  1. It's not rot they should be worried about. Teredo worm (shipworm) will attack the piles and eat though them.
  2. NYS - my brother and sister are unable to get home to see our dying mother. The earliest they can get into MIQ is late February which is very likely to be too late. Your moaning about being able to sail down here whenever you wanted to arrive and get straight into a MIQ hotel is quite frankly pissing me off. There are literally thousands of New Zealanders who would like to be able to just arrive and do their two weeks.

    "At the time of the crash, it was the only battery-powered glider in New Zealand." You'd have to assume they won't be selling too many more here in the near future.

    But my god it’s ugly. They must think it’s fast.
  5. I can't wait to see them out there. They're all good teams, the boats are amazing I think. I used to be a sceptic, but am now fully on-board with the concept and the close-in race courses. Bring it on!
  6. This guy is amazing. Donation made.
  7. I think the Wharengaere locals may have something to say about the sewage from 10 boats for 14 days being pumped into their front yard. It's pretty contained in that bay...
  8. Growing a mullet? Blair’s been a mullet head for a year or two now. Can’t take the Northland out of a boy...
  9. I had watched a few of their episodes on YouTube and am pretty happy they've decided to leave the country. They had no respect for lock-down rules or the social distancing measures taken under level 3 and were constantly whining about everything here unless they were getting a freebie in return for promoting it. Redneck, self entitled narcissists...
  10. I slacken them off, but seldom run them forward. I’m not that worried about a tiny speed loss when I’m cruising,

    Slight thread drift, but how do you dispose of an Epirb whose battery has long "expired" but still shows charge when you check the test button?
  12. But has ETNZ got the funds to survive through another six months or longer? I doubt it. I understand NYYC and INEOS are keen to get down to NZ as soon as they possibly can, and happy to go into quarantine for four weeks. Luna Rossa not so happy but that's probably understandable given the breakages they have had in boat 1.
