  1. No I think the people that do this are too stupid to make good decisions. But throw them in the slammer for a month, at least it sends a message, and may discourage the occasional slightly smarter muppet from the wrong decision. If a few farmers had been penalised appropriately it may have encouraged better compliance. And before anyone starts with the whole bleeding heart garbage just save it. Jail may not cure criminals, but it certainly stops criminals visiting harm on decent citizens while the ar#*holes are locked up. And until our Government, whatever flavor, starts prioritizing education, healthcare, education, breaking the cycle of uneducated trailer trash & domestic violence, education etc. etc. jails should stay populated.
  2. Yep all of that Fish, but the quarantine, and the quality of it, is crucial. We're only one a#*ehole away from being like Melbourne, and after going thru the pain I'd hate to go back to a lockdown. It would be terminal for much of NZ's small business, and a fair chunk of medium to big business I suspect. Any quarantine jumpers, including the special sort of dumb that broke into one of Rotorua's quarantine hotels, should spend a month in jail. Just to drive home to some of our IQ challenged just how big a deal this is.
  3. But I do believe that we could easily manage quarantine, as long as it's on a cost recovery basis. As others have said, NZ is a very desirable destination currently.
  4. Numbers of film crew coming in is public record, no-one needs any special info to access it. Film crew are being allowed in because 350 people coming in allows 1 billion + in work to continue. It's a net gain to NZ. Nothing more sinister than that.

    Yammy 15

    Hard to go past a yammy 15 2 stroke. The small 4 strokes are just too heavy for what they do. But yes the Tohatsu 18 is a great little outboard also, same weight as a 15 but 20% more power!
  6. Swisstools for allen & torx, out of the UK usually. Superb, and pretty colours even!
  7. Set at -15 on Bad Kitty from memory
  8. I'm very similar, metvuw then PredictWind
  9. I disagree with this entirely. Yet again the whole of a great community suffers because of an individual or small vocal minority pushing an out of balance viewpoint.
  10. Dolphin drysuits
  11. Yep what he said. Maybe I'm getting sensitive in my old age but I agree, 1 person is killing Crew.org It's sad.
  12. I've got 70 mtrs of 10 mm you can have very soon, as soon as Knot Me unpacks some stainless. Unless he gets sin binned again soon & that affects his delivery schedule?

    Old Flares

    Coastguard used to take them, not sure anymore?
  14. Hiya Wave, thanks for sharing, pretty interesting times to be cruising, must be a lot of confused cruisers up there wondering where they're going next. I guess y'all just sitting there & seeing what borders open up? Good luck, and enjoy the sunshine!
  15. PM me a phone number if you want a chat,
  16. Agree, Designers rarely supervise Construction. Look at all those Given powercats, built by Silver Tiger! Great design, built by gib stopping labourers! One of NZ boatbuilding's great horror stories.
  17. I guess it depends on a lot of variables, and your appetite for junk. We only use 2 surveyors, 1 who's pretty tough, and the 2nd is even more discerning. We have to buy boats for various projects, some very demanding, some pretty straightforward. But I'd rather have someone with a critical eye than a Surveyor with low standards. Even being tough on things we still get a nasty surprise now & then. And when you're caught out in 50 knots one day with a hard day upwind getting the sh*t kicked out of you, do you really want to be wondering about your boat? They rarely fall apart, but ………………………….
  18. We use something like this on Bad Kitty, works well & keeps the length of the 2:1 down. Not sure which flavour ours is, refer to Bart at NZ Rigging, came from him.
  19. This is particularly relevant. Are we going to exist in our own bubble of 4.? million, with incredibly difficult travel both in & out of NZ, and do almost no business with the rest of the world? While I don't pretend to have the answers to how we should do this, the future looks pretty bleak for our economy?
  20. Mmm, no pretty sure there's a lot of people that feel like that. 2 here anyway.
