    I have decided to sell the Iorangi after 25 years. Here is the Trademe listing https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/listing/4338677600

    Plenty of them here who don't go on Kiwibiker. For some reason Sailing and Bikes seems a symbiotic relationship.

    For the Bikies out there !
  6. You might also find it cheaper to replace it. There is a shop on trademe that sells chinese copies.Last one I bought was $299. I'm sure they aren't as good as the original (over $1000). I've had one for several years with no problems
  7. They actually go quite well considering they're basically a steel box with a pointy end. There's plenty of videos of them tipping over. With the water so shallow they just lie on their sides. I doubt they would be much good on the bash home from the bottom end on a breezy sunday !!

  8. Hi Dutyfree. Sorry I don't know how to DM you !
  9. Hi Just to resurrect this thread. Does anyone know of options for cleaning boats in westhaven. I'm on the piles which makes it more awkward. Obviously I know about the FD
  10. The weather does seem a bit odd. Woke up this morning. Raining but not heavy, no wind. Hmmm, that cyclone was a fizzer !! Looked on Coastguard nowcasting. 80 knots peak at Mokes, 75 at whangaparaoa, 75 at Channel 5 at bean rock. It certainly seems to be significant in the open areas. Makes sense for the Govt to be cautious on this one. Better to be criticised for overreacting than not doing enough.
  11. Jeez ! On your Livewind feed there is a 12m swell off whangarei !
  12. Just to update this unfortunate thread. We were coming home from Izzy today. Off the Devonport yacht club we saw TWO big stinky's go roaring through the mooring area. They both took the sandspit post to port doing about 15 knots and then proceeded to go right through the middle of the moored boats before doing a hard left to avoid Devonport wharf. I've never seen anything like it. Couldn't read any names. Hopefully someone in the DYC saw it. On another similar note we were motoring up the Waiheke channel when a big Riviera came towards us at a rate of knots less than 50 m away. I get my c
  13. We parked in Whangaruru when the first or second one came through after New years. I wouldn't recommend it. The NE swell still managed to get around the corner making it a bit unpleasant. The usual hiding place up behind Motukauri island up the end didn't really work either. If it goes SE there's nowhere to hide in there. Manawaora bay in BOI has always worked for us as there are options if the wind changes.
  14. I have a Stormr Strykr jacket which I bought a few years ago. The idea is it uses 2mm neoprene with a fibrepile liner. The intention is that it is warm and also provides buoyancy. I think it's a great idea however the neoprene soaks up water which then leaks through. When I use it now I put a light raincoat on over it. https://stormrusa.com/product/new-strykr-jacket/
