  3. What sort of boat Leon?
  4. For an 8.5 multihull that will get cleaned regularly do you see any benefit in going for a harder antifoul and burnishing?
  5. How much of the epoxy market is finished product shipped in and how much is contract manufactured onshore?
  6. TP52 Med Cup boats are nuts, TWS 14 knots, TWA of 36°-38°, Jib lead about 3.2° off centerline r. 9.1 knots boat speed Also that jib likely costs more than my entire boat!
  7. I bought the openwind setup last year for my 8.5 tri, plays nicely delivering AWA and AWS straight into the N2K bus.(they do a 0183 version as well) Unfortunatly the boat is on my driveway being repaired so can't give definitive info for sure how good it is in use, but on the test bench my triton displays (and the vulcan) will do the TWA and TWS calculations. Also the unit has been out in the elements screwed on the fence post for the last year, seems fine. In research for finding a rotating mast solution, the Openwind was the cheapest black box solution that was straight plug and pl

    Weather apps

    Vulcan 7r targets

    I’ve setting up a Vulcan, and I can input target upwind and downwind angles and speeds across the wind range. in the files section there is reference to polar tables. Is it possible to run full polars on this unit, or is this just a holding area for pushing files to a H5000?
  14. According to offical stats over 60% of submissions we re supportive. I can just imagine it... " We support improving the the marine habitat BUT... whoa - dont need to read any further that, tick in the support box"

    Choosing a berth

    Have you enquired with the westhaven office? I thought they were pretty much full. Beggars can't be choosers and all that, but westhaven is pretty well sheltered, theres not much between the berths so long as you fit

    Electric outboards

  20. 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?
  21. 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?
