  1. Hi all, Does anybody have any recommendations for chainplate manufacturing? Did a little google search but nothing obvious. Auckland based. thanks
  2. We have insurance through club marine for a swing mooring at Hobsonville.
  3. Thanks Ex Machina, does resene tint it to a range of colours - I'll take a look at that option.
  4. The limited range of paint colours is a frustration, esp when you can see what is available elsewhere in the world. International 'Interdeck' offers a grand total of 4 colours! I guess we are just a small market.
  5. That is a great idea, there is a potential little business there. Plus drogues.
  6. Can you please contact me on nathanbirchnz@gmail.com
  7. Shouldn't cruise ships be getting in on this action. How dumb is our govt. 14 day quarantine cruise from Aussie to NZ. Negative test before you get on and off the boat.
  8. Hi, I am looking at a boat that needs a teak deck removed, and will need some of the core replaced. Im happy to do the grunt work but would rely on professionals to do the core replacement and fibre glassing. Any recommendations on who would be good to approach about this? Upper north island. Thanks
  9. For someone exploring options it was worth a watch. I can handle bolt on keels but I do find it odd that skeg rudders aren't more common. Along with dinghy storage, it does seem like getting on and off the boat into the water is an after thought on a lot of bluewater boats. Def a marketing piece but what isnt.
  10. LOA unfortunately. I might nab that space at St Heliers while its free. $14000 a year times 10 years and boat is paid for.
  11. We have a swing mooring rated to 15m / 50ft. This is the max Auckland Transport allows. We like the look of a 52ft boat. From what I see renting a marina in the Auckland region requires approx $1200 pm. What the options for those of us with a limited supply of cash? Any ideas?
  12. I wonder what will happen when borders open up again and people can travel. Will the reverse happen as people realise they dont want their cash tied up, or the boat is not used as much as expected.
  13. Hi, In the market for a family cruiser to suit 2 adults, 3 teenagers. Need at least 3 cabins with one a bunk set up. For coastal cruising and offshore plans. Something generally set up preferred but ok if it needs some reasonable TLC. I'm scared of older screwed down teak decks. Budget up to $250k. If anyone is intending on selling please make contact. Been through the trademe options. Cheers Nathan
