  1. Hi all, does anyone have an old Raymarine Fluxgate Compass laying around or unwanted ?. I’m after the older model (I believe it’s a M81190 ?). cheers
  2. . One important point to note - if your cell phone has zero bars then a ‘normal’ cell phone call won’t work. If the modem has some bars, you can make a call via an internet app like messenger, what’s app, zoom etc. This modem enhances internet connectivity, it’s not a cell phone signal booster, that’s my understanding.
  3. https://wirelessnation.co.nz/lifestyle/ have a look at their website, essentially they provide a small receiver (modem) that has a better signal reception (more bars) than your phone and that allows for “more” coverage. your phone or laptop or iPad can connect to it and that means you get connected to the internet. We find that we can be anchored in some bays where the phone signal “bars” is zero or low, but the modem has a connection, so we can continue to be connected to the internet (read the news, email, make calls, etc).
  4. Try Wireless Nation, they sell a wifi router that seems to have a much better signal reception than a phone, plus all your devices can connect to it (chrome tv, vesper ais, tablets). They do a coastguard package deal. You have to pay for the router and the 12v adaptor, but we’ve been very happy with its reception, plus your phone battery lasts a lot longer.
  5. Hi, anyone got a couple of snatch blocks surplus ?, for use on a 12m yacht. Cheers
  6. Lol - I can confirm that it’s still going strong !
  7. Well, that might explain it and apologies for the kerfuffle if I’ve got the wrong impression !
  8. I saw only one barge and it had two diggers working on it and when I looked again about ten or 15 mins later there was a pile of sand in the middle of the barge. I watched it for half an hour or so altogether.
  9. Will do, it was a strong easterly on Sat. I usually see the self propelled barge on its way up to Pakiri on Sat/Sun afternoons in Tiri channel, if we are heading back to our marina. This barge was one I hadn’t seen before.
  10. Was anchored in North Cove and could see that a large barge with a couple of diggers onboard was working at removing sand from the Iris Shoal area near Kawau - does anyone know about this ?. It’s always been a good fishing spot and popular for scallops as well, but no more ?
