  1. I have seen a frustrated PRO call a individual recall when 80odd boats were well over but a couple were way behind i think they only have to be able to identify who is over to call it…..so if you sure that only 3 weren’t over then the remaining boats are individually recalled a lot of grumpy kids that day hahahahhaa
  2. I bet they are!! looks like a fun race - bummer life got in my way!!
  3. The boys on Shimmer must be stoked!! Certainly NOT Townson cruiser conditions especially the last section. Only 8minutes behind the nearest Y11 on line - 1st on corrected. - Probably did it all with a roast chicken and hot scones from the galley. Well Done guys great result!! Hmmm will this kill their Hcap and give us a chance in the SANZ?
  4. Yea I know a few have done miles but from my understanding you'd want to find one that was built for it - Daydream is build pretty grunty - triple skin/Glassed, big keel floors and 100mm cntr stringers three windows etc so im pretty comfortable just what would be involved in inspections etc. I read that book! - that was the seed for my mate and I - a figure eight and invite friends etc for legs...… the book is awesome,, from memory they hanked on a storm jib at the top of the north island and it didn't come off - 60knt on the nose out of dusky sound etc - well worth the read it was an ad
  5. Sure will be @ SANZ ! Need to find some more down wind sails to blow out though! Ill keep an eye out for ya - randomly ran into the original owners daughter over summer and learnt that the boat was originally built by her dad and the boat builder with offshore plans - they were nutters back then - so my dream of the figure eight is back on the table
  6. Don’t go getting ideas shimmer……you got enough on thread drifting….. Hey spotted you out a barrier over Xmas and was going to pop buy but by the time I got sorted you’d slipped away. Next time pretty keen to catch up on picking your thoughts on Cat1/2 safety - wanting to work towards doing a figure eight circle of NZ including Stewart island in the next few years.
  7. Let me know Josh and I’ll grab it for ya. BP if he doesn’t want it it’s yours - merry Xmas
  8. I have a gyro on Daydream from the previous autopilot if you want to try that josh let me know . Just got to pull it off - 10min job was running at ST60 Autopilot
  9. Hey baz I thought about your polarity theory and tried it in the cockpit . Difference is massive when you reverse polarity on one speaker! I knew it didn’t sound right just never considered the cancellation issue! got over the struggling car speakers in the saloon and stumped up for a nice pair of Kef outdoor box speakers for the saloon—- plug and play, totally sealed and water proof so will be very happy in the saloon. They are a bit big but we are definitely ready to party now. look out for a loud townson this summer - half volume and you’ve gotta get out of the cabin hahaha poi
  10. Tranz diesel Silverdale just tell him it’s a 2030 out of a digger not a marine install….I think this is the same as mine so it is a Perkins generic motor and they are really helpful worth a call anyway
  11. Randomly I discovered I need exactly those hoses on Saturday to solve a little fridge issue ill take them. Wham and where do I pick up thanks reece
  12. 8inch fusions in the cockpit hooked up to a class d 4channel that also covers 6.5in components in the saloon. 8in sub up forward think that is getting like 700w . went well for a while ….. now blowing sh*t up going to swap the saloon for 6x9 should sort it doesn’t suck that much juice either 2.8amp when pushed- on a sunny day the solar pays for it
  13. we have a MH rig and tbh I love the configuration- we sail to where we are going and once we get there the massive boom tent goes up and the main doesn’t go up until home time -We seem to be able to do hull speed on just the Genoa easily- super balanced and heaps of drive. Added bonus is we don’t have to remove the boom tent for most all of the summer cruise and sails up and down is the pull of a string! Mint! im sure not all mh yachts are so happy on headsails only but the townson doesn’t seem to care wouldnt want MH if I was not furling- it’s a big sail then is uncontrollable on de
  14. The Excell in my experience over the last few years is super reliable and seriously easy setting. sets every time in anything! Not sure of the size I have on my 34ft sail boat but have had 3 launchers hanging off me in 20knots and my only concern was the load on my bollard - seriously impressed Something to be said for having really good gear holding you in place - makes the family cruise less stressful when your wanting to bugger off on long walks. Park up on lee shore to get supplies etc Wind shifts are never an issue do it
  15. I just want to go race If there is no provision to officially reschedule in the NOR then close the official series at 2 and run the 50 and associated social gathering etc when we can go yachting maybe an impossible idea but I’m sure that first and foremost we all just want to go racing around having a good time mind you I have a long list of to do items after the last one and the boat is currently stuck high and dry at gulf harbour haul out
