  1. so it is more like you must get a WOF but the closet garage to AK will be in Hamilton. Westpark, Baywater, Pine harbour all owned by the same guy who must be rubbing his hands together now with the thought of the revenue coming his way. Having recently sold the boat and for the first time in 30 years not owing a boat that requires a marina or haulout I think i timed that about right, now to find a boat to race on where someone else pays all the bills....
  2. not quite the same, they expect you to get a WOF, but then make so that there is only allowed to be 1 garage per 500km of road, bad luck if you live in AK and all WoFs will now be done in Tauranga. That would be a more reasonable comparison on the basis that from Westhaven it would be 2hrs to the closest haulout yard other than floating dock soon? Given Pine Harbour have reduced there hardstand space (and increased the prices accordingly)in recent years and there seems to be a lot less space at HMB now with the extensions where are people planning on doing the maintenance? yes you can g
  3. i have used durapox clear coat, two pot and gives a great finish, havent yet had to take if off though. Can also be used as a clear coat on any other painting you are doing including carbon so seems pretty versatile
  4. sold the boat so now surplus to requirement, $100 with stainless bolts to attach to the marina finger. would have to pick up from either beachlands or highland park could be arranged during work hours
  5. or try Profile metals they do lots of stuff for the marine industry and have a laser cutter
  6. I have two brand new 5m extension cables, these are Volvo parts and plug directly into the OEM plugs to extend the harness if your control panel is too far from the control box. $50 each if they are of interest PM me
  7. I taught my kids from early on, if you can hit it with a bottle then it is too close. so i create the bottles and they prepare them for use, i have found that green bottles have the best range so i tend to stick with them
  8. anyone not using there berth this Saturday night, taking the boat up town, and probably dont need it but would like to have the option to park there from about 6pm to 9pm if i need to. Westhaven apparently not doing rentals at the moment due to a renovation project. happy to pay the going rate for a nightly rental, need minimum 12m
  9. I spoke to someone involved with putting it out, no definite answer until the fire guys finish there investigation etc. etc but the current thought is that it was the batteries, fire started not long after the mechanics turned on the batteries to test the engines after some work was done, I also heard that the insurance company will pay out the classic but also give the boat back so it can be rebuilt, If that rumour is true then good on the insurance company as better to let the owners work on options to have it restored than to write it off and have it go to landfill, sounds like a boat w
  10. yes ended up having drinks on the beach with them, he did say he had done sailing as a kid, but we wont hold launching against them, seems much more practical with small kids, I have even been tempted
  11. whats the boat chariot? i think the actual damage was restricted to boats fairly close, by 5.30pm only D pier was closed and all the rest open. Marina sent out an email last night to say all directly effected boat owners had been contacted and other boats on A-D should visit and potentially need to wash any soot off. The breeze direction did pretty much mean smoke only blew over the end few boats on the first four piers so only a few would need a wash
  12. my neighbour knows the owner of the classic next door, apparently just recently relaunched after a like new rebuild, the owner is gutted. He invested a lot of both money and his time to get it perfect My wife was there when the fire started and heard the local sparkies talking about how to put out a lithium battery fire so probably the rumour started from there, i am sure we will find out over the next day or so if it is true
  13. i got something similar with my vesper unit, i mounted it behind the instrument panel, otherwise it would have disappeared with the first rope to catch on it, I know that maritime radio can see me from 20 mile so must be getting a reasonable signal out though the deck
  14. does your 608 include cable? apparently the solution that i had is missing a critical cable so back to sourcing a new unit
