    Yes, around 2-30pm, witnessed by a friends, Te Whatever tacked and then toppled over in a froth Of white water. Out near Motuhie Island. Spectacular and hopefully no one hurt. Righted again within a few minutes aided by chase boats , jib lowered slowly and towed away .. this was his account to me as he watched. No, it’s to April fools day ....
  2. 2. Molesworth is a gem indeed . Cycled Rainbow / Molesworth / Awatere / Taylor’s Pass / Blenheim Feb 2014. Fabulous few days on the MTB.
  3. I’m with you Bad Kitty and Scottie. Def not lonely. She’s a twit
  4. I have always owned in syndicates, (5 keel boats, 3 multis) for the last 30 years , and it suits my pocket well. Never been any issue with a) finding partners, b) keeping syndicate happy, c) changing boats . If I wasn't already involved in several yachts already, then I would have a crack at the R40. Different strokes suit different folks, and Syndicates have been awesome for my family and i
  5. Yes, forget sailing for a while, get back to earning some coin again, and enjoy your health. That will make the next sail/race/cruise/raft up, whenever that may be, feel AMAZING ! Oh, and what about Urban Cowboy for $99k ono. ? Seems to be a good boat, at a fair price. I can't , however, see my wife falling in love with a Ross 40...
  6. Well said Southern Man , the Chill factor is bullshit , as you say , unless you are a civil servant / council worker sucking off tax payer / rate payer. Even the idea of rowing out to moored boat or visiting a marina bound boat and checking it’s all okay would be a great tonic right now.
  7. Add in our Farr 1020, GBE and Hobie 16, I think we'd be still well short. .. still need Lotto, or sell a few of my kids, hmmmmmm
  8. Me too , halves ? ...just checking Lotto ticket now ....
  9. Craig, I could be interested. 021 817 671 Keith
  10. Look up the Wildcat model on Trademe, I have one of their 2.6m roll ups, it’s awesome. Same style as TrueKit . WildCat is Akl based , but will ship anywhere I think
  11. I’ve got a WildCat 2.6m, love it. Well priced, stable and carries us well.
  12. Hi mcp, I have a complete ( was running) MD2030 on the shelf at work, I am aiming to rebuild it with a kit of pistons/rings/bearings from the UK, it’s about £400 . So I am hoping for around $3000 NZD by the time I’ve added any machine work needed, water pump, etc its destined to replace my 30yo, Volvo 2002, which starts/runs/sounds sweet after thousands of hours use. It just won’t die ! id love to hear how you get on with the MD2030 rebuild if indeed you do it. despte hearing endless reports of dud Volvo’s, I really rate my 2002 !
  13. GBE Excalibur is keen, just need a mooring up near town somewhere , can anyone help with that ?
  14. Thank you, I will call for a quote. Yes GBE size ideal
