  1. I've got an Electro Scan, and have just re-installed it after giving it a full overhaul (new electrodes and motors). I considered going to a composting (the wife voted that down) or holding tank but decided to re-install the sanitation unit. The rules in NZ allow me to discharge waste treated properly with such a system unless I am within 500m of a marine farm (and a few other exceptions). I like the idea that the waste that is discharged is not polluting the water, and generally find that it's easy enough to run the motor up if I'm worried about current draw. I'm a fan of them...

    Quite a flotilla of boats accompanying her out - including Steinlager 2

    They've left the base and are taking it for a very gentle tow down the harbour. No mast - just look like they're getting a feel for things

    SitRep From Paris?

    I’m in Paris now and have been for the last week or so. We are staying in the 3rd and have not visited the 14th, but I can tell you that the Marais is definitely worth at least half a day wandering around. Fine grained street network, great eating and shopping. We were wandering about yesterday around the Notre Dame area and although the Yellow Jackets were kicking off in a few places around the city, all we saw were plenty more police for a few hours. It feels safe, and my god it is a fantastic city. Your daughter is very lucky to be spending some of her studies here MSS.
  12. Where in NZ are you based?

    That's a great shot of the town I grew up in - although I moved there a couple of decades after that picture. The water in the background is now a large marina and the whole area is now a marine service hub for Northern NZ
  14. Hope you all had a great time Suzie! Come back down for the Americas Cup...

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Yeah, I thought that was really cool. There was everything alongside them from tinnies to VIP wagons and it just felt like they were digging it, and sharing the love with whoever was out there. We hung with them for a few minutes before heading over to see Steinlager 2, then watched the dock in.
