  1. Sound track will give you a headache. Imoca style foils would maybe betterer.
  2. Can’t see any evidence of the rig posing a risk to life or limb the damage to the upper portion appears later and may well be the result of contact with the ship.
  3. Never tire of this clip RIP Banque Populaire.
  4. 1968 according to the author Townson 32. What design is Flying Cloud. Swing keel?
  5. https://www.facebook.com/groups/642607519153649/permalink/6497204597027216/?mibextid=rS40aB7S9Ucbxw6v
  6. Been a while not much progress on the Morby. The kitchen has turned biblical along with the garden so all I have managed is the extension to the skeg and a centreboard socket. Did my first steam bend and it worked well. Well fix off brass strips remove then sand fill paint sand fill paint and then release from build jig. Got a trailer so that's another thing to tick off. Still raining.

    Te Rā

    The only remaining original Maori sail is coming home for a visit. https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/christchurch-life/300926005/te-r-a-voyage-through-time-and-culture
  9. Hmm, Mr Parker must be up there with Mr Hunt regarding a distinct lack of marbles. Hunt had his dibs on NZL20 and was responsible for its initial demise if you encounter this buffoon give him a very wide berth.
  10. History repeating itself with Panuku/ Council preference for cash rental return over BEU income. Whilst lobbying Council to purchase Westhaven many moons ago it was apparent from the get go they simply couldn’t do the maths even when we laid it out in plain English. My question to those that support BEU’s is who sets the berth value.
  11. Can’t get the TM link to paste.
  12. I believe it’s a Davidson aluminium everything.

    Rudder too…
  14. Did she mean she has been listening to the Akaranas plans and vision for the hardstand.
  15. Not the America's Cup but the "Dung Cup". https://zeilvracht.nl/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Classic_Boat_Dutch_Barge_Race.pdf
  16. Not good ferry skipper in critical condition hit by a Boston Whaler ferry sank later at the wharf.
  17. Life is a journey not a race more so whilst seeking to purchase the right sail boat….
  18. Not much yachts in evidence too….
  19. Did David Richwhite cut up his RNZYS membership card in solidarity with Michael Fay?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.”
