  1. I sold one for $1100 , matching your description, about 6 months ago . Now resides at Parua Bay in Whangarei, may be an idea to contact sailing club up there and see if it’s avail for purchase
  2. Wild Cat also sell these same fridge/freezers (Brass Monkey ) , I have two ( one for camping , one for GBE), very happy with them I know they were selling at Boat Shiw last weekend, but I got mine online
  3. Purchased a yacht 6 summers ago, with an Excel. They are amazing , I’ve never had a moment of worry about it setting and holding tight I’ve been converted to Excel , in fact when we changed yachts recently, it was one of the first things we bought, yes from CRA. great service and products.
  4. He was a nice guy young James we rallied cars at same time as his family, very sad loss in the Motorsport community
  5. Murray I had 276, at GBC . My recall says 289 was from Howick, Taylor’ family ?
  6. Thirteen years ago I bought a D28, with friends as partners, it was $32k from memory, Yanmar , full GRP, great boat, three trips to Bay of Islands, very safe, capable family boat , with very young kids on board We sold after 5 years use, got $25k I think. Replaced with 1020, which went from $70k to $52k after 5 years similar sailing use . So D28 dropped $7k over that time , 1020 dropped $18k same number of years . My advise, offer $17-19k, remember it’s easy to go “up” , but can’t go down so simply, Money talks, Cash SHOUTS ! As a former D28 owner, I really rate them as saf
  7. You almost gave yourself a New Years bath , after a few (quite a few) wines ...hahaha

    Whoops!

    Yes, around 2-30pm, witnessed by a friends, Te Whatever tacked and then toppled over in a froth Of white water. Out near Motuhie Island. Spectacular and hopefully no one hurt. Righted again within a few minutes aided by chase boats , jib lowered slowly and towed away .. this was his account to me as he watched. No, it’s to April fools day ....
  12. 2. Molesworth is a gem indeed . Cycled Rainbow / Molesworth / Awatere / Taylor’s Pass / Blenheim Feb 2014. Fabulous few days on the MTB.
  13. I’m with you Bad Kitty and Scottie. Def not lonely. She’s a twit
  14. I have always owned in syndicates, (5 keel boats, 3 multis) for the last 30 years , and it suits my pocket well. Never been any issue with a) finding partners, b) keeping syndicate happy, c) changing boats . If I wasn't already involved in several yachts already, then I would have a crack at the R40. Different strokes suit different folks, and Syndicates have been awesome for my family and i
