not like there's much else to do, what are we thinking about cruising offshore in a couple of months? May be nothing much else happening workwise!
