  1. My added advice to the preceding is check the tidal flows around all the major capes (East, Te Reinga and / or Palliser) and try to time your passage around them with a favourable set accordingly. Avoid a strong wind against spring tide flow or else you will be in a world of pain!

  3. I’ve also watched a couple of their videos. They’ve done a fabulous job refurbishing Moanaroa. I’m intrigued by the large cut out in the trailing edge of the rudder though. Presumably to accommodate the swing of the Aries self steering paddle. It is inspiring seeing people are still doing “no frills” offshore cruising in small boats. Must get off my bum and do it myself!
  4. She looks well set up. Doing a circumnavigation, I wonder?
  5. I had this problem a few years ago. Took the mast out while doing other refurbishment at a boat builder. Found aluminium conduit that conveys masthead lighting cables inside the mast had severely corroded allowing water to track past the foam plug. Pulled that out and removed the remains of foam plug as best I could. Replaced conduit, fitted some closed cell stop ends inside mast: one at bottom halyard (topping lift) outlet, the second about 300mm further down. Then squirted Gorilla foam in between them. After foam had set, removed the top stop end by hacking it to pieces with various sharp im
  6. Heroic work - good on ya!
  7. I used to have one of those (Nexus taken over by Garmin). Bloody unreliable so I replaced it with a hard wired Raymarine instrument!
  8. Hi Lebleaux I own a Chico 30. It’s been in my family for nearly 40 years. Berthed Pier M at Westhaven and you’re welcome to come have a look and trade war stories. Another Chico owner is connecting owners with a view to entering a Modern Classic division at the annual Mahurangi Classic Yacht Regatta. Feel free to contact me by PM. Regards SR

See TradeMe listing: https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/boats-marine/parts-accessories/radio-electronics/listing/3569843708?bof=MTZpsU11 I bought this a couple of years ago, set it up and it works fine but unfortunately it's not what I actually need for running OpenCPN on my laptop. It might be useful for someone more tech savvie than me!

  11. See TradeMe listing: https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/boats-marine/parts-accessories/engine-parts/listing/3569791254 This might be of interest to owners of Yanmar 2GM20, 3GM30, etc. engines looking for an economic source of spare parts. Description as follows: A complete Yanmar 2GM20 marine diesel engine, without gearbox, suitable for spare parts. Unfortunately the engine suffered a hydraulicking failure (exhaust cooling water found its way into No.1 cylinder, damaging head gasket, main block and one piston). However, there are thousands of dollars worth of new, nearly new and rec
