  1. Coming into Izzy Bay after dark recently, I nearly ran into the Southern Progress. It has 3 dim lights at various heights and location visible from astern, no proper anchor light. Slightly confusing as I thought I was looking at 3 different size yachts further up the bay.
  2. I'm not exactly sure what's wrong, but it shows no signs of life. Cannot be lit or started. Thanks for the offer of the spares. If I can find someone to take a look, I may grab them off you.
  3. The lower half looks identical to the one on Elly. Same knobs and pump. Except my one had meths burners. Was great until the burners got too corroded.
  4. They have explicitly ruled out lockdowns and borders.
  5. Damn I wish I saw this earlier! My Mariner is working fine apart from the oven. Any recommendations on who can fix these?
  6. This interview with his crew mate gives another perspective: https://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/exploration-survival/rough-passage/ It took me weeks to reach Jarle. When I did, I mentioned that captain Don McIntyre, one of the most accomplished seamen in the Antarctic, spoke highly of him. “Don McIntyre is a stuck-up self digging fool who was the first to judge fallen men,” Jarle replied within hours. He would be going to court soon, he wrote.
  7. You mean a Farr 1020 went all the way to Minerva reef for a bit of fishing?
  8. I did a chinese gybe, and bent the pushpit in half on Elly!
  9. You can get a remote speaker that plugs into the VHF, and mount it in the cockpit or throw it under the dodger. https://www.smartmarine.co.nz/product/14283/spk45-water-resistant-extension-speaker-white/17406?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuf21x6O49QIVsyCtBh2Ehg2qEAQYASABEgL-7vD_BwE
  10. They were doing very well in the Round Rangitoto race a few years ago, but missed the North Head buoy so had to retire.
  11. That is incorrect. Most islands you can NOT take dogs ashore. Any islands owned by DOC do not allow this. Rotoroa, and Great Mercury are privately owned but don't want dogs on shore. DOC Auckland: https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/know-before-you-go/dog-access/where-can-i-take-my-dog/auckland-dog-access/ DOC Northland: https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/know-before-you-go/dog-access/where-can-i-take-my-dog/northland-dog-access/
  12. Yep, Cyclone Cody headed our way. Could hit BOP Sunday night.
  13. Great photos! What bay is the first one?
  14. Have you tried Half Moon Bay Electrical? https://www.hmbe.co.nz/
  15. Of all the things I cast, Netflix works the best.
