  1. I am pretty sure that it's still going to be "Coastguard" for the foreseeable, since no one it going to be saying "quick, call the Tautiaki's when they hit the rocks. It's a nice gesture, but it's just a marketing slogan in the same way the dolphins were plastered over everything in the 90's.

    Hang on are you saying that a privately owned sailing event catering to a special interest group has cost taxpayers millions 🧐.... again!
  4. You made the right call
  5. Iwi, first it's dolphin whispering, and now they are running fishing vessels into the noises, what next!!! I guess they havent read the ammendment which has been law since 2014 https://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/2014/0060/latest/DLM4794424.html
  6. One wonders how these things still occur with modern navigation systems https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/fishing-boat-run-aground-in-the-noises-hauraki-gulf/AZUXFTNDUVG7LPU4CD7H73YAYI/

    I doubt that many have bothered because its in the too hard basket, no one is going to heave to if some dolphins start playing in your bow wave! Ok, so totally unrelated 🤣
  10. anyone know what the north cape gate is for?
  11. The leaders are just getting to the lumpy stuff
  12. and anyone with a hollow SS shaft thats getting on i.e 30 plus years should get it x rayed, they were pretty popular on a lot of NZ built boats

  14. its not rocket science
  15. Just rebuilt 2 of them from the gm series, think it was $80 for 2 seals, 2 bearings, 2 gaskets and one impeller. You can rattle can them if you like but being bronze why bother? Remember to lap the faceplate flat with some wet and dry on a sheet of glass and you might need a type of bearing puller that levers the two bearing apart Its all pretty basic
