  1. and so, with not a lot else to do that is more pressing, SO will be slipping her lines and ambling out into the Waitemata on the tide.

  2. Best thing would have been to confirm Auckland at the end of the last cup and built on the momentum plus giving confidence to set a campaign around. Not a good way to get anyone to commit when not even the host club knows what’s going to happen

  7. I'd use urethane skateboard bushings. A lot of early mountainbike suspension systems used urethane bushings as the "spring". Stable, takes huge load, available in a wide range of compression strengths (duro), easily replaced and tuned (stack different duro bushings in different lengths to tune).

  8. You will still need a topping lift. Even the best systems only support the boom temporarily. Without a topping lift your main sheet won't have anything to brace the boom against and it will swing all over the place

  9. We used to use squash balls under concrete pavers to support turntables in nightclubs/dance parties etc. We replaced them every month or so. They rapidly lose the air within and quickly become a mush of rubber when under constant pressure.

  16. Friday afternoon/Saturday ... Painted new charcoal metallic boot top above my laboriously reclaimed white gelcoat factory stripe. Re drilled bolts for rudder top gudgeon, removed, freed up and reinstalled grease gland packers for bearings. Fitted rudder bearing tube and rudder. No play now! Installed new prop and prop speeded sail drive and prop. Wife and kids masked and sanded teak interior window trims. I prepped external window surrounds and installed vhb tape, and marked and masked window outlines.

  17. I grew up holidaying at the family bach at Te Tora, a group of batches on the Waiuku inlet across the water from glenbrook. We had instilled a healthy respect for the harbour. strong tides, strong winds don't mix well with shallow water, moving channels, sandbanks and mud

  19. DP I have not raced the Coastal for many years, last race on a young 88, was great fun, so I have no money at risk but I'd like to suggest that those that want to support the club and the 40th anniversary say they will accept a 50% refund with the balance going to cover costs incurred for this year's race, any funds left over to go toward the 40th anniversary race. I know it would be a huge task for you DP if it happens.

  20. Thats the date that the credit company sets. The alternative is to refund each entry individually in which case the club loses $1000+ in credit card commission on top of the thousands the club is going to haemorrhage over this. And I have to spend hours setting up internet banking payments for over 100 boats.

  21. Sadly we have had to cancel the race this year. It's been a very tough decision for the NZMYC as we just wanted to RACE! Get ready for a really big one next year as it is the 40th anniversary of the race! https://www.coastalclassic.co.nz/post/pic-coastal-classic-flies-ap-flag-for-labour-weekend?fbclid=IwAR2lSwMeYYtnT5qpCEFTYhNHgH8WINVbJXghn8e8DEzuvqCJZXwKHcQM9bs
