  1. 77kg min class weight, so any existing hull about double what you could build a similar sized ply row boat.
  2. Guessing it’s in reverse order to what you would think, given KM is asking the question. Rope (strongest (2T break load ??)), 6mm chain. 8mm link, with the 10mm SS link being weakest.
  3. I’ve found Louise? and Mike? (Nzsailing) are very helpful, just ring them and they’ll let you know what they’ve got coming in, or other options/advice.
  4. I’d buy a Rooster semi dry again, mines still going after 10 years of semi regular club use in dinghies. Also prefer to wear it keel boat sailing, find it warmer and drier than my full (and much more expensive) jacket.
  5. Think we had 5mm ish (where it went through a clutch), with the cover stripped off on the rest of the line. On an SR. Got a thrashing, and was fairly old (7years plus)and never broke. Possibly originally set up by Booboo. Always thought it might be a good idea to feed some bungy into the core for a couple of meters just to keep it a little taught when hoisting as a MH, can tangle using a MHO. Never got round to it.
  6. Worth considering a “check” line on a MH halyard to turn it into a 3/4, I.e a 3mm line that feeds down the in the 3/4 halyard box with a low friction ring that the MH halyard feeds through. Pull it on and a MH halyard turns into a 3/4. On a SR26 everything was 6mm, apart from the mainsheet and jib sheet. No complaints.

    Youngman Richardson (sell all sorts of civil/construction small machinery) will sell it, but wouldn’t think it’s cheap.
  8. Wanting to crew on Wed nights out of Westhaven, and Coastal. Happy at any position from bow to ballast. Most recently was bow for Gale Force in the RNZYS winter series, but she's now in cruising mode for the summer, and have done a variety of sailing in the past. Completed the last 10+ coastals on boats from 60ft to 26ft. 27yo, fairly quiet demeanor. Reply back on Crew.org, or 021 428 741.
  9. Rattle n Rum This was our first real race on the Rattle since Noisy brought it last year, and we probably should have taken it out a few more times beforehand with the race sails. The bulk of the pre race was spent sailing around looking at other SR's to see what headsail they had on, we weren't even sure if the 10kts we had was too much for the No.1 2 handed. Ended up going for the No. 2 pre start (wrong call, made worse by the wind easing rapidly). By the time we had the zero set up, was 2 minutes to the start, and ended up too far down the line and a little late. Had the zero out of t
  10. Did you finally realise the new mast didn't match the interior trim.
