    Grief

    "Grief is a broken heart that the head can't heal. Slowly the head and the heart understand each other. They smile gently and walk on together." Good luck. It's always with you but morphs. Get some counselling if you think it will help.
  2. Do we know who it was that got caught, and rightly so, trying to take their boats out of Auckland's Level 3 to Coromandel?
  3. 1. Project Gutenberg: Free eBooks https://www.gutenberg.org 2. graycity.net
  4. You can very easily get rolled in the Hauraki Gulf. As always get good weather reports and don't take risks you aren't capable of handling. Make sure your stormboards are in, all hatches dogged down, secured everything, are clipped on, wearing your life jacket and have a saftey knife attached to yourself. It's fundamental that you learn how to heave-to. And take two or three forms of communication.
  5. Report said "many relatively modern production vessels, such as Essence, are constructed from materials that are more susceptible to flexing under pressure. This, when combined with the larger windows that are commonly found in modern sailing vessels, makes the rebated substrate area around the windows more susceptible to failure." Seems they mean the vessel wasn't seaworthy. So even if the storm covers had been fitted they would have needed substantial engineering attachment to stop them being blown out.
  6. The offending post SUPPORTED the kick in the face (didn't just post a link Harry). That's untenable. As for self-defence argument, gimme a break.
  7. The offensive post has been removed. Hopefully the offender has been given a warning.
  8. I find it disgusting that a member on this site can promote the violence of kicking someone in the face, regardless of what "may" have happened first. This violates our rules. Moderator, could you delete it and post a message as to why? Thanks. Also interesting to note that even the workers quoted in the NZ Herald today did not support kicking: "Then there are the workers. A party from that side said today: "I think kicking the protester in the head was way too far and a shocking act but I would like to see a story written about what the workers are put though every day from these so-call
  9. My old hometown bar. BTW it's not Southport which is a bit further north.
  10. And don't forget tidal rise/fall when calculating your scope.
  11. You need much more chain by the sound of it.
  12. I don't answer silly questions
