  1. An older southern pacific donut style boat with a centre seat/thwart. Had a couple empty 23litre tote tanks in the front with my gear bag on top. 2 hp Yammie on the back jumped in and sat on the seat facing towards motor but my bag was pushing me back towards the motor so no clearance to pull start... so I moved sideways to pontoon ( facepalm)... and flipped it over backwards...as I said idiot....don't be an idiot. After almost 45 years mucking about in boats you would think I would have learnt!
  2. 182NM down the rhumb line I think
  3. Solo Delivery Waikawa - Lyttelton - Ross 30 Ballistic Got up 3.00am Friday morning and drove to Picton from Christchurch , arriving at 8.30am, quick stop at Picton supermarket for delivery trip food. Caught Cougar water taxi service from Picton to Resolution Bay, Queen Charlotte where boat was moored. Grabbed some tote tanks etc and dinghy. Inflated dinghy and loaded dinghy to get out to mooring. 15 metres offshore and flipped said dinghy....gurgle ... and who was the idiot who didn't close their 110 litre gear bag properly.... now a 2hp motor drowned... wet gear, wet sleeping bag and a
  4. Zeus 3 7 correct- I had Link Android app working perfectly and then did the latest Zeus 3 Version: 20.0.1 software upgrade as IT said above and it stopped working. Haven't been able to get it to connect since...think I need to start from scratch again. The B&G app crashes as previously described but need to try IT solution first.
  5. just found this as well -https://www.c-map.com/support/?guideTitle=HOW-TO-SYNC-YOUR-B%26G-CHARTPLOTTER-AND-MOBILE-DEVICE-(SMARTPHONE-OR-TABLET)-USING-B%26G-COMPANION-APP&guideId=535-233
  6. Lastest android version i see is above version and talks about last updated August 24, 2020
  7. for apple or for android from playstore? - latest version of Link app is v4.1.0(44) I see
  8. Lateral what software are you referring to here? Version History 4.3.6 22 Jan 2021 Fixed the Mirroring and Remote Control experience. Chart-plotters are now mirrored in fullscreen once again. Added support for Local Network Access permissions. Link will now request access to your local network to communicate with your Marine devices, enabling devices to be automatically discovered and used by the apps features.
  9. Have just tried to get through to Navico support re B&G app, wireless connectivity and Link app outstanding issues (25 minute wait B&G tech support line- gave up). Anyone know anything about any updates. I cannot get B&G app to link to Zeus via QR code - app just crashes after scanning code. Have checked Link app in playstore and I am running latest version.
  10. I see in 3.06 Cat 2 and 3 are now every 2 years. I thought Cat 2 was every three years?
  11. This is what I'm using...easy to clean. Will need a recoat shortly.
  12. Prime... and follow timing/drying recommendations
  13. Typically, internal antennae will shoot through/ receive through glass/foam, ply etc with no issues. Metals not so much. An external antennae will be more accurate. A little concerned re solar panel location. As others have said best to simply do a temporary test in each of the various options.
  14. Zozza, what is the boat made of and what would be directly above Unit....i.e. winches etc?
  15. Just a quick update as I now understand it via Navico B&G tech support ALK today. The link app is/was apparently suppose to be supeceded by a new product/app in Q3 of this 2021 but due to customer demand/outcry is to be retained in the interim. Navico is working with link app developers to remedy curent bug in app to fix current inability to connect for users. As of today this is apparently to occur in the next 10 days approximately. A new/updated version of link will be availble via your app store which should address connectivity issues. We talked about B&G app inability t
  16. We purchased in late December 2020 - used Xmas cruise - this is an excellent dinghy, capable of carrying four persons and gear with ease - ideal ship to shore for 4 persons or for 2 - 3 persons fishing. Too many dinghies - must sell. The Happy Kiwi BD Series is a premium high-quality inflatable boat that offers the best of both worlds, compact and lightweight while offering extreme durability, including reinforced high strength floor and inflatable V hull providing better stability and ride. These lightweight inflatable keelboats are tough enough to be used in most types of water,
  17. I think I have the same problem on a Zeus 3 - 7 - it use to mirror to my Samsung A7 via the link app faultlessly and since a most recent software upgrade I can't get it to connect (I even deleted link app and reloaded). Use to connect fine and was a fantastic feature and one of the key reasons I bought the unit. I have tried manually loading as per screen instructions for LINk app also. As IT says I could do everything via the phone screen other than AP inputs. I could even adjust AP sensitivity settings etc. on the fly while navigating a route just as if I was using the touch screen or

    foredeck hatch

    Plus one for Cule....awesome service
  19. In Marlborough last Summer harbourmaster and associated agencies were diving on moored craft. We were rafted up with Rogue, Clearvision and a 1020. The inspecting free-diver simply called out a score from 1-4 with one. We all scored 1 or 2. Diver almost skewered himself on stainless trailing tip on Ballistic. I think the whole exercise was intended as educational really.
  20. Hugo Boss has now damaged the starboard rudder...
  21. need a bit more info- what sort of panels and what sort of regulator/BMS?
  22. "Should be interesting to see the 2 theories line up against each other." No doubt Mr. Roper has plenty of experience. Will be interesting to see.
  23. Hard to believe Dan leech would get target weight wrong. He has a bit of experience designing and building skiffs.
