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

    1995 a couple of tins of Jotun found there way out of the naval base and somehow got applied to my yacht,lasted 3 yrs in tamaki river no problem but next batch was useless,hempels was good but batch we used in 2015 useless,altex no 10 was good but now off the market. copper coat is the way to go but finding a decent applicator is the answer.
  6. Thinking of price,ply glue clothe expendables,might be cheaper to get a S/S tank built?

  9. LegaSea - More Fish In The Water UPDATE: MPI has advised LegaSea that the decision to change the crayfish bag limits in CRA2 not yet been ratified by Cabinet and the new rules will not be changing on April 1. We will be updated the moment this or any other change has been confirmed.
  10. Protect Aotea has won a court case to prevent dumping of toxic waste sludge into the waters around Great Barrier Island, in the Hauraki Gulf. They are now pushing for a policy that offers alternatives to at-sea dumping. In light of the latest State of the Gulf report, such a policy makes perfect sense and would benefit marine waters around all our coastline. http://ow.ly/AAvf50yxXdA
  11. Bath tub racing was popular back in the 60s from memory.Dad use to race them. Here is a modern version https://www.nzherald.co.nz/northern-advocate/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503448&objectid=11260612 There have been a couple on T/M 7 or 8 ft boat with 10/15hp .

  18. (A) best option?? Dear Stakeholders Fisheries New Zealand is seeking feedback on a whether to enable uncaught rock lobster commercial Annual Catch Entitlement (ACE) to be carried forward into the next fishing year (which begins 1 April 2020). Submissions are open until 12pm on 24 February 2020. Tell us what you think about the 3 options The 3 options that we are consulting on are: A. Retaining the status quo: Making no changes to the Act, and not enabling rock lobster ACE carry forward; or B. Enabling carry forward of up to 10% of the total rock lobster ACE, if uncaught by individual fishers; or C. In addition to option B, also enabling the one-off carry forward of all uncaught rock lobster ACE, beyond 10% Consultation document Whether to enable Annual Catch Entitlement carry forward for rock lobster [PDF, 1 MB] Reasons for this consultation The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus has led to the collapse of demand for live rock lobster in the Chinese market, during the Chinese New Year period. This is typically a period of high live rock lobster demand and high prices. China is the leading export market for live New Zealand rock lobster, accounting for 98% to 99% of all exports. It is uncertain how long low demand for Chinese exports will continue, or whether the industry will be able to find alternative markets before the end of the fishing year. For most other species managed within the Quota Management System, ACE holders are able to carry forward up to 10% of their individual total ACE holdings that may not have been caught by the end of the fishing year. However, for all rock lobster stocks no uncaught ACE can be carried forward under the current rules. There is an opportunity to provide relief to rock lobster fishers highly exposed to the unexpected market impacts of the Coronavirus outbreak, without creating sustainability risks, in conjunction with measures they can take themselves. Enabling ACE carry forward would allow for fishers to defer the catch of rock lobster to the next fishing year, when export markets for live rock lobster are likely to have improved. Making your submission Email your feedback on the consultation document by 12pm on 24 February 2020 to FMsubmissions@mpi.govt.nz In your submission, include: the title of the consultation document your name and title your organisation's name (if you are submitting on behalf of an organisation, and whether your submission represents the whole organisation or a section of it) your contact details (such as phone number, address, and email). While we prefer email, you can send your submission by post to: Inshore Fisheries Management Fisheries New Zealand PO Box 2526 Wellington 6140 New Zealand. We look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards FM Submissions Fisheries Management | Fisheries New Zealand – Tini a Tangaroa Charles Ferguson Tower | PO Box 2526 | Wellington | New Zealand
  19. Been in whangaruru a few times,lovely place,up towards the head of the harbour is a great pipi bed,went ashore to collect and met by an od lady asked what we were doing,told her and she said to early come up to the house for a cuppa,she explained the best way to collect,wait till tide starts coming in and they come up out of the sand and the walk ashore so need to dig,she was correct then she point down towards the DOC camp and said if you want gurnard thats the place to fish,correct again. Hope stopped at Mimiwhangata on the way out another DOC area well worth the ramble ashore. Working the shoreline towards Whangmumu is rewarding as well ,only real obstacle is danger rock
  20. https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2511018630 Will be a hard sell at $20k I think
  21. Bit like twin tanks on a truck.one always drops slightly more than the other.no idea why.
  22. The unofficial word is,They have been dumped because of bio security reasons.Awaiting confirmation.
  23. http://marlboroughoutboarddismantlers.co.nz/outboard_parts.html Try these guys,have brought parts an old mariner from them
  24. off my tank we had a bulb like on a outboard tank,it close enough so could pump with hand and bleed .old yanmar. Most motors have a lever on the pump for bleed purposes. Thinking if you installed an electric pump for bleeding then pump might need to run fulltime to keep diaphragm open to allow fuel to run?
  25. Kauri Pt waiheke is heading from Man O war towards Hooks there is a point that has a tree on it(not kauri). https://www.topomap.co.nz/NZTopoMap/nz8646/Kauri-Point-Waiheke
