  1. Chamberlains Bay has about a m of broken beer bottles on the bottom so other than being very protected bay from most angles its not great for holding unless you break through that and get a hold of the bottom. A legacy left for us by decades of commercial and pleasure boats just hiffing their bottles over the side. More the merrier when it comes to chain.
  2. Only cost me $400 in fines when I went under the Waiheke ferry (while underway) in a 4m RIB the night we won the cup in 95... The old Deodar wasnt up for catching us but Eagle was...

    She looks much more balanced in her original ketch setup. Nice early big volume cruiser.
  4. Nice one, great crew combo for the conditions.
  5. Does this mean the new pest, opps sorry, Post controls become the old post control rules given the problem has been resolved? Or at least a 90 day exemption on the new rule and see how it plays out?
  6. Time to break out the Princess Leia image?
  7. Pretty sharp looking fleet, will be some interesting racing. Great work SSANZ and all those that entered.
  8. From Ran Tan racing Facebook page - We have confirmation that the crew is now safely aboard the Mexican fishing boat! We can't say enough about the Coast Guard and other agencies that made this rescue a success. Their professionalism, as well as the fantastic decision making and actions of the guys on board made this possible. We are overwhelmed and so appreciative of the outpouring of support and wishes that have come our way in the last 24 hours. The Ran Tan family stretches far and wide. We have all been so lucky to be part of the ride! Looking forward to seeing the guys soon
  9. From Ran Tan racing Facebook page - An update on Ran Tan II. At 0530 this morning the keel let go completely and disappeared into the deep blue Pacific ocean. Ran Tan is still upright and stable in the slight seas. Liferaft and dinghy launched. Boys just had a cold beer, crackers and cheese. Waiting patiently for their next ride, a 1000 ton Mexican tuna boat out of Ensenada. They are about 4 hours away. Thank you so much for all the messages of support and encouragement. Unfortunately it looks like a sad end to a very fine yacht.
  10. I've been with AON for over 20 years with 2 keelers, an E7.4 and now a 90 year old classic launch. They have been great. Full racing cover on the yachts and 250nm off shore coverage for the launch although I wont be using it.
  11. Nope - Modern Plastics now at 9 Stanway Place, Ellerslie, Auckland 1051. He is generally pretty helpful.
  12. Keep them full, minimizes the air volume that will condensate water. Less air, less condensation.
  13. I'm not sure we should be posting our security tactics on a public forum?
