  1. Scarey photo. Dont show Amlins……
  2. MS Amlin Insurance SE.
  3. Better use epoxy & heat to thin. Dab in with a brad. Heat gun sparingly to drive air out or use a mini syringe pushing to bottom withdrawing as you fill. Styrene <10% with Pe. sh*t filler tho compared to epoxy. Waxed styrene is to make PE sandable. stop air retarding top layer allowing it to cure. Styrene without wax is solvent/thinner only~Used to use it for thinning PE when surfboard fins were laminated on with rovings. NZ fibreglass has styrene monomer.
  4. a little more subtle. Specifically, individual interest groups participation in the setting of quota. The presets. Is the methodology going to be presented with scientific endorsement So then we can get perhaps get a results that their PR touts. All fluffy waffle and wait, and wait so as not to tread on anyones toes. The fishing industry both sport and commercial caused the current state so they should feel some pain. In the past Electronic catch & position reporting, cameras, more paperwork, digital (whoopee), if these aren't implemented and enforced with a clear target t
  5. It appears to me our esteemed govt are once again taking away rights that fundamentally they don't/shouldn't have mandate for. Object here if you agree. https://legasea.co.nz/action/campaigns/fisheries-amendment-bill-2022-submission/ Fast track: # No you don't support # Select all MPI are, imo, incompetent, and put commercial interest ahead of whats best for av. Kiwi & the health of our fishery/coastal waters. Some parts of the amendment have merit, but generally I don't think it is a step forward. Reducing quota's immediately is valid.
  6. Try Gordon, All Marine. Prop specialist. 027 542 6104 Kumeu. Top bloke. I was having other work done by him & he lent me his hydraulic job.
  7. Thanks, for clarification. I guess he was hoping i would see his poled out genny and be obliging. But leaving it that late meant I nearly had to luff to let him through. And hour later we got a karmic hit, 35knt for not being thoughtful.
  8. So, even if you are reasonably sure you are stand-on, make an early decision to not engage? Correction, their genny poled to strb.
  9. Coming back from barrier a week or so ago in a WNW'er, saw a sail approx 10Nm of s/beam. (the only sail btw, lonely out there in winter!). We were on a beam reach in about 20knt. With little to do I was trying to figure the CPA and gave up, figuring it would be some distance. We were on direct heading to Rangi lighthouse. Lo & behold, some considerable time later it became apparent the CPA could be zero. I could now see they were on starboard , as were we, them with a poled out genny to port, heading for Colville channel. OK, I figured we are both essentially on strb,
  10. That & owner or major shareholder of a Co harvesting a resource can hold a political party management position boggles the mind! This is contrary to the interest of the average nz’er, imo. I will stop there. New Zeamericana
  11. Metaphorically, obviously. With electronic aids, a bit of experience and lots of fuel anyone can still harvest over limit. Even without (bar fuel); just rape & pillage fishing mentality. My observation is unobjective, based on frequency of encounters with workups, dolphins, Orca, Kahawai, Brydes, etc from early 70's. The visual spectacle inshore is just not what it used to be. The cray "supermarkets" are gone or way harder to find. But you can still get cray. I agree with your multifaceted research approach, as harvest vs biomass levels are obviously not the only variables at play for a
  12. If the fishing industry has to fall over to restore the fishery over all species, so be it. It has been greedily exploited right back to the whaling/sealing days. Just come back from 5 day barrier trip. The gulf was a desert. Always an awesome experience, except for the pervading gloom of missing sealife. Missed the swell by a day , but went anyway. Skirted all the breaks at 3m contour, at speed. Least that was fun! Only boat we saw out East was a genesis (?) with a lone fisher, fishing all day. Holed up in Haro at night. Just wtf was he up to? Definitely a pastime
  13. I believe Matsutec HA 102 will connect to various plotters and can be had for around 3-400$. I have one and had it connected to NMEA0183 (video in port) of my Zeus2 and it worked fine. I had to upgrade firmware & enter my boat details & MMSI. Not difficult. I have the pinout. https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=SB_20220430015710&SearchText=Matsutec+HA+102&spm=a2g0o.home.1000002.0

  17. Correction-BNC so should go straight on the Garmin.
  18. If the top is not stand-alone, garmin have a passive. (TNC) for $90 . http://mrmarine.co.nz/catalog/product/463
  19. Detach all other devices from backbone except the Precision 9 & Zeus. Worked for me on a GH2183.
  20. Nope. Ferro they will not do comprehensive. “Third party only” All other they will do 3rd party only. What Barbara told me anyway. Less I’m losing my hard drive.
  21. Third party? https://www.marine-insurance.co.nz/
  22. My premium jumped 25% with Baileys plus another 25% if on mooring. So I jumped too & went with The marine shop for a drop in premium. Struck off dingy and outboard and had to get a survey tho. Gratifying to get a survey on my work. Seemed very competitive for comprehensive cover. Which brings me to a philosophical question: If your original launch was 1972 but a complete rebuild was done in the 2000’s with relaunch in 2015 , when was the build date? Is that a bit like if a tree falls in the forest…….bla bla
