  1. Wheels,tell me you were joking when you said NZ fishing companies act to ensure the stocks are healthy and maintained.
  2. Think I,ll remove and sell.Too hard to winch up and winch down.Go electric be better part of $2g.Cant see the advantage.Why would you bother? Anybody?
  3. Yes, went thru dispute, but it auto turned closed, as I didnt return the goods on time.(since never received) You tick 'refund and return' and they are meant to waive the return.
  4. Well that ended in tears.$326 actually.They tried to get more money before would send.Now they telle to return for refund and I tell them never received so rather hard. Repeat.And their tracking shows Arr AKL on11/6; deliver 13/6.Amazingly fast eh.So never again AliExpress for me.
  5. Just been making insection ports in the ss diesel tank.Is there a way of pressure testing for leaks.(No 230volts.)

    What is the latest thinking please? Tank drained,(cant remove,and no inspection hole).What to do?
  8. I would expect not.If there was a sleeve inside,would expect there to be rivets visible to retain the sleeve.
  9. Thats on my to do list. What is the best thing to do with a rusty starter motor? How would a wrapping of Denso Tape work? Too hot?
  10. Very strange.Tracking my new budget buy.Says arrive in destination country, then delivered yesterday.Not!!Then notice them saying miscalculated postage and want another $20 and then it will leave China. WTF.Mind, they lied about the start of covid so this will be nothing.

    VP2003 trans

    Early ones are prone to stripping the input or output shaft. In the UK there is a wk/shop who specialize in this repair for about 300(?)quid, by converting you to a hex shaft(?) What would you do in NZ if this trans loss happened to you?(just being a boy scout)
  12. No thanks.Mainly because can buy out of China for not much over $300 landed.
  13. They have 2 nipples on bottom pointing down. Think could cut rectangle hole in a washboard and have it sitting outside in the cockpit. Beauty is no installation, just need 12v. I cant run ducting under furniture cos of tanks etc
  14. Anyone tried one? Thinking could set in the companionway and direct hot air below.Thing is, would have it going straight away, and no installing probs.
  15. BP, I like Simson products now. Had to replace the silicon around the windows. No silicon on the boat anymore.
  16. #1 for the Quilosa
  17. Big Boys Toys (Auckland) listing them at$595. Worth serious consideration.
  18. Can the Milwaukee 28v one be charged from uour 12 v battery?
  19. Dreamed the 18v drill would manage to power the self tailer to unfurl/furl the mainsail.Any other solutions?

    Navman 5500 crook

    No, overnight it will turn off. Its unresponsive when off, but pull her power supply out,then plug her in again, and she fires up. Strange.

    Navman 5500 crook

    Thanks, multimeter says she is getting power.
  22. Turning herself off for say 15m, then after about another 15m, turning back on. Power supply good and plugged in hard. Everything works good otherwise. Internal battery?
  23. Had great success with putting a bung in one end and filling with hydrochloric acid for 6hr
  24. Gotta install a level gauge so need to open it up for a wee while.Anything I can do to reduce the stench?Thanks
  25. I had a trimtab on aft edge of rudder with same idea.I gave up, and it takes a lot to beat me.Did think about actuating it with a morse cable but never tried.
