  1. Crikey crew lighten up I was just being sardonic after reading yet another finely crafted piece of local journalism... Liz Alonzi doesn’t want to sell her 10-foot trimaran, but may have no choice. With the closure of the Okahu Bay Hardstand in Ōrākei, the next-closest location she can service her vessel is in Whangārei. “It’s either that or pay $1500 an hour to hire a crane, which I can’t do,” she said, explaining that other Auckland marinas were not equipped for trimarans.
  2. Crikey one would think Liz could wash her 10ft trimaran at home rather than pay $1500 for a crane. What a potpourri of territorial local authorities and private vested interest ship yard rats have crawled out of their nests to once again rob Auckland boaties of necessary access to reasonably priced hardstand facilities. If you are a members of the Akarana you should hang your heads in collective shame. A plague on all their houses I say.
  3. What a tosser Mellars couldn't give a flying fish for those who risked their lives to save his unappreciative hide. When approached by the Herald for comment on the rescue and the lengths authorities went to save him, Mellars said: “I don’t give a rat’s arse about the rescue, and I have nothing to say to you.”
  4. Could be an expensive 150mm when the marina nazis require you to move to a longer berth.
  5. All right what about a cockpit heater then.
  6. If you can get your hands on some Jet A1 aviation fuel it’s way cheaper and burns a whole bunch hotter. Better add one of these too….
  7. You will now need a toasty iron.
  8. Talking of loot @ 6.07...
  9. Sure give us a call Mangawhai Morby Manufacturers 0800 $$$ $$$
  10. Francois does a 10/10.5 Morbic.
  11. Thanks for that Frank. Progress has been stalled until I have successfully slain the one million Willows that ring the ranch crikey they are a curse of a tree that’s for sure. I am considering adding a small amount of depth to the skeg so it carries through to the false stem for extra bottom protection. Next step is to glass the sole and garboard then fit skeg and stem then sand fill prime sand fill prime…. May well add some graphite to last coat of epoxy as the photo shows.
  12. Can anyone expand on this.
  13. I became a wowser after my local in Poncenby started charging $13.00 for a beer. I don’t object to businesses making money I do however object to profiteering.
  14. Barn with the Morby was flooded but wet vac has seen off the worst this morning. Tide rose up to 20mm under front door threshold of main house but all good the thing I'm really pissed about is my Canna lillies are toast. Wife spent the nite at the Kaiwaka Hall and son had flooding road disintegrating beneath his car whilst coming from Auckland but arrived safe phew.
  15. Mangawhai 340mm in 4 hours.
  16. You don’t regularly encounter yachts exhibiting such ignorant and poor seamanship as one does with stinkpot operators must be the fumes…
  17. Day of miracles as the storm passed the sun shone and the Morby soaked up some rays. Plenty of post Gabrielle tasks to be done on the ranch but I couldn’t resist going on all fours to admire what I had just given birth to… one very stout girl.
  18. Yup, I’m off with Mr Stihl to clean up the ranch. Maybe now room for a marina down the back paddock.
  19. Not so sure there will be anything to salvage. She looks pretty junked up in the pic and maybe that is the reason the skipper pulled the plug and set off the beacon.
  20. Here on the ranch I can see the rooster tails from the retards jet skis fanging around the shallows of Mangawhai some one will get seriously injured at some stage and odds on it will be a innocent member of the public. The local nominated harbourmaster doesn’t even have a boat duh.
  21. Voluminous 32 footer.
  22. I have used Move It for many moons without any issues. Dilute apply leave safe and effective. From memory the active ingredient is the same for most of these type of products non caustic no bleach.
  23. Yup, was a bit cramped aboard and the crew were a pack of animals.
