  1. I do, I can, don't know, yes probably, No I defiantly wouldn't call them that, they are welcome and I encourage them to do so...... and about there you lost me completely sorry.
  2. Oh I can tell you but I'm not sure if I should on Crew due to it's habit of assuming rather than reading. I am genuinely concerned it'll be slammed due to some muppets crap comprehension skills or bullshit assumptions as we see happen far far too often. What a sad thing to have to write but I suppose it's just a reflection of what happens when you let the righteous, the woke, the muppets scream rather than just tell them what they should be told being 'piss off and get a life'.
  3. The large representative organisation who asked me, and many others, for support I rate then very highly based just on their actions over many many years. For them to have concerns they must have good reasons and I have zero that gives me even the slightest thing to doubt their sincerity. For them to say this means they must be in receipt of more info than me and by the looks everyone here. I personally don't have anywhere enuff information to make a call either way.
  4. I found out why the organisation who alerted me wants to oppose the plan. It's not they don't like Dolphins it's they think the requirement/penalties are bullshit and unworkable. From a quick suss I'd have to agree. Fogg and family are happily sailing along on their trip and all of a sudden up roars a DOC fizz nasty. Of hops someone and hands Mr Fogg a fine for interfering with Dolphins. Mr Fogg is heard to utter 'WTF?, what Dolphins?'. DOC person shows photo of Dolphins with Fogg in the background, the 2 maybe within 400m of each other or maybe not, it is too hard to tell from the c
  5. https://www.beehive.govt.nz/release/consultation-opens-proposed-bay-islands-marine-mammal-sanctuary I've had a email in from an organisation asking for support to stop this. I'm struggling with why this organisation would want it stopped though. Note here I have not read the fine print and the devil will be in there for sure. Or is it just me who likes Dolphins?
  6. Yeap. Panuku still call the shots though.
  7. Yeap. But it's OK as boat owner are all rich white pricks so deserve to be screwed over, or so the Panuku mantra goes. The thing is Panuku wants to knock over Westhaven and it's users as they know it's the hardest one to do that too so once Westhaven et al fall the rest will go quicker than a tax man after your wallet.
  8. RTFA = read the f**king article or possible the tamer version being 'Read the flipping article' AFWIW = And for what it is worth WTF = While they fornicated
  9. 1st full coat of Vivid just went on. Looking not bad. Board looking 1000% better after some welding, bogging and a some poxy primer. Pressure washed the old Ultra, sanded it, put a coat of vivid around water line and high wear places. 3 full over that in differing colours and should be good for a sail on Wednesday......if I can get the board back in which maybe fun, the not fun fun. many many years back in one of Dads 'i must have a weird car' phases, he had a couple, he got mum a Skoda, the old one with the wheels they were always on funny angles. Looked like crap but get it on
  10. Surely they are and they did and it sure is. It's the promenade, been in for a few years now and going OK, thanks to a acro prop. The latest structure is the big expansion of the commercial sales berth which is illegal under the rules Westhaven is governed by. But the Council/Panuku just said 'We are above the law so it can get fucked' and did it anyway. One of many things that busts the laws down there they not only ignore they roger right up the chuffy. It's sad and disheartening to see the carnage the council is causing to Auckland heritage. Also not that fun being fucked over by
  11. It's highly recommended and it's just like anchor chain, more is better then less It's not a large lump of tupperware paying a K a week, they won't care. They want us gone from Westhaven and are actively working towards that end game.
  12. Oh gezz, aren't you just a bundle of joy, that sounds scary There's so much going on down there a and into seabed with 200 years of gawd knows what gone into it evil will be lurking in many corners. But as this is a new phenomenon we're picking all the tupperwares and that lectric stupidity will be involved somewhere. The timing is just to coincidental. Bitch to Westhaven and what will happen? A Jacinda, a nice mummy concerned smile while they increase the rates yet again.
  13. Before the last big contest I told my crew as the day was looking lite we needed to save every gram we could so spend the night being a bunch of whores. Not surprisingly they listened. I even got a txt from a WAG asking of I'd told her mate to shag her silly, I replied I sure did. She replied 'Thank you'
  14. How many Skodas did it take and did the dealer do you a deal? It must have been damn handy being able to drive that medium to the site considering you'd not get many in your boot
  15. Do you mean the promenade that cost $21 million dollars and has been held up since new by a $100 acro prop? Yes about 3m from it, about 10m from the acro prop .
  16. Even if it is a great way to reduce fire risks in these long hot dry days Oh and if you're in the state house behind us, mowing your lawns means you can find your 2 dozen odd chickens that are in there somewhere.
  17. Oh yes it sure is, that's what there is so much head scratching going on. No thru hulls. Yeap anywhere the water touched bare metal....fizzzzzzzz. Sort of like your photo but the metal is fizzed away. Other boats are sussing today and over the weekend so we may find out more in a day or 2. When I was giving her a bum wash for Mahurangi I did notice the concrete pontoons are eroded maybe 20-25mm and some reinforcing is visible. At the time I do remember thinking 'Crap, will I now glow in the dark. Hmm.. that's cleaner reinforcing that I would have expected'. At the time the
  18. That dude, formerly known as Ben Nathan but now travels under Maori name, that hammered the AC, literally, is sending emails to all the clubs and everywhere saying how proud he is he did it, how it highlights how the AC is at the core of White Supremacy, is responsible for harming Maori elders and why Maori have to live in bus stops. He's also promoting a TMe auction for the hammer...which pans out to be just a T Shirt, proceeds to some organisation with a long Maori name. A passionate man for sure but maybe not the best when it comes to thinking strategically.
  19. Correct. There is literally more electrical things contained and happening in your little finger than the boat. That's why everyone is scratching their heads while muttering WTF??? You guess accurately Grasshopper. Not even a watch as they are not allowed. Analogue maybe, digital definitely aren't. I must suss that, I tend to start like Ineos i.e a tad crappie Centerboard, was 10mm plate steel 6 months ago and for the last 15 years, is down to 1mm in places and is super duper shiny. It's fizzy shiny not dragged thru the mud shiny. On taking it back yesterday any place t
  20. You not reading properly again IT.
  21. It's maritime anarchy out there at the moment Covid has really fucked things up and in many ways
  22. Yeap. Huge changes and all have a very large electrical components. I'll get the metre down and around there. It's not the first marina I've had to suss for stray, found all the leaker's eating them so I'm quietly hopeful.
  23. The boat is 108 years old, she was perfectly fine in October, not a single thing has been changed on the boat since before then. There has never ever been any item of any form that connects her to Westhaven bar 3 mooring ropes and the water. The 3 mooring ropes are connected to fittings both ends that terminate in wood, it has not changed for at least a decade possibly closer to a century. But Westhaven HAS changed a LOT, all within metres of her, since Oct last year. To suggest the boat has very suddenly decided to change 107 of history at the exact same time the environment she liv
  24. Opps yes Akl Regatta V Akl/Tau. Too much going on at once, it's crazy.............. so much so it appears to be confusing some
