  1. Watching the youtube coverage is way better than TVNZ. I like Peter Lester and the couple of others that know something, but the rest are just awful
  2. The biggest problem the "bureacracy" has to deal with is figuring out who is telling the truth. Because they can't trust everyone they therefore must trust no one. Obviously some people are inconvenienced, but that's life. By getting on crew NYS has used up some of his boring time in MIQ, so that's a positive.
  3. I have put an ad on trademe for an almost complete set of Sea Sprays. I won't split them sorry https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2817433567&ed=true
  4. It's interesting that on this site there is a lot of sympathy for cruisers from the islands. On SA I don't see much sympathy for them.
  5. The clunk also doesn't seem to affect the revs, so it must be something loose that is banging on a housing as it goes past maybe in the saildrive housing? Will be fascinating to know what it is
  6. nilodor.you can get it from the chemist
  7. My understanding is that there is a large waiting list for boats to get into Westhaven.
  8. I Don't agree with "A". Isn't there already a waiting list ?
  9. Das Boot is brilliant. There's also a TV series on netflix of it. Not as good as the movie but still pretty good. Con Thode said that Das Boot was the nearest he had ever seen to the real thing.
  10. I'm sure it was another yachty as they left a pair of sailing gloves behind. I agree Waikiore, the boat is definately minimalist in stuff worth stealing. On a brighter note I was contacted by an officer in the Maritime police unit so someone has stirred up some action! To be fair I don't expect the police to spend much time on it as there are plenty more important things out there.
  11. Date was sometime after last wednesday (not 100% sure) and before monday which is when I reported it. Pile # 469 (Iorangi). As I said earlier I have no problem with westhaven office staff, they were very helpful.
  12. The new buiding on College Hill
  13. I went to the marina office yesterday. They were very good. They said they could only release camera footage to the police, which they were happy to do. I went to the police to file a report. They couldn't be less interested. The lady behind the counter said they would take the details but would not be doing anything about it. She then put on her best patronising tone and said I should check the boat more often and take the electronics home. I can't say they impressed me much. Unfortunately my excess is reasonably high to keep the premium a bit less nasty, so no point claiming. First time in 3
  14. right on the end by the floating dock in westhaven
  15. Hi You might like to be aware that there is a thief around on the piles. My boat was broken into and the GPS and Autohelm was stolen within the last few days. Be wary ! Was very kind of the b#$#@^& to leave a set of sailing gloves.
