  1. Ir stayed up in Europe after the middle sea race and fastnet. Not exactly sure where.
  2. Motorboat II 2019. Finished at 9.20 I think it was. This ride was pretty loose at times.
  3. Crusader 2012. Finished at 8.02pm I think. Averaged 17kts to the poor knights.
  4. I was on the Ross 45 M1 for that race. Was a pretty epic hoon. For me though the 2012(?) On crusader and the 2019 on Motorboat II were better and we set records both times. The beat in from the Brett both races slowed things down a bit but the bit to the Brett was super quick.
  5. I was planning on a 2 hoop setup like a Bimini top with the aft frame attaching to the main frame just above the pushpit and a fore and aft brace.
  6. Thanks for all the info guys. Yeah I did think that tube might not be up to it but I already had the tube kicking around home so might just give it a go if the bending is not too expensive. I was going to make the bends less than 90 degrees so the top was actually forced into a slight bend to help stabilise it a bit. If it doesn't work I can make a proper MKII version. It needs to be light enough that I can remove it easily for racing. It's just s summer cruise temporary setup.
  7. Anyone got a recommendation for a tube bending company or got any bending gear themselves and able to do some bending for me? More than happy to pay. I want to make an arch for some solar panels on the back of the boat. 2 frames made with a 6m length each frame, 90 degree bends 1.6m from each end leaving a 2.8m top section between the bends. Will have 2 x 150w pannels around 10kg each. I have some 6m lengths of 25mm 1.2mm wall thickness stainless. Hopefully that's strong enough?
  8. I'm not sure about the mounting holes but can check. You can have it, no use to me.
  9. I think I might as well. Will check for you.
  10. I have always used navionics on my phone and tablet as well as open CPN loaded with google earth charts for the tougher spots in the pacific and other places with coral. However I have always had a chart plotter/MFD as backup.
  11. Im sure everyone would be more than happy to start off the westhaven tower if that was better. Maybe break up the start times so 150 boats are not in the start area at the same time?
  12. Yup I managed to get a copy also. Other interesting things I found in the regs. Im asuming the New Zealand Maritime Transport Act 1994 is the older regs that most boats are using? All the Australian and New Zealand Technical Regulators agree that this Standard should provide for particular appliances and components to be certified. It was also agreed that this Standard include a statement that this requirement would not apply retrospectively. 1.1.2 Exclusions This Standard does not apply to — (a) installations covered by statutory requirements such as the New
  13. Does anyone have a copy of the gas regs part 2 (boats and vehicles). I searched and could only find a copy that I had to pay $185 for. I need to clarify the current regulations. It seems to me that there is a big difference between meeting the current 'regulations' and meeting the current 'standards' Meeting the current 'regulations' means that boats pre 2013 are exempt unless they have work done on the gas system. Meeting the curent 'standards' means a full system rebuild for most boats. I feel the shits going to be hitting the fan on this subject soon. Insura
  14. Must just be the compressor clutch solenoid or something?
