    Let it sink! I'm sure if there is a profit in crayfish, flowers etc, Emirates will be here.Be cheaper to increase our air force fleet size. Any other reason?

    vic008 got a reaction from Rehabilitated in World first electric tug P.O.A. NZ gets first boat. Although it cost double of non electric   
    I dont expect NZ, a country of 4 million to lead the world. Why should we be? Certainly not leading it in renewable power generation. Remember Aucklands electric bus. What an expensive joke that was. See the same for this folly. Why on earth do you want to lead the world in this.?

    So Kevin, you will leave your fellow countrymen foundering in the surf, so you and yours can escape.It will be only the wealthy who can afford a seat in the boat.Hardly solving any problem. And perhaps hypocritical?

    Would like to think I wouldnt abandon my country and I would stay and fight the evil. Its what we do. (Wouldnt have the money to be able to leave anyway) This scarpering is not the western way.

    vic008 got a reaction from Sabre in Sailors Corner closing down   
    The last time I was in Lyttelton there were 2 coffee carts so that blows you out of the water. What I find interesting is Chch has 3 yacht chandleries- same as Auckland has/had.
    170 you say. Don't know how many in Chch but enough to support 3 chandleries. The boats all around the harbour ie Cass,Purau,Corsiair, would never prefer to shop at the marina instead of going thru to Chch.? What does your bullshit marketing diploma think of that?

    That must be where I went wrong- using the free one. Will try again with the paid one.

    Personally I prefer all traffic to pass close as to me rather than distance off. Close means their wash all over in 10sec as against the rock and rolling for ages when they are further off. Try it and see for yourself.

    Tragic news. Hope he had a survival suit on. The loads on the tether must be so much greater when you are tearing along at 25kn in comparison to my 5kn. And Skallywag has given up on him and heading for land. Whats that about.

    As you were. False alarm. Someone misread dipstick. Bottoms have been kicked, people fired, hopefully a lesson learnt. Sorry. Thank you.

    vic008 got a reaction from mcp in Rigging questions   
    You need the services of a good rigger. If like me you will find your zhopping list getting shorter the more quotes come in. Could you revitalize your sheets and halyards in the washing machine. Stalock you can replace youself if you have the new cones. Pricey. Renew all splitpins. Turnbuuckles-free them up and put Lanocote? on the threads. Think everybody would say new rigging SS 1×18 wire. If you went the stalock way (I think about a hundy ea)you could do it all yourself if you are v competent

    vic008 got a reaction from Scotty3934 in Windward Sails - are they OK?   
    Windward Sails. Paid $1360 10 weeks ago and so far just receiving excuses as to when it will arrive. Always next week, now he says it is in transit. With the excuses so far, I'm not sure I believe him, I'd like my money back. 
     
    Anyone here have experience of them?
