  1. Filled with epoxy, drill, re-tap, seems all good. Just need some wind to stress test it now!
  2. Thanks all. I'm thinking epoxy is the best option here.
  3. I'm trying to fill a screw hole in a fibreglass dinghy hull which has pulled out. I want to fill it and then retap. I'm trying to use polyester resin for that, but it's too thick to run into the hole properly without drilling it out further. So... can I think the resin? Should I drill out the hole? Use something else entirely? I don't have access to the back so the threads need to bite, can't bolt through.
  4. Wow. That doesn't leave many places that they'll take! We used to have Bailey's on a swing moorning. Been a few years though, can't say for sure that they still do.
  5. Seems to me that beefing up the AKL HM to better enforce the regs that do exist might be the middle ground that satisfies everyone.

    New Genoa

    Seems like offshore manufacture is going to be the way to go for a cruising sail. Only real question is how much you pay for someone local to spec it and take some service responsibility.
  7. And if you do have waterfront, you probably don't care about the costs of keeping the boat.
  8. I watched more of that video than I care to admit. Surprisingly entertaining. Did he really say he waterblasted the inside!?
  9. All the moreso as marina costs go up and up and up.
  10. > Some salient advice for cheap yacht buyers Don't ?
  11. You might be a while waiting for him to see this, probably best to ring.
  12. Or to be fair, to pay marina costs, which is a biggie.
  13. Yeah I was just looking at that. Could be unpleasant. Especially with tidal stream against.
  14. Legacy and rum bucket also turned back?
  15. Just sourcing the bolts, or having someone do the whole job?
  16. That's probably just the hold amount, not the final charge.
  17. I always know when there's going to be a general recall. It's when I've somehow managed to get a good start for once.
  18. I thought it was interesting how long it took for someone to comment here on the news at all. Everybody's over it and nobody cares anymore? Dalts may have got top $ for the hosting rights but pretty sure he's lost an awful lot of NZ support, goodwill and interest. We will all be welcome if we fly to Barca -- yeah, nah.

    A Nice Evening

    This weekend. Looking a bit drifty tonight unfortunately, but sunny and warm!
  20. New haulout technique. Antifoul the bow this tide, swap the lines, stern on the next!
  21. I'd think anything of that size would be tight. The raven is already a "modest" rig.
  22. I thought we decided (several pages back) that those rules apply throughout the "Auckland region" and thus island bay, izzy bay and beyond?
  23. I love how this thread springs periodically back to life at various times over the past decade! I guess it's home to (small) Shoalcraft 30 owners club...
  24. I hope not. If so, what on earth were they doing out in this!?
  25. Peak draw only, not sustained. But probably not something you'd want your boat system trying to cope with!
