    Thats what I was thinking.If tube there,knock extension off and build a rudder,Not hard just time consuming and hardstand fees costing .

    That is how your rudder should be hung.
  5. Looking at your Photos.I would suggest she is a home finished Cav26,none standard cabin top or lay out. Had 2 of them. Great boats but a set of new sails makes a world of diference.Had bags which looked ok.New set totally different yacht.
  6. Fleet numbers down and it seems (from F/B0 they spend time at Kawau Is. Did a season a few yrs ago as forward hand on Marquita. Only helmed one once,buggered if I could get it to go to windward.
  7. Emmies have Logan memorial on I think.18th??
  8. If you havent already got a dripless shaft seal,now would be a good time to fit one.
  9. What are doing to the motor??rebuilding it.Thought you had just blown the exhaust??
  10. Do you know what is going to happen to the sewage that will pumped from holding tanks?? The answer is there will be non leak tanks buried on the bottom.No idea what happens when tanks full. Do not think that is very enviromentally friendly. Is the marina going to put in its own fresh water supply system?? As they closed the public toilets over summer due to in sufficient water. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/124664510/court-to-campout-fouryear-fight-to-stop-waiheke-marina-culminates-in-occupation One of the sticking points for whānau whānui of Waiheke’s Piritahi Marae, w
  11. So you have no issue with a marina in our playground,No problem. We can al have opinions too.
  12. And that is somthing that concerns me.Give cruising another 10/15 yrs and will be told where and where you cant anchor.Which bay you can use which bay you cant. Hope I am wrong but with the boating explosion its only a matter of time before you will need a boat WOF and some form of licence to operate a vessel.
  13. There will be dredging of some sort and piles driven in,maybe a floating marina but what do think is going to hold it place,piles,walkway held with piles.I do not see a problem with it going ahead or not but I can see Maori objecting to it now the Government may back the Rahui. Cannot help but feel there will be a treaty clam/pay out somewhere during or before construction. Where will marina development end??Bon accord harbour,why not??Port Fitzroy?? Clevdon river?? Coromandel harbour has been ruled out so lets put one in at Te Kouma? It will end up no anchoring and an inspector arri
  14. In this current climate if a Rahui around Waiheke Island .I feel it would be best to put on hold for next 3yrs.Once they start digging/piling etc silt and maybe heavy metals will smother beds that they are trying save.
  15. Not sure but only ones who stock/make the impeller $75
  16. My yanmar had a fynspray pump,so got spare impeller etc from these guys. https://www.whitestarproducts.co.nz they are also cleveco/murray etc have the paterns for stuff no longer buy.

  19. Bugger just checked my phone it contains Cobalt from the Congo.
  20. Spokes person was on zb Yesterday talking about EVs and basically Toyota will not fully commit to EV until child labour stops in the cobalt mines. Given that more than half the world's cobalt comes from the DRC, that one fifth of it is extracted by artisanal (or informal) miners, and that around 40,000 children work in southern DRC where the cobalt is mined, there's a chance that our phones contain child labour.
  21. No yours is still on the line.It was a verbal comment and easily denied.
  22. Last price I heard for a 1gm10 to unblock guvnor/pump $1300.Buy a lot of biocide for that.
  23. Who really has their VHF on ch16 and if on volume down,so not much use,cell phone totally useless unless its the old nokia push button,smart phones have enough isues with dry hands unlocking it. Flares work for me,maybe a red stobe light??that should seek attention.
  24. I talking about belt driven freezer off motor.I should of been clearer.
