  1. https://www.12voltplanet.co.uk/adjustable-delay-timer-relay-delay-on-or-off-12v-10a.html I would put that across in the existing circuit and install a 3 position toggle switch circuit to start it, I would add a bypass as the third position so I could run for longer than the timer if I wanted. And I would add a light so I knew the compressor was running....
  2. People needing to make essential travel, that they can prove is essential, can get an exemption. I doubt the AC race director would be denied an exemption... your travel is as part of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak, including the provision of aid your travel is essential for the conduct of critical industries and business (including export and import industries) you are travelling to receive urgent medical treatment that is not available in Australia you are travelling on urgent and unavoidable personal business you are travelling on compassionate or hu
  3. Firstly the gas locker would be completely air tight except for its drain. So the fingers crossed, is that the locker door did not leak. The same principle as a Cat 0 bulk head with a air tight door. So long as the sealed locker door was shut securely then there would be no way for the gas to get inside the boat, it would go out the lockers drain. As I said in the original post, I wanted to avoid cutting a hole in the side of either the cockpit or the transom. I generally dislike cutting holes in the outside of boats. It's going to need a big hole next to the point where the runn
  4. Had Angus over today to do our Cat 3 again, we discussed this. The answer is no.
  5. They are over 100m deep at the entrances.
  6. Would water be able to force its way past the grease in the crox? I wouldn't of thought so? Don't those things usually have a one way ball bearing in them as well? Easy way to find out... I would also be concerned about the singular hose clamps..
  7. You can leave Australia if you're bona-fide leaving to live in another country permanently. I know a couple of Kiwis that have sold up and come home from Australia recently. The law is designed to stop people leaving for a few days, a week, or a month and then returning and adding pressure to the quarantine facilities.
  8. Even the base and the cases don't (readily) exist in NZ. Lots of places outside NZ selling kits and complete units. I visited, Jaycar, Repco, Supercheap and JA Russell. An auto-electrician in Wairau road said he can order one from Hella, but they have no stock in the country and it will be $90 ... I have ordered a box of 5 from AliExpress for NZD$7.29 - in the mean time I will fit a standard relay and wrap it in plastic tape. Probably overkill given the last relay lasted 10+ years - but figured I would do it right.
  9. 12v dc 30amp. Maybe I am searching for the wrong thing? I can't find any on Jaycar or Repco. Looking for something like: https://www.amazon.com/PACK-AMP-Waterproof-Relay-Harness/dp/B074QV54V1 Or any of the other million hits I get when typing 'waterproof relay' into Google Edit: I found someone on trademe reselling the Aliexpress ones for a nice markup.
  10. Anyone know where to buy a waterproof / weatherproof relay and housing in NZ? Lots online but not finding anything in NZ.
  11. The article (and some of the others it links) explain this. The H1N1 of 1918 had an gene that was "exceptionally virulent". This 1918 variety of H1N1 is not in circulation today, has never had a vaccine created for it and we have no herd immunity to it. If it was to get out, there would be a mad rush to quarantine and develop a specific vaccine. The last most virulent h1n1 was 2009, it was not even as deadly or as contagious as the 1918 strain, but still caused worldwide carnage. To quote the article: "Oseltamivir (Tamiflu® or generic), has been shown to be effective against
  12. What fascinates me, is that it is still out there, frozen in the permafrost, just waiting for climate change and an unexpected chance encounter with a friendly carrier. The Deadliest Flu: The Complete Story of the Discovery and Reconstruction of the 1918 Pandemic Virus Makes one wonder what else is waiting for us...
  13. Australian citizens and permanent residents are not allowed to leave Australia unless granted a special exemption. Visitors and others, with expiring visas are permitted to depart. If you're a citizen but normally reside outside Australia (e.g., you're visiting family) then you'll get an exemption easily.
