  1. Go fuel website clearly states: Bank Card Pre-authorisation - Transactions at marine payment terminals are all pre-authorised by your card provider. They (not GOfuel) might place a "hold" of $1500 on your account prior to dispensing your fuel. For most transactions, the hold is released immediately after completion, however some banks take longer (3-7 days) to release the hold. To prevent this, sign up for a "NO FEES" GOfuel fuel card. You will also receive a discount on every transaction. Sign-up now.
  2. He has mates/crew living on it. There is usually a tender tied up to it. It anchored up in Issy just before he went to prison. Prior to that it spent months anchored off Karaka at the mouth of the Tamaki river. It was a pain as in certain winds it used to obscure the Barber's Pole. I get tempted to ring DoC and say I saw a rat jump off it and swim to Motutapu.
  3. ^ The owner is currently in prison for rape. Google Craig Koning.
  4. You will need to get the new alternator modified to work with your external regulator. All the recent Yanmar marine engines appear to be shipped with 120A Valeo alternators, even the 3ym20 I replaced my 2gm20 with. It was set up with a serpentine belt and I utilised the belt load manager in my Balmar mc-614 reg to drop the max charging current to 90A.
  5. Whangaparapara harbour, Blind bay and Tryphena harbour are closed to fishing, shellfish collecting and anchoring. https://www.mpi.govt.nz/biosecurity/major-pest-and-disease-threats/caulerpa-brachypus-a-non-native-seaweed/
  6. ^ Brass Monkey is Jaycar's/Road Tech Marine's own brand.
  7. The factory supplied battery with the t1000-basic is a 24v 22Ah agm battery. The built-in battery charger is a 24v 5A agm charger. Agm batteries require charging at a rate of 0.2 - 0.3C which for a 20Ah battery is 4-6 amps. Using a larger capacity battery will extend the usage time of the tug but will also increase the charging time. Two things kill or as IT puts it murder agm batteries. First is taking the battery below 50% depth of discharge which for 12v batteries is around 12.06v and 24.12v for 24v batteries. The second thing that kills agm batteries is leaving them in a Partial
  8. You weren't the noisy boat on saturday night were you? the one with the loud stereo with thumping bass. We always anchor on the eastern side of Putiki. It is a much more pleasant outlook than looking at the ferries.
  9. The presenters of the Americas Cup and medals were Peter Montgomery and Bruno Troublé. The format for the medal presentation was that the team members names were called and they filed past the stage, put their hand in a box to grab a medal and move off.
  10. TNZ crew all cross in front of the mast. The helming position and mainsail trim are in front of the grinders.
  11. No, neither Wind Surf (Club Med 1) or Club Med 2. The Club Meds were basically small multi-decked cruise ships with sails.
  12. My engineer uses Quicksilver HP gear oil in my Yanmar SD25. He is a certified Yanmar service agent.
  13. Unfortunately Fred Andrews passed away a few years ago and the business is now owned by someone else. When I got my Prince refurbished by Fred 10+ years ago it came back like new with new burners, polished etc. It wasn't cheap but cheaper than buying a new marine stove. Fred said at the time he was running out of parts to do refurbs.
