  1. My bad...from the same article... Whangamatā police charged a 52-year-old woman on Tuesday afternoon with common assault in connection to the incident. She will appear in Thames District Court on February 18. Rant over.

  2. IB you seem to be conflating 2 issues. You can register a boat and you can import a boat. Two separate, independent processes. So, I could buy a boat in The Med. Register it in NZ. When I get back to NZ and want to keep my boat here, I will need to import it. Or, I could import a foreign registered yacht. Many have.

  3. For anything that has an electric motor......take the watts of the appliance and times it by 3x and that figure will be a good rule of thumb. Some smaller motors won't need that, but larger high load things will. A microwave certainly will. The 1500W sander is going to need the most to start it going. 3x150=4500W. That will give you the initial start up requirement. Then look at the Gen rating and any decent one should have an intermittent peak supply ability. If the VCleaner falls below that, it will start no problem. Some VCleaners softstart. Normally ones that have speed controll of some

  5. I think you'd find the law says no you're not. I guess its all a matter of degrees. If you are threatening me with deadly force and its a matter of survival due to the gravity of the threat - I must have the right to snot you first, but only enuff to make u desist or enable my rapid escape. If she had hit him & killed him (which is feasible - a mathematical genius may be able to predict the tip speed for us i spose:) she'd be up on a murder or man slaughter charge. And rightly so - imho.

  8. Fish I get your point and I would not dispute the guy acted in a dangerous manner, but her response is no less reprehensible. I am sure that his actions constitute 'assault' but honestly cannot believe her response did not. Given the choice, which of the two weapons on display would you have rather been on the end of? They both did something wrong and from that perspective alone surely applying the law evenly would be all I think is to be expected. Just to be clear - only imho. None of the participants are known to me.

  10. Thats piss poor really. Either they should both be penalised or neither of them. I could understand if the lady had to stop the guy boarding her boat and chose an oar to defend herself, but that she jumped off her boat and went after him, swinging and missing (? Maybe she did get him i dont know) is no less premeditated. The sad fact is that both of them, by their uncontrolled rage, have risked much. My belief is the cops should give them both a bloody good telling off & make them do community service of some nature, together, and be done with it.
