  1. That study obviously got filed in the bin like so many others prepared for council over the years.
  2. Why would they want to provide 10 & 12m berths. I think you will find those size berths will become a thing of the past.
  3. I have never relied on a solenoid. Have always turned off at the bottle after every use.
  4. Think you did a couple of races with me in the trans Tasman series on Goldilocks many tears ago Sudden. I did a few Wednesday night races on Sunbird.
  5. `You say you want to cruise the coast for 2 to 3 weeks at a time. That can easily be done in your Raven 26. In my younger days we used to cruise for 3 to 4 weeks at Xmas from Auckland to the BOI or Barrier with two kids on board. Cheap cruising in a small boat.
  6. I have never owned a boat where to boom was at or below head hight, but then they were older and slower. Our Davidson 35 was well above head hight, that's why it dropped onto the top of my head.
  7. Only been hit on the head by the boom once. Had just crossed the finish line and a crew member released the main halyard before anyone had pulled the topping lift on. Hit me fair and square on the melon, a bit of claret but nothing serious.
  8. Pine harbour marina. Car can be left in public car park.
  9. Don't think the Mercury Bay Game Fish club have any influence on the Mercs. As far as i know, Faye and Richwhite still own Great Merc. They still had the new year bash there last year, but nothing like it used to be.
  10. I think the Mercs are now a clean your anchor and attachments as you lift. I know a lot of people are still anchoring on the northern side. South side not an issue.
  11. Mercs are another option. Then again, that could be crowded with large part of Barrier out of bounds.
  12. I have always admired the lines of the Chico 30. Great little boats and extremely capable. When we bought our Cav 32, it was a toss up between a Chico or the Cav. Both very good boats.

    Been past it this morning. Can't see a thing. All submerged.
  14. Another 1 on C Pier, Pine Harbour. The name escapes me. Maybe you shouldn't have sold Bittersweet.
  15. Good to see the new owner of my old boat do well last weekend. 2nd in the cruising division.
