    What's with the K prefix on some lots of sail numbers I see locally? In international designation 'K' used to be short for 'UK', and I thought kiwi boats were 'NZL'?

  6. My previous headsails included a too-big #1 and a too-small #2 and lots of sagging and poor performance in a freesh breeze and when half furled. SO for my new headsail I went for half between in terms of area and with a reasonably high-cut foot, going towards a yankee, but not quite. Benefits of this (for cruising) are higher foot = better visibility under sail. But more importantly it's a better reaching sail (leech less likely to curl in and stall) and also when I start to furl it the higher sheet angle gives me more tolerance as I start to move the cars forward i.e. I can furl it furthe
  7. Yeah that can be a suprisingly nasty little piece of water, never really worked it out, nothing remarkable about the seabed e.g. sudden shallowing. Maybe water getting trapped between the peninsula to the south and Orewa beach to the west. But can be much worse than it's counterpart S of the peninsula.

    Last time I had propspeed applied during a liftout it cost approx. $100. That's 1 tank of petrol or about a fifth of a big night out. Hardly seems worth dicking around trying to do a DIY job.
