    Is Legacy still for sale? The owner has a new toy in Motorboat II.
  2. The instruction sheet says replacement should only be by a qualified watchmaker. Has anyone had a go themselves or have they had a good experience with an Auckland based watchmaker? My concern is that if it's not done properly it will always leak. 8. BATTERY REPLACEMENT The watch and timer battery should be replaced by a qualified watchmaker. Watch: 1x CR2032 3.0 volt Lithium battery Timer: 2x CR2032 3.0 volt Lithium battery
  3. Maybe it could top up Auckland's water supply while it was docked?
  4. Mostly an unreasonable walk from the bus to the pier carrying sailing gear including supplies for the cruise back along with where do they get a bus when we got back at 1am? You could say they should stay on the boat but that the end of the day it's a marina to promote the enjoyment of using the boat. This is becoming less enjoyable when where to park a car is the major consideration.

  16. Following a post from the Beach Haven Community Constables Facebook page. Might be a bit old as was dated Sept 8. Hi everybody. We have arrested a male yesterday who was observed acting suspiciously around boats moored around Chelsea point and down the harbour towards Greenhithe. When we searched his vehicle we have located 4 outboard motors all between 6 and 10 hp along with a number of copper and brass items off boats.
