  4. When you want a deluge they are far and few between... So I did some preliminary testing in my shower cabin: Better but no cigar. The shoulder part still leaks some so I opted for some reinforcement using a spray-on product. Before that I also applied some heat by means of ironing at lowest power. Both seemed to help. Tonight we got some rain, not heavy though, and I took a longish walk. OK, much better. It will keep me dry in non-demanding conditions, at least for a while. Inspecting the inside at home I see water is still coming through but much less. So Nikwax helps but it do

  5. A vast amount of toxic crap goes out of that creek from the wairau industrial catchment so yeah , nothings going to get growing in that marina . I grew up playing in that creek and using the concreted part as an underground highway when wagging school. Some of the sh*t that businesses would chuck in there on purpose and inadvertently would turn the creek , green , red , pink and sometimes there would be a a 3 feet deep froth . Hopwood yachts , Cooksons , formula marine , Greg young marine , salthouse all had drainage sumps in the car parks outside the factory doors . I had mates who

  7. I would not loose too much sleep over the hose. the hoses are something like 150psi rated, so probably take 300 psi new. After the regulator is 0.5 psi. There’s enough factor of safety there it’s like a structural engineer was involved. Our boat pre 2003 is flex hose from tank to stove. Means no joins. When we got the boat we removed the regulator, pressure tested at 20 psi and soapy water everywhere. Personally I would rather 1 old flex hose than multiple crimped pvc covered copper or aluminium systems I have seen in modern installations.

  9. This is exactly what a trolling motor isn't designed to do. People who are trolling for fish just want to move through the water at a low speed, they don't care if they are not moving over the ground or even going backwards with the tide against them. A trolling motor is designed for trolling slowly, not as propulsion to get you somewhere. The propellers have a very low pitch designed to move the boat very slowly and not overload the very low powered electric motor. Consequently, if you try to go against the tide you'll not really get anywhere. A trolling motor with the power and ran

  10. Another Saraband (funnily enough also ex Tauranga) Vitesse just popped up on TM. I remember her getting launched, and it was owned by a family we knew quite well for over 30 years. She was on the same pier as the family launch so I always cast an eye over her as we walked past. Looks like the current owners gave her a good birthday. The extra freeboard would be nice, but no walk through transom.
