  1. From the NZTA website: 'Waka' means 'vessel' and 'kotahi' means 'one' so our Māori name conveys the concept of 'travelling together as one' and embraces integration, affordability, safety, responsiveness and sustainability. The Māori word "maha" means many/abundant, which surely would be a better choice! Or, does it infer the NZTA's view of embracing integration, affordability, safety, responsiveness, and sustainability has us all travelling in one vehicle? Is that one Nissan Leaf or many Nissan Leaves? It would take a long time for a single truck to do the 1000 return trips from Aucklan

    Wanted 1 x Y11

    Is 11.2m close? https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/listing/2723939650?bof=ufY4u30P
  4. Although probably not too accurate to headline it "New Zealand's largest yachting competition"When it comes to female competitors, there are 11 boats entered for the RNZYS Ladies Racing, and you'd see way more than 6 female sailors at pretty much any event.
  5. Fish - it is only 1.65M draft with the keel up! https://www.yachtingworld.com/boat-test/finot-conq-fc3-53-120154

    marine deals

    I purchased a VHF from them which died about a month later. They had no problem supplying a replacement but could not do the same model as I think they tend to get batches of things they are selling at a discounted rate.
  7. Hi Phil, according to Racetrack higher than the SR26's or Ross 930's, around the Young 11's/Elliot 1050's.

    Protest question

    If there was "serious damage" then there is leeway on the time for a protest flag to be flown & the other boat being notified, otherwise the rule is the protest/hail should be at the "first reasonable opportunity" which would be the time taken to unfurl the flag on the backstay not after going down to find it! . The protest committee is there to deal with rule issues rather than assign fault for insurance claims & if they felt there was no injury or serious damage & the flag/hail were not quick enough then the protest would have to be dismissed.

    Optimists in Antigua

    So far off the mark! No 20knots of wind, no 1.5-2m waves, it's a Laser not an Optimist, and for the same comment to be made would indicate either a partially completed, or botched, gender reassignment procedure! But HT, I agree with DrW, if you are not prepared to post similar comments with yourself/wife/daughter in the picture it's probably best left on your hard drive for your own amusement!
  10. Think it was just lobbed out there to distract people. A 250 vehicle barge would be way bigger than existing Waiheke car ferries which only go up the river as far as just past the marina or maybe 40% of the distance. Getting something larger around the doglegs in the channel which can be challenging for a Piedy at low tide would require a serious amount of dredging, especially given much of the area above the bridges is only 2-3m depth. Then they have the small problem of getting under the old Panmure bridge which at best would impose tide state conditions with its 7.7m of clearance. Or, would
  11. Sorry, forgotten what we were discussing.
  12. Rehab - Hard to think anyone has an inability to access a website these days, but anyway, if they have memory loss they will have forgotten about the dumping before they get around to worrying about it!

    This n that..

    Oil seems reasonably priced, less than the spices in the grinder!
  14. I had a cheap not-pure sinewave inverter & tried charging my laptop - the switched mode power supply in the laptop charger had an issue & self destructed.
