  1. We use something like this on Bad Kitty, works well & keeps the length of the 2:1 down. Not sure which flavour ours is, refer to Bart at NZ Rigging, came from him.
  2. This is particularly relevant. Are we going to exist in our own bubble of 4.? million, with incredibly difficult travel both in & out of NZ, and do almost no business with the rest of the world? While I don't pretend to have the answers to how we should do this, the future looks pretty bleak for our economy?
  3. Mmm, no pretty sure there's a lot of people that feel like that. 2 here anyway.
  4. Yep film industry down 100%, for at least 3 months & probably 6. Island cruising anyone?
  5. I'm certain that this will be much worse. Puff what's your take on the economic impact & knock on? Feels more like depression to me than a little old recession.
  6. Yep, it's pointless crystal ball gazing at present, but hey, not much else to do? 2 weeks quarantine in a tropical bay will look pretty good by June/July. Or by yesterday?
  7. OK let's give the twitbook group a miss then, didn't seem a good fit for me. So, I guess we just keep an eye on progress with the NZ & the Island borders, and see what happens. A week sailing up, then a week in quarantine would seem viable for 4-5 months away.
  8. Mmmm, can't find it? Is that the exact name? Ta,
  9. I know it's crystal ball gazing, but it's not like there's much else to do, what are we thinking about cruising offshore in a couple of months? May be nothing much else happening workwise!
  10. I ran out of Pinot, called in a favour & got a little drop off at Kennedy Park, apologies, didn't mean to wake anyone,
  11. Nice, thanks Strath. You watching Richard Edlin?
  12. Its' some sort of synthetic cabin liner, think it's made for marine use, furry soft stuff which starts off great but doesn't age that well. Like a lot of us I guess? Goes a bit mangy after time,
  13. And yes, stainless chain please! Look forward to catching up,
  14. Yeah was thinking of a vinyl sort of thing maybe, a bit thicker or on a thin backing maybe to help cover the lack of fairing? Still waiting for a clever boat interior finisher to pop up & solve me dilemma for me!
  15. Those 5kg glue's won't be horrible for me VB, might be a bit crappy for you though! OK so that's one option, replace. Anyone else? Come on, only 7 weeks 6 days to think it thru!
  16. So we've got front runner in two cabins, which I've grown to hate, who's got any goods ideas on a replacement? It's not faired that well under the frontrunner, but I guess we could revisit that. Or ? Thanks, and remember, we're nearly there now, only 7 weeks 6 days to go!

    I suspect for $39 they will be eye watering crap.
  18. General Marine Services in Westhaven.
  19. That's part of the decision making process when you buy a lifejacket! Probably worth another thread.
  20. Another vote for B & G here,
  21. Love bite? Like a friendly tickle from a 44 magnum, haha!

    apache cat

    Kotuku yes, Rehab no. Cation & Kotuku are quite similar I think, but Cation is owned by a sailor very involved in skiff sailing, and I think has a very disciplined approach to weight, which I imagine will pay off as they get the boat worked up. Roger Hill's current work in both sail & power cats is cutting edge, some beautiful examples of NZ boat building there.
