Saw this on Trademe and according to Q & A no special ticket to operate as it is a private vessel??surely that cannot be right?

If its not in SSM and all that, I can't see why you'd need a licence to drive it. Finding somewhere to park it and insurance without some sort of suitable qualifications would be more interesting. No bow thruster. Guess thats what tugs are used for in busy ports. 

 

So, ex "research vessel", Japanese.

 

What is that "research" the Japanese do every summer down Antartica way? Has low side and aft decks, suitable for towing whales from, and clear walkways from the bow to the stern for passing the harpoon lines back. Just take the gun off the bow and no-one would know the difference. Whales processed, sorry, I mean researched, on the mother ship so no blood and blubber on this one...

Interesting idea but I think unlikely, they tend to have much higher bow and taller bridge for spotting, pretty slow for a chaser too

I have long thought that those Japanese whalers are not to bright for seamen.
Just go down to the beach.
You could well be be fortunate enough to encounter a decent quantity of the born dead variety of the species which are easily accessed far less messy no pesky protesters and ready for immediate research.

But you need to taste it as part of the research

Big boat, would be awesome to own but the bills!!!! I met a couple that lived aboard that ex navy harbour patrol launch the Paea I think it was called. 80ft? Oregon planked, grey, very cool looking boat, the total expedition go anywhere machine but it would have been like living on the Harbour Bridge, start at one end with the painting and general maintenance and when you get to the other end go back to the beginning and start again. Cant quite remember the figures but from Hobsonville to Islington Bay was $120 in diesel.

Wasn't she the fairmile that worked out of the downtown wharves in Auckers in the 70's? As kids, we used to go out for the day fishing on her.

I though there was a tonnage limit for none qualified skippers? 500gt? Same as pilotage limit?

From memory the fairmile that operated as charter fishing vessel in early 70s was called "colville" skippered by "Len Selby"?? I believe she ended up in Tonga?

Thanks harry. Yep, that was her. Not very fast but then you didn't need to go miles out to catch fish. She ran a regular saturday fishing trip.
