  1. Interesting stats there. We have a couple of hundred remote sites (GPS, seismic, etc) and design them with a 7:1 ratio between rated panel output and the site consumption-draw. That is if the site draws 2 amps we put in 14 amps of panel. For marginal sites (hills that have morning cloud caps) etc we head towards 10:1. All are fixed orientations.
  2. Where the two lines meet you could put a block there and have the deck-winch line run through it to get 2:1 into the system.
  3. Best modification you can make for a trailer yacht is get high thrust prop.
  4. Work from the inside...... take lots of photos .
  5. Thanks guys, great to see you enjoying some puddle jumping. There should be some more pictures on the BOPTYS Facebook page. Congratulations to Will White and his crew on Panic Knot (Wairarapa), Didi 26, winners of the Alan Civil Memorial Race on Lake Rotoiti, NI, on Saturday 21st November. 2nd went to Piccolo, Farr 5000 (David and Leslie Goddard) and 3rd Blue Fire, N25 (Greg Waterhouse). FULL RACE RESULTS go to: https://www.boptys.net/regattas
  6. Hi Guys n Gurls It's time for the annual Alan Civil Classic on Lake Rotoiti, 21 Nov. Details can be found on https://www.boptys.net/regattas Due to the interest from the Sports Boats we are setting up a Sport Boat Div. (amendeded NOR and Sailing Instructions to follow) Big boats (A Div, multi and Sport boats) do 3 laps of the lake Middle size (B Div) do 2 laps Small size (C Div) do 1 lap Note as per the new vision from the NZTYA the oversize trailerable yachts like the N30 and Farr940 are also welcome. Div are based on NZTYA quidelines and Ratings https://www.nzt
  7. The NZTYA has a scheme with Crombie Lockwood in Tauranga. They maybe worthy of a call.
  8. Hey mate I’ve got a bunch of boats (4) wanting to do the Alan civil 50 miler .

    ive emailed the vice commodore last week but got no reply as yet .

    2 of the boats don’t quite comply and one complies but NZTYA got their undies in a twist and wouldn’t give it a registration . The boats in question are two Elliott 6.5s and one Shaw 750T , my boat Is a Shaw 750T too and has done the race before .

    if you could get the vice to get back to me that would be great and hopefully you will have 4 more boats entered !

  9. I used UHMWPE, UHMW to replace a wooden base under a winch, should work well also under a deck to take up loads.

    Yes we sure did....least we could (did) lift the board when we touched...
  11. Good questions I've been pondering a similar situation, looking at items like this; Renogy Battery Monitor or Mastervolt BattMan Lite Battery Meter. Any lessons or experience.....
