motorb 5 Posted November 7, 2022 Share Posted November 7, 2022 Hi Crew - New member here but have been sailing a little Tracker 7.7 since 2013. I've been on the Westhaven poles ever since buying her, but haven't been out once since the whole covid thing happened, and now with life getting back on track I've finally had to bite the bullet and reassess the cost of this! Rental rates have almost doubled since starting there while the service/value has been reduced and all maintenance long since halted (and there are abundantly clear signs that we're going to be kicked out before too much longer, however, that's a rant on it's own for another time....) SO, having never had to look at moorings beyond the boats occasionally washing up against the westhaven sea wall, what are good spots to look for available moorings in the Waitemata? I'm based out in West Auckland for now, so trying to balance the nightmare of driving to Bucklands beach against time spent motoring against tide and wind to moorings up near Hobsonville. I'm thinking Little Shoal Bay looks neat, as does Okahu but I'm not sure if these are too exposed? How does dinghy/tender storage work in these places? Is building a trailer and parking it with the rigging up at a boat ramp a possible option? Any thoughts, advice or sage wisdom out there? Thanks (7.7m LOA, 1.4m draft, about 2000kg unloaded) Quote Link to post Share on other sites
