if + when you do get a mooring

 

putting a mask on and pulling yourself down

 

isn't a bad regular check to make over the summer months

Thanks. Yes will certainly be doing that. Water is over 10M deep so might not make it all the way :-)

that seems a hell of a deep for a little boat

 

but your renting it right?

 

if you're trying to put up 10m of heavy top chain put there for a 60' boat

 

it will be a struggle

 

any reason you chose to rent that mooring?

the mooring between the ferry base and karaka,are they not meant to be inspected 2 yearly due to the amount of river traffic?i looked at one a couple of years ago and that was my insurance company requirement so settled for panmure.extra 1/2hr was no biggie now becoming a pain with the dry stack open and the 5knts ignored by most.

Thanks all for your help and comments. I need to close off this forum now as the mooring is rented. The owner is dealing with the council over the issue. I should really have approached him first and probably got a bit carried away with my post however have always got good help from crew.org in the past hence going here first. Cheers Ian.
