    AIS Transponder & transom antenna

    What disadvantages are there to using a dedicated antenna on the transom for an AIS transponder verses using a splitter and masthead antenna? The boat will be used for coastal cruising and short offshore races. Obviously the transmission and reception range will be less, that's not such a big deal unless you are mid ocean. There are no runners or anything else that could catch on the antenna.

    What are you talking about? I can't find anything about it being cut. The official Aus Lamb channel (from which you have linked to) has the "what have I missed" ending. You are getting a bit to Trumped up making false claims.

    I saw the news article last night about the bird and my first thought that quarantine will go after it. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/jan/14/racing-pigeon-that-survived-13000km-journey-from-us-to-australia-now-faces-euthanasia

    Aussie/Kiwi ocean and club racers

    My $80k ocean and club racers thread vanished thread vanished when "Hoppy" got assassinated. Even though I haven't bought a boat yet, I'm sure a few boat buyers had visited the thread and got info about certain boats, including non SA people because it regularly showed up in google searches. So I will start the thread again, but more general with no budget (or electric toilet) constraints. I will also post about boats that had been mentioned in the thread $80k thread and since been sold, if I have any worthwhile info about them.

    Anna & McGowan are fucking idiots with no grasp of the real world. Dan has an understanding of the real world but unfortunately he denies that it exists and can't remember anyone telling him about it.

    what about abolishing zero alcohol beer. I don't see the point in it. Beer does not taste that good that you would want to drink it and miss out on the women looking better.

    Do you need to book the water cannons or does that come included with every protest booking?

    Do you realise that I was just playing with Bob, because I'm sure he posted it for a different reason. But it was a pleasure seeing that you wrote such an extensive reply. This place is like going fishing for carp and catching a trout.

    and your point is?????? If you are highlighting that Taiwanese people respect the rules for their and others own good and thus only requiring a light touch by the government? Then I have to agree.

    The Swedish Experiment

    The Swedish non-lockdown "herd immunity" approach to Covid-19 gets plenty of mentions in various threads, so maybe Sweden need a suppository of posts following their progress. Current death toll is 2192

    I used to do the 1800km in the late 80's. I treated the speed limit as optional, probably sitting on 140kmh. With the fuel stops and other necessary breaks, it was still 18 hours. Unless the Newell Hwy is a freeway now days, 20 -22 hrs has got to be the minimum.
