  1. heard a bit of that too, nz's first chartered master mariner, also doctorate in some aspect of maritime law link to radio story here https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/afternoons/audio/2018754421/first-new-zealander-to-become-a-chartered-master-mariner https://hcmm.org.uk/chartership/
  2. are we talking the water pipe from the waikato here or the power-lines from the south island?
  3. the predict wind tracker in 'map' mode seems to out by about 200mt north to watch the horror, switch it to 'satellite', move the time slider at the bottom so the timer at the top say 18.36, zoom in to NW tip of waiheke, then press play https://forecast.predictwind.com/tracking/race/ssanz and waka were cutting it fine at 8pm
  4. it does appear that part of the deal to get more waikato water for drinking, is that auckland start recycling some of its wastewater for drinking but some "customary"? issues will have to be worked through first https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12345648
  5. apparently working on the stormwater outfall, the pumping station also under construction at pt.erin video https://youtu.be/WqTU4vKFPqQ?t=67 a problem many years old and taking many years to rectify with the central interceptor https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11784545

    Elliphunk sunk

    all ok on the 1 tack could do most of the coastal seriously though good to see her not a tangled mess of spars and kindling getting the sails down, with the luxury of time, seems excellent advice for any sinking/capsizing

    Elliphunk sunk

    looks remarkably intact
  8. "We placed one of them effectively inside the main organisation literally just outside my office in with some guys - obviously all our guys we trust, but [who] knew what the game was. "Then once when I was informed effectively out of Europe, the game was up at that stage." Dalton would not divulge exactly who those alleged spies were and said they were not 100 per cent sure about what information those involved got. "But what I do know is that I think the game was up quicker than they expected simply because information that I knew could only come from one source was fed back to me from Europe." https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=12344067
  9. something very odd here with contracts being terminated due to paid? leaking of information https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/americas-cup/121979008/americas-cup-team-nz-axes-contractor-after-secrets-allegedly-leaked

    She's Back...

    last time i saw her playing with a chew toy (blue) it had been torn off the galvanised bolts on a westhaven dock do the experts have any suggestions?
  11. surely the point of a floating; desalination plant, hospital, helipad is for when helicopter dropping $5 notes is pointless because there's nothing to spend them on https://duckduckgo.com/?q=cyclone+damage+pacific&atb=v177-1&iax=images&ia=images
  12. All going to plan American Magic hope to be sailing by the third week in July, and that will be the first time New Zealand fans see two AC75's on the same stretch of water. The other two Challengers, INEOS Team UK and Luna Rossa are expected to be sailing in Auckland in early September and the third week in October respectively. Rumours persist that America's Cup regatta dates and race schedule will be compressed and/or the entire program shifted into late January, February and further into March or beyond. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/premium/news/article.cfm?c_id=1504669&objectid=12343557
