  1. Dean Kennedy just did a survey for me few weeks back and I couldnt be happier
  2. Hi yes there is a new Bistro Licensee and the club will be open from Labour Weekend. Currently its undergoing to some much needed refurbishment
  3. My poor baby. Addem, might want to tell them to go easy on their first race, last time she was down there they broke the rig on the first outing back in 90s I believe
  4. Ill let the skipper know that start was noted, so thanks for the kind words. Had a few smiles on board as we cleared out... pity no more M40 to play with though I saw a red flag up between 2 other boats after we crossed the line, nothing to do with us, not sure if it getting progressed
  5. Its come in and of the harbour often over the passed while, looks bit like a bathtub compared to modern boats. That article is just more clickbait. I get surprised to see CG boats out in the gulf sometimes too...guess they must just be doing what they do, same as this ole girl.
  6. Pretty sure it was carbon over foam, which means It'll prob go join poor ole Ran Tan in the big pacific garbage patch....
  7. Yea Im not sure, I watched the frigate come in last night and thought same thing as POAL was closed. The frigate turned around off Devonport and then want back out the channel. They must have known the port was closed. It was absolutely blowing its tits off when it came in. Can only think it came in to drop him off by rib, but also wondered why they came all the way in to do that. From when it came into the harbour to when it left was not very long, 30 minutes or so.
  8. The Frigate left right on sunset, was quite an odd sight watching is vanish into the mist. Local at Barrier told me, it broke its mooring and hit rocks/land, mayday went out, they were waiting till full tide to free it, but somehow ts got off on its own accord and headed out to sea. Not sure if owner was on or off boat at the time it freed itself.
  9. I was unable to attend but am told that in the second meeting the chair was difficult in regards to letting the pro Landing people attending from speaking or making their points and the vote was held 5-2 to close the Landing. It was explained to me as a 'railroading' Its now a done deal
  10. HI any update from the meeting?
  11. Ive had nothing but great service. It is sorely needed, esp for raft owners
  12. Have to say, I slept like a baby downstairs on the return on one of the Melges.....
  13. Swirly World lost a skeg or part of one and started taking on water, he started heading north from wherever he was and managed to locate a ship. He was rescued and Swirly World sank. As Booboo said, it may have been rudder damage, but he was taking on water and only had manual bilge pumps, plus manual water maker pumps... life would have got quite tiring quite quickly. That's my understanding
  14. Enertec Marine Limited do the servicing up here Adam, they are great to deal with Cheers
