  1. I had a big clean up this week and dragged out a couple of old rafts. Pulled the cords to see what would happen. First was a 1988 rfd brand 4 person. It blew up then the relief valve cracked and fell off. Useless and very cheap thin plastic like a kids paddling pool. Next was a 1986 Avon 6 person. This worked well and good strong construction. Lots of gear inside and everything still working other than the torch. Sold as paddling pool and looking like it would still last for a long time. Was last serviced 2003
  2. I bought this main in Brisbane as a spare for a trip to Auckland but have never used it. I was told it is a heavy sail made for a circumnavigation which never happened and so it was changed for a lighter main. Doesn’t look like it has had much use and has sat it my garage for the last 4 years or so. $450. Its in New Plymouth
  3. Interested in buying your Navik. Please send me an email. Mojomarine34@gmail.com

  4. Pretty sure I have a complete Navik plastimo system here I can sell $600
  5. Trying to send you a message for the Suzuki.
  6. I protected my 2000 with a simple cover roughly made from clear plastic like dodger clears. Keeps rain and spray off and you can still see and operate the buttons etc.
  7. I spent a week there in the late 70s it was a back packer spot with beach hut accommodation. I spent as much money as I could but at the end of a week it was still less than $20.
  8. I once sold a clapped out trailer sailer to a guy who planned to drag it to the top of a hill on his remote farm as a novelty hut. Put it on trademe for a dollar reserve with potential as sleep out or play hut. Someone might even patch it up and put it on a lake with an outboard.
  9. Yes but will stick with the original name Aroha. Love it and easy to search its history from there. There was a big one for sale in Europe somewhere but bit unproven and not that cheap. I looked at this one about 10 years ago in whangaroa but it was more expensive and we struggled to make ground to windward when we went for a sail. The hulls were really dirty though. It seems to slip along nicely when its clean though.
  10. I did notice lots of people taking photos of it as I sailed into Auckland. It’s a bit unusual but will be handy for exploring up narrow creeks with out worrying about having to turn around to get back out !! Could name it to and fro but I just call it the backwards forwards boat.
  11. Yes sailed it from taipa to Auckland just before the first lockdown. Parked up for a spruce up before this summer Then some cruising around the gulf
  12. Harryproa site has all the info but for me mainly the price was right for a low maintenance shallow draught multi that is not too old and has 2 double berths
  13. I will need to concentrate to remember to turn my Nav lights around the right way when I am sailing backwards on my backwards forwards boat
