  1. Wellll... who serviced the prop last, a pity you shifted her coz it is his issue.
  2. And a shame none are keen enough for a good practice and kite blast the day before the Logan
  3. Yes well done to IT carrying on and managing to maintain the standards of BP.
  4. My Batteries are switched off when I leave the boat but small solar is wired to the house one (through mppt charger) and happily as it turns out also feeds the start battery through the VSR , I had not realised that it could work both ways. Have not had to plug in for five years.
  5. MB you are I believe correct, I too have taken issue with some of the Maritime Museums Woollacott drawings wrongly labelled (in recent times). Strangely the articles back in the day all refer to the New Golden Hind as a schooner whereas the pics all show a ketch!
  6. Aha that makes sense, I wondered why they hadnt entered in droves
  7. waikiore

    Is a SSB Radio

    Yes I would be hanging on to it as IT says
  8. Over 200 entries for this race this weekend! strange what has happened to those hard men in the Emmies -after all they raced exactly this piece of water for all these years with the squadron and Victoria, some of us old luggers are doing it in 7' prams
  9. That looks very cheap..... I would tend to go for a Blue Seas Marine version which works superbly on my 10M keeler doing all the same stuff, (no connection to Lustys who sell them)
  10. I for one like the pictures that you have up now.
  11. If so she was built for the MP Harry R Jenkins and he cruised the Pacific in her then NZ Government used her for supply work during the war and afterwards sold on to Athol Rusden and partners, burnt to the waterline in the Tuamotus around 51
  12. Maybe ?? The New Golden Hind -designed by Chas Bailey jr and built by Deemings in the BOI the timing is right.
  13. Looks like one of the old Tahitian trading schooners, American origin?
  14. Young Buck in your prime then !
  15. This and a 1020 are poles apart, 1020 ideal for round here, HR ideal for ocean walloping and living on.
  16. Unlikely that is a current listing as she went for almost half that and still has the ratty original engine, Camerons last line should be taken seriously.
  17. I too like their boats, but having been on a sistership that price is way high for a small one needing a new donk. Yes I am aware of the usual resale prices in Europe.
  18. Yes I think the Andersen ribs go the other way-there were some interim Harken/Barbarossa winches that looked like that, though the base does look Maxwell....
  19. Late model small (yacht) sized Yanmars use Johnson pumps, if you match up the right one they are a lot cheaper, the earlier ones likewise had Jabsco pumps also a lot cheaper, where you are really stuck is the launch size Yanmars which use Kinki pumps look away KM there is no agent and man do they fleece you. Typical example of current pricing here Northern Lights 3 cylinder 30Hp raw water pump $575.00 retail Yanmar 3 cylinder 30Hp raw water pump $1600.00 retail (both plus gst)
  20. Fish is correct on this, this development has been through all the hoops -so to complain about it now years on is a bit er rich....
  21. Yes for my yacht on mooring I always row out, and this Easter reminded me the changes that have occurred since I was young and pushing the sail everywhere ideology, I have kids and a regular job so to be able to go cruising/racing where and when I want and return in good time to meet commitments it is necessary to have a reliable powerful diesel, and yes after tall ships last year I motored back to Westhaven in one go, (I dont recommend it -then heading straight to work) Just pointing out that the capability is needed for most of the current Auckland fleet.
  22. SYO some props are controllable pitch -or like mine have two different pitch settings, not the Autoprop which sets itself -not ideal in a big and bouncy sea, check out Torqeedo pricing in the UK for an indication in a competitive market where it really lies against other small (four stroke) outboards.
  23. Its the RYA who is pushing this in response to an enquiry from the DOT (England) I tend to agree with Aardvarkash
