  1. Was that the aqua vitae that Garry is now doing up?

    yup, I've built a couple now, one measured and cut by hand, one CNC'd. Would only CNC going forward.

    that's a nice looking dinghy very nice looking dinghy. ugly rig, not as slippery under sail I'm sure, but looks like could carry more people and gear .
  4. What are your thoughts on what it should be? On say a 40' keel boat
  5. You cant call yourself a keel yacht with a lifting keel?
  6. Thanks, too small for me.
  7. The dinghy size is 2.4? I have a similar bag, well attacked by UV, for my 2.7 zodiac. Assume it wont work?

    Great racing to watch this event. I watched the replay on youtube using a vpn on the ipad, some extremely close finishes
  9. I was a bit wrong (or the price has gone up). 6 pin and $42 https://nz.rs-online.com/web/p/industrial-circular-connectors/1473049/?relevancy-data=7365617263685F636173636164655F6F726465723D31267365617263685F696E746572666163655F6E616D653D4931384E53656172636847656E65726963267365617263685F6C616E67756167655F757365643D656E267365617263685F6D617463685F6D6F64653D6D61746368616C6C7061727469616C267365617263685F7061747465726E5F6D6174636865643D5E5B5C707B4C7D5C707B4E647D2D2C2F255C2E5D2B24267365617263685F7061747465726E5F6F726465723D313133267365617263685F73745F6E6F726D616C697365643D59267365617263685F72657
  10. Not answering the question, but def related. The 5(?) pin plugs for the Raymarine ST1000 and ST2000 can be bought from RS for 1/3 of the cost of through Raymarine. They come from the same manufacturer. I did it a few years ago, $25 v $75 from memory (and that $75 might have been a mates rate cost).
  11. Im excited. Should be a fun trip to coromandel. Home, not so much
  12. My finger has fanworm on it. The finger is where the boat (sadly) spends most of its time. What a joke
  13. Are they serious? I have to comply but the finger I tie up to doesn't as it is 'commercial' ? FFS
  14. I assume this applies to marina pontoons/fingers?
  15. Try Max at Stay Tuned rigging for the stays
  16. Def keen for a few spares on the boat. Ill be on one of the check in tables at breifing
  17. What a useful comment. Who reads the Herald?
  18. 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.
  19. Have you looked on your foredeck? I think there is one there. Looks a lot like a spinnaker pole?
  20. Seems to be a lot of interest already, which is awesome. Gale Force is keen for sure.
  21. Clipper

    Spinnaker Net

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