  1. I’ve been on that ferry many times…
  2. Ferry not at fault - hit broadsides by a fast travelling motor boat. One account has it having two 300HP outboards (while also saying it was a jet boat!). Ferry skipper seriously injured

    I only watched Saturday though- I have just heard it wasn’t on YT Sunday which if true is very weird.

    I’ve watched every round, including Lyttelton, on YouTube- no adverts, full (slightly annoying) commentary but easy to watch.
  5. And me, Wednesday evening a couple of weeks ago. It used to be a popular spot for them, then nothing for a few years. I doubt it’s aimed at the yacht clubs, more just North Shore into western suburbs route.
  6. All good Zoz - we’re all a bit sailing time deprived right now
  7. I’m happy to answer them Zoz, as it didn’t say to stick a root vegetable up every exhaust. It was in response to a particular sub-section of boat owners that run their generators all night. I’m sure a small number of yacht owners also run their engines to charge the batteries and get the water hot.
  8. A sad indictment on you Zozza to judge a large number of people using such a sweeping generalisation simply by the type of boat they are on.
  9. But surely he could have returned to base earlier as the forecast worsened?
  10. I did a slow transition over a couple of years from old ST60 gear on Seatalk to the i70, i60, p70 controllers, autopilot and a new chart plotter on STNG. Buy the iTc 5 converter first so that all the old gear plays nicely with Seatalk NG and buy the new bits as you can afford it. I just took my time and looked for bargains on eBay and overall (including shipping) I saved around 50% on NZ RRP. Much of that was before the new GST capture rules however. Worked well for me, and the newer Raymarine gear is perfect for me (not a racer).
  11. I wouldn't cross the Cook Strait on that thing even if the skipper was paying me https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/127866621/the-pirate-boat-of-picton-taking-protesters-to-wellington
  12. Like free on-street parking outside your house?
