Lots? I see about 6 or 7 between Auckland, GB, coromandel and Whangarei. Pleasure vessels that is. Although I’ll admit many have turned off their AIS ...

Yeah true that ... I saw one of the more popular day charter boats go in to marsden cove last night . No punters onboard but no AIS either so probably a sneaky trip to the chicks

I vote you set up a live cam from your place...

We've been parked in Mahurangi, there's a little bit of coming and going visible.  Wifey got back last Friday and we came directly to the boat.  Quite a few calls from Police, texts for tracking and this morning we had a visit - well we could see each other with binos.  All the Police we have spoken with have been a credit to their force and I have no complaints whatsoever.

AIS switched off / in stealth mode is an admission of guilt that people know what they’re doing is wrong.

Ha, you are correct I'm sure, although if I'm sitting at anchor or in the marina I turn mine off (we are on board at anchor now with AIS off).  If you look at any boatyards with boats out of the water there are usually quite a few with AIS broadcasting, which seems a bit pointless to me.

Sounds like an amazing place to watch the world go by! You may have seen me a couple of weeks back heading south behind the Hen & Chicks

There are at least 6 posters in this thread that come across VERY much like they will not be happy until those who displease them are made to sew yellow stars on their wet jacket.

It is very sad to see that after 2-3 weeks so many still have no understanding if what the govt needs to happen.

In the meantime post a pic of this view. It sounds magnificent, and I can just image what it was like today!
