So, now Maritime NZ requires that all vessels must have the required ratio of crew with an Advanced Sea Survival qualification (30% of crew or at least two crew members) and a Procedures Manual.

The way they talk about it, it was standard for racing but new for recreational yachts. I suppose if they do end up dropping the registration fees then the money saved will be spent on more courses. Is there a template for the manual that people have used or has everybody just done it from scratch?

There is a template of sorts in the YNZ Safety Regulations of Sailing.  I downloaded a free copy some time ago, looking for it now seems they want $23.  To help keep you safe.  And their lavish lifestyle paid for.  Grrr.

Here's an Aussie template for one - https://www.google.c...cHYfCrHeUNPSLwj

 

Personally I think they are fantastic as they remove the need to have any knowledge of your boat, seamanship skills or common sense. Not unlike GPS and EPIRBS, there are too many cases of those doing the same thing.

Now that is just blatant trolling.

Yeap I agree. It certainly could seem that way but only for those with insufficient knowledge of their tools and how to use them correctly/safely.

 

The rest of us do not need to read what we already know.

Are you saying you've worked out how to use all the features on your new lectonics you've installed then?

There was a post a while back where you seemed surprised at some of the capability your gear had, that you weren't aware of.

Nope and I doubt I ever will, I doubt anyone ever will.

 

Lectronics are only aids for lazy people, they are not mission critical. The requirement to have a procedure manual is due to people who think they are.
