  1. Probably the best thing to do is to go on Facebook and join the crew finder pages for rnzys and Richmond yacht club. Or the "nz sailing" or "women who sail nz" groups.
  2. The article says steering damage and taking on water, presumably if taking on water it'll sink rather than drift.
  3. My read of the article is that they're saying there may be circumstances where you'd favor a regular pfd over/instead of an inflatable. Not to literally wear an additional lifejacket over the top of an inflatable one...
  4. Or when we imported one from aus a few years back, on an aus built one. The closer economic relations au/nz treaty means aus built boats also exempt from duty here (gst still applies).
  5. I agree with psyche, but am concerned about category inspection or pre race safety inspections by clubs if the manufacturer specifies your lifejacket needs pro servicing and you've self serviced it. The baltic material is still ambiguous. Refers to the ability to self service but that they 'recommend' professional servicing.
  6. Interested in where this info comes from? Particularly re Baltic, which I have, as the information on the Baltic website says that you should have it serviced each year by an authorized agent OR you can do it yourself. Is the above from ynz? Or just something collated from what you could find?
  7. Need it for coastal too. Not all the boats do both SSANZ and coastal but plenty do. Not sure about gold cup, maybe need it for that too?
  8. To be fair, they also don't consider their own races - the last date they tried was during their own 3 kings race.
  9. Not sure that anyone has directly answered the questions so here goes. 1. Between $200 for an hour on the floating dock and $700 for an out, in and clean somewhere like pier 21. 2. $20 - $30ish a day depending where. 3. $1000-2000 depending who, where, what covering etc. 4. Been discussed above, around 3k. Depends if just replacing wire or whether the rigging screws need replacing as well. 5. Ballpark $1000/year but varies depending on risk so where you keep it etc 6. Couple of grand if you can find a friendly delivery crew. Generally done by the day so depends
  10. Also consider having the old coating media(soda?) blasted rather than sanding? Might leave you with a better job.
  11. As per marinhero there were a bunch sold as hull and deck packages and then 'built' by randoms... not sure on the provenance of the one mentioned in the OP though.
  12. I was on WS for that. Did brilliant later become simply brilliant, or are they two different boats?
  13. Yeah I remember nevenka going over to do the s2h, mid 2000s as mentioned above would be about right. They were racing a lot with ryc and Vera mummery was club president iirc, but they also did a lot with Victoria. We raced our t32 there as well, and there was also sometimes a t34 town fox. Other regulars included the Tercels on their d35 Reotahi and an older lidgard called something like taitua. In addition to those mentioned above Wandering star (starlight based t32) has done a lot of miles including to Darwin and back. Tony Kendal (sunlight) is the one to talk to. Ran the owners

    Soft shackles

    I've had a soft shackle shake off. Now use insulating tape or velcro as mentioned earlier in the thread and haven't had it happen again.

    There was discussion here and other places maybe a couple of years back. Seems to have blown over now. Some of the quickest boats had too long a j measurement. I don't know what the outcome was but nationals and class events have been going ahead so assume it was sorted and people moved on.
