    If they use that ad here in Aus it will be targeting a non existent audience. I don't believe we have that many people of colour here.
  2. G'day Mate,

    Did your boat used to be named California Kiwi?

      Hi Tony

      I understand the boat has always been named Oliver Sudden.  Original owner was a guy called Russell Green, now Legal Counsel to Emirates Team NZ.  

      It was the first of the Young 10/34s.  Believe it was the the plug for the what was the Young 99,.  The Young 99s were all glass boats made by Roger Land, slightly different Keel and Rudder by Richard Karn.    

      Not sure if Oliver Sudden left Auckland much during it's 35 years.  Has spent most of it's time in Westhaven/RNZYS, now based in Half Moon Bay / BBYC.

      The reason for asking is that there used to be a 99 or a 1034 in the Bay of Islands in the early mid 90's owned by a Californian bloke.  Spent loads of miles on Honeywell Y11 plug and another Y11 The Chairman both were based in Kerikeri Cruising Club.

      Keep up the good work

    opinions on mainsail trim

    Two good things already suggested and won't cost a thing; Remove the foot from the boom track and install a luff cunningham.

    I'm not sure why I check out this thread from time to time, but I do out of morbide curiosity and in my view it's fairly bloody close to our old mate Dougie Lord. Going on and on about the same shit , around and around. So Bottman look at Dougie and see yourself as a very close relation.

    Is there anybody left on the planet who hasn't seen Dougy's garden ornament photos? Over the past 10 or so years it must have been posted thousands of times. Doug please stop repeating the same endless things over and over.
  9. Re; Cost, I've heard from a very reliable source (close mate of T.G.) that $2.5 million is the money.

    Do you know why shopping trolleys were invented? - so women could learn to walk on their hind legs

    Bottman, What everyone is trying to explain to you is explained here. You need a Certificate of Survey if you intend to use the vessel for monetary gain.
