  1. Thanks CD. I do like the idea of temp controllable as per the unit u mentioned. Has it got seperate compartments? When my system was working it was on or off, and when on, freezing every bloody thing was only a matter of time. Hopefully Darrin can help.
  2. Slight drift here but in coming months I will be faced with dealing with an out of service compressor driven system. What I mean by that is that as a consequence of a lack of use, I think my system has de-gassed itself, and I guess - this has caused a vacuum effect which has deformed the s/s fridge/freezer box. No cold beersies for me atm So - I need to take stock of the bits I have, determine if they are salvageable, determine what the cost of returning to service would be, and then compare that to the cost of changing to a more 'efficient' system. IT - I recall you saying you are a res
  3. Much respect for this guy, but crikey, Swirly is little. He must be a bit madder than your average mad guy. I suppose its as they say - "its not the size of the dog in the fight..."
  4. I have to replace my start battery. The experts have u believe its gotta be a 'marine' battery. Seems to me to be another way of extracting more wedge Roughly 100% more. As an example - 57MF 530cca 12v car batt =$133 but double that for a 57MF M, also 530CCA. Seems like mmms must be bloody valuable. Isn't 12v 12v no matter what?
  5. I gotta renew all of my squabs. Any hints on whats good or bad/ where to get it?
  6. No thats ok - thanks for the replyi have all info i need. Cheers
  7. found her on YNZ site - reg # 4995 but no other info. And whaddaya know he did lots of big boats.
  8. Anybody know this boat? I want to know some basic stuff - what is she -I'd guess a Raven (shld never have given up my dream of bein a copper eh) etc. I was told she is a 36 but must admit thought Ravens were max 31' - Mostly I want to know what weight.. cheers
  9. I'd definitely call AT moorings. They are pretty helpful, but you will have to know with certainty which mooring number it is. There are limitations over how long you can own and rent a mooring out to someone else and i know where i live this caused a few harsh words. The situation u allude to is not uncommon and in ATs defence i think they do try to sweep the rats out from time to time. Is it a swing mooring or a fore n aft pile set up? I think that has a huge bearing on your questions - if piles, likely the super shitty owns em and the 'owners' gear is the rope connecting your boat to

    To be fair HT - that was quite clever, when consider all the otherdumbshit mankind does.
  11. Thanks for that link Muzled. 100% - worthwhile.
  12. yes my intent was to send it to them but TBH I think there are so many get out of jail clauses already on display that I would feel reluctant to bother. Bloody shame because these units are excellent
  13. Well... maybe. Not saying anything bad but here is reply I got from last nights email to Southern Plumbing. In fact thumbs up for fast reply.. We would start with a service call which is $320.00 incl GST. This covers the first hour and 15 minutes of labour on the job. Anything beyond that the Plumber/Gas fitter will discuss with you. Materials are extra. We require you to be onsite when we are here for the service call. If there is rubber hose used as gas piping, we cannot do any work or testing until this is replaced with a suitable pipe. In Order for us t

    Makes me think that maybe the big audience are Euro countries rather than USA cos it would be MPH if it was aimed at them.
  15. ...because now i have to replace the gaskets.
  16. Call me stupid but yesterday I decided that i needed to take the powerhead off to check cooling water flow. Anybody done it b4 and able to offer handy hints or know of pitfalls to be aware of
  17. Big enuff 4 one inhabitant and able to support that one i.e. arable, & provide shelter or a site where shelter could be built. Close to an ice cream shop. After all othef things - is life really possible without icecream
  18. Kind of staggers me a bit - this clumsy stuff going on. It looked like many of the guys yesterday afternoon were like star struck schoolboys on their 1st rodeo. Bertarelli (I think) was given the honour of handing out the medals and pretty rudely it seemed a lot of the ETNZ people (Dalton included) just steamed past as if he weren't there and then kinda took the medal as an afterthought. Maybe they were caught up in the moment but if not, its either axes being ground or they're just plain rude. I think they have to behave better than this, and now the squaddie are bumbling their wa

  20. Pricks. Should be keel hauled for their trouble and then bloody tarred and feathered.
  21. I'd reckon there's a point to argue BP. Pretty sure commerce commission might have a few things to say about this sort of behaviour. To my mind its like false advertising. The price list is current, doesn't indicate it's subject to change without prior notification and while every business has to have that right, there are rules about how they must go about it. If they didnt tell u at the time of booking I'd say its too late. Toe rags.
  22. Nice idea, and I think they should - but with the provisio that it would be a promo tour - 'coming to a town near you' kind of deal. Get the design out there and racing, show the public what they can do, learn about course requirements and develop the boat some more - but is the cup up for grabs? Nah! That's the defenders prerogative.
