    Can't see why not as long as boat has entered before the 1 minute mark and is in the start area. But given where entry line is they would have to kill a lot of time first at 40 knots

    What are these?

    Na - Dog boxes for those that make a mistake
  7. I was lucky enough to spend 5 weeks around Stewart Island and Fiordland a few years ago and we hardly scratched the surface. This over Jan/Feb and we still took a weather pasting around the run run from Stewart Island up to Fiordland. To do that area justice needs 6 - 8 weeks down there - PLUS passage times.

  12. Cheers Wal - that would be a damn fine idea me thinks - better come up a day earlier to engage in this gentile gathering that could be scary as well I'll PM you closer to coming up to sort out. Party date is Sat 16 Oct so Fri 15th it'll probably be
