  1. BP. Try the YB App on Android. Seems to work well. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.yellowbrick.raceviewer&hl=en_NZ&gl=US
  2. I bought some lead ingots from these guys about 2-3 years ago.... https://www.dlm.co.nz/leadsheet.html I've got a 17.5 kg block of lead if you're interested. Clean and ready for melting into a secret project. Leftover from a previous project.
  3. We found Soft Shackles helped with timing the Genoa and Jib in. Always the same size, not like a bowline. So better as a reference for timing. Also, the bowline on the sheet needed to be very small otherwise it would touch or restrict the Jib car.
  4. I've found these instructions really helpful. https://l-36.com/soft_shackle_9.php Great little calculator to help with measurements and sizings. Added them to new Genoa / Jib Sheets. A small eye splice on the sheet means the soft shackle fits in tightly and stays there permanently. Agree with Carpe Diem. They take two hands, to attach and remove, which can be a drawback.
  5. A post from the Classic Yacht Association on Facebook this morning... https://www.facebook.com/ClassicYachtAssociation/
  6. Blue painted topsides, 2 pot AWLGRIP 2000. I've been using Grunt Klenashine to prepare. Very lightly, not to remove all of the blue goodness. Then polish with Grunt Supawax. Use a wool buffer with some success, otherwise resort to polishing off by hand. Local boat painter provided some guidance a few years back. It's always hard work, but super satisfying.
  7. I would imagine the Ronstan 50 would be fine on the Cav 32 mainsail reefing. It's a small main. MWL 500kg and BL of 1,500kg. If everything is lined up correctly and not twisted. Low friction rings would be ideal too. Make sure they're nice and big to accommodate the reefing lines etc... You just need to get familiar with soft shackles and loops.
  8. Fantail is perfect. I remember being passed by Fantail when I was a kid in a Round Waiheke Race. It looked perfect then and still looked immaculate in Bon Accord Harbour last summer. Some of the best proportioned yachts ever designed.
  9. We installed B&G Triton2 with Wireless Wind Transducer last year. Sourced from Neptunes Gear. It replaced broken and beyond repair Nexus system with wireless. I had already replaced the battery and bearingss. The B&G wireless had excellent range. The specs were better than Garmin. Also someone from Garmin's agent expressed concern about Auckland Sky Tower interfering with Garmin wireless transducers. B&G was confident about wireless performance. Installation was easy considering. Did spend over an hour at the top of the mast drilling and fitting the mounting pl

  11. I'm stoked with the B&G great provided by Matt at Neptunes Gear. Installed Triton2 Speed/Depth/Wind pack (Wireless) with additional Triton2 displays, and 9" Vulcan. Customisation and easy to read. All good.
  12. Not sure. Give them a call. If they don't, they'll provide some ideas on who can assist.
  13. Go to http://phrf.yachtingnz.org.nz/export-options Download measurements and look for a Lotus 950.... there is one with current measurements. "Wright One" Was just on another Lotus 950 a week ago (Visual Progress). NZ built and original rig. It also runs a Selden Rig.
