    Next Cup

    If American Magic wins... “We are going to put the boat back into the water,” he says. “It will be somewhere between 80 and 100 feet in length. It will be a displacement monohull that is good for traditional match racing. You need to be able to see the boats from a distance, and the boats need to be majestic.” https://www.sailingworld.com/story/racing/next-chapter-for-the-americas-cup/
  2. Wow. That was pure idle speculation on my part. What a shame.

  5. Arrived back in NZ last week and joined the Coastguard this morning. The website recommends installing their app. Seems like a good idea, but can't find it in the google store. I checked the google store website and see this: "This app is incompatible with all of your devices" - specifically a fairly old Samsung S5 and a very recently purchased Moto G7. Huh?? What gives?

  10. Given the price and Wheels' report, I think I'm happy to take my chances with Ocean Inflatables... http://www.inflatableboatsnz.co.nz/models/
  11. Hey Wheels, 3+ years later, what's your long term verdict? Has it held up? They're still in business and prices look good. I'm gonna need to make a purchase in the next few weeks so sussing options. Also, anyone know this crowd in ChCh... https://www.facebook.com/aboutinflatables/ The link to their website doesn't work so can't really get much info, but they got a plug recently from a blog I follow...https://twoatsea.com/meet-gozzilla/
