  1. Def keen for a few spares on the boat. Ill be on one of the check in tables at breifing
  2. What a useful comment. Who reads the Herald?
  3. I used to wet the boards of my GBE with seawater before putting them down. Once I sprayed them with dry glide or similar, but be aware if you do that, painting and repairs etc need really really good prep. I found wet and dry them nice and smooth and wet them and that was enough. Could never move under load, dont worry about that.
  4. Have you looked on your foredeck? I think there is one there. Looks a lot like a spinnaker pole?
  5. Seems to be a lot of interest already, which is awesome. Gale Force is keen for sure.

    I made one for Gale Force. We found it incredibly useful for shorthanded racing to precent wraps when doing marginal hoists or gybes.

    It is incredibly annoying. And why oh why did the NZL team do soooo bad?
  8. Slow may be a wiring issue. No need to ask how i just learnt that.
  9. It sure was a great regatta. I was racing in the 40R div, and we had 12 W/L races over 3 days. Solid breeze on the weekend, some extremely close racing, big speeds downhill. Extremely hard work, can hardly move today!
  10. So for an update. Acetone did indeed damage the conduit, which i had to rip out, and now need to replace. 3-4 hours all up (just removing the wires) should have gone full destruction mode at the beginning and saved time. Ended up damaging the switch wires and nav light wires with all the pulling, so even more to redo. Expanding foam will not be used again! Now to fix the blocked toilet while i get new cables made up...
  11. I have anchor winch cables and nav light wires i need to replace, but they are well glued into a conduit by expanding foam of some kind, presumably to stop leaks. Any ideas on how to remove them?
  12. My god there are some boring old men with selective memories. I know you think you recall close racing with lead changes and exciting starts, but that is such rose tinted glasses nonsense. IACC racing was in general so boring it puts insomniacs to sleep. Sure there was some epic racing, but in general, win the start, win the race. Just like now. go on youtube and watch. My god its dull

    herald ban?

    Good job. The joke of a newspaper has been doing so much unnecessary sh*t stirring over the last year about ETNZ. There is a difference between raising valid concerns over taxpayer money and click baiting with sensational headlines.
