  1. I wonder what happened to that photo. That was about 15 years ago.

  4. I dontbknow how to emptyit . blackpantherschooner@gmail.com
  5. Covid permitting I was planning to check out next year using my German registry and sailing solo. Might be interesting. I have been saying for years that offshore cruising is in its death throes. But I am surprised how quickly it is happening.
  6. Or the Northland coast. We are hoping Covid 19 will have run its course by next year.
  7. Ive spent maybe 16 years with a Manson plough. No complaints. Id try one of the new ones if I ever lost it but that hasn't happened yet.

  18. We waited 3 years. I agree with good doctor go sailing.
  19. Two more idle thoughts. There is a Facebook group called NZ Liveaboards you might want to check out I always thought the Bolger AS29 would be a great liveaboard for a single person. 12 inch draught and masts that can be dropped in 30s means you could get the cheapest mooring in town.
