    Bucklands Beach has 2 travel lifts at Half Moon Bay. I have used their hard stand for the past 5 years. Great service!
  2. We have all of our insurance with BNZ underwritten by IAG. All means house, contents, 2 cars, Cavalier 26 keeler, inflatable RIB, RIB trailer & 2 outboards. We have had 5 keelers over the years insured with them including a full $15K right off after the boat slipped her mooring and a couple of other marine claims including theft. We have also had 2 burglaries at home & several car dings. All paid out without any fuss. Some of this may of course be that we have so much cover with them.
  3. Hi Kenny. I have sent you a message. Cheers Ian

    New Genoa

    I got a brand new main for my Cavalier 26 approx 3 years ago through Brent Gillies at BG Sails in East Tamaki, Auckland. He outsourced it to Hydes in London who I believe have their loft in the Phillipines. I received a fantastic sail with awesome stitching which is still going strong and still looks like new several years later for approx 2 thirds of the price quoted in NZ.

  7. Not exactly in the vicinity of the Bay of Islands but there is a couple who restore old wooden boats at Whangateau near Leigh. Can't remember their names or the name of their business at the present time but I have met them and have seen the awesome work that they do. Maybe ask Sandspit Yacht Club or Lees Boatbuilders for a lead. Cheers Ian

  11. We saw 3 Coastguard vessels heading out one behind the other on the same day & around the same time as posted above. One turned back shortly after so I am guessing it was the same boat as this one in distress poor people!
