  4. Mmm depression forming to north 27-28, and again Jan 1-2. Still a bit far out to be certain.
  5. Always love the NIWA forecasts, they pop them out here n there, but they never get evaluated. No one looks back to see how good they were. Where as we judge the Metsevice and other others like Predict Wind almost daily for its accuracy.
  6. Yeah but the new halyard will....
  7. Buy something like a Laser, spend a summer sailing off the beach, you will learn heaps.....an get a bit wet.
  8. Thanks guys, the victron was the one I was biasing too.
  9. I asked a rigger that just a couple of weeks an he said 'use knots'.
  10. Hi Looking at the collection of battery monitoring kit out there. Firstly do they offer much more than a good voltmeter and an understanding of what is a good, bad or ugly value? I have a analogy meter that you can guess the last 0.3-0.4 volts or there about. Also have a simple 2 battery system, start and house, charged by the alternator. As I have hole on the electric panel the Victron, Master Volt and Enerdrive units look a simple solution as they should go in the existing hole or do I just go for good digital meter to replace the analogy one. Then there is the BEP DC monitor
  11. Hasn't been as bad as forecast down here: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/power-cut-to-2000-coromandel-homes-as-hurricane-force-rain-and-wind-lash-north-island/EJ7PBYCD6NCDHCRWFRNJPUTCT4/
