About Me

We are longtime Russell residents. Always had classic wooden boats, got tired of the maintenance and went to the Dark Side buying a Raven 31. She was called The Stoned Crow.  Now called T.S.Crow.  We wonder why we didn't go this way sooner.

We have fitted a full length permanent bimini, moved the traveller forward onto the coach roof, raised the mast step 150mm. I am 6'4'' and there is no possibility of the boom conecting to my head anymore. It is not the prettiest addition but we love it for the protection from the sun and of my head.

Kay and I have been sailing in the Hauraki Gulf for about 35 years now.  Our first keeler was a Raven 26, called 'Miracle".  We then moved up to our Raven 31, "Largesse" which was built to charter specifications and launched in 1987.  She has been in charter with CharterLink for many years but has been "liberated" from the charter fleet since May 2013.

Health issues have restricted my sailing this past season but my daughter, Ruth and granddaughter, Emily are keen to keep Largesse in the water -s we will see how the coming season goes.

I sing with a shanty & sea song group called "The Maritime Crew" and we have a regular spot at the Maritime Museum in the viaduct on the first Sunday of ther month.

About Me

Been sailing for over 30 years, currently in-between boats, previously owned a number of boats ranging from a Tracker up to a Farr 1020 (shared ownership).

Never owned or sailed on a Raven however over the next couple of years could look at purchasing one, most proberbly a 26.

Know my way around boats (yachts especially) quite well, if anybody needs assistance on anything drop us a line and you never know your luck, I might be able to assist. Last project I was invloved with on a yacht was completely stripping down and overhauling a Volvo Penta 2002 motor.

Will get on to the photos anon, but we (Christine & Guy) own Frith, a 26. We are casual sailors, who from time to time take Frith out to go places. We live in Dunedin and would like to hear from anyone in the ROA that gets this far S. We have a cruising, rather than racing orientation. So it is that we appreciate the easy sea motion of the R 26. We brought Frith back from the Marlborough Sounds and are planning to take her to Stewart Island in the not too distant future (well, that's the plan anyway).We invite discussion from any of the ROA membership. Cheers - Guy

About Me
We have bought (2016) a Raven 31 after 13 happy years with a Gladden 29 yacht. Both former secondary teachers, we retired many years ago, so this yacht will probably be our last. We have been sailing all our lives. We have spent the last few months upgrading the boat - new forward hatch, holding tank, pressure water, electric refrigeration, extra handholds, curtains, cockpit squabs etc. I have avoided paying labour costs - only the glass windows have been professionally done.
