  1. Can't move from speed ring to normal drum under load they are literally a one wrap on the speed ring for fast trimming. You also cannot use the self tailor from the speed ring.
  2. You need some serious experience to enter Parengarenga Harbour it's a narrow entrance with a very shallow bar. Any swell and it's a no go in a yacht.
  3. Can't get them haven't been able to for around 20 yrs if they are the alloy cast version plastic ones would be at least 15years since they were available. 43 was a real common size so you would be lucky to find anything out there.
  4. Sorry It's not what he's talking about he's talking about once the resin is mixed is the weight ratio of resin to glass so if you have one square meter of 200gram glass you should use around 200grams of resin. But if you are using chopstrand that ratio doubles the 1 to 1 ratio tends to only apply to woven and double bias clothes.
  5. Burnsco don't stock Baltic at all stores only some. Safety at Sea has stock as do other retailers around the country. There is new models arriving shortly before summer so keep an eye out for those.
  6. sorry Survitec they used to be RFD
  7. RFD are the Aquapro dealer but Southern Pacific have spares etc for them as they build them for Aquapro
  8. It is funny how trouble follows people from one yard to the next but it's never their problem.
  9. Yup they are still on special too don't know why you would waste time on a second hand one at that price and a new 5 yr warranty. I have a suzuki bloody love it.
  10. And said sailmaker is supplying sails to the class at his cost price so he is doing his bit to help grow the class. The sails that are on all the old boats are at least 22 to 25yrs old so upgrading them is needed to keep the boats going. Rigs and foils also need to update as most foils were wooden cored and absolutely rooted as are the old alloy rigs and the carbon ones on offer if you assembled it yourself your up for about 20% the cost of buying off a mast builder so all the right things are been done to keep costs down.Any old usable gear is handed to other guys for no cost to them to get b
  11. You need to use the proper 2:1 shackle for the bottom on the furler to negate Chafee. If you are at the end of a prod a 2:1 is by far the best option to stop trust.
  12. Obviously your one eyed view means you don't rely on these guys been let in for income and been able to pay a mortgage and feed your family. These guys provide income to allot of businesses which also you probably buy gear from as well for your boat but its these bigger boats that keep these businesses afloat so if they go tits up because these big boats cannot come in where will you get your gear from.
  13. We are really going to struggle in the Marine Industry this summer what Super yachts that are here and were supposed to stay here for the cup are now leaving as they can't get the owners in the country to use them so they are getting ready to leave now. This government is so narrow mind and fixated on one goal but not looking at how the country is actually going to make money to get them out of this fiscal hole.
  14. Super yachts haven't been given the go ahead that's also a massive issue they have to apply and insolate once arrived. The amount applying vs getting approved is very little.
  15. It doesn't matter with NX both the old and new masthead units work but either way you need to reprogrammed the wsi box. Like wise if you plugged a wireless wind into NX2 server the server had to be programmed to look for the wsi box.
