  1. Surplus to requirements, was retubed by Dolphin inflatables in 2019, not patches, but does lose air over a number of months, we used to pump it up once a season. Towing bridle and dinghy wheels, seat and set of wooden oars. $1500
  2. if it is just the bearing then it is easily replaceable, undo the clip at the back to get the cable detached, then unclip the unit and bring it to the deck. undo the nut at the bottom and remove the bearing. It is most likely part number 213-10-038. Be careful removing the cable as they are very hard to source if you break it. But i have a brand new bearing still in the box which is surplus to requirements that i can sell to you for $100 (half what i paid for it and without the 3 week wait)
  3. my MDI lasted 5hrs, after getting towed back in and some helpful advice from others with the same issue, i got Ovlov down to replace under warranty, they told me they had never seen it before, i let them know that google would disagree. What has always intrigued me is that they replaced my battery cables as part of the install, apparently it is recommend by Volvo. I was happy i had when it died as they did try to blame it on other things in the boat and i reminded them that they did the install an i agreed to all there recommendations. I had the "safety button" on alligator clips
  4. went back to man o war for the first time in a few year, 1 choice of beer only, $11 served in a can not even a glass, i think is taking the piss! literally. wont be emptying my wallet there in a hurry again, used to be a regular fixture on the boating calendar
  5. perfect for lifelines, I purchased the wrong size so selling at half the price from burnsco, 27metres $80 pm me if interested
  6. the runners (backstays to the corners) will either terminate at the same height as the forestay, in which case they add forestay tension which should equal height and speed upwind of they terminate at the masthead in which case if you have a backstay as well then they are probably more about mast support when using masthead kites or gennakers
  7. have a TPU tubed inflatable that has developed a pin prick hole, manufacturer of the tubes has no TPU repair kits until the new year, so can i just buy an inflatable repair kit from burnsco? they seem to all be for pvc boats?
  8. and if you need a compresssor or parts for one like the clutch good chance it is the same as used in all the forestry equipment, can be sourced for a quarter of the marine price. Forestaire are a good company in Rotorua, the receptionist there know more than most about the danfoss catalogue and replacement bits and generally had them on the shelf.
  9. plus 1 for oceanair, Dan really knows his stuff and gets to the problems quicker than most, but book now if you want cold xmas beers as generally they are booked a few months out
  10. That is a pet peeve of mine, number of times I have been looking for something urgently and find it showing in stock on a website, only to ring and find it is in stock in Australia and would be shipped from there. In stock should mean I can drive to the shop and pick it up same day!
  11. 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....
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
