  4. Elana Connor is an amazing solo sailor from California, aboard a 34ft sloop called β€˜Windfola’ she was embarking on a solo circumnavigation of the world- raising awareness for kids in foster care, (as this is her story) when Covid19 hit and she found herself stranded in Tauranga for Lockdown level 4. She very quickly became part of our Family here at Tauranga Bridge Marina and has under gone some significant revamps to her vessel and her plans. With no ability to continue her mission to circumnavigate for a while, due to international restrictions, she has turned salt water into cha
  5. I remember the day it happened, those weather reports are grossly exaggerated, it might've been 20knots, gusting 25 at the most, nothing unusual for Tauranga. Have a look at the pictures in the Sunlive articles, that's not 50kts and 5m swell anywhere.... sounds like the article in the mag is looking for anything else to blame...

  9. Give Bruce at Bridge Marina Travelift a call, he'll give you his unadulterated opinion πŸ‘ 021 685 438
  10. RedLine, a part time racer down here in Tauranga, had FlowSilikon applied 3 years ago I think it was. One of the owners of the boat is the owner of the hardstand, so it always got a waterblast at the beginning of race season, and was looked after pretty well. They've removed it as they've found they cant go fast enough for it to self clean, it used to slime up pretty quickly. I think its got normal old hard antifoul on it now. To be fair, I think if you can dive and wipe your hull every 3 weeks or so, then it'd be a great product, but it wont look after itself....
  11. Slightly OT, but wow what a great resource this is... https://cruiseguide.co.nz/ Didn't know it existed lol. Might have to plan some time down in the sounds over xmas Thanks Wheels πŸ‘
  12. Hey welcome aboard guys! Great to see someone finally bought Blaydon Racer, very cool boat. I had the pleasure of talking with Nick Wilson, the original owner as he was prepping her for sale, he had it beached on the sand outside his home up the harbour, great guy, with a lot of love for his boat, I got the impression he was very sad about having to let her go. Where do you have her on the hard? I'd be keen t come by and say hi, and if you're ever at a loose end near Bridge Marina, pop in and have a coffee, C-pier. we're easy to spot, the only boat there to take up two berths! πŸ˜†
  13. Hah!, yes that would work too! πŸ˜„
  14. About the only other option is to filter out the Small talk topic from your "unread" results, the following technique is used on Sailing Anarchy forums to great effect. click the following link... http://crew.org.nz/forum/index.php?/discover/34/ It will take you to a "Stream" I created and shared. You can then make it your Default instead of the "Unread Content", and/or you can add it to your own profile to save and customize it further. This wont stop you seeing spammage of other topics, but it will stop you seeing anything posted in Small talk See attached picture.
  15. Yup we have an ATN one and its the bomb, well made, works brilliantly
