  1. Fogg, I brought the Ross 1066 Margaritaville. Got to sell the SR26 if anyone is keen!

    I have heard that it also helps them to gain traction and control if the boat completley stalls out due to low speed, thats why it has the aggressive edges. The plan is to luff hard and park the other boat and then be able to hold their ground and accelerate away, something like that anyway.

    Coastal 2020

    I would call it an 'Event' rather than having to define it as either a race or a party. People do these 'events' for many different reasons but in all cases its for a weekend enjoying doing what you love. When you go cruising is it about the passage or the destination, the social times catching up with friends or the solitude of ancoring in a quiet bay away from the city? When you go to a music festival is it more about the music or the dancing, getting together with friends for a good time or just appreicating good music? Coastal classic gives you all of the above and doing we
  4. I am looking for a blade for a 3 bladed Gori folding prop 16.5 x 12 RH. My new boat has a kiwi prop on there now but came with a spare gori prop that lost a blade a while back. Motoring performance is OK but I suspect the gori will perform a bit better than the kiwi prop and I like the idea of the overdrive for calm water and motorsailing. Just asking on the off chance someone had a similar issue and still has the other 2 blades.
  5. I'm really enjoying following this adventure. He's a man on a mission and quite inspiring.
  6. Looks like he is in, some good seamanship there. Well done, I would say its been a very tough few days. Dont think queen charlotte sounds would ever get cold enough for true catabatic winds? Milford sounds maybe. Will certainly be gusty.
  7. Jackson bay might be a good option right now?
  8. I really wouldnt want to be where he is right now! I have been hammered pretty hard outside milford sound twice, the waves bounce off the cliffs and turn it into a real washing machine. You have the southern ocean swell and the wind waves on top of each other. Not a huge amount of anchoring options once hes in there either. I hope everything works out OK for him.

  10. Wow what an impressive blog. I just lost a few hours there. Some of my bucket list items right there.

    La Di Da is at pine harbour and looks really nice these days. An immaculate boat that anyone would be proud to own.
  12. Our insurance for the passage from France to NZ in a 9 year old 50 beneteau was only around 3.5k a year. Roughly 1% of the replacement cost of the boat.
  13. I agree on the sea of Cortez. Spent a season cruising there. Cabo San Lucas and La Paz are really fun places.
