    Quoting dead links would be annoying but quoting the original post and fixing the links would be appreciated by many

    REO 770 starts production

    You have to respect a handicapping system that promotes last to first in one afternoon on the water

    Hardly... but if it makes you feel better Poorly behaved sports stars need to be called out when they think they are bigger than the rules that govern their game

    Shipping beach cat NZ --> Aussie

    That is similar to Victoria but it does require an appointment at the local office to collect the plate. The form may even be available online.

    A call to the Queensland vehicle registration office might be better than talking to the NZ trailer builder

    Shipping beach cat NZ --> Aussie

    The Magic 25 I sailed on came from New Zealand. The trailer needs to have a VIN to be registered in Australia. Without the VIN/Australian compliance it was not possible to move the trailer from the container to have it inspected for registration. Bit of a catch 22.... Until.... the skipper remembered that the boat and trailer had been built in Australia, so the trailer was built to Australian standards and had a VIN already. Problem solved As Crazy Horse suggested, you may need to investigate the trailer further

    Early March 2019 I think Talk to the skiff guys, the Aussie boats go to Auckland at some stage too

    If you sent your belongings and boat in a 20' container, then have a chat with the skiff guys at Akarana and see if you can slide your mast in their container when they come over for the JJ's. Maersk is also one of the NZ skiff sponsors Tornadoes are in Takapuna, there might even be a container heading to Brisbane afterwards.

    What cloth for a Code Zero Jib?

    Do you have two halyards that could be used for this sail? One for the sail, one for a "forestay" that the sail could be webbed to. With a sudden increase in breeze, release the halyard and the sail would be controlled by the "forestay" rather than falling in the water

    In the day 1 video... The split mainsheet doesn't seem right, the port tail seems tangled
