  1. Yeah those look good. I need to beg/borrow/rent one though as buying the charger is almost as expensive as battery replacement... !
  2. I've got some 12v lead acid batteries that were neglected (not by me!) and I'm wondering about reconditioning / desulphating. Not marine, but deep cycle (mobility scooter). Does anyone know of a place on the shore that does this?
  3. On the other hand, if you want to abandon a boat you hardly need to put it on a mooring to do so...
  4. The bond idea is appealing, but it would have to be pretty significant. I remember another thread with disposal cost estimates. 5k? 10k?
  5. Sad to hear about metro. Remember when she was sailing with DYC, ~2011? That feedback profile doesn't look half bad compared to many of the disasters I've come across on TM.
  6. Thanks. At first I was disappointed that it wasn't the boat, but that's a good laugh.
  7. They should just buy winddan and call it the new coastguard app.

    They're quick

    Nice. Would be worrying if your zillion dollar boat wasn't faster than a nacra 17 though!
  9. it you want cheap, there's plenty out there -- but as above, much is crap.
  10. Our night-rate EV power is ~11c/kwh, and some areas are lower. But you're right that it's not $2 (but still way less than ~$100 for petrol).
  11. Ah yes, the old finance committee problem. I think we all know and understand that one.
  12. Yes, but you can make it from water+electricity -- unlike diesel. Turning 'naki gas into hydrogen doesn't make a lot of sense, but you could certainly use all of that spare electricity down south if the smelter stops using it.
  13. There's a reason everything has gone li-ion these days.
  14. then you couldn't come to NZ!
  15. maybe at high tide. but then you'd probably be responsible for it!
