  1. Its looking as though the only possibility there is some Aussies but everyone else is most likely to be watching on international media. Probably the best outcome is that Team NZ retain the cup and rehost again in a relatively short period ie 2 years -hopefully by then the shambolic state of affairs that is currently downtown Auckland may not be so embarrassing!
  2. I love his writing style and the way he deals with everything thrown at him...a great read
  3. to replace like with like but am open for options
  4. Advertised once before with no luck but hopefully something may come up - looking for ideally 2 units but happy to take 1 if available
  5. Just as well I am going to Whangarei for my next haul out which is shortly by the sounds of it !
  6. Would be making life a bit difficult on some of the town hardstands at the moment - assume they are still waterblasting ?
  7. Once we have a programme will let you know (bugger this covid !)..... happy to try and cordinate transport at this end etc....
  8. Looking as though we may have a fleet of up to 20 boats on Waiheke shortly with regular racing planned
  9. It must vary between Insurance companies - I have my boat on a mooring now and it was no different in premium or policy over being in the Marina which I verified before putting it on one
  10. I have an Aprilla 125 cc 4 stroke scooter (retro style) I bought when I moved to Waiheke - must say it is brilliant at getting around - bring it over to Auck and is so nifty through traffic and will sit on 100 km/hr on the motorway plus being 4 stroke v economical. Been many a time when if I had been in a car or even a big bike I probably wouldnt have made it out to HMB Sealink in peak hour traffic in time. Plus with the case at the back plus being able to put a bag between your feet it is surprising what you can carry!
  11. Thats very sad - Norsand are very thorough on safety and am sure would have been devastated at this event
  12. I did a dive trip up there quite a few years ago which included diving for coins from the Elingamite in 40M which we did recover some (plus a couple of minor souvenirs -virtually nothing left of the wreck now)-generally the diving is challenging with some big rips -one needs to have a good boatman and safety gear and plan carefully but some good diving. Only place I have seen hapuka in 15m !
  13. The screws besides being a source of leaks also are stress points when the hull flexes and will often end up starting cracks in the acrylic -if you have a good bed of sealant there is no need for the screws although a couple to keep the window in place and lined up while the sealant cures can be a good idea - screws to be removed in and filled in after .
  14. definitely a bit of ambiguity in those CG statements - as to their roles in transporting medical emergencies from the Island - as the Island have their own Coastguard volunteer set up and failing Westpac not being available it makes sense to utilise the local CG setup in Matiatia to get any urgent cases to Auck .
  15. Doesn’t specifically mention the nature of the evacuations - just medical which may not be covid related whereas MH ‘s source did mention they were covid related
