    Pier 21

    Only negative is Robertson's is a full service yard, so I don't think you can do any work yourself? Is that the case AS?
  2. What's the hull core? If it's timber or balsa then it could get bad quickly. I'd definitely get a survey & work out how far this might go. Once you dig onto it these issues can take on a life of their own. :-(
  3. I've got an Iridium Extreme for sale, surplus from a film job, little use, great condition. Has all it's extras, earphone, 240v & 12v charger, external aerial. Message me if you want a chat, still got 3 left I think
  4. Hiya all, anyone know about the salt springs shown on the chart at Rangi? is there anything visible, or ? thanks
  5. Always dangerous breaking out the Veuve days before the race I think?
  6. We put some soft foam in the gap between the saildrive & the hull. But it doesn't replace anything, just stops growth in that dead space. And it's soft enough to not put any load on the hull or leg. So it's just streamlining.
  7. Agree, Nyalic isn't the long term solution it's cracked up to be.
  8. Great read, keep up the good work!
  9. I'd look for the best yacht you can find in the flavor/size/class you're after, and see what you can buy it for. One that's had a refit, or is currently racing & well maintained. If you can't afford that, then buying a "fixer upper" will break you. Saving a bit of labour because you're handy doesn't help much really if any of the big ticket items are a problem. Engine, rig, sails, fridge, electrics.......... It goes on & on, and labour is not the big number in any of those areas.
  10. Drain the tank, check for water?

    Please no jokes about how much space required, BooBoo is a sensitive guy.
  12. We love the B&G stuff we put on Bad Kitty, we use Furuno & Raymarine on some of the work boats & I like the B&G/Simrad over both of those.
  13. Don't want to sound too cavalier, but welcome to owning an old boat?
  14. General Marine Services, Westhaven? Good guys.
  15. Natural selection in operating in full view.
  16. Anyone got the story behind the yacht on the beach?
  17. We sailed out of Okiwi/Whangapoa Thursday, don't think I'd sit this out in Arid Cove.
  18. Hiya, anyone got clues as to where the Pipi bed is? Looks like we might be in Whangaruru for a few days.
  19. Yeah but you carry lead around too!
  20. And currently a dive team working in Fiordland, living on a large boat, new dive team heli's in each week for a changeover and back to manually killing Undaria.
  21. We've never eradicated a marine pest once it's been introduced. That doesn't stop the crayon eaters in Wgtn spending eye watering amounts of money trying, like the tens of millions spend trying to kill off Undaria in the Chatam's where it was on the hull of a boat that sank. Still there, plus all around the place now.
  22. Matt P (IT) may have some of the rest of what came off Bad Kitty, a bottle of Diplomatico would probably get it out of his garage? He was selling it off, but if there's anything still there I imagine he'd like the space back?
  23. Take a mould off your's & knock a couple out?
