  1. I expect it will be across the gulf in 18 months. We will need to find ways to live with it. Control rather than eradicate
  2. The s0ftc0cks will want every one wearing lifejackets next. It's a disgrace to the newzild culture of dying like men. White men. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ
  3. Updated to include power boat options
  4. I have summarised this thread into this post - you can find links to the survey, links to the live response summary and the link to a spreadsheet of results that will be udated monthly. Hi all. Insurance questions are a perennial subject. The idea of this survey is to provide some data that Crew-ites and those who drop by can use. You can find the survey here. No-one responding will be named or identified. If you want your information deleted, let me know by private message. No particular insurance provider will be endorsed or derided in the survey summary. You can
  5. Do they stipulate the temperature setting of the beer fridge and brand of rum as well? ๐Ÿคจ
  6. Update. Looks like a bit of sense will be applied and public moorings may be made available. https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/514752/aotea-great-barrier-island-businesses-welcome-new-moorings-for-boaties-hit-by-caulerpa-ban
  7. enjineer, surely? Now I know that, I'll type slowly so you can follow... ๐Ÿ˜†
  8. Just furl the jib and it will be accessable, surely ๐Ÿ˜ For my sins I once managed a tertiary provider of training to the plumbing and gas industry. The board was, to put it succinctly, a collection of geriatric iliterates with a fondness for gin and ensuring the continued protected status of thier businesses. It may have changed, but I see no evidence.
  9. Loads of data, no information. Sounds like my workplace
  10. drives activity in the medical industry. And divorce lawyers.
  11. no, thats the impact across the entire economy. It includes labour, power companies, food sales, taxis, supermarkets, hookers, the casino... Lets contextualise further. Canterbury's GDP in 2022 was almost $45,000m (https://webrear.mbie.govt.nz/theme/gdp-totals/map/barchart/2022/canterbury?accessedvia=canterbury&left-zoom=1&right-transform=absolute). Sail GP economic activity has been estimated at around $4.5m, so therefore represents approximately 0.01% of GDP for the year. Margin of error stuff. Big in raw numbers, but not substantial in context. Or, in common sens
  12. And this, friends, is part of why I went to kerosene...
  13. no, what I am saying is that the rugby and six60 each produced 75% of what the SailGP did with 100% less govt funding. Taking it further, they produced that at one-day events, so on a pe- day basis they actuially exceeded SailGP by around 50% each. And no wrangling about wildlife.
  14. While we are applying science, here's some from the dismal science. SailGP is estimated to have generated a nett economic benefit to Christchurch of about $1m. Nett local and national government contribution to the event was approximately $2.05m. So a nett $0.50 of benefit for every $1 invested. Yes, it generated an estimated $4m of activity, but half of that was money from govt - in other words govt paid people to go and spend. "Fresh Info said the estimated net benefit to the city - which measured the gross benefits minus the gross costs of hosting the event - was more than $1m
  15. perhaps this might assist those afflicted types
  16. As sighted by my brother this afternoon
  17. is this a case in point? ๐Ÿ˜
  18. I feel better about my cell phone now.
  19. 100a/hrs a day? Bloody hell, I'm even more put off starlink...
  20. I'm less worried about AI replacing work than I am about AI replacing democracies. I will allow that, in our case, AI would probably work better than the type currently on the Treasury benches.
  21. Hi TimeOut thanks for dropping in. The build has taught me lot, but Im a bit of an old dog and new tricks are getting tougher. The build is essentially as described earlier. I am considering V2.01 which would be based on a 4B but with 8gb, not the 2gb onboard the present CPU. I'd also go full into the new (as in, not released yet) McArthur HAT to have everything under one roof so to speak. It's likely this will happen in a different yacht (Mrs Aardvark wants more elbow room) so not soon. I made a conscious decision to run very simple so no touch screen, and the keyboard and
  22. Is it the raw seawater pump, or the engine pump? Either way, you can get a brand new replacement for 25% of that repair cost
  23. I think they put the decimal point in the wrong place.
  24. Depending on your risk appetite, AliExpress has options at 25% of the wallas unit.
