  1. Failed attempt to go outside the environment.
  2. DP I have not raced the Coastal for many years, last race on a young 88, was great fun, so I have no money at risk but I'd like to suggest that those that want to support the club and the 40th anniversary say they will accept a 50% refund with the balance going to cover costs incurred for this year's race, any funds left over to go toward the 40th anniversary race. I know it would be a huge task for you DP if it happens.
  3. On accuracy, just to think about: Do you know the accuracy of your: - charts - sensors / GPS - Is your GPS antenna position accurate? Does it matter? The portable systems I'm currently looking after charts are 0.5m position and 0.2m depth, sensors are 0.5m or better. I doubt there are many recreational systems that have combined accuracy that those portable systems have, mind you cost per system is around the 10k mark, cost of the high density electronic charts was rather expensive, updating costs every 12 to 18months a chunk more.
  4. A large number of electronic charts for NZ are accurate to +/-20metres for position. Take a look here https://iho.int/en/new-guide-on-accuracy-of-depth-information-in-electronic-navigational-charts-encs Some can be +/- 500metres or worse.
  5. Just a few charts here
  6. Is the length defined as LoA, LWL, LPB, Register length, sparred length An example: 22ft boat could be 21ft LWL and have a sparred length of 30ft, an LoA of 23ft....
  7. Quite often foreign vessels are ordered out of NZ waters to clean their hulls. In some cases they get divers out to clean the hull of the fouling.
  8. What about instead of external storm shutters you had internal ones, a bit like deadlights, if designed properly for strength and ease of use they could serve a dual purpose, mind you no matter how well designed the boat and how good the crew are, there will be a point that the conditions will overcome them....
  9. Father in-law had a heart attack at home, mother-in-law caught him as he collapsed, then performed CPR and phoned for ambulance, 15minutes later firetruck arrived followed by an ambulance, fire fighters took over doing CPR, ambos got a defib on him then off to hospital, we were told very small chance of him coming through it without brain damage. 5years on his jokes are as bad as they ever were. His wife knowing and performing CPR saved his life.
  10. Hi folks, was not on that one, was on days off. Been awhile since visiting crew. A buoy was collected. Vessel in port Interesting what a bit of rope can do
  11. Tanks on shore full, tankers full at anchor waiting. So the cheap fuel hasn't arrived yet? Re horses Rehabilitated, horses do not need to be registered unless what you're using them for requires it,
  12. Thanks BP, Also working on one half the diameter.
  13. Making a ship's wheel for daughters school. To be part of a play ground.

    Based on info provided it is hard to make a definitive decision. In answer to your question, did A give enough time, I do not know. The rule say something like, when it becomes apparent to the stand on vessel, unfortunately different people have different limits. Did B, make a significant alteration to show clearly B was giving way. Honestly at first glance it looks like A is hunting B down. Rereading the text A is mentioned first as doing an action. If the OP could clarify a the points raised opinions may change, either way, one boat is damaged and as you say we are all repeating th
