  1. Further up the river by the old Stevies yard 15knots was clocked on the speedo, big rooster tail coming off their rudders. Unfortunately a big piling barge dragged and struck their pole damaging it then impact into their hull leaving a big crack and marks all down one side before dissapearing off to stillwater where it struck some more boats before it was secured! Spent the morning rescuing 2 boats from broken piles... Mother nature can be bloody brutal!
  2. With the forecasted rain and wind it wasn't worth us staying out with young kids onboard! So we have just made the trip back from Te Kouma to Gulf Harbour in 3 hours 40 minutes, was pretty wild out there but thankfully we were going with the wind! Top speed of 14knots and average of almost 9knots, boat felt like a heavy tug boat as we were provisioned for another 10days on the water. We may head out again for a few days if this weather clears up!
  3. Have Been told there is a rubbish Barge but where is it located? Or where is the best place to dispose rubbish?
  4. Will be a sticky txv valve, went through this on Kick, spent way to much money on the system so ditched it all for 12V havnt had a problem since. Possibly wind the valve in and out a few times to free it up?
  5. This is what we built for Kick Elliott 1050. Since this one there have also been 2 more made for Sniper and Enigma 1. We cruise with anchor in place while flying zeros and A sails.
  6. As soon as an NZ boat is sold offshore GST has to be paid by new owner when returning.
  7. But there is no duty payable for an NZ built boat.
  8. Good luck trying that. Tried that exact thing and boat all but got chained to the customs dock until GST was paid. I tried pulling the wool over their eyes but think I wasn't the first to try that as they knew what questions to ask.
  9. Tracker should be part of your entry fee.
  10. Would be great to have boat names posted with their design as there is alot of new boats!
