  1. I'll chuck a meter across them and if a I see ??? they are all yours. They do look in OK nic, I did dry it out fast so they should be OK I think. But what should ??? be?
  2. It's how people are interpreting the words 'floorboard' and 'headboard'. It would be the same in AC boats as it would be for the Endeavour no matter the class rules. The class rules do not define either word.
  3. Agree, if the intent was that important it would be called 'the rules'. The headboard argument is trending fast towards what Tamure said, no hard panel so no headboard. While there are ?? about the square tops most think the same, they are just moving with the times and most are OK with that...but one or two aren't. The way the rules are written is a little ambiguous so I see some tidy up there, one way or another. The floorboards is a goodie though as can be seen by the comments here, some see an extended hull, some see floorboards. The boat is not self draining. The boat considerin
  4. OK maybe I need to explain it a bit deeper. The class rules state boats must have 'floorboards'. But one boat has poured foam in-between the ribs and stringers then sanded it flat to the top of the ribs/stringers and put a lay of fibreglass on top. The boat argues that the skin of fibreglass constitutes the boats 'floorboards' so they comply with the rules. The majority of the fleet disagrees with that and say the boat does not have floorboards. One other boat is about to remove it's entire cockpit floor and in doing so make the boat a lot more workable (a sh*t load more space t
  5. I had a battery tool that went for a swim with me, a marina fender fitting goes bad, and it went well for a week or so then died. It came as no surprise. But luckily the car fob in my pocket survived, I was down to my last one due to previous unexpected deep contacts with the wet parts of marinas. I pulled it apart just out of interest and for those who have ever wondered this is what's inside. A shed load more lectronics than expected. No idea what they all do but I suspect a lot are there to stop the users blowing their own arses off. But I also five batterie
  6. Can 'floorboards' be permanently fixed in place? Would you consider a skin of fibreglass over foam as 'floorboards'?
  7. When someone says to you 'boat floorboards' do you see a item that is fixed permanently or a item that is removable, maybe after undoing some mechanical fastenings? When someone asks 'what is the headboard of a sail?' how would you describe to someone what to look for on that sail. This is mainsail specific. There is a wee discussion going on around the definitions of the words 'headboard' and 'floorboards'. There is quite a range of opinions on both. What is yours?
  8. 100% correct but sadly the Akl Shitty Council has a very VERY solid track record of making the call they want then seeking 'consultation' in only places, manners and wordings that will come back saying those that responded want exactly what the council has already decided to do. The list of things they have done based on seriously dodgy feedback and support is far larger than the list of things the public do actually support them on.
  9. That's because it's part of the exempt fleet who are allowed too at specific times or situations. Also it's berth is only just around the corner from it's berth is the high speed lane which opens to no restriction waters so it's 'Sub 12kt' zone is only a few 100m at best, most of which is inside the Ports restricted area.
  10. I had no opinion of the organisation until earlier today. Needless to say we are starting off on a very bad foot.
  11. The NZSFC/Legacy commonly wank on about commercial fishing doing this and that. The make big calls along the lines of 'commercial wankers', even though what commercial is doing is legal, rightly or wrongly. So I don't give a f*ck about size limits as it's blatantly obvious that fish is a baby so if the NZSFC/Legacy support murdering baby fish how does that make them any different than the commercials they wank on about so much? It doesn't!! In fact it makes the NZSFC/Legasea no different to the priest who preaches kindness, control and respect for others then bangs a choir boy up the bum.
  12. What retard kills a baby undersized fish like that then brags about it on Fecesbook. Where is Legasea and all the outrage????
  13. Ah ha, that explains why I was seeing sporties heading up SH1 on Sunday. 99% sure one was you 44, there can't be that many speeders that colour up north. We crossed paths around Ta Hana.
  14. I'd say 'pretty full' batteries and a sunny day easily explains why you are seeing 0.9a, it's just topping up the nearly full batteries.
  15. Definitely listen to that. Pins both sides are fine and common but you don't want a sloppy fit.
