Smile Tahiti - New Zealand

Hi there,

anyone who is at the moment in Tahiti or will be there this cruising season and is planning to sail to New Zealand and who wants a well experienced and established contact in Kiwiland (as a mail address, information source, general assistance after arrival, re: mooring, marina berth, anchorage and other inquiries on South Pacific sailing etc. ) please send your questions to me. All I would like to ask you in return is to transport 4 cans of anti fouling paint from Tahiti to NZ.

Re: Tahiti - New Zealand

Maybe your favorite paint contains Irgarol?

Re: Tahiti - New Zealand

At $600 US/gal Islands 44 is not worth the risk. Alloy boat in the bay with 2 month old TBT is growing barnacles as well as anything else.
