  1. Thank you; very helpful. You've clearly been through this gate. Kind regards, John B. PS: Coastal Classic?
  2. Hello all; I apologize if I am rebuilding a minefield... would anybody be able to point me in the direction of the legal framework and technical standards (the details) that require and enable me to achieve an EWOF, please? To date; I am seeing NZ Marina Operator Association information quoted. I have found this: https://www.nzmoa.com/connecting-to-electricity-1 and this; https://www.marinecert.co.nz/services/marine-ewof/ which is quite informative - but where are the Technical Standards that describe the materiel requirements and standards that achieve Compliance, and then
  3. KM, what is this stuff, and is it suitable for lifelines?
  4. Great, thanks. Hard to keep a proper and effective lookout with crew like that on deck...
  5. Yes, thanks, I/we gave it a go, but the boat was never designed for that set-up, a nicely balanced boat that can be steered by your fingertips. The tiller gives you that sense of feel and control. Where is Kick, which handstand, I’d like to come and have a look...?
  6. And, Sniper is a very good example, and yes, she was the plug.
  7. As I/we parted with the folding, I removed the old name... K8368, now Enigma1, is now operating out of Gulf Harbour. I also removed the wheel and restored her to the original cockpit layout, similar to when she was first called Expressway. The original owner was very helpful in making this happen. Some new sails, and other adjustments, and some listening and observing, has provided for an enjoyable E1050. Fantastic yachts around the cans, short or long haul circuits fully crewed or short handed, and a dream to cruise because of their hidden ‘large volume’. Very good sea keeping design
  8. Absolutey, she (Kick) looks like a great example. When are you bringing her home?
  9. Fantastic sailing awaits you, regards, John B (Enigma1 K8368).
