  1. We added this setup to Provincial Cowboy and opened the front of the pulpit at the same time. Quite light and very functional. We fly anything up to a MH Code Zero on a furler off the end and the kids use it as a diving platform. Once we added an anchor straightener to the Manson, it was perfect. The inner bobstay is a solid strut to take compression from the anchor loads, and also any halyard loads. I am not sure it's really needed for anchoring but it means we don't need to add the outer bobstay unless racing. Built by Chris Smith (Boatsmith) - he has done a few like this includin
  2. We are selling our Hall Spars carbon mast that came with Kaizen. Kaizen is a Farr36OD based in Auckland. The listing is on Trademe https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/boats-marine/parts-accessories/other/listing/4103379985 There is the possibility to buy the alloy boom and carbon prod. We have recently gone taller with the mast and longer with the prod. The mast would suit a Y11 or similar size boat, perhaps 10.5m up to 12m. The mainsail luff length is 15.2m. We have had some work done professionaly on the rig in NZ since importing the boat, including fitting an Antal m
  3. Jon’s right. As part of the PHRF committee we have a system in place this week to quickly review and process the applications that are coming through, under the watchful eye of Mark. So don’t let that stop you entering the triple series today (Wednesday). Looks like a great fleet for Saturday already.
  4. The AIS transmission is from whichever VHF aerial you plug your AIS into - on yachts it's usually masthead via the splitter. Hence the distance. The GPS aerial under your deck just provides your position to the AIS unit. Ours is the same, GPS under the deck on the GRP Ross 40. But we had to mount it outside on the all carbon boat.
  5. Hi, does this work for when a sail is hanked on in the foredeck but not being used? Is that how you use it? If so I am keen
  6. What make is it? I have a brand new TMC bowl (from Burnsco) that we no longer need - we only wanted the base and pump mechanism

    SSANZ Race D

    Ha. Wow throw him under the bus why don't you Jon!!
  8. RAYC Sailing Committee met last night to work through Spetember and October events. Gold Cup race provisionaly to be delayed to April 2022 (RAYC). To be confirmed shortly. Not sure on Spring Regatta. I think it's safe to say that there won't be any Auckland events that weekend of 25/9.
  9. In place of now-cancelled Akl-Noumea Race. This is an extract from RAYC/Suellen’s email today: RAYC Update 10/9/21 - Round the Northern Island Fully Crewed Not to be confused with the SSANZ RNI Race which is shorthanded, this version of the race (which has the full support of the SSANZ committee), will be fully crewed and with only one stopover, or none at all based on your feedback. We are proposing the run this race at the end of the season, giving enough time for those to recover from the SSANZ Northern Triangle, and before it gets tooooooooo cold. Stopover opt
  10. Nice. What boat are they going on to?
  11. My family farmed nearby Wharehunga on Arapawa Island for several decades - my mother grew up there. Wharehunga looks out at Pickersgill and it's a special part of the world. As a boy in the sounds my early memories are of a lot more fish but a lot less bush so it's great to see these projects restoring to how it should be. Another project is the peninsular in Picton Harbour, Kaipupu, where the locals work with DOC to restore native wildlife to Picton surrounds. It's a neverending challenge to stop predators swimming around the fence ends. For Aucklanders, if you haven't been to Rotoroa
  12. Yes I went down G Pier earlier in the week. Gate pass worked as usual. I think you could put it down as exercise. Last time I didn’t get there under L4 but I like to check things every week.
  13. Thanks, that may well be correct for the hulls. Geoff only told me about the deck/cabin mould coming from Not Guilty as above - the PC and ML cabins are quite different.

    If you can't find it, there is this one is from 2014 on the LSD FB page - https://www.facebook.com/livesaildie.official/photos/a.707829505932156/707831552598618
  15. Haha. Yeah well it was actually attached but the Martin Breaker…..broke….as we were hoisting. Then it went again after it was reattached. I have just been down to WH on a very chilly Sunday morning to fix it. A bit annoying but fortunately for us we didn’t lose much as the breeze was pretty light. All these things are newly installed so we are still figuring things out. All in all a pretty nice day out on Kaizen.
