cruising Level 2?

Recommended Posts

Went out of Whitianga on 23rd in 40 foot yacht. Was character building for sure. What was surprising was how far out the waves were forming so that when you waited for a lull the next set would get to you before you could get behind them. Would have been good to watch.

There have been some very big easterly swells around lately due to depressions off the coast. Quite a lot of damage to Buffalo Beach foreshore. A lot bigger than what is normal.

Schooner, unless i am in reverse.


I was planning to sail to Fiji every winter. Instead i have just ordered and received a diesel heater from a crowd in Chch. Let you know in a week or so how it works.

Not sure if I have seen an update on your heater. It must have had plenty of use by now. Are you happy with it?

Currently sitting up  having a cup of tea in bed naked.

Does that answer the question?

Even better Angela loves it.

 Condensation reduced to near zero. Consumption about 4l per day. Thermostat at 20c

Great improvement 

Thanks for that. Did you just plumb into your main diesel tank? Looks like some (maybe all) come with a small pump.. is this enough or is it best to be gravity fed?
