I spent some time at Riverside Drive Marina, Whangarei when I had my previous boat a couple years ago, and I still must be on their mailing list.

Received the interesting email today as per below:

 

"Good Afternoon,

 

By now most of you will be aware of the new NRC marine bio-security charge to all mooring licensees (includes marina berths, swing moorings & pile moorings). The invoices for this charge have recently be sent out.

 

Northland marinas (Whangaroa, Kerikeri, Bay of Islands, Whangarei & Riverside) are disputing this NRC marine bio-security charge.

 

The marinas are currently seeking legal assessment of the marine bio-security charge & will not pay these until it has been obtained.

 

The Navigation Safety Bylaw charges are not being disputed by the marinas & will be paid without delay.

 

If you have any questions, please give me a call."

Well was having a talk to the marina manger yesterday afternoon and apparently they are not allowed to dive on the boats at the moment. It is against OSH regulations as there has been two sightings of a leopard sea in Whangarei Harbour.....

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

OSH is over the top stupid. There has to be a huge number of other dangers worse than a Leopard Seal somewhere in the Harbour. :roll:

Hmmmmm....... I wonder if that is Happy Teeth.

 

One was found shot on Ruakaka beach and some reckoned it was her.

According to this it's happy teeth.
At the bottom of the article is an 0800 number for reporting sightings.

Now, since we've established the NRC dive teams can't inspect poor law abiding yatchies for fan worm when a leopard seal is about, if we could just arrange for a few sightings to be reported to 0800 LEOPARD for the Jan / Feb period, that would be great :-)

Maybe a radio controlled one, deployed when the NRC fan worm inspection dive team are spotted approaching.
