Anchor up Bon Accord 0710, anchor down tutukaka 1430. Not bad for a singlehander in a 25 y o plywood box .

Av. ~7kts?

BP’s form is less ‘box’ and more ‘pencil’

About that. I left with a reef in main and foresail so was underpowered till about 10 miles from Sail Rock, that was fine as I got to have breakfast and tidy up. Then it freshened throughout the day, probably averaged 8.5 to 9 for the second half of the trip. Saw 11 a couple of times near tutukaka. Certainly shook the cobwebs out and made the 3 day wait at Kawau worth it.

Started with 15, ended with 25

Three days at Kawau weren't wasted either, enough fishies for 5 meals. Started with fish tacos

It is a given that if 2 yachts occupy the same body of water, at least one of them is racing

Doesn't matter if the other knows, or is going the same way, or is even a yacht or even a boat. I raced my wife (in car) back from Sandspit to Westhaven one day, yacht won (long weekend traffic)

Went to replace the vhf antenna in mast cable on Island time. Broke it off in the mast, conduit seems blocked. Rig needs painting as well, so pulled the mast. Disassembled and bought rig home. Spent the last  couple of days removing conduit,  wiring, then sanding and painting.

So standard yacht maintanance formula applies.

Time, effort and expense expected x 5?

Seems about right! Pic shows mast now with alloy primer and one undercoat,  you can see on the boom on the ground the state of the paint before I started...
