    Can you just mix up a half quantity? Mixed it all and heaps left over wasted. Does it keep for a year or two in the tin?
  3. Im in the market for a burner, but cant take a whole with an oven a nd all
  4. Built in the wee square plate, is the spring,then the carbon(?)thing, then contacts(I think,offhand) Hose is removed. This is the gizmo that goes click and auto ignites.
  5. Hi, any answer for me? The burner no go. That spring loaded thing just behind the front busted.Have stripped but dont see how can repair. So only one burner going.

    What I want to know, is will the organizer s make a profit?Would the AC go ahead if they knew the world would be locked down with covid when they began organizing it?
  13. Wish to install a Volvo shaft seal.But my stern gland is of the style of having 2studs to put pressure on the packing.(its not circular). So need a round gland style that would take a volvo seal. Where from please? Also, a packed sterngland supports the shaft, but the volvo wouldn't. Is this an issue?
  14. So, be registered with MNZ. (and no need for number carved in beam,) and get cat 1 from YNZ(no need to be on their register)and good to go.
  15. Am I confusing NZ Maritime with NZY.Can you go offshore with NZM, but dont need to be NZ Y registered?
  16. So does anybody know of any advantage of having a number? I can't think of any.
  17. My yacht came with the OT number carved in an overhead frame.I think it means you are listed with Lloyds of London (no idea why). I am not on the NZ register(meaning cant race with NZY,cant go overseas,no sail number,no sole rights to boat name) You can search the NZ register on line for your boat name/number. A fee for change of owner.
  18. Its ratepayers' money they are gambling with.Naval Point in need of a big makeover.They said a month ago they had $10mill to spend there.That wont go very far.
  19. Big financial gamble by the council.Lyttelton is a disgrace.
  20. A container? No mention of a rock.
  21. Loving it! What is the insignia on the Italians headsail? Looks like the old Woolboard trademark ( the 3 multi circles) Maybe the new sail material?
  22. Used to have kero.Not again.Can ask anyone to boil billy with gas,kero they need to serve an apprenticeship before operating.So, never again.
  23. Thanks for that OT, looks good, but in description it says max rpm 500 and think the Ryobi spins a bit quicker?
  24. Would love to see an updated list of Northland shops. Yes to Mangonui,Paihia,Russell, Opua,anymore?
