    Electric outboards

    By the looks of it everyone is an electrican there
  2. The latest marketing spiel I heard on a new GPS unit was that it use L1 and L5 GNSS signals, as opposed to virtually all the recreational divices out there just uing L1, which putthe accuracy in the +\- 20cm range, with a 25hz update. Any one able to explain in laymans terms why this additional signal frequecy helps so much, something to do with ionosphere correction? Or is this snake oil?
  3. I’ve acquired a Vulcan 7 chart plotter, but it doesn’t come with anything over and above the base map. what do people recommend for the gulf and up to bay of islands? Mostly racing rather than cruising Are there other options bar cmap and navionics?
  4. yep neither side looks good in those videos
  5. its kicking off again at the marina... someone will likely be up for assult with that move https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/446456/waiheke-island-marina-video-appears-to-show-protester-kicked-in-face
  6. Whats the going rate on a dst810?
  7. 1 year mortgage rate now at 1.85%, time to talk to my sailmaker!
  8. All the old threads are all still there, just all moved into marine talk now.
  9. The round IOW race leak seems to have come from butterworth via the U.K. times. An LSD article, since pulled, suggested this race would be a “hype” race, and not actually part of the cup challenge. AC37 to be in NZ back end of next year... allegedly
  10. Looking for a backup generator for a plant. Standard unit, 1 year warrenty. Oh you wanted a 5 year warrenty? certinaly, that'll be another $32K please Sir Yep, pieces of paper get very expensive very quickly
  11. There is already the speed limit exemption in the upper Auckland harbour for race yachts, although that is not about protecting marine life. I do agree that having a unified consistent response to the consultation once it formally opens is the way forward. Hopefully everyone submits
  12. Repercussions for yacht racing are pretty serious, it would basically be the end of any sailing regattas, including bay week in the greater bay area, and also the coastal classic would be hamstrung. Just imagine it, you come though the gap at Pearcy leading your division, find a dolphin, so you have to stop and drop sails, meanwhile your competitors sail 400m away and continue on their merry way
  13. Back on topic, the pipe is in the harbour now, having the ballast blocks attached Also https://www.linkedin.com/posts/mcconnell-dowell_st-marys-bay-water-improvement-project-activity-6747246431226216448-NwwZ
