  1. Sarca Excellent gets my tick of approval and by far easier to break out when retrieving than the Rocna style.
  2. Give Sam a call 027 447 5017.
  3. To easy try turning a carbon spar into a wooden one.
  4. Sounding a bit like Thatcher and Muldoon there boys. Sports and politics do mix and 40 years ago change came to apartheid South Africa with international sports playing a pivotal part in that said change Nelson Mandela was forever grateful for the efforts of those who saw human rights abuses and stood against their own governments positions to lend a shoulder in help to progress change. It’s not all about the loot it maybe for Lord Dalton but he is no longer representing NZ just my pennies worth.
  5. Considering The PT11 complete kit including rig rudder centreboard etc is $7500 Kiwi Roubles plus shipping plus build sourcing a nicer rig for the Journeyman locally could be a coin saver. I’ll send them an enquiry and see if they would consider selling a cnc cut file into the home of the Cup but not for to much longer.
  6. America's Cup: Team New Zealand 'cease all correspondence' with Mark Dunphy https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=12473881
  7. Similar not same. https://www.journeymandinghy.com/home/
  8. Kits hull only $5000 Nz plus shipping plus build hours makes for a expensive 11ft dink. Russel B would not see much of return on releasing a cnc cut file with the risk of plagiarism etc.

  11. Two down thousands to go…… unfortunately.
  12. Totally beyond me as to why Dalton & Co would feed from the hand of the regime that murdered this guy with impunity.

  14. Au contraire Armchair. TNZ chose to turn down the Council/Government $100m offer with a like and kind content Mark Dunfay kinda put another $80m on the table now with all the potential hosts running for the hills apart from the Evil Empire Dalton looks increasingly more of a greedy fool than a tall poppy. Personally I would much rather see the loot and resources poured into combating the appalling world leading youth suicide rate that we have here in what used to be the home of the Cup.
  15. Looking like Cork is backing away as a venue for AC37 that just leaves the Evil Empire. Crikey TNZ may have to pay somebody to host the event… Hope RG kept Dunfays number.
  16. Download the Kindle app to your tablet. https://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=16571048011
  17. Dr David Lewis along with his second wife Fiona and two daughters were the first people to circumnavigate the globe in a multihull aboard the catamaran Rehu Moana.
  18. True IT and where’s the evidence that twin rudders are a structural risk as well.
  19. Another bit of spin really with no names. Sounds to me like Mark Dunphy is Fays drummer boy. https://emirates-team-new-zealand.americascup.com/en/news/530_STATEMENT-FROM-A-GROUP-OF-LONG-TERM-TEAM-MEMBERS-OF-ETNZ.html
  20. Did bicycles too… Maybe worlds first EEEEEEEEEEEEEE bike.
  21. Talking of outboards….
