  1. Nice makita line up on display there!
  2. Hi Does anyone have the lowdown on the BOI for cruising over summer in regards to antifoul rules... Does the boat just need to be cleaned x amount of time before leaving Auckland? Or antifouled within x time?
  3. Classics... Yep they where designed liked that I believe. Guess it could be like motorbikes registered before 1978 don't require indicators... Last time I checked.
  4. Do mulitis have lifeline exemptions?
  5. Wonder what hours the imoca guys sleep for. Betcha it's not more than six hours.... Which must make them a danger.
  6. Good report then. What about negative bouyency? I understand the sailing brand names are designed to be neutral buoyancy for obvious reasons any idea?
  7. Had anyone tried kaiwaka gear in anger here?
  8. Paint ball gun
  9. Hi Does anyone know if kawau boating club is open over Easter? I looked at Facebook page but no info.... Easter egg hunt for kids been pretty good last two years.

    And with the coastgaurd app you can log trip reports.. And it works I've checked
  13. Do they see motorbikes the same way.... Insurance Wise? I wonder.... Been a while since I had a bike and rode.... Is the cost of insurance reletive to value more expensive than cars these days?
  14. What exactly is the reasons that tricycles are hard to insure does anyone know? There must be some factual knowledge out there on crew Seems pretty harsh to me.
  15. Avgas also burns slower than petrol... So ya big boom in ya boat would last longer.... I guess that means more bang for ya buck....

    Does anyone use an ammeter for observing charging amps from alternator? What do ya use?
  18. What if some have a tranducer offset at 2.8m and someone has one at 300mm.....that has got to be a recipe for disaster if it gets shared publicly. Sounds dodgy to me unless it is kept to your own boat and device.
  19. Nope... It died last night around 12pm. Really pleasent here light breeze nw... Water flat
  20. Ha that was us leaving when you where there..... Bugger about the water and fuel eh.
