  1. Okay, I'm lost - who is STF? Who actually runs the hardstand? And even if he/she/they are doing a poor job - we still don't want to lose the hardstand do we?
  2. Hi all, got this in my email yesterday. Thought some of you might want to attend.
  3. Unclear from the article EXACTLY what they're doing as down towards the bottom it says:

    Stuck tiller?

    BP might have nailed it re the heat. I just freed a 12mm bow roller bolt that would not budge by using a heat gun on the threaded end for 2 minutes. Came apart easy after that. Yours may have either epoxy or thread lock goo in there - both will 'melt' with heat applied. Just be careful as the bolt will stay hot for a while :)
  5. Thanks ex Elly, just watch the videos. Awesome down to earth stuff.
  6. Hi Toltec, be up your way next week so we'll hopefully catch up. Searched for Sailing Monanaroa but no success - spelt correctly?

    Pier 21

    Pier 21 is for sale but as a marine business (as I understand from several articles I've read) - see link below: https://www.cbre.co.nz/about/media-center/large-central-city-waterfront-property-on-the-market Anybody know anything different? Tamaki Marine Park is useless for yachts unless you're happy to remove your mast before going under the bridge to get there.............
  8. Um, my whiting 29 had full headroom................even in the head.
  9. As the good Doctor says, that 6 extra feet is huge. It's not just 6 feet in length, there's (usually) a 2-3 feet extra in beam as well. And that 6 feet (as a mate of mine describes it) is all in the middle of the boat i.e. where you eat, sleep and dine. I had a Whiting 29 and in the berth next to me was a mint Beale 33. I couldn't get over how much bigger it was internally. And yes, I know they're different designs etc.
  10. And that fine is a frickin' joke. You can own a very expensive (or not expensive) boat/yacht/powerboat and create mayhem and the fines/justice is a joke. There are plenty of examples of this in NZ in the past. Fines of $200 are meaningless to boaties - you own a boat (in most instances) $200 is peanuts. No deterrent .
  11. I used Alibaba's method for years when I had a trailer sailer. Really easy to set up and adjust. Works well. However it can be a pain if wind/tide etc changes at 2am and you have to get up to adjust it or remove it altogether. And 'ditto' on the flopper stoppers - I could never get them to work really well plus they took up a lot of space on the trailer sailer. But maybe it was just my inexperience with them
  12. Awesome, thanks Gappy.
  13. Sorry Gappy, who/what is RFD?
  14. Hi all, we have an Aquapro inflatable with aluminium hull that came with our yacht. It needs a few parts - but I'm struggling to find anyone in Akl who is a dealer in Aquapro. Might be my inability with google search Anyone got any ideas please?
  15. Went to Westhaven friday arvo to check lines etc. 3 yachts (not launches) on our pier were loading up to head out for the weekend!! I asked one guy if he had checked the forecast......"yea, don't think it'll be much" was his reply.
