  1. A lot of people got a lot of work done on their boats there. Another example of pushing the budget boatie out. It’s been there along time.I bought my Trimaran from there early eighties and she had been there for years before that
  2. I could stand corrected as Toltec was launched 1974 hull deck and cabin built by Keith Eade so I was told
  3. Toltec has a shorter cabin and 3 windows we loved her for the longer cockpit and all the berths are 6ft5 as I am 6ft4 finding a boat with long berths can be challenging
  4. The mould was taken off the 5th one built I think they built about 65 glass ones Toltec was number 4
  5. Check out Sailing Monanaroa YouTube a really well set up Chico
  6. Have some Kaimana gear got sick of having gear that only lasted 2 years it is heavier .Just done 2 offshore trips was dry and warm with the right gear underneath its 5 years old paid 650 dollars for good value is bigger to travel with.
  7. I own Toltec but up in Kerikeri there seen about 5 up here
  8. A few years ago I did a lot of racing on Fully Charged out of Tauranga. We did a lot of coastal sailing wet weather gear was watertight for about a year so bought a few sets.We ended up going to the Kaiwaka gear hard wearing not as comfortable but water tight for quarter of the price and you can spend the change on merino to keep warm
  9. There is one just turned up on Facebook Felix Steglich nz sailing gear buy sell swap 15000 might be worth a look
  10. You will need insurance of some sort .Marinas haul out and a lot of club moorings you always have to provide a certificate of insurance before they let you in.Having a old wooden Chico we are now being screwed by insurance has almost doubled in 2 years and half the cover .That being said we suck it up and pay as it is not the loss of your boat it is the damage you can cause to others.Another thing to remember if you wreck you boat you are responsible for the removal of the wreck and damage ie diesel around a mussel farm this is said as I have experienced a a total loss and wreck removal not ch
  11. I put them on my Chico which has a short boom I find them great just drop the main and clean up at anchor.I have a shock cord system and let them go and have a couple of plastic cover hooks by the goose neck to hook them over. I started out with the blocks tied to the spreaders .I found that if I moved the blocks away from the mast it worked a whole lot better and weren’t prone to slap against the mast.Ive have had the mast out a couple of years ago so mounted the blocks on the spreaders .Just makes life that little easier
  12. Some of the later Noelex had pop tops think headroom is about 5ft 8.Personally I would go for the Noelex you pay a bit more but they hold their value only boat I got my money back.Make sure you get a braked trailer.

    Does anyone know where you can get a decent sponge for sponging out the bilges they all seem non absorbing now days.Bought up 5 Good ones about 5 years ago can’t seem to get them anymore
  15. Had my bill through the other day gone from $630 a year to over$900 and less cover on the boat is well .Over 25 years old.( 1975) the rig and sails aren’t covered unless under 5 Years old .8years since we did all rigging and new sails.Have decided to suck it up as you need insurance now days.Bottom line they don’t want to insure boats over 25 years.I need to have it to be on my pile Mooring,haul out and access to marinas you basically can’t do without it.Thing to remember with having 3rd party is its a bummer to lose your boat but are they going to pay for the removal of your wreck which could
