  1. bit of a long shot I know but I'm looking to rent a big boat (16Meter/24ton) mooring in Lyttelton Harbour if anyone knows of one? Thanks Shane
  2. There's gotta be a story in there some where? Out with it Knot Me!
  3. Just an update I've just gotten off the phone to FMG, according to the nice lady they won't insure anyone in Christchurch due to an issue with their re-insurance, no mention of ferro being an issue. It would be nice to talk to an actual insurance company. A company that evaluates risk and applies a monetary value against that risk, rather than the box tickers I'm speaking to at the moment! Shane
  4. Heyall! I'm looking for a gas fitter to install a new gas system and a califont on my yacht laying at westhaven. Is there anyone here that can do it or make a recommendation? Please call me on 02 1623903 or PM me here! Thanks SHANE
  5. Hello I'm looking for a gas fitter who can do a simple gas install. I'm looking for new piping to an existing stove and the installation of a new Cali font. Please PM me here Thanks SHANE
  6. Very good question! The boats in Westhaven! SHANE
  7. Hello All, long time! I'm looking for someone competent with diesel engine to help me fix a leak round my governor control on a CAV fuel pump. It looks like a pretty simple fix, however has a few gotcha's and I have a pretty poor track record when it comes to fuel pumps! Happy to pay, cash or trade for IT Services. (I've also got ship loads of teak trim and fishing gear if your interested) PM me here or call/text 021 623903. Cheers SHANE
  8. Gidday I'm looking for a Dinghy & Outboard to use, mainly during the week for the next couple of weeks. Happy to pay or some to a suitable arrangement! PM me here! SHANE
  9. FWIW I had the same stuffing box in my last boat. it was old, worn and hadn't been repacked in years. When the top was twisted and grease injected if the boat was not in use it never dripped. Once used it would drip constantly, cooling the shaft. this is expected behavior. BTW it was a trivial exercise to replace the knob with a propper grease gun located in a convienant location. SHANE
  10. I'm looking for someone to share 1/2 operating costs over the summer, Cetacea is a good solid, if not flash cruising boat, sleeps 5 comfortably with room to move around. She's a 40foot simple to sail, off shore cruiser. not flash but pretty well equipped, VHFs, Radar, EPIRB, AIS Flares etc. pay half expenses and you get to sail her out of West Harbor as arranged. PM me if interested. SHANE

    Teak Trim

    Gidday all I'm having a bit of a clean out and I've got two huge boxes of teak trim, fiddles, fiddle corners and corner handles, etc Probably about 40kgs worth, various sized some already rounded, some still square. MUCH more than a boat load! The plan is to list them on Trademe in sets but if your interested in having a look at them as a bulk lot, I'll be at my storage unit in Henderson over this weekend. Give me a text or a PM here. Shane 0272045290
  12. Ever heard of Wikileaks? Thats what it's there for! SHANE
  13. I had one in my last boat. Umm it was something like a SD804 ? Anyway parts were VERY easy to come by, they are often used in tractors, I also picked one up on trade me for a couple of hundred and sold a couple of parts for more than that. Also Moon engines has a couple laying around and I believe The Engine Room also has some. I had no issues with mine even after I flushed Salt water through it and I believe it's still going strong!
