  1. I have had good sucess with Light Grey Warpaint in Gulf Harbour, but like all antifoiling you need to wipe off the brown silt regularly
  2. I Have a Farr 1020 it has a house battery and seperate starter battery which run through a BEP 3x way switch, and VSR. I have a volt meter and an amp meter, the small aprox 50mm round ones, giving readings for the house battery only. I would like to at least readout for the voltage of the starter battery. Is putting in a set of matching voltage and amp gauges in the most econonical option. Also where is the best place to connect to the starter battery power supply, at the BEP switch or Volvo Penta D1-30 starter motor? Thanks Strath

  4. Go on line and have a look at Devonport Yacht Club, handy to Hobson Bay, They do cruising races to nearby destination Waiheke Island, Rakino and further etc. for a beach BBQ and over night stay, over the summer months, also some longer races. They have several under 30ft boat sailing in the cruising series. Go visit the club for dinner on a Friday night introduce your self to the duty officer and have a chat to see if sailing with them fits your requirements.
  5. The question is, under Level 3 can a few of us go down to the lake and sail our Radio Controlled Yachts as long as we stay 2 metres apart?

I then preceded to make panels that spanned across the full cabin ceiling and have them covered in vynal. This finished up a really nice job. The process 1/ I set out the panels to suit the width of the vynal and the position of any posts, or hatches, I started from the galley posts working forward, also to suit sheet of plywood, in this case they finish up approximately 550mm wide, 2/ Having clean up the ceiling as best I could, 3/

  10. Clarification from Insurance Co. Hi Peter , The definition of Social Racing as below : ‘Social Yacht Racing’ means yacht racing which does not include the use of spinnakers and/or extras, and does not exceed a distance of 25 nautical miles measured by the most direct route of the course, within the Geographical Limits of the Policy. If you are using spinnakers and/or extras then this will be considered racing & the racing excess will apply. Regards
  11. My Racing Excess has just gone up from $1,000 to $2,500 I have request the following clarification as the policy documentation states Racing excess is $2500 however "club racing" comes under the normal policy excess of $1000 Could you please clarify for me where Racing risk Excess and social racing starts and stops. I assume that if you were competing in the Farr 1020 Nationals, the $2,500 excess would apply to a claim. Again I would assume that if you were sailing in a club race to a club outing to a destination, this would be Social Racing, $1,000 excess would apply to a claim. Th
