  1. No this will be a brand new Beale 10 Los Molinos is over 20 years old
  2. A sad day for the crew of her over the years , scary how quick she went down at least the crew are ok , I guess the only thing to do is a wake at the Northcote Tavern? Anyway there is another ply rum racer almost complete at Milford to take her place soon on the start lines.
  3. Add to Veladares list the narrow catamarans hidden at Devonport that were built for SAS and trimmed by the stern so too dangerous to use even when throttle stopped.
  4. Amusingly our Devonport based Navy and the Commander of this ship has requested we go and welcome her in as a number are doing right now , the funny part is they requested us to form up orderly and wait in the Orakei Basin till the right time! I guess this is just another example that we have very few boating people in the Navy any more
  5. Actually in 85 they changed From the ancient Kauri legs to steel. I helped remove some of the messy kauri ones from where they washed ashore😇

    ETNZ tipped over again this time not planned .....
  7. Nope and soon will be a year with no parking near our berth no apology in fact they assured us that the carpark would be finished by February result more carpark dug up and barricaded off, rather than putting the price up yet again you would think Panuku should be following the countrywide be nice line haha. Panuku squandering more ratepayers funds with no mandate to do so.
  8. Etnz out in Rangi channel really smoking, at first I thought it was the youth AC boat floundering at Northern Leading - then they got the sails set and zoom
  9. I was wondering who Icky was and what KM had planned for him?
  10. I have done just this the last two years , refuse to pay YNZ fee through five yacht clubs and nominated one. This of course creates a great deal of hassle for the smaller clubs and I doubt that they have pursued it just pretended that I paid . However it is a point of principle and as I age more I note that the most fun regattas and events are organised outside YNZ !
  11. Ah but under level three you are allowed to go out into the bush with your camo gear on and shoot at your mates - I mean dangerous animals, but still not go sailing ?? on TV one tonight WTF
  12. Not much varnish there....😎
  13. Interesting to see the big Riv crasher coming back up the harbour when we finally get a breezy forecast yesterday, police said hi off Devonport but he carried on - I guess he does Live aboard anyway.
  14. If sulphur point has prevented you from accessing your own vessel then they have also taken on the responsibility for its wellbeing and with it the insurance implications.
  15. Yes seen copies recently at boat books
  16. A contessa 26 I guess that may be the one we tendered off at Okahu bay 20 years ago with the side missing.
  17. Good accurate response, IT, people should be aware that most of harbour front Kawau is private property too.
  18. Yes I am in touch with one or two at Kawau they are sitting tight except for going out to empty holding tank, plenty of tucker not sure about water though, i can't for the life of me understand why police are telling individuals not to swim on the east coast as we are further apart than when walking past each other and if it is a part of our daily routine prior to all of this and we are walking to the beach on our own - just easy targets I guess the old grey haired swimmers.

    They do seem to be coming from Barrier or further north direction , but 44forty I will go with your local knowledge, on the other hand Michael Hill isn't that far north

    Why would helicopters be flying over the North Shore in and out of the Rosedale helipad between 2 and 3.30 am ? This has occurred the last few nights low altitude and very noisy!
  21. Which cruise ship is it that has been in forced isolation off Rangitoto since Wednesday , one of the Holland America lines maybe? Was it the one turned away from the port down south?
  22. Any one here wanting to pat Happy Teeth should consider looking at the seal attacks shark video on you tube from Hout Bay SA . Thats what the big sharks think of them!
  23. A very basic design with shallow keel and not enough rudder in the water, hull looks too heavy and deck too light, ready to go I cant see it weighing what they predict, and if it does it will spend a lot of time lying on her side, there you go Mr Fagan...
