How is it ok to go cruising? You have to stay where you are. If at home, your stuck there. Same at batch or boat. You have to stay where you are , in your bubble.

I fail to see why this is so hard to follow.

Exactly the point I’m trying to convey . Everyone has had their recreational activities curtailed , from bridge players to tigermoth enthusiasts and maybe we will see some of them on the news or in the media soon ...”.illegal bridge tournament uncovered at banes wokes and wankers warehouse in wairau valley “ for example

We arrived as 8 tracks were leaving. You have a couple of years extra life experience than me and harrytom ;)

Now listening to Pavlov's Dog, Pampered Menials album from 1975.

The higher the alert levels, the less rights you have. This is not some form of sinister Gvt control of the People however. It is about keeping the Public safe in a time of crises. You yourself might maintain safe minimum distances, but as already displayed by those in the far North, many simply disobey the Rules. They treat it as a joke. So the entire fight to control this outbreak falls over. The result could well affect you with the Gvt having to continue of the lockdown period. Of which I personally do not want, so we all have to just suck it up and grin and bare it.

Not only that if you get into difficulties will you send a mayday call, and others alert the authorities you would being putting their lives at risk not to mention should you fall overboard, head injuries from a massive Chinese jibe😀🍇.

Come on now Mr. Knot, you do have an interesting perspective - well, mostly 

But you need to be respectful and play nice 

For myself, I'd like you to be able to stick around for a while. 

(On lockdown here by the Sweetwater Seas, the Admiral and I have been watching a good bit of 

old US film "noir' on YouTube. Dark stuff, a lot of it) 

May you find peace, or peace find you - whichever comes first

Nope. If you are already out, living aboard, you are still supposed to stay there. As at this morning, I just called the maritime unit and asked.

You can go home ( if you have one) but then must stay there.  Otherwise you can not move except for safety, medical, or food.

your restrictions are tougher than ours, we'll just have to wait a month (or more?) to find out if yours have been more efficacious. 

Here by the Sweetwater Seas, for now all the yacht club facilities are closed; but the marine service folks are still allowed to splash 

boats, and we are still allowed to be out there. These rules are state-by-state in the US; and they can change at any time. 

Wheels et al make a good point about recreational boaters tying up rescue/first responder resources. 

Your attitude of "all in this together" will get you through it. 

Love ya to pieces
