Marina Fees During lock down

Recommended Posts

Westhaven is not locked down.  I was just down on my boat.  You probably got the same confused courtesy call I got a couple of days ago.  It went like, Hi, this is a courtesy call from Westhaven, have you checked your boat lately? No I said, is something wrong with it? No we just wondered if you had checked it? Has something happened to it? No, no, but we can check it if you want.  Thats okay, I can walk there in 5 minutes.  We really dont want people coming here they said.  Thats fine I said, I will check it myself.

Same response at Hobsonville even though I wore a mask and had squirty bottle of bleach.

Observing all isolating procedures

BTW,  bleach eats Cr card stripes/signature if you don't wipe straight off.😒

Live aboards looked suitably unamused.

Gavin Somers runs a fishing charter company in Auckland's Waitematā Harbour.

His business, Snapper Fishing Charters, started dwindling about a month before the lockdown was announced, and now it is on ice.

On top of this, Westhaven Marina, run by Auckland Council's Panuku Development, was still charging them nearly $1500 in rent a month and would not offer a rent holiday, he said.

Westhaven gates opened fine for me this arvo.

It was gobsmacking experiance, there were car parks available and I didn't have to dodge scooters/bikes with arrogant fuckers doing 50kph plus down the deck path thingy.
