  1. Zatara stopped at Minerva, therefore restarting their clock. They released a comprehensive video of Fiji's "Blue Lanes" initiative. Something that could easily be modified and adopted to apply here. Based on where our current MIQ facilities are located, near large hospitals, hence why Queenstown wasn't utilised, I wouldn't expect this government to allow en mass Q at Opua.
  2. We have run the prop speed program in the past. Works a treat, only thing I would say is that we reapplied yearly do an over night on the Floating Dock sorted us between 2 yearly hull antifoul.

  10. Crikey, 94 pages, that will require more attention with a few less quite rums than currently consumed. Thanks for the link.
  11. Problem you need to consider with the soft shakle option Ed, is the tolerance you have above the headboard to the crane. I have know those who tie a bowline from a friction ring, down side is its never going to be a constant for luff tension.

  20. +1 for the Pelagic, we have the actuator running off B&G NAC3. This was to be a cheaper option before going to a hydraulic drive. Very impressed so far, the hydraulic upgrade has been almost forgotten about.
