  1. And yes, all I could do was shrug when boats started motoring back to the start line
  2. I have one very similar if not the same as the delta. Nice sail, nice foils. PM me if your serious and I'll take some pics

    Boat Dilemma

    My two cents having modded The Entertainer from bog stock and raced the hell out of her: go Scarlett. The keel makes a huge difference and She runs Masthead and fractional gear. They cruise better with the t-keel too. 930s are just so much bang for buck and lots of knowledge around which people are happy to share. They still get out in fair number too at times all be it in different configurations. Part of me is tempted to buy Scarlett...

    Anyone know who did the standing rigging on High Spirits and what was used? It may determine how I sail the old girl. hehe Chur
  12. Hi guys Curious if anyone has been denied racing cover due to claim history? I've had 4 racing claims - one my fault in 8 yrs and am getting a bit of pushback. I take my racing seriously and am never reckless with crew safety or gear and I'm a bit bloody pissed at having problems Not aware that part of any policy says that if you chose to claim that it could be cause to be denied in the future. I understand no-claims bonuses etc but out-right denial is a bit crappy. Does this mean I can't skipper any boat in a race as it will void the owners insurance? Maybe I'll have t
  13. Cheers guys I am a bit of a sucker for a project. I'll try and go take a look. Tazzy, sounds bad. did she even look capable of getting back to Akl under her own steam? or too dicey? Ballistic looks fantastic. I'll pop down today and have a look. Not far from work.
