  1. If memory serves me correctly Ngataringa A4 suffered extensive damage whilst on a mooring as the result of a collision are you capable of paying for the cost of such repairs if your 70s classic unfortunately slips it’s mooring and damages another craft maybe some insurance would be prudent.
  2. Talking of Andrew Fagan and Swirly World does anybody have any news about his Pitcairn rescue after rudder failure.
  3. Tony Gibson the former CEO of this publicly owned facility should immediately hand back his severance payment of $1.8m. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/65m-write-off-port-of-auckland-dumps-container-terminal-automation-project/YPWYDI5G5RTRHMJWK2ZBR564WI/
  4. Fullers CEO on RNZ today suggesting that this is their preferred model with the public providing the vessels etc and them not having to upgrade the aging ferry fleet just becoming operators of the services. The one thing that surprised me is the 20% contribution to air pollution the ferries make in Auckland considering the bus fleet appears to be running on coal.
  5. Who is actually going to operate these publicly funded ferries my guess Fullers at a profit making peppercorn lease with no release of the deal struck due to commercial sensitivity.
  6. Yup a bit like who owns the sand “he who has access to supreme legal weight and the ability to take”.
  7. Try buying Gib Board what a clusterfuck with Wistones holding 94% of the national market.
  8. With a pillock of a owner.
  9. The whole install reflects neglect and obviously needs some love and attention it's all fairly basic stuff . A marine diesel needs clean fuel fresh air and good oil along with a clean heat exchanger plain and simple stuff really that could well save your bacon on a dark narly nite. Whilst you are at it drain the fuel tank and change the belts.
  10. Ran all our boats for decades on kerosene appliances Tilley lamps Tilly heaters Tilley iron Optimus cooker never had any safety issues nor incidents but crikey it’s not cheap to buy so used Avgas or Jetfuel.
  11. This guy John Street deserves a much belated knighthood for services to protecting and preserving heritage yachting.
  12. $728.50 per month for a marina berth directly impacts on the value of Young 88 like most craft.
  13. Sarca Excellent gets my tick of approval and by far easier to break out when retrieving than the Rocna style.
  14. Give Sam a call 027 447 5017.
  15. To easy try turning a carbon spar into a wooden one.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. Similar not same. https://www.journeymandinghy.com/home/
  20. 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.
