  1. Time for some maintenance...WOF time.
  2. This is our portable one. Simple press the button...can sit in cockpit, deck etc. Fully self contained. Battery needs a charge every few months.

  4. Google turned up this is response to a search for activity at Rotomahana YACHTS CAPSIZE MANY IN TROUBLE RESCUES OF "CREWS SAILS AND MASTS LOST The chief storm damage in Auckland occurred on the harbour on Saturday afternoon; Yachts competing in the Devonport Yacht Club's annual regatta felt the full force of a strong northeasterly wind and, although all events ; were started, at least 30 of the competitors failed to finish.

I've always had 2-stroke, but the 4-strokes are making a impact.

  11. OMG, some of us would love to be able to get them off.
  12. When you say anywhere in NZ, that implies a Trailer Yacht? .. is that correct
