  1. Yip - it’s “thirty to two - no matter who” compression rates have changed multiple times over the years, but the emphasis is on pushing originated blood around the system. If the blood isn’t moving, then nothing is getting oxygen.
  2. https://sites.google.com/a/lotus106.com/www/home a bit about the boat.
  3. Just spotted the header at the top of the page about IT handing over the baton. Just wanted to say thanks for all the great work over the years. I’m sure the rest of the Crew.Orgers will agree. cheers
  4. Yeah if you’re just getting rid ofit then the same size or slightly bigger to drill it out - the key is to have something blocking up the hole that the guide bit can drill into to stabilise the hole saw.
  5. If you have a blank for the through hull - or put a wooden plug in and cut it off flush, then you can use a hole saw just slightly smaller than the through hull so you then easily pull out the remainder. Or if the new hole / fitting is going to be slightly larger you can just drill to that size.
  6. Just got this notification from Gulf Harbour: Please find links below for the 2022 Gulf Harbour Marina Scheme Operating Budget along with the schedule of applicable annual charges for the 2022 year. As a result of the Manager negotiating a reduction in Council Ground Rent (backdated to 2017), a once-off refund and reduced onward fee has resulted in the 2022 budget seeing a decrease in berth fees of 16.4% over 2021. The budget does not call for any increase in contributions to MRF over last year’s contributions. Contributions to the MRF have not been increased for s
  7. What are class 1 and class 2 splices? Is it different techniques?
  8. No offence intended. It’s just a bit of a joke I have calling them Suzuki police or Kia police as they are often driving down the Hutt highway side by side at 90k with a big line of cars behind them. Making sure everyone is obeying the law.
  9. Ha! yeah - good old predictive text..... most Skodas should be blasted though - along with the Suzuki swift’s, Demeos,and the Kia police - buts another thread I think
  10. This was the information given to me by the Altex paint rep on scraping or sodablasting back to the gel coat: If the scrapping method of removal is chosen and once all of the old antifouling has been removed it will leave a shiney finish on the grey primer undercoat, this must be removed , and we recommend machine sanding with 80 grit dry paper. This will remove the shine and yield a coarse surface texture for the new paint system to adhere. · Once the sanding is complete, remove all of the sanding dust, a wipe over with a damp cloth that has been dampened with fresh clean wa

    The thing is that it’s not a ‘this or that’ issue. The rich elite that fund these teams do it because of the challenge that the Americas cup brings, but it’s not as though they choose to yacht race instead of investing the money in public services or social needs, if they weren’t racing they would just keep the money to invest in their business to make more money. so I figure that we may as well just enjoy the show.

    Yes you are allowed to ‘hunt’ in match racing, so bearing down to leeward to seek a penalty is allowed. They just weren’t close enough really.
  14. So Yesterday I put it through an equalisation charge, and then reset the amps to zero. LoBat indication has gone and it seems to all be working okay. thanks Wheels.
