  1. Young Mr Newcombe is down that way but cant remember what he trades as....
  2. Sopac has a pulley kit to convert early 3YM30's to serpentine belt or Balmar type alternators
  3. There are likely to be a few professional musicians on other boats too, we enjoyed their music wafting over the water last year and at tall ships this year.
  4. Oh well the official powerboat of the Prada cup was out there, the old Azimut now branded Yanmar -so probably had some Yanmar powered crash pumps aboard.
  5. Water bill current month $38.00 $7.80 is water used all the rest fixed waste charges?
  6. Some interesting observations after this first weekend, for the North Head viewer at least .Compared to the world series- Pros: The council have done away with the volunteer gestapo stopping people riding up the access road to the top, (this forced us to tramp all over the Maunga -causing erosion) Cons : They have opened up all the roads to traffic that were closed for the world series, making it less safe for the walker and young cyclist, and appear to have given up on security for the bikes.

  12. Bad news sorry to see that, DP you put us all to shame with that display-merry christmas from Auckland
  13. Pedalled down Thursday and Friday for the best view in Auckland at North Head, and could see what the commentators missed so very happy apart from the aggressive parking wardens telling me where to park my bike, which resulted instead of me staying on the seal, being forced to walk up and down the slopes -so much for protecting the Maunga ! The Maori concessions particularly the ice cream van were doing a roaring trade - but none of us regulars knew they were going to be there so were not holding the folding, and those further down the hill were unaware of them too. Anyway the council ha
