  8. Any body travelling from Auck to Nelson or even Auck to Wellington? I am trying to get a Yamaha 9.9 high thrust moved down the island. Will look at all options, but given the prop fell off issue in the strait thought I would explore here as well Quite happy to pay with $$ or rum etc to be negotiated...... there's nothing for free in this world.

  9. herd on the news today that the AC saftey boffins are suggesting quick release life jackets, so if you get trapped under an upturned vessel you might be able to get free??????? wtf???
  10. Ive been here in similar circumstances and after 6 months of trying to do the right thing, i went to the small claims. Problem solved straight away. Should have listened to good advice given to me 6 months before!!! Dont piss around straight to small claims!!
  11. .Cheers Bob, for now I have no reason to lose faith in my insurer to do the right thing and hopefully the skipper that did the damage will put his hand up, all going well the whole thing will be resolved in a few days. AS Tui says "Yea Right" but i do hope you can get it sorted
  12. Fair comment, i was just thinking out loud most topping lifts are lighter as you say.
  13. whats wrong with using your topping lift as a spare halyard? presuming its been replaced with a suitable spec rope/cordage? and the boom is lashed down with main.
  14. Has happened to me on my 2.2. After a while it will start to work again. Short running doesnt help. Run at low to med revs untill you think its getting to hot then let it cool and try again it will start working again. i flush mine in a bucket because you obviously have no where to fit muffs on these little motors.
