  1. Went for a sail in town for a change... Ponsonby cruising club open day turned out a stunner!
  2. had the combined weiti gh winter race.nice sunny 5-10knots. good close racing with it being abit too close at times. with a little bit of carnage! to put it lightly we were in the wrong and demolished the prod.. Wild thing was honking along and chasing a 45fter all the way to the finish. with whats news not far behind. But im sure we will get a write up form WT anyway.. even got some work done on the little 3.7 yesterday!
  3. Went out for a sail. Squid if you could make it work that would be great
  4. Repaired a rather large soft spot in philstars hobie 16. All fixed now! Did some small jobs on the 780 and measured sails for our phrf for the simrad. now today I re-spliced the prod lines as one came out racing on sunday. Now their whipped! What else is there to do Philstar!
  5. fitted some jib tracks to the r780 ready for the winter series. Broke a rivet gun riveting a mainsheet track to philstars hobie 16 and did some dodgy electrics . allgood fun.
  6. Shoulda come and said hello! but not run the slow red boat down in the process... Now.. was you the boat that couldnt get the black gennaker up properly or the one with the white one blasting along at sh%#ing your pants speed?
  7. finally got them this evening Richard! there will be some photos from the NS champs coming later..
  8. Had our north shore champs at Takapuna on Saturday and Sunday. Wasn't my best result but had alot of fun with a good turn out of 9 boats on both days. On the Saturday we had a light Northerly sea breeze of around 10kts with Derek Scott taking out all four races. Sunday came with more wind of up to 15kts with less sun and a bigger NE swell. this provided much more fun with full wire reaches for the light buggers. top three places after two days of racing 1st- Derek Scott 2nd- Phil Ash 3rd- Mike Jones Photos to come. Also met Richard B down there aswell!
  9. this week iv successfully started a new rudder for the 3.7. a exact copy of the old one, just much stiffer and much lighter and will have slightly more board in the water. the old and the new. at the moment is around 700g lighter then the old one. not bad for my first rudder! It still needs alot of fairing to be done, but im happy with how its coming along. Then tonight im off to teach a certain famous sailors kids how to sail at manly! Then tomorrow off to russell to bring Bump N Grind back home! should be a good weekend
  10. +1. That looks beautiful! Old skool woodies are just gorgeous. Cheers guys.. Built by Des himself! she really is old school! I think it will be hard for myself to ever go back to a plastic fantastic...
  11. Not really this weekend.. More like last few weeks and today.. haha! Well today's achievements were finally being able to get the 3.7 back in the garage for some much needed fixing... The transom under bottom rudder gudgeon had given up and also under the mainsheet base.. Heres some photos after the work.. It was pretty straight forward just laying up some carbon etc.. Not going to bother painting them yet as I get abit picky with the finish.. Thats for next winter... And the other little project that has been going on in the crazy little garage is the old mans Zephyr. We broug
  12. Went out I14 sailing, capsized then spent 20minutes on our side.. Then went out in the 3.7 and successfully broke the boat.. again some wood in the transom under the rudder plate finally shat itself, and the ply and framing under the Mainsheet cleat also decided that it was a good idea to have a rant and crap out... Now time to grind out the Bu#@erd wood and replace with carbon in the high strength areas. plan for the week: Monday: Yachting nz have a go day. Tuesday: Exams Wednesday: Study/grinding Thursday Carboning, Learn to sail at manly. Friday, fit the boat out
