    Awatere

    Aratere That is a photoshop pic - The newspaper article at the time said it was an artist impression of the actual 50 deg. roll. The Aratere had to stear an unfavorable angle in the heavy southerly, to clear Cape Terawhiti on a course to the northern entrance to the sounds - There were no off board cameras near the roll area. With shifted cargo and still listing they had to keep heading north until almost Kapiti Island untill it was safe to turn and head back south.

  5. Out in front of the road bridge on the edge of the whitest of the white water in that shot, The finer river sediment gave the good holding. https://www.google.co.nz/maps/@-41.5693421,175.4007232,1967m/data=!3m1!1e3
  6. Ive found White Rock is a great place to be in a NW screamer, Really good holding but windy anchorage on the right hand side of the white rock. Spent a few nights there many a time after a hard NW reach down the coast. Never dragged even in 50 gusting 70 ish and 1 metre wind "Chop" coming off the beach. - Danforth 10 mtr chain and warp There was a 1 meter wind chop only cause we had to anchor a long way out so we wouldnt get dumped on the beach by the 3 mtr southerly swell that had picked up. The southerly did arrive next day which gave an nice sail to Wellington Good Fu
  7. another one of countless 1st time posters wanting a delivery or new boat queiry - who's been put in the sin bin recently
  8. You see Rehab. its not rocket science to do a coastal trip. You have been trying to make out you need to be super human with the ability to google search weather sites. Compulsory port calls for weather info, Laughable -
  9. suggest you round up all the other 1st time posters keen on looking for crew positions and wanting boats delivered. You should be able to put together quite a eager team d
  10. A 2:1 system Increases Load at the mast head - while the halyard is being pulled Once the halyard is cleated off, the load at the mast head reduces to the original load being lifted How about that D.
  11. Boo yes please explain your theory again If you put a set of scales under the mast and throw 1:1 - 2:1 - 20:1 or even 100:1 purchase on a halyard, the load (compression) on that set of scales cannot decrease. Youre saying that load (weight) read on those scales will get lighter the more purchase you put on the halyard ??? - Maybe the stays are there to hold the whole shootin match from liftimg off Tell me if Im wrong D. PS . San Fran was a blast, a pretty cool city
  12. Bad kitty . Ill meet you at the napa wine bar for sundays race. Ill pm you with contact details. Anyone else in sf.???
  13. Dont forget the Alinghi halyard lock issue from the '07 cup http://www.smh.com.au/news/sport/team-n ... e=fullpage
  14. Me crapping on about Spencer boats is probly wearing a bit thin by now. Anyway - Re "The most intense scariest on the edge in control sh*t Ive done in a sail boat" Having a guy go over the side and out of sight for 30 - 40 minutes was "The most intense scariest on the edge in control sh*t Ive done in a sail boat" The bastard (In a good way) busted the life lines and stanchion But thats another story D
