  1. Another thought as to why no anchoring ban at the mercs.Would be the pull of the mercury bay game fishing club.And which island does Faye own or has he sold it?
  2. Give it another 5/10 yrs and I bet there will be at Kaikoura island. or port Fitzroy
  3. Now why doesnt MPI/Council or Iwi drop 2 hundred moorings in affected areas and charge a over night fee? $10 per night max 2 nights,then your friends could raft up.Hmm new years party in the making.
  4. best $500 i ever spent http://www.chatfieldmarine.com/shop/Driveline/Shaft+Seals/Blue+Water+Shaft+Seal+-+Standard+Model.html if you are sticking with hemp,need 3 pieces with joins turned from each other,,grease is your friend, I fitted a pressure grease tube to gland in a salthouse 26ft,never leaked

  11. When my friend launched his yacht ,1gm, the gland never dripped and thats a problem,needs to drip for lubrication.Not a stream but dripping every few seconds.1hr motor may get get 250ml?Shouldnt drip when stopped.. Maybe fit a dripless going forward if room?
  12. Love how they call them project vessels.Other words I brought it cheap with no idea on how fix so flick it off again. I know if one vessel that's going sink again soon in Panmure.Harbourmaster offered to remove/dispose of for $500.Nah I will fix it.Family members no it's just going to burden upon father's death . I suggested they just take the offer stuff your father.
  13. Close the Mercs too. Bugger it, just close the gulf and ban tidal currents/easterly winds. If they did something 5 yrs ago might of helped rather than sit on ones hands.

  20. Re watched the programme last night. They could smell oil in the air then spotted a small slick,using sonar and dropping a camera down. The camera on retrevil had thick black oil on part of the cable so maybe not to far from rupturing?
