Yep, cleaning in the water is also meant to be forbidden.
I do it regularly.

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

You can't clean here, you can't clean there,

You must stand on one leg while cleaning

You mustn't use anything the harms marine fouling for marine anti-fouling

But I can't for the life of me work out where all these invasive species are coming from,

Nor how they're getting spread around the place.

Yeah well Environment Waikato are the Marine Gestapo. Wear lifejackets or else we'll jump out of the mangroves and zap you. Don't scrub your boat but don't go in their area if its dirty . They do nothing to help the situation that brought all this crap here in the first place. Their eye is only on the potential revenue stream for all marine misdemeanours. Local Govt. at its absolute worst. BTW its likely that ballast water in ships has something to do with imported lurgy but as an enforcement officer reported there is nothing Regional Councils can do about that. So boaties are next in the money chain
