  2. Winder how long club yards like devonport/panmure or up the Clevedon river are looked at?
  3. never run a 2s dry of fuel as oil residue is required to stop rusting etc,best to let fuel evaporate naturally. Got that from o/b mechanic as was having start issues. 2s dont like biofuel older 2s need to run on 95 or better. Incidently bio fuel is coming to a end in NZ due to cost of shipping Z closed its bio fuel plant in Wiri about 2 yrs ago. Gull will be stopping 698 bio as will use caltex 95 or better I believe.

  9. As much as a pain it is.Being up a river,clevedon/tamiki. Use to take sails off if we knew wernt using the yacht for a month or so.We got a lot of black from the panmure bridge, tyre rubber??
