    I had engine problems and solved it by disconnecting the hose the fan blows the air through at the motor well end. A huge amount of water came out. I then made sure no other water was stuck in the hose, and found there was a plastic bag stuck in there as well. Once hooked up the engine ran well again and the amount of air coming out the vent near the stern was huge. Worth checking that hose to make sure nothing is in there.

    Love Olympic triangular courses

    I like them, but doing the same course race after race is to say the least uninteresting. Mix it up a bit with some other courses chucked in. variety is the spice of life!

    the weddings off!

    a good correction, I feel sorry for the poor buggers that are having to put up with such a moron and his followers. Its not doing the reputation of the US any good.

    leader of the free world my arse, I didn't vote for him and neither did the rest of the free world. Americans voted for him., and no doubt the "leader of the free world " shit was dreamt up by some over inflated yank ego.He's the leader of the US and nowhere else.

  11. This should clarify it, comes from the UKs CPS unit web page, Knives and other offensive weapons: public interest factors There is a strong public interest in deterring the carrying and use of knives and other offensive weapons, (see the National Police Chiefs' Council Guidelines on the Investigation, Cautioning and Charging of Knife Crime Offences (2015)). Where the evidence discloses that the defendant has used a knife to cause injury / threaten violence / cause fear, or has carried a knife in a way which contravenes a possession offence, there will be a number of compelling public interest factors in favour of prosecution which should be accorded proper weight. These include the following: a conviction is likely to result in a significant sentence; a weapon was used or violence threatened during the commission of another offence; the offence is widespread in the area where it was committed; the offender was a ringleader; evidence that the offence was premeditated; there are grounds for believing the offence is likely to be repeated; prosecution would have a significant positive impact on maintaining community confidence; a culture of carrying weapons encourages violence and may lead to more serious criminal behaviour. Depending on the facts, there may also be other important public interest factors supporting prosecution, for example, the offence was committed in a school, prison, hospital or public house, or the defendant was motivated by hostility towards another individual or group. The Code for Crown Prosecutors makes clear that a prosecution will usually take place unless there are public interest factors tending against prosecution which outweigh those tending in favour (paragraph 4.8).

    Flying Tiger

    Help or advice please. Flying Tiger down here in NZ goes very well in the light air races and the boat has just won the Nelson Regatta, the majority of races were in light winds. When the wind picks up to about 15 knots we start struggling on handicap as the others in the fleet are coming into their own. So any one got any good tips on making the boat go better in the windier stuff? or can I just assume the handicap doesn't suit it on the windier days? The sails are good apart from the running kite which has had lots of surgery. Cheers

    have a had a look at the information I have, which is off a drawing by Perry showing the deck layout. It says all the halyards are 30.5m long which equals 100ft. Hpe that helps. May pay to add a couple of meters more to be on the safe side. My spin halyard is a bit short side with the kite in the hatch Hope that helps,
