  1. Bugger - always sad to see a sight like that.....
  2. As Fogg said - the other options around Putiki Bay are quite tidal .... The pontoon/pier at Kennedy Pt is another option -buses going to Ostend or Oneroa from there - you could leave the tender on the breakwater side of the pier where it would be out of the way for anyone launching from the ramp
  3. Is unfortunate that the Italian Press have come out critical of the "lack of respect " shown towards them - I dont feel it is a one horse race at all. Team NZ supporters are hoping their boat can do the job but LR having been so race hardened since Dec I feel until they get together on the racetrack tomorrow (and following days) it is far too early to make a call and it should be a great contest.....
  4. I have Nanni;'s (Kubota) 37.5 hp in Pzazz -good little motors and extremely easy to service (built in pump to remove oil from sump) coupled with SD50's -yes the cone clutch is problematic but i have put in an upgrade kit (from overseas and Yanmar agents dont want to know about or be involved with) plus use a GL5 rated oil which is less slippery than the Mercruiser and theoretically helps extend life of the cone clutch -
  5. There has always been good fish life in Deep Water Cove
  6. Count down to the finish of this epic race - 3 competitors within 120 nm and around 24 hours to the finish line.....
  7. Yes the HE ... thanks for that will look into it
  8. Usually its any provisions are confiscated and disposed of on entry so assume they are changing the rules in that department.
  9. That was the place I dealt with - great service and was pleasantly surprised at the range of parts they had.
  10. There is a company in Sydney that stocks second hand parts - the name escapes me but will do some digging tomorrow and see if I can find it. When I needed something they had a few options
  11. The chances of getting one in Matiatia are pretty slim
  12. Assume they were towing to mainland in which case a long tow in those conditions. Don’t think there are any sheltered ports in Isles of Scilly - quite exposed there .
  13. Its looking as though the only possibility there is some Aussies but everyone else is most likely to be watching on international media. Probably the best outcome is that Team NZ retain the cup and rehost again in a relatively short period ie 2 years -hopefully by then the shambolic state of affairs that is currently downtown Auckland may not be so embarrassing!
