Icky wether, you ready?


Recommended Posts

Icky weather for the wider Akl region over Sat night/Sunday. From the north so a little unusual direction.

Is the boat you may not have seen for 5-6 weeks OK to go thru that?

Especially if you are in Bayswater as Northerly is the direction that can make that a very lively place to be.

 

One good thing is mid northland will also get most of it including what looks like some water into the dams, Ya Hoo!!!

Yep, went out to check on the boat today and give the mooring a very thorough inspection (and scrub). THen scrubbed all the bird sh1t off the decks 😒

Then gave the engines a run in reverse which further tested the mooring.

So Calm I could even drop and flake the Genoa myself.

Beautiful day for it!

Just been down to check my dock lines this arvo. Sounds like the Coromandel is in for a bit of a hammering tonight. Civil defence are warning of probable power outages and flooding.

The Kopu to Hikuai road is already closed so if you want to get out of Whitianga, you will have to go up around the top through Coromandel.

Just went down and checked everything. Doubled up my stern lines and chucked an extra on yours too, just loose, just in case, that port stern has a bit of load on it

Flat as at admin tho.

Thats probly a good thing.

Anybody know where i could find that info for Tauranga? More interested in the bouys info than in the harbour for obvious reasons.

Thanks for that. Must have been a bit fresh at your place last night. Was blowing pretty hard at our place and lots of rain.
