  1. All good. I was watching it for a while and just should have brought it but only needed that part so seemed a waste if someone wanted the whole thing.
  2. Winter did you buy the whole thing? I would be keen on the actuator if you didn't need that part.
  3. We are at pigeon bay in the corromandel rafted up to friends. Not too bad here but still fresh and wet. About 25 boats in the bay with us. Found a westhaven berth so off at 5am so I can at least get the afternoon at work. We have moved the Evolution loft to westhaven for the rest of the year until the new loft is finished.
  4. Hey David, what's the bar like right now? We were planning to come home today or tomorrow but I'm worried about the river entrance and then need to get to westhaven for the Anzac race on Friday anyway but they are completely full and not taking any bookings. Anyone got a westhaven berth they are not using for the rest of the week and would rent out to me?
  5. Im no expert but mucked around on a few diesels. I guess the first thing to check is if there is diesel actually getting to the engine. Could be a blocked filter or Air in the system but normally it would be a gradual fuel starvation and slow loss of power rather than an abrubt stop. The 2 fuel filters should be both on the intake side, a primary and a secondary. primary being combined with a water trap and then the secondary being a much finer filter. When were the filters last replaced? That oil filter looks like its been there a while... Normally these would be done eve
  6. Its really just amazing.

    Anyone know of someone driving back saturday that has space for me?
  10. Yeah they are doing great. The boat has had a major turbo charge He would have spent substantially more than I paid for my whole boat on upgrades over the last year. Has done pretty much everything you could do to an older Elliott 13 to pimp it out. Its a very nice boat now but not sure if 'value' is a good word to use, that sh*t aint cheap!
  11. Sadly I think it will never sail again. Will get stripped and cut into pieces.
  12. Doubled up mine and checked all the boats on moorings around me. Lucky I did as a couple had issues which would have caused trouble. One boat had its stern bridal line wrapped twice around the rudder and that would have been the windward line. Was a bloody mission to sort out but better than having them break free and take us out. Think its going to be blowing 50+kts straight down the Weiti river in the wee hours of the night, could get interesting. Blokarting mission on the west coast tomorrow! Yeehaa.
  13. Interesting post from Jarle on facebook just now replying to the stuff article. I actually did a bit of sail work for him before both voyages. He was a likable guy but clearly a cowboy who loved defying the rules. https://www.facebook.com/101634540870/posts/10159564377035871/?sfnsn=mo Text pasted below. Hi sailors and adventurers out there!
