    Fiddly Repair

    I'd like some wise words on how best to fix this. Its the slot the washboards drop into. Inevitably the washboard goes in less than square and puts pressure on this very thin section, causing the crack as shown.
  2. Hi @gisywaterboy, how did you get on with this repainting of your cockpit? Did you go with the YRA600 in the end?
  3. Anybody have any recommendations for a mobile painter? Auckland Area (Panmure) Cheers
  4. Yeap, slow going, but progress is progress! It's a great yard.
  5. I've just binned one, have ordered a DST810 for replacement, hopefully these last longer.. I too am pretty disappointed but there isn't a lot of choice in the market for similar transducers.
  6. Need to borrow one of these asap to get an accurate measurement for my rudder bearing. Any ideas?
  7. The bootlace one? https://www.ideal.co.nz/nzi/Category/Tools-Instruments/Hand-Press-Cut/HNKE10-Bootlace-Crimp-Tool-Dieless-75-10mm/p/CABHNKE10 thats about $112. They had some one sale for around $80 the other day. $350 is way, way too much
  8. Removing toe tails does not look like a fun job Sprayed the elite or roll & tip?
  9. Beautiful @Sabre. Can you share some details on this? What paint, what non-skid, what prep did you do? Did you remove the tracks?
  10. They sell those at most electrical wholesalers , Ideal Electrical / JA Russels etc..
  11. Panmure is what you want. Im on the hard there now, if you have any questions.
  12. Here is one of my maxwell winches. Yours looks very very similar....
  13. if its Christchurch to Auckland id get in touch with mainfreight or toll 14m fits in a semitrailer which are allowed to be 14.5
  14. John Bennet at Sparloft has a trailer for this. Where are you taking it to/from?
  15. Thanks Sail Rock, good to know what sorta boat its good for. I'm not going to fit it to my boat.. , would you like a spare? make me an offer!
  16. Thanks KM & Fogg. I'll go with the nickel plated and the lashing
  17. What is the right crimp for the job? Copper or Nickel Plated Copper? Also, why are lifelines tensioned with the weird bit of lashing, rather than something like a turnbuckle / rigging screw? I assumed it was so you could cut it free? But the swages ends won't pass through a stanchion anyway so what does it gain you?
  18. Ok, update. Finally got around to polishing it up. Can now see a serial number, and a clear 15x11 marking. It has a marking which I think could read 'henley' ?
  19. I did this recently. Used the topping lift and an extra halyard to support the boom right above the pickup point. I just used the mainsheet to do the lifting. Lifted it, lowered it partially on the cockpit floor and slid the mainsheet pickup along the boom. Picked it up again, swung out over the lifelines and dropped it down to the finger. I have PM'd you some photos
  20. I bought a stainless one for my 3gmD from these guys : https://hdimarine.net/product/gm-stainless-steel-mixing-elbow/ Seems pretty good so far (5 years)
  21. is that haulout prices going up? or berth rates?

  23. thanks. yes found 1 and 2 on the blades. will see what ive got to clean it up a bit
  24. 33ft 20hp. Can arrange a look after lockdown sure
  25. I don't know much about props. This came with the boat, has been in storage ever since. not sure why it was removed ( fixed 3 bladed unit installed ) Appears to be a Gori? Cant see any markings on it other than "1" and "2" No idea how to identify pitch or model or whatever. What is it worth to someone? Cheers
