  1. Thanks guys, just have to work out height and curve now ha ha. KM do you still have the old track off yours?
  2. Yes that would be my intention Booboo, I'm really just after upwind angles
  3. My 830 is missing it's jib track and car system, I have the brackets however. I am going to go with an overlapper for racing but seeing as how it came with two new self tacking jibs and I will be cruising a fair bit with small kids I thought it couldn't hurt to install the self tacking system in the refit. I don't however, want the lower leg remover type setup which attaches to the stanchions, and I'm not so sure they need to go that far out anyway seeing as the sheeting angles are so narrow. Can anyone shed some light on the maximum practical angle or distance from centreline that they ty
  4. All's supposed to be fair in love and war, however the same can't be said for Cedar core Ross boats ha ha. Two weekends effort
  5. It's a modified Ross 830 with a retractable bulb fin keel. Hoping to splash around Labor Weekend all things going well!
  6. After much stalling I finally got my hands on the new toy. Dad's Hiab truck and my bosses big alloy trailer from his Southern Fizz boat and a few willing hands and the process actually went pretty smoothly! She has been out of the water for 20 years, and is pretty much a new boat looking forward to a fresh start on life
  7. As title states, looking for a shed to get my latest relationship tester out of the weather. Something 10 metres deep by 5 or 6 metres wide would be ideal, the yacht has a retractable keel so it doesn't have to be especially high stud. Concrete floor would be great as the cradle is on castors, power a must. Need it for approx 4-8 weeks, would be sanding/priming/painting but care would be taken to mask walls, floor etc if required.

  8. Anyone got any history on this boat? I know it was originally in Taupo and has raced in Auckland, though not for some years.
  9. Piqued my interest. The SR26 we had is a distant memory but my boys are 3 and 5 now and I think it's time to go sailing again The 7.9's were always a solid little performer - Does anyone have any dirt on this little yacht? Pm if you wish
  10. Can't be a class rule KM - Animal Farm is Knot a class boat!
  11. Yeah, looking forward to a decent skid. Been a little while I'll come over to your Maorihoarder, but I don't think I'll be accepting any gifts from you Booboo... I am still relying on eyewitness accounts to peice together my movements on a certain Friday night before the SR nats a few years ago... Plus being a on a 930 means I'll have to be a bit more mature - not so much "Dirty Sanchez", more "Unwashed South American"
  12. I'm not surprised at all there Marshy! But if I was to take that off your hands I'd be depriving an SR26 somewhere of a chance to send it down the mine!
  13. Animal Farm doesn't actually have a Masthead Kite or Genny yet, so that declaration may have been a bit premature
