  1. Where is the boat currently registered? You need to get a certificate of cancellation of the current registration and have that officially translated to english before you can register in NZ. That normally takes longer than the NZ registration. France for example needs the boats original registration document sent to France before they will cancel it. It's a major pain in the ass. We contacted Maritime NZ early and had all the paperwork done so as soon as we sent the document they did it the same day. We actually departed New Caledonia on the french registration and arrived
  2. Yup he's done all my surveys and pre purchase inspections and does a really good job.
  3. Fine looking schooner that looks like it's about to slide off the grid there PB!

    Neat Video Links

    Yup that was a fun ride! We have some epic times on that little boat.
  5. The latest on NZL 20.
  6. Yup we had an awesome day out there but the old main finally gave in. We tried to carry on with just the jib but it was pretty slow so we decided to get home and pack it up before dark. Just a simple seam coming undone and a very easy fix. I have a new main half finished anyway as I knew that one was right at the end of its life.
  7. Saw this picture on Facebook today.
  8. Pretty sure you need to remove the cannister. They are usually more worried about it inflating in an overhead locker and blowing the locker apart!
  9. That almost looks like a class legal 1020 genoa track there Cam....
  10. Would think this one is ideal for you. https://www.trademe.co.nz/4089656082
  11. Yup totally. It's been a shocker.
  12. Rogue 3 is the finish boat this time so just follow the noise.
  13. Certainly a Massive boat party in Wynyard quarter....
  14. Anyone else thinking of entering? I'm going to chuck my entry in today. What's not to like, free berthage in the viaduct for the weekend, party with a live band right beside the boats (Phil hart I believe), a fun race with hopefully a heap of boats and if it all goes well a real festive raft up party in wynyard quarter reminiscent of the old Sydney hobart and fastnet days where the boats all piled into whatever spot they could fit and rafted 20+boats deep. I think it's a cool concept. Perfect weekend for me as I have sythony in the domain Saturday night (should be a truly epi
  15. That's very sad news he was a great guy. I had no idea he was even sick.
  16. I have heard its a Black 50ft(ish) performance multihull.
  17. Agreed. This one has the potential to be the real deal.
  18. Im guessing that you need to go into a Marina or Q Dock to clear customs and Bio Security so insurance is a legal requirement for that?
  19. Weiti River. The current was ripping.
  20. We were also hit on our mooring by another boat that came loose and sustained some damage. Quite a few boats here with damage. To be honest it was terrifying and very very close to catastrophic for us and many boats around us. We had an H28 wrapped around our bow and slowly going under the boat. I cant believe our mooring held. Luckily the incoming tide slowed down the current after a few hours otherwise it would have likely been much worse. Closest I have ever come to losing my boat I think.
  21. I think I saw you out there on Saturday near gulf harbour. Boat looked good and was sailing fast. Managed to get a few photos.
  22. On all of our bigger cruising boats we have had the pole stored on the mast and was very happy with it. But those were bigger boats with long and heavy poles. You need a track up the mast same length as your spinnaker pole to use that system as tbe pole butt end needs to be pulled up so it's bloody expensive. I think it's unnecessary on any boat under about 42ft. Great for making kids swings though!
  23. West coast for me as well. Wait for a weather window in the Bay of islands or whangaroa and go from there.
  24. The rain has finally stopped for us in the far north. Even a few patches of blue sky appearing. Making the most of the fine spell and departed Mangonui heading to Matai bay and onto the KariKari peninsula. Hopefully the kids can get some beach time and surfing after 5 days of wind and rain. Still keeping a close eye on this next storm but the far north seems to get a fair bit less of it.
