    Anchor chain

    Where would be the best deal on anchor chain for 31 ft boat I think a bout 40 ft thanks
  4. So will my red green at the top of the mast an white on the windex still be the deal I also have a riding light at the hounds
  5. Nice job how do you get on in the middle of the night with the water slurping about under the bunk
  6. Yes it would be siting on the base material wich would be full sealed to the deck reason is the under side of these tracks has two 5 mill wide areas to touch the deck an room for seal in the middle So was trying to make it better , thanks for you thoughts
  7. Need some more brains please I am solid blocking between deck beams to re seal the Genoa tracks back in place on good timber decks , I see under the track 32 mill there isn’t much bearing face on the deck , being the rebated std track so I was thinking of a 32x3 mill alloy strap central under and sealed to the deck first full length then the track on top bolted through , I know timber is an option as a packer but thought alloy would be better
  8. Always wondered when I see ships anchored out side out place or off rangi what are they carrying , what’s under them that’s introducing its self to nz , I wonder if the authority’s dive the anchoring zone of rangi and see what’s growing there from the ships .
  9. Hi I got one of these and very yes flimsy ,so I cut the rizer to the handle off cause it quite tough , and went of to alloy place in silver dale picked a length of 40 mill tube , did some cutting in the shed ,vcut the wheel off on there axle and the hull supports, went to a guy in silver dale to weld up $70.00 later I hade the boat on , perfect and strong give it a try
  10. Provided the topper is strong enough ,but do you really want a 100 plus’s kg swinging off the top of your mast
  11. I hade the baileys phone call one night asking the age of the boat , as they won’t insure my boat if it was 40 years , I have been with them 24 years , but it was built in the late 80s , you kinda feel , thanks for being with us now f, o your to old even as I maintain to the full and some ,
  12. The boats just sold and sitting in tut

    Any body purchased the nz charts , been using it for a while and thinking about going further into it
  14. Yes the reason the factory one is so expensive it’s nearly un breakable where’s the diy version is flexible and can split I replace the exact think ones and learned
  15. Looks like galvanised keel bolts

  17. Yes it’s a beauty very shipy in side and an under floor motor nice boat
  18. theres heaps of these boats bobbing about with out an owner in the world ceramco was one and found a new owner and a smarten up , there’s one at Gulf harbour , there just doesn’t seem to be a life for these boats , shame ,
  19. Nice lines but it has all the problems with that keel , who wants it
  20. It may had hooked a mooring and flipped wheels would make it slow up wheels are behind the centreline , Maby wrong

    Rocna anchors

    Yes my 25 llb plough is great and trustworthy, the rocna has a unique edge on the bottom of the shaft if you study it when it rides up in the paw it elevates , then when let loose it slides off with out any assistance to a point where it tips off the boat So when the chain is released the anchor is off it was that I was interested in where’s the plough on my boat you have to give it a shove The comments are all interesting even from the designer

    OpenCPN no go

    Open cpn does not have an android version. I found out , go to the site with an android phone and try to download , it says not supported yet
  23. Been a plough man all my years with out any issues , but with a furler and fitting a anchor winch I see the plough will damage on its way over the deck , I watched a rocna winch home very neat up over the paw under the furler and with no effort , will be wanting 10 kg size , any issues found with these , seam very light compared to the plough,
