  1. Great result for a wee boat !
  2. Deep purple is off to a scorching start
  3. This sort of thing is happening in Oz with the flying Ant and is very successful by the sounds of it https://www.flyingants.org.au/
  4. Gday knot me ! yep plenty of sprit boats have pulpit navs that are obscured by the gennaker/code 0 when it’s up and have passed their Cats
  5. The yellow tri is rooted , the guy on board got a broken nose
  6. My great Aunt lives on Mangere mountain and saw a ketch matching the description the police put out . it anchored in the manukau near the yacht club about a week after New Year’s Eve . She took a lot of interest in the boat because it’s very rare to see an out of town keeler of all things up there . She called it into the police more than once and they didn’t follow her up . i was surprised to read somewhere a few years ago that a ketch matching the description was spotted heading north off the Taranaki coast , just a few days after New Year’s Eve . Again no follow up and pretty high chance it was the same boat my aunt saw at Mangere . who knows what the hell happened but the police missed a glaring oppurtunity with flashing bloody lights on top not following up on those two sightings of a boat matching the description taking an unusual route north .

    Thanks for clarifying that ! I worked for Roy snr and jnr as a factory rat but they didn’t build any beasts while I was there . the molds were there though and bloody big too and think they were the biggest production launch molds at the time ? Pre-dating the salthouse sovereigns by quite a few years . Such a legend to design good looking , ground breaking launches AND yachts that planed before it was the done thing

  11. I have heard a 3rd hand rumour that up to 300 boats are wanting to come to NZ from FP because of the above
  12. Yeah you can get concurrent 24 hour passes . Pretty sociable place to setup too , plenty of chatty euros in campervans with an eye for speedy looking trailer yachts
  13. Move out of Auckland man ! Problems solved
