  1. And the Finn Gold Cup is still New Zealand's Cup. Well done Andy Maloney for his first World Championship. Well done Josh Junior for coming third.
  2. I agree - vendor pays for haulout and wash, buyer pays for the survey. My s&p agreement also included cost share if osmosis was found after purchase when the hull was stripped to bare. 6mths after purchase there was no osmosis found.
  3. Lovely work Sabre. Very sharp. Very tidy
  4. I use the Arctic sheets from the Warehouse bought a size bigger to get lots of tuck around the edges. If you know someone who is good at sewing, has a decent machine, you could buy some sheets and get them altered where needed.
  5. What a phenomenal race. Before that final shift what stood out for me was those great sailors on ETNZ able to make split second decisions and throw everything at LRPP including that big wheelie around that 2nd last mark.
  6. I agree get on with the yacht racing and send that British lot home next week.
  7. I loved the racing yesterday - at speed technology was it, when the breeze was patchy the ability to use those mark 1 eyeballs to find the best breeze came into play. All that fast, slow, stop, go unpredictability is great as far as I am concerned. I will watch it all.
  8. As Tamure said 5mm knap mohair rollers. I apply one coat horizontal, the other vertical, extra over leading edges. My boat is in a marina. I have been using TransOmarine 271, was happy with that and had about 500ml left at the end each time. Coverage I think is a combination of the rollers and the area to antifoul. My boat is a Mull 9.5.
  9. For my 9.5 mtr I too use hard antifoul and put it on with those tiny rollers unthinned. I get 2 full coats, 3 on leading edges and still have a little left over.
  10. My Northcote mooring was serviced 2 weeks ago. I had requested it at the beginning of June. It needed to be done by July. Auckland transport had sent me a notice late last year, a second and final notice in Feb this year. In August I received a notice of revocation of the mooring. I responded by email, received no response. The Harbourmaster now has a copy of the Mooring Inspection certificate. I use and recommend Stuart at Tidal Engineering.
  11. For the other little jobs shown you could try rust kill epoxy primer plus epoxy gloss enamel from your hardware store. They come in spray cans or for brushing.
  12. Nice! Enjoy your next lot of cruising.
  13. Sabre I think you nailed it! Some use predictwind also.
  14. That is Stunning! Thanks for sharing.
