  1. G'day SJB, Cant find where to enter NZ IOM Nats. It appears NZ Radio Yachting Association site is closed down. Any help would be appreciated
  2. Here on the Gold Coast they're the biggest class by far at our club - around 35 members. We get up 20 on a Tuesday. Handy hint for those new to the class. The hulls will crack and leak around the centrecase. It's advisable to give the inside of the hulls around the centre case a coat of thickened epoxy of some guys have even used a coating of polyurethane glue (the foamy stuff). Version 6 models don't need to be sealed around the deck fittings. But earlier models need super glue dropped around the screw eyes. Other than what I've mentioned they are very well thought out and a load of fun and as a one design really competitive racing. If you own one of the earlier models your sails may be a bit bigger than class rules say. But they are still class legal. Just for fun run a ruler over them.
  3. I'm assuming the transmitter you're talking about is the small flat one that comes with the boat.
  4. Steadfast, They do clip in. If you have a look at the pins sticking out of the transmitter you should see that they're flat. Line up the toggle levers, they have a slot as well and push them on.
  5. Trimaran - yeah I know its in Australia - but its not a lot of money. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/west-kempsey/sail-boats/24-ft-trimaran/1164837387?utm_source=criteo&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=LF-sailboat It was for sale 12 months or so ago so who knows you may be able to get a really good deal?
  6. Here on Queensland's Gold Coast we regularly have up to 18 boats racing - most fun you can have with your pants on. Stunned
  7. Jeez that boat is a New Zealand multihull legend. Does anybody know if the cantilevered lounge and bedroom are as originally designed or an add on? When sailing on Manu Puru way back in the 70's I don't recall there being much more space inside than what was on my Buccaneer 24 Capricorn. Yeah I know they're both way smaller than the mighty Krisis. I wonder if I could sail it back across the ditch - - yeah no worries!
  8. Just thinking back - I remember sailing 2 handed with your Dad. We were coming around Tapeka Point heading to Russell one day on a hugely overpowered reach in the rain - having a jib change and up to my knees in water on the mighty "Breezin". Roy sitting in the back abusing me for being too slow - pipe upside down in his mouth - smoking flat out - looking like Popeye. Man - those were the days. He was a bloody good bloke - Still miss the old bastard
  9. G'day Leroi from the land of Oz, What did you end up buying? Tony
  10. A very cool boat I hope for those of us not in NZ we get to hear and see how its going
  11. Hi Guy's, What happened to the ex French F40 tri that broke its main hull in Auckland Harbour last year? Has it been repaired?
