    Hi Ian,

    We had a ripper 2 blade folding prop (from a modified Young 88) in almost mint condition. We sold it, a couple of weeks ago, to Alf Doedens, for his Farr 37 - Quality Equipment (the old NorTas). Sorry cobber.

    The only one we have left now is a old, rather slogged-out old Seahawk 2-blade feathering prop. It is 1" shaft, but it is, frankly, pretty tired. If you need a prop a.s.a.p. in order to be able to sail, you are welcome to it, but I certainly wouldn't see it as any sort of long-term solution.

    Hey Patrick - did you say you had a folding prop 1" shaft fit for sale??

    Hi Patrick - nice photo you posted but it seems to be tracking somewhat better than I'd imagine at the moment!!

    Hi Patrick
    36 hours it took us!! 45 knots + behind us after dark around Tasman Island - bit nasty - most of the rest was 20 - 30 knots - behind us all the way - even around the NE corner! The weather for the race looks as if it will be gentler! Best wishes for the race.

    G'day Ian,

    Insatiable is currently sitting snugly in a berth on the floating section of the Beauty Point marina! We sneaked off under cover of darkness on Friday evening and arrived at dawn on Monday morning... a relatively undemanding delivery apart from Banks Straight, with 25knots on the nose, westerly swell, westerly sea and easterly current... naaaasty... but that aside, mostly pretty pleasant.... no breakages (except the dunny seat), no seasickness, although we did find a couple of spots where water came in that we didn't previously know about!

    Anyway, I hope that your delivery is equally as uneventful and pleasant as ours.
    Good luck and sail safe.

    G'day Patrick - When are you folk starting your delivery? We hope to head out on Blue Chip about 5.00pm friday.

    Well Patrick - once again you managed to pick the shifts, adjust the sails with finesse and steer with precision to a great result while we did the opposite! Mind you - the grand old Lady Luck might have played a part! :-)
    You were looking close to an outright for a while!!
    What a race! Well done!
