  1. Nice boat! I had a look at her when we were on the hunt for a new boat - she was a little too much on the racer side of racer / cruiser for us. But will be awesome for someone into a bit of regular racing. Good to see her move to a new owner. I’ve done a couple of races on her - she goes well!
  2. They are in custody after appearing in the District Court awaiting deportation.

  4. Hi - we used Strata Clean on our last boat and they did a really good job. Below is the instructions I got from the Altex paint rep about the preparation after scraping back: If the scraping 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,
  5. Any damage in the Auckland marinas after the tornado went through?

    Nanni Diesels

    Had a Nanni 21 in my Carpenter 29. Great little engine and easy to service yourself.
  9. Looks like 2656 is heading for a world of pain and dirty air....
  10. Carpenter 29s are a very boat too. Sail well and are good for cruising. Worth a look.

    New Boat

    She was launched in October 2000 - not sure if the hull sat around for a bit - there are pictures of her being built on board so I’ll see if there are dates on them. We’re having fun just getting to suss out all the systems and stuff. Looking forward to going away for Easter. we’re thrilled to finally get out hands on a 1050 - we’ve been chasing after one for a while. Hopefully we’ll see you out and about at some stage.
