    It depends on what your tolerance is to a slightly bumpy anchorage - forecast is light E at the moment swinging to SE overnight then fluctuating between E and SE until Wednesday afternoon when it normally will swing to S . With those conditions it is doeable - not 100% ideal -if you do decide to anchor there make sure your pick is well dug in. Looking out there at the moment there are a couple of boats and it is mild. SE actually works ok there - just tuck up into the Little Oneroa end.....
  2. My understanding is that a carbon filter will take out the chlorine in a shock dose but it will most likely end up needing to be replaced afterwards - small amounts are ok but not shock doses ....Tryiing to remember who told me that -was some marine outlet but can check on this....
  3. chlorine destroys carbon filters pretty quickly - I wouldnt recommend using anything v low concentrations otherwise factor in writing off your carbon filters as part of that process and replace
  4. Dont think Apartments are on the Agenda - from memory the other option besides keeping it as a hardstand was to convert it to a reserve /park

    The Landing at Okahu Bay has a doubtful future depending the outcome of a recent survey and Council decision making
  6. Yep - thats the one - he touched a few people's hearts -v sad that he passed away. I havent finished the full doco -intend to do that tonight
  7. This may be old news as it is old and I believe the guy (Alex) has since sadly passed away but just came across on you tube ' Chasing Bubbles - Documentary" sorry havent put the link but easy to search - the guy was so raw but totally infectious in his enthusiasm -I found it quite captivating - quite a long Doco....
  8. Yep = this is a development that is long overdue.... as for Fullers preferred model - Ha ! Who wouldnt want to operate the most profitable route in Auckland and not have to own or maintain the ferries
  9. Fullers would be better off investing in a ferry(ies) that had extra capacity rather than having to leave frustrated passengers still waiting while the scheduled ferry fully loaded pulls out meaning an hour wait to the next one during peak times. Let alone operating a service that recognises the need for extra sailings in peak times and not going to a winter timetable before peak weekends like Easter and school holidays
  10. Thats interesting because up to this point Toyota have had their head in the sand when it comes to EV's - they have gone the hybrid route saying they didnt believe in 100% electric - I hope yopu are right because if they dont get on the band wagon before long they will end up like Kodak
  11. could see the smoke from Waiheke..
  12. I am looking for a couple of ST 290s which are scarce as Hens teeth - if anyone has upgraded and got any to offload .....:)
  13. Just talked to someone who came in from the Barrier and they came across a 4x3 m section of the wreck out in the Gulf so be aware -there is debris floating around - keep an eye out -particularly launches travelling at speed. They notified Coastguard and the Harbourmaster
  14. Mizzen mast went - I believe to be someone's flagpole -main mast was still in place up until the blow
  15. The cost is in the clean up -debris scattered let alone a rig , keel and motor still to be recovered
