  1. Hi I have a B&G radar i would like to sell. interested?? craig 0212299711
  2. Briski geared folding prop. I has been on a yanmar 3gm30 sd20 but should fit a volvo. 410mm dia $450.00 0212299711
  3. Hi I am keen on doing route 66 single handed, Has anyone got a small liferaft with a current cert I can use for 3-5th March. Preferably in a valance 0212299711
  4. Hi 830 Our mainsheet is in the middle of the cockpit so loads a little higher. We run a 6:1 with a 6:1 fine tune which should give a 36:1 fine tune. However, when the going gets tough we run the mainsheet up to the windward sheet winch. This works well for shorthanded sailing as you can ease the main and still have some control. They certainly can be hard work at times
  5. I spent a bit of time trying to get seatalk into my pc and finally found that my Raymarine E7D could output nmea0183 without any convertors in the system. Just had to go into the menu and turn on the nmea 0183 function. Then I used a $30 serial to usb convertor and bingo i had the info in opencpn I think your A series uses similar soft ware so it probably does the same thing.
  6. Matt I'm collecting info to help with routing in predict wind so will see how it pans out. On your video you show laylines and % polar information, What plug in have you used to display that?
  7. HI Matt That's exactly the process I am currently using, Takes a while to get the boats best performance in different conditions, I have only collected data from 1 race so far. Working my way through open cpn and what it can do, Has anyone compared opencpn with expedition? I suspect Booboo will get you up to speed faster than a set of polars.
  8. Hi IT I'm currently trying to put some E1050 polars together but its all new to me. I would be very interested in any other info that comes out of your request. there is a bit of variation from boat to boat but essentially they fall into either modified or not modified versions. What is your interest in 1050 polars?
  9. I ( Gale Force) Finished a minute or so ahead of Truxton who is shown to finish at 01:53:31. so my guess is around 1:52 am . Don't think this changes the single handed results but sure is confusing.
  10. No Gale Force this weekend I'm going to Gisborne on the Truxton Enjoy
  11. Thanks to all for a great weekend, good food and good company. Especially Andrew and the organisers and Grant and His Daughter on the Watchman. I had a great sail home, boat was trucking along, Crossed tacks with the Watchman at Torbay bouy. I saw the catamaran chasing hard and closing quickly on the reach after Torbay bouy. But then he peeled off towards Tiri. Guess Charlie broke something, Be good to hear what happened. Rolled around A bouy and laid Rangi Light. Then had a drag race to the finish with the Watchman. He seemed to be able to point a little higher and laid the finish, I had
