  1. 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.
  2. I'm really enjoying following this adventure. He's a man on a mission and quite inspiring.
  3. 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.
  4. Jackson bay might be a good option right now?
  5. 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.

  7. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I agree on the sea of Cortez. Spent a season cruising there. Cabo San Lucas and La Paz are really fun places.
  11. The weiti river bar was fully closed out with surf yesterday afternoon. First time I have ever seen that.
  12. My new boat draws 2.15m and I will be keeping it up the river just past the stillwater wharf. Pretty keen to hear more of your thoughts on the bar depth and the best way to go. I am delivering it down this weekend.
  13. We never had to bribe anyone anywhere on our trip. Officials were friendly and helpful everywhere. Worst we had was in the canary islands where I made a mistake clearing out in Gibraltar and they got a bit upset with me. Oh and I had a falling out with the officials in Antigua when they tried to charge me $90 departure tax for each of my 3 boys as they were classed as passengers not crew. However the boat boys in the Caribbean can be a little pushy and half the time it seems like you are paying them to just leave you alone. They like to lead you into the bay and show you where to anchor,
  14. Put me on the list John. I would love to do some racing at some stage. Need to orser a few new parts for my boat though...
