  1. ....."because the Marine Reserves we have are not large enough......" Which is also what was said on page 2 of this thread - the MRs need to be of a certain size to avoid the edge effect (people fishing on the edge). How many more reports does the government need saying the same thing? At least the Rahui's just get on with it - no beauacracy.

  2. What a very odd take on things. It reminds me of when I was contracting to DoC. When the old bushman, ex cullers etc, were in senior management things got done. They understood the real world implications of their decisions. I then watched as uni kids slowly took over the management roles and work output became measured in emails sent. No one could go in the bush anymore without someone holding their hand and having to comply with rediculous, impractical H&S bullshit. Practical productivity died. Bloody shame.

  3. Aarky, you do seem to spend a lot of time defending your fellow bureaucrats. It is equally laughable, but sadly true, that you are defending people who have little or no knowledge in the fields they are making decisions, and this lack is reflected in the poor performance of the departments. This is typical of the takeover by professional administrators who just rotate between departments and build ever increasing empires.

  7. Was certainly a pretty hard day on the water with light and shifty winds, big tide and a few restarts. We (Tamatea) lead around the first 5 marks but then us and Orion got caught out playing with each other and let the Green boat (cant remember its name) through on the other side of the harbour. The 3 of us were quite close for most of the race but then the long run down the harbour agaisnt the tide with 5 kts of breeze brought the other boats into the game and Limited edition managed to sneak through the other side of the harbour and take the lead only to loose it on the last mark rounding b

  12. It was a joke Fish. If you boat long enough you will help people out for sure. The Tobago Cays one was interesting however as all the Kiwis and Ozzies yachties rushed to help, and, no one else. They just watched.
