  1. If his role is what you say it is,then why not make a base for himself in Wellington,does not set a good precedent to the rest of the country. Alright for Bridges then its alright for me??The whole exercise is not to tie up emergency services in the event of accident. No one intends to have an accident but it happens.
  2. Yet they allowed a lady to drive to Tauranga,as she was in her bubble gong to see her boyfriend who was in his bubble,surely when the 2 meet the bubble is broken??Meanwhile S.Bridges can drive Tauranga To wellington as head of a select committee with Winstones blessing.wrong thread I know,sorry.Just to re a firm the nuttiness going on as in KMs case.
  3. interesting. Appears yes to boating if normal residence but must remain in normal vicinity?? https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12322599 The Health Notice does not directly address the issue, but says that if a residence is mobile it should be kept "in the same general location". A spokesperson for the Ministry of Health told the Herald it was acceptable to stay aboard a boat if it was someone's permanent residence as long as it remained berthed.
  4. Had them on the cav 26,already fitted at purchase,useful?yes when single handed.same set up on spreaders and mast cleats,easily adjusted.,roll up head sail drop main,all tidy.ancher.no problem
  5. Take a trip up tamiki river there has been some dubious liveaboards,There have been a numbers of thefts by a certain vessel that resides in the river, doubt that would happen in a marina.Didnt say you need to be wealthy for a marina but you would have a better type of person thats all I meant.I know you a get a bad apple in every bunch.
  6. At least you would have a better class of live aboard on a marina due to fees rather than some tucked up rivers doing night raids.
  7. Sailing NZ the answer is really quite simple.Its not what you like or want its what your partner wants and feels comfortable on.. Made that mistake once,shopping alone.
  8. Tonights movie is a video."Master and commander" Monday will be "Hunt for red october.,also U51
  9. They Holden Crewmans and get them back to show room condition
  10. Just pirated 1917.well worth it.
  11. Can a country lock a vessel out even with this covid19 due being in peril??I remember talk of banning the south african entry in the whitebread years ago,the thought was could enter under being in peril.Luckly never eventuated,just accepted a normal vessel.
  12. Bless him alright,read his feedback on the 2 yachts he sold. Run a mile I would say.
  13. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/trailersailer/auction-2594078139.htm?rsqid=ff6e42becf1444bc957c466e2dccec6e-003
  14. If at Kawau,we use to take jerry cans up swansea bay(top of bon accord) go up the river at high tide and there is a little waterfall and fill the cans.More of a way to fill in time.Used drop the flounder net on way up.But you will be constrained by draft no doubt.
  15. I know,but that is just how he viewed anyone who owned a vessel or sails/fishes etc Plenty of Camper vans etc worth more.Hes a twat.On the other side was Eugenie Sage saying govt must value our recreational habits(supports).
  16. Is the Cup still planned to go ahead next year or pushed back??
  17. He also included in that statement,Mum/Dad with 10ft tinny.
  18. You just need to hope that "David Seymour"Act party has no influence in the council.Went to fishing Symposium a few yrs ago and the first thing that came out of his mouth was"You lot regardless of size of boat, you are all rich pricks so must pay". First time I have ever heard speak at a public event then he got up and left.
  19. So wrong there about Mcds,most stores are franchise owned,very few company stores,they were going to close dining in and have drive thru only,this was proposed before L4 came in to play.I deliver to them,They were deemed unessential,Aussie still have drive thrus open in some states.Its a risk though.All you need is some A hole to spit at server and its away Covid 19 that is. Mdcs head office is the landlord in most cases.The franchisee basically pays a % to head office and is responsible for the rest,wages equipment etc Mds is not about hamburgers unless you are the franchisee,they are the worlds largest real estate company,might want to watch the documentary sometime. been involved with them for almost 20yrs now.
  20. Bit of a drive but you will be the Firth of Thames quickly.KawaKawa bay boat ramp,pontoons,breakwater and staff to help to help tie up vessel and lend a hand to launch/retrieve. $20 for use of ramp.Well worth it.
  21. When you say new to sailing but go out on friends yacht,what is it?could you comfortably be able to motor in to a marina or pick up a mooring??these I feel is a starting place,being confident to get on /off mooring marina. Depending on experience you say Lotus maybe too slow? Hmm remember along with speed things happen quickly and on a fully crewed vessel you may get the feeling this easy. Before rushing in decided what you want it for and where and whats it going to cost too moor,then work out basic maintenance costs.Buying a vessel is the cheap part. Once you have decide on a vessel then you can look at prices,do not let the mid to top range put you off as everything is negotiable.Never know what ones position is and how quickly they need to sale. As pointed out by "FISH" sails most important then what motor vessel is powered by age and hours and are parts available. Wish I took my own advice years ago.

  24. Kahawai still us being sold to Aussie $1.70/$2.20 kg
  25. Reserves don't work it is a feel for thing.look at leigh.fish are moving out no food.they leave to spawn.Ban trawling swinging.who destroyed the kahawai schools for pet food?? Still going on.trawl net with its diamond mesh fish cannot escape as net tightens it goes like rope.no gaps.any small undersize are squashed and discarded longline only.good chance fish survive due to line not being done to long
