  1. Yes BP--that happened to us once when a squall came in while in Te Kouma---didnt lose the key but fumbled a bit ---now put the wheel back if any sign of weather but with the 2 of us its not an issue leaving it there --I would say that often the cockpit is to hot for sun bathing and thats why we have an awning up .
  2. I overcame that concern about cockpit size by regularly removing the wheel when we had more than the 2 of us on board--regularly have 6-8 in the cockpit --6 easily , 8 a squeeze-- when we have the wheel off--easy access through the boat to the duckboard
  3. Last race of the Triple Series coming up on Saturday --finish at Issie Bay
  4. Hi--if still looking at 1220's get in touch with me at the end of September --away on holiday and then helping bring a boat back from Fiji ----considering my options . Andrew
  5. Hi--have a look at this recent listing which I have----its a hull fitting and plug which I got with my airmar transducer/multisensor--also a spare one .

    Hi everyone --can l pick your brains please--I have an issue with my AIS. It is a Nais 400 (B&G) and is linked to my B&G Chart plotter--It has worked extremely well , 2x RNI and multiple coastals/races around the harbour. The chart plotter is showing all contacts and providing readings as it should be , and its not on silent mode. What isnt happening is that other receivers aren't seeing me--I have checked this with friends who have AIS receivers and on marine traffic etc . When trying to isolate any thing that may affect signal receipt/transmission the appropriate lights c
  8. Anyone know anything about launch on the reef off ST Heliers—- looks high a dry a few hours ago

    B&G gear

    Hi--can anyone point me in the direction of someone experienced with B&G gear --I have B&G wind/depth, Zeus 7 chartplotter, NAIS-400 and NPLE splitter, and 2 triton displays---unfortunately the system is only working intermittently since the RNI and currently not displaying anything other than the chartplotter information (but not the AIS information )-----have tested the connections and power which is going through the whole backbone etc --data only seems to be being displayed intermittently Now its got beyond my capabilities so want to get an experienced person in to sort out

    Jon--I'm on a 12m berth at westhaven as is Zambezi (both 1220's )
  12. Entries close on the 1st July --make sure you're in to participate
  13. Interesting --it would be good to hear what Westhaven or other marina management have to say about this ---if these regulations are in fact not able to be overridden (or haven't been rewritten ) then the current interpretation about grey water/liveaboard/holding tanks are not correct. Does this mean that if you have an electrasan (or is it raritan), which nukes all physical waste and has a US FDA rating for discharge quality, fitted and used, there is no legitimate reason for a marina operator to decline a request to liveaboard (in a marina)on the basis of water discharges (Grey or black )
