On a day like this there would be at least 300 vessels out over the various bars, and if Raglan has a fishing competition on, that easily doubles. One of the things I note, is that the number of calls for assistance that Coastguard gets on the West Coast are far fewer than on the East Coast. I think because the bar crossings are known to be dangerous, the Westies take better care of their craft, very few seem to run out of fuel etc compared to the EAst, which is more benign. That said, when it does go wrong on the West COast ........ Do insurance companies not cover all these vessels? Having a yacht I wouldn't know, but I find it hard to believe that they are all uninsured? I'm sure there will be companies covering west coast boats, just not the one that Baileys (Originally a broker that was Yacht friendly, maybe still is? ) have me insured with.
