  1. 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
  2. The NZTYA has a scheme with Crombie Lockwood in Tauranga. They maybe worthy of a call.
  3. 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...
  5. 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.....
  6. The NZ Trailer Yacht Assoc runs a scheme thru Crombie Lockdown in Tauranga. There maybe scope there...?
  7. Any chance these can be set up as a Zoom meeting, so those of us 300 km away can listen in ?
  8. If going for the 'soft floor', the big improvement is having a inflatable keel. Makes a big difference to the rowing abilities.
  9. Did I hear correctly: ETNZ boss= Dalton AC event boss= Dalton

    Sigrid 6

    I was thinking about the fit, if you have to get a couple of inches removed.

    Sigrid 6

    They will be very similar.... a couple of extra or missing inches could be very annoying in the long term.
  12. Note on Windyty you can select between 2 models when using a laptop or desktop. Doesn't appear you can on a tablet, unless the option is buried in a menu I haven't found.
  13. The formation of many Units started after local tradgies (capsized Sea Scout cutter here). Very well meaning volunteers have underpinned what has grown to be the CG we know now. One hell of a lot of growing pains along the way .... some good and bad days during that voyage. Today we have a maturing organisation that's providing NZ with an inshore rescue service, for better or worse.

    Jigsaw blades?

    Used to cut a insert in bulkhead for GPS chart plotter, maybe 6-8 mm thick.

    Check out the diamond coated ones ... http://www.linbide.co.nz/product.php?p=345 Turn the glass to butter.
  17. Hi I have a SD20, as I understand it the zinc ones should used in saltwater and a magnesium based one in fresh water. The boat is kept on a trailer and used mostly in Lake Rotoiti (freshwater with some geothermal influence). We also put her in the sea for a month or so. Similar for the motor ones Yanmar. Thanks

    Old life raft

    Having done several HUET courses and a offshore survival course I'd agree go have a play .... capsize it, see if you can get in it with some gear on ....
  21. iPad user, not noticed any issues.
  22. Check out tables like this to see what surfaces it will work on; http://www.vanderbilt.eu/docs/Trebla_Services_Emissie_Tabel.pdf Looks like it's preset to 0.95. http://en.benetechco.com/en/products/infrared-thermometer-gm320.html
