    He had just walked through the boat park at a kids dinghy regatta, a complete douche!

    Some nutter shooting up Mosques in NZ

    Sobering statistics PW Watching how this has unfolded over recent days, how fortunate is NZ to have the leader they have at this sad time.

    Yep, I will letRobert Green know about this. Robert is the surviving son of the late Bob Green who had Tamboo built. Bob was Melbourne’s IOR Measurer back in the day. There’s a half model of Tamboo on the model wall at Sandringham Y C. Lydia, now that you have completed such a great resto on Defiance, you would be the ideal operator to take on another timber S&S refit

    Ulladulla on December 28, 2018. Not where we wanted to be at the time. F*&^ing Sunfish!

    Back row just off the bow of the white motor boat. Impeccable in Hobart Jan 1 1982 after her first Hobart?

    Oh yes, the infamous size 11 chunder in a size 9 sea boot can never be unseen.

    Not so fond memories of NZ made Dorlon wet weather gear, in particular an orange long smock top with hood and a velcro neck closure but no zips. It certainly didn't leak from the outside in but would rival Jenny Craig as a sure-fire weight loss program - turned energy into sweat on even the coldest of days. They had a famous advertising slogan - I think it was Peter Blake in their ads in which he claimed to have sailed around the world wearing the stuff "27,000 miles without a leak!"
  12. I have no doubt there would be strange expressions, largely because there has not been a toilet up there since the guys bought the boat about 12 years ago!
  13. Sporty is a whole different level of luxury Hoppy.
  14. Yeah, very different stability requirements for a Cat 2 race in 1997. The Bull 9000 is physically capable of being raced offshore given he right crew experience and skill but almost certainly no longer compliant with current offshore stability requirements. Apart from which, Hoppy is way too tall to be comfortable in something like that. One day Hoppy.... we live in hope.
  15. Hahaha, if they only knew 'Wal. Best laugh on here for ages.
