Yes thanks, that's the stuff, Giardia.

When I first heard of it I thought they were talking about the Italian police but couldn't work out what cops from the other side of the world would be doing in a stream by Kaikohe :)

... Looking for covid19?..  or bypassing the traffic in the main Street😁😁😁🤙

Apparently the Police are doing the rounds at Kawau, politely but firmly telling boaties no moving anchorage, no sailing, no going ashore, no paddle-boarding and even no swimming. They're also taking a log of which boats are where. Despite the lovely weather, locking down at home still like the better option to me (especially as I've needed 2x unexpected emergency dental visits this week)!

Yes I am in touch with one or two at Kawau they are sitting tight except for going out to empty holding tank, plenty of tucker not sure about water though,

i can't for the life of me understand why police are telling individuals not to swim on the east coast as we are further apart than when walking past each other and if it is a part of our daily routine prior to all of this and we are walking to the beach on our own - just easy targets I guess the old grey haired swimmers.

I heard a couple of launches turned up at Pakatoa and went ashore for a walk. They were asked to leave, private island etc. A bit of a barney and the police were called. Both launches were fined, not sure for what exactly.

Almost certainly they were fined for going for a walk outside their local area. If they live aboard their local area is their deck. If they live on land it’s their neighbourhood. And under the SOE the Police have the powers to do this (and more). I expect we’ll hear of more cases like this.

Dont panic guys.

You may not at any time walk on private property without permission. I find a fine difficult to believe. 

Currently,  yes, the police are taking photos, lat long, and details of cruisers who are out. You are allowed to go home, if you have one. You can go out, empty tanks etc. If you have to move due to weather, or are going home, you must do a TR. You can go ashore for the same reasons as someone in a house goes out - food, medical, exercise. 

Contrary to above, you may walk ashore, on public land, but must obey the same rules as everyone else - 2m gap, no dangerous sports etc. For the duration of the lockdown, your local area is where you are anchored. 

At Kawau,  the KBC is open Thursdays for fuel and water. Groceries are available, speak to Kawau Civil defense. They will arrange to get them from Walkworth supermarket,  delivery by water taxi.

This is from the police today.

IT i just posted, it ended up in page 1 and entirely out of context to posts surrounding it so I deleted. 

Maybe just as well but could be a glitch 4 u to investigate

police state, seriously its jobs for the boys..... if youve been on a boat a week or more you have more risk from landlubbers. Love it how all these little hitlers have suddenly appeared in the new smartphone 5g stasi environment
