  1. Open CPN with a good satellite image. As good as good visibility.
  2. Hi Nico, if you can delay your departure till May you are much more likely to find a boat looking for crew. Feb is mid pacific cyclone season. Most insurance companies exclude cover during this time. Cheers.

    We used Durepox last year on the deck. Main reason I chose Durepox was I could get it colour matched to our paint colour. Was easy to use and has a very hard finish. I liked it. Also stripped and painted aluminium hatch covers and used on them, no primer needed. For non stick we sprinkled intergrip which worked fine. Tried mixing it in but didnt give the same grip as sprinkling it out a large salt shaker. I would recommend.
  4. I love the community knowledge. So good thanks heaps. Will let you know how I get on.
  5. Hi all, My wind sensor at the top of the mast was a casualty of the cyclone wind - no longer spinning. Can anyone tell me what brand it is. Its connected to a B&G instrument in the cockpit so Im guessing its one of those. Repairable or replace? Thanks Nathan Wind sensor.MOV
  6. I see that there is a sunk boat that was moored by harbour bridge. Can see the mast poking out. That was last weeks storm.
  7. We wont be using our swing mooring from May to end Oct 2023. Available for rent $50pw. Rated up to 15m. Lifted and inspected 2022. Very handy location directly opposite the Hobsonville boat ramp.
  8. Hi all, Does anybody have any recommendations for chainplate manufacturing? Did a little google search but nothing obvious. Auckland based. thanks
  9. We have insurance through club marine for a swing mooring at Hobsonville.
  10. Thanks Ex Machina, does resene tint it to a range of colours - I'll take a look at that option.
  11. 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.
  12. That is a great idea, there is a potential little business there. Plus drogues.
  13. Can you please contact me on nathanbirchnz@gmail.com
