  1. Is it just me, but in modern society I have the perception that everything good and free eventually will either (if it hasn't already) be banned or a fee be required. Sailboat cruising has not and will not be spared....I expect licenses required to use your boat (sail or stinkpot) within 10 years, irrespective whom is in power

  2. Given the rotting shitters, floating and beached around that area I think the locals have their focus in the wrong place.

  3. Navionics has tide flow arrows around north cape area. Probably other programs like open cpn as well. Worth looking into.

  4. Sorry to disappoint you but they will be dredging. It's a shallow bay and the Waiheke set don't do little people boats so they need depth. So you submitted against the new ones the rich lister on the point is trying to put in at Rakino so he can increase the price of his subdivison? While you should have, weight of numbers do count occasionally, we have submitted and will be attending the hearings on your behalf.

  5. Just a matter of population pressure. Florida is very close to a ban on anchoring.

  6. Simply not realistic to put large commercial / construction projects on hold for 3 years. And what is that likely to achieve? Linking the blatant mismanagement of fisheries to blocking already consented marinas? Further, this marina is not constructing any breakwaters, not shifting any spoil etc. It is an entirely floating marina. So I'm not sure where you are going to get all of this sediment and heavy metal from that is going to smoother everything? This same emotive response comes from a lot of people about land development as well. There is a formal planning process, everyone pay

  7. Ask them. Often we have no idea about pricing comparisons and work on what's suggested or we're told 'is about there and you'll be OK'. Also if the master Sth Pac agent, as too many are, is in Aussie they are known to take the piss when pricing to NZ. We had a case so I got up the Aussies who said f*ck off so I went direct to the manufacturer and had a bleat. In the bleat I was told, and this is very common, 'We have a NZ distributor', when asked where they say 'Sydney'. Then they hear me say, if they are a US manufacturer, "You Canadians are f**king sh*t at geography, why's that?". The reply

  8. I was less impressed by their use of presold. There is no such word. It's either sold or it isn't.

  9. It's usually undone by a Hammer and punch or chisel applied to the side of the nut. You can see where someone has had a go in the past.
