    I have a Lotus 10.6 for sale that would fit your budget.
  2. Thanks for the replies, all helpful. With the tack line attached to the bow roller and winched all the way down we seem to be able to sail to 60 degrees apparent wind. Should we be able to tweek this further? Would having it recut to have a shorter luff so it could be tightened further help?
  3. I have hesitated before posting this as some may find this to be the stupidist question ever. But. I have a South Pacific 42 and it came with a gennaker which I have never used before. When using it the pulpit at the bow is in the way of the bottom tack line. Is it a sensible idea to attach the spinnaker pole to the bow in order to get the bottom corner clear of the pulpit?

    Prop talk

    Wrong way round. You engage reverse gear (low revs) then kinda slam it into forward gear. This engages the overdrive. There are some good utube videos of how it works. My understanding is that it gives you essentially a different pitch to your prop. We have one and basically seems to give more bite in the water for less revs. Great for manouvering around the marina.
  5. I wonder if our resident ynz evangelist could tell us all how much help, if any , ynz gave here? Seems to me something they should be supporting but of course no fancy office or money in it for them i guess.
  6. Lol gurge dont ever name the ynz person who was helpful. Ynz will sack them as soon as they find out who it was.
  7. Credit to the Westhaven team at least they seem to care, unlike some others.
  8. One of the Gulf Harbour rocks is in the fairway that leads to the travel lifts. But management dont seem to care. You would have thought that the management would at least want the area with the most boat traffic to be safe. I wonder if it was something that affected their buddies in the drystacks that something would be done real quick to fix it.
  9. What ipad weather apps do you people recommend ? I want to be able to look at the weather map not just the forecast.
