  1. Run across a couple of people in the past year who have done the "sail it home and make it the adventure of a lifetime" and have loved every minute of it. I would suspect the decision-making matrix gets a bit complex. Some of the non-financial (i.e. emotional) factors can go in there as pluses; on the other side, probably also pays to allow for: - viewing/inspection costs can get up there when the boat is in a different location - seems most people will have a shortlist of at least, say, four boats that are worth a look and obviously you don't want a budget shortfall on travel/accommod
  2. All these refits finished and it's still only early November I thought that was what Christmas Eve was for. Good effort Royale - hope the relaunch goes well.
  3. Glad you have been rewarded for all your efforts. And if it's any consolation, it looks like a job that took twice as much. Very enjoyable thread, I will miss it, what/who's next? Think Royale is overdue for a confession, seems to be lots of new items being quietly investigated...

  5. One day houses will be made like Lego and you will be able to pull off an entire room and slot in a nice new bright shiny module with everything ready to go.
  6. Did the bathroom of a house that had been formerly owned by an old couple using a similar method - hot air gun and wide scraper heated up on the stove element. Regretted it immensely when the heat hit the vinyl in the area surrounding the toilet. Can't blame old people too much I suppose, any toilet would probably be the same...
  7. Clearly no NZ firm could have come up with something that would meet the apparently-low standard? I thought we were past the era when we looked to other countries to tell us what was new and exciting.
  8. Some very nice handiwork in this thread makes me want to do something just for the sake of it.
  9. "In this episode of Barry Goes Boating, Barry demonstrates the ways in which a straightforward stability test can go off the rails."

    Congratulations Tim on your rebound from a setback and for a very entertaining and informative thread.

    It is all very clean and professional. I was particularly impressed with the guides to keep the foam feeding into the circular saw blade. Nice new signature Clipper!
  12. Boarding party at the ready (including locksmiths and someone who can disable the engine/s)?

    A forlorn sight.
  14. Biggest problem ever solved on this site? Gotta be up there anyway. What's next?
  15. One man's sail-trasher is another man's best customer... So long as they don't complain that their sails don't last.
