  1. Would love to see the relevant parts of the standard if you're able to share them. It's a job that's overdue on my boat.
  2. Thisi is awesome! - thanks so much Ex elly.
  3. Have done several offshore passages in one. Great sea boat - very capable in snotty whether. Have been in sustained 50kn winds and felt safe. My memory is that it didn't point that well and made a fair bit of leeway.
  4. Hi folks - I'm a GBI virgin and was hoping to take my lotus 9.2 out there this xmas. Does only having fitzroy available for anchoring limit the experience in your opinion? Will there be enough space there to swing safely? Interested in your thoughts.
  5. Ok - I've dropped the hammer on one of those, Will report back on how good they are
  6. Cool - am doubting many will be open when I'm up there so if anyone has a unit to borrow I think that would be preferable.
  7. Sorry - Should have said. Am running cables for a windlass. 35mm sq cable.
  8. Does anyone at gulf harbour have a cable crimping tool they'd be willing to lend me for a day? Catch is that I'm in Welly and won't be at gulf harbour till around boxing day to a few days after NY or so. Any leads gratefully accepted.
  9. Sailbrokers used to have a shed full of them when I went there a year or two ago.
  10. Really keen to hear your experiences with this....
  11. As a matter of interest, how did you know this job was due? Loss of steerage? 😉
  12. Hi all, Thanks for the responses. it was definitely the colour that put me off thinking it was teak/mahogany etc. I think it does look like oak too - I might try and match that way or perhaps go with a mounting plate has other have said.
  13. Not too clued up on timber types but need to do some woodwork inside my 1983 Lotus 9.2. Any thoughts on what I'm dealing with? Looks like oak to me but not sure that's very commonly used.
