    What are you insuring?  Is that keeler or trailer?

    Because I'd love me some $220 insurance on our $16k keeler!

    Thats trailered power boat(Ami) but my mate on a mooring for 35k pays $350 non racing through AMI,yet to recieve renewal notice so may double too.

    You must be joking? I assume he must have taken a massive dump that blocked and broke the poo pipe too?

    No not at all.Why would council want to proved space/stop shipping for a weekend and a few $$ in local coffers compared to what the AC brings in over a few months??

  3. Almost guarantee the Sail GP would of happened in Auckland if DALTON didnt give Auckland the big finger and bugger off to Spain

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

    That was a Boxfish Research ROV used in the Ocean Bounty Documentary, my son was the operator :-)

    Did he give any indication how long before they think tanks will burst?? Picking oil will preserve inside of tanks.

    PS, I won a bottle of Salt Away and been wondering what to do with it. I don't actually understand what chemical it is or how it works. How would that go pouring a bit down the loo every time I leave the boat?

    I've been told in no uncertain terms not to use it on the outboard for flushing. Apparently it's corrosive to aluminium and leaves a coating(?)

    Thats whats it for outboard flushing,there is an attachment that fits the hose and you pour it in. I personnally just use water. I do the taste test after 5 minutes and no issues

  8. 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?

    thought the water looked cleaner than normal. Certainly no visual or olfactory evidence of any issues. 

    Funy you say that. That was our thought last weekend last weekend down the bottom end.
