  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.

    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.

    That's the email I got from GH Marina as I have my boat there. I'm not local to there so you'll need to go and have a look yourself for damage sorry.

    Marine BBQ

    +1 Cheap and marine don't really go together. The best you can probably do is a quality second hand unit. I bought and sold a rail mount Magma on TradeMe (actually sold it for more than it cost me).
  20. Possibly if they're on different versions of iOS. Maybe try hotspot by bluetooth compared with wifi.
  21. I've seen the Navionics app working on a wifi only iPad when "hot spot" connected to a phone with GPS. Have you tried that? Downside is using up the battery on both devices at the same time.
  22. How many players does it take to change a bulb?
  23. Been "dunny"d here before http://crew.org.nz/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=23863 BTW IT, search seems to be broken.
  24. +1 on Force4. Picked up a really good condition (soft bottom) 2.6m off TradeMe for $500.
