  4. Thank You for the info on a side note.Who knew you have to register to buy antifoul paint,just did it at burrnsco?
  5. Ok IT,where do we get the correct information from?have asked a couple suppliers and they are in the dark but general consenses is are current vhf will work on the available channels we are currently using.My set needs updating but if I need to change who has the new sets?If i do buy a new set will mean another new set in 2016/2017?
  6. yes can confirm that we need to do nothing to our vhf radios,as our frequencies remain the same.maybe a issue if going overseas though.
  7. designer grinders and a couple others + dean,maybe the backers need to ask grant to move aside?
  8. i am guessing here ,that for clubs holding races to ensure vessels have the right safety gear,not skipper just signing declaration,ood has absolute control whether to start a race or abandon?not just skippers responsibility as we know some skippers apply pressure to ood to hold a race,can see this leading to clubs to pay a higher acc levy worst still the ood saying all must have one reef in and a number 2 headsail and no use of kites in 20knots or more. The fun police stopping fun.

  11. When Dalton steps down or sacked is when I will support Etnz,so looking good for the Japan
  12. vhf on ch 16 till anchored,epibs etc if vessel is in close proximity whats wrong with a good old smoke flare?, vhf is line of sight only and relies on repeaters,should of kept the old ssb (fair was to many vessels)clogging it,so we were sold the vhf as new technology
  13. With all good intentions of getting all the niggly jobs out of the way,the sunshines good breeze and bingo lets go for a sail.always tomorrow to re run those cables that have been in the way for the last 12 months.
  14. having a bilge keeler in raglan with no haul out facilities,why not go the extra expense and apply coppercoat,then you only need to beach boat for wipe down,should get more than 5 yrs from coppercoat.(something i need to think about.)
  15. will investigate further,there is no rush
