  1. last year we were checked while anchored in BOI, had to show the hull clean bit of paper and then a diver when down and checked, then photos taken we we didn't get checked again, Marina staff meet us at the berth to site the haul out form
  2. I did this on Rawhide, went with the isotherm diy package originally, then cut the top of the box and had the copper braised to the back and reinsulated. Cut the power requirement in half and made it an awesome freezer. Total cost was in the 5k Mark
  3. sorry should have mentioned that the 22k included the conversion kit so no boat building was required, new engine mounted onto old engine bed, was a deciding factor in replacing with same manufacturer. although others did offer similar options.
  4. geez and i thought i paid up for install, mine was 22k engine, saildrive, and prop, install was 4k and fridge change about the same
  5. the value of a new motor cannot be overstated, i spent last christmas fighting an old motor because i could not get parts for it, nothing actually wrong with it, ran perfectly, had low hours etc then something broke an being an 1987 motor spare parts were nearly impossible to get and certainly didnt arrive the day after you needed them. Using replacement parts from other manufactures helped but didnt solve the mian issues got rid of it in April, put a new one in and kissed goodbye to 30k but could not be happier. probably added maybe 10k to the value of the boat if i am lucky but the
  6. I had a pink hobie 16 called nipples, when I sold it the guys wife was adament it had do be renamed until he pointed out renaming a boat as bad luck but would let her add another word to the name, after half an hour of suggestions none of which where deemed acceptable she gave up, he bought it and left the name as it was
  7. Will be there for the Worser Bay Optimist Nationals and already taking 2 Optimists and a Large RIB so cant fit the last support boat. ideally 3-4m will be used as a support boat for a Green Fleet Sailor. I have my own 8hp engine I can use if easier. Experienced support boat operator, happy to part with cash or rum. Send me PM if you have an option and I can call to dicuss
  8. go the lazy jacks and normal main, that is what i did on my 1020, that way you can pull the lazy jacks forward to the mast when sailing and fully remove if you want to rave. To Drop just let the halyard go andtidy up alter, hide any imperfections under a main cover
  9. yep it just depends whch way you wind the rope on, i used to do it by accident all the time and would end up with the UV protection on the inside
  10. moving the cooling off the sail drive is fairly common as the holes block up and the on/off valve often seizes, i have only ever had sail drive and all mine have been like that no issue. New had an oil expansion issue, just make sure that the level is correct and it works itself out. Also check oil is not milky as that indicates water getting in the bottom seal. When antifouling crack the drain plug and make sure the first drops out are clean. If you need to to the bottom seal it is a simple DIY job when on the hard.
  11. pine harbour is on a bore so no restrictions on the hard stand or the marina as no mains water. beachlands and maraetai is all tanks so no restrictions either
  12. boat not coming out just the rig at the gantry at Bucks, scheduled for the 14th at this stage
  13. Whole lot is coming out I was giving to a rigger who has always sorted me out for part but you can take what you want for a bottle of rum, if you need to check it out prior boat is at pine hrbour
  14. i have decided to replace the whole lot so a bottle of Mt gay will probably get you all the parts you need, should be getting removed mid september at Bucks. send me a PM if interest with your number and i will give you a call
  15. or move to tank supply, i am still only 2min to the marina and i currently have 51000l spilling into the drains it has rained so much in auckland recently. Rigged up a 500l container in the back of the ute with a submersible pump and 100m hose an and good to go
