Kanani, I would have to say on behalf of all Cruisers Kiwi and othere we appreciate your efforts on our behalf, it was almost as iniquitous as the 20% tax that Rob Muldoon put on anyone building a yacht or caravan back in the 80's. You have to raed the cat 1 regs to see how the control thing creeps back in though. cheers, Steve.

That's really interesting! Do you happen to know if there is an adverse reaction of some sort by using a titanium thru hull on an aluminium hull?

Shouldn't be, if the clamp doesn't touch the hull.

Between the two, the aluminum would be the sacrificial metal. Just keep them from contacting each other.

Also the BoI now has reasonable services,
Haven't cruised up there for a few years. I was thinking about 1992. I bet it has gone ahead in leaps and bounds.

Orams sounds a lot smaller when it is called Orims

I don't think so. Sources?

The Akula is the latest (still old) Russian sub.
It is steel hulled.
The Sierra is titanium hulled.
Fourth generation (Akula follow-on) may be out there now. (03-05 estimated).
