  2. Was a massive bang and shock wave when it went off just after 6.30pm last night. Shook the house so much both the wife and I thought something had hit us here in Greenhithe by the the shops. https://www.facebook.com/250259695088969/posts/1770086979772892/ https://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/105835319/a-boat-fire-and-explosions-have-been-reported-in-auckland
  3. Awesome, thanks Matt, will call you Monday.
  4. Looking for recommended services in the Gulf Harbour area to fix a leak in the steering hydraulics at the fly bridge helm. Cheers

    Boat wifi

    Used a couple of these last week for an offsite meeting of 10 people (wanted to ensure secure wifi). Takes a data SIM card and supplies 4G speed. Powered by any 5V USB charger. Plan on taking one out on the boat over the holidays. https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/NETTPL7300/TP-Link-TL-M7300-LTE-Advanced-Mobile-Wi-Fi-Share-4

  8. Thanks for the suggestions. Nothing is coming up searching for dinghy minder so I'll take the thing apart and see what I'm dealing with.

    Bird deterents

    Slightly cheaper version https://www.amazon.com/Magnetic-Bird-Deterrant-by-Pest-B-GoneTM/dp/B071JX4C6D/ref=pd_sim_86_8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=1MHYS92TQXEE419BAHGN
  10. No, didn't think to grab one last time we were out. Its a plastic hub, like a car wheel without a tyre, mounted horizontally with the tow line looped around it and the line end going out through a hole in the transom. As the tow line is pulled out (by the dinghy when we're underway) it tensions up the internal spring so that it winds back in when we stop. Its like the internals of a retractable garden hose.
  11. After much goooogling, buggered if I can find the proper name of this thing. The spring loading inside the drum has given up and I'm looking for parts or replacement options. Anyone know? TIA.

  13. +1 on Force4. Picked up a really good condition (soft bottom) 2.6m off TradeMe for $500.
  14. From experience ... have a think about how you intend to stow it when sailing (tow vs foredeck). If its the foredeck make sure you get something that will fit easily up there and you are able to get around it when you need to.
