  1. We've got one on Bad Kitty, as said, it heats the hot water cylinder, so it's not like a califont.

    But love it, and if you're doing it then I'd add a heater or two, makes the boat warm & dry in the wet or winter.

  2. Absolute ars*holes.

    Goff, POAL, the whole bunch of useless troughing pr*cks.

    Stated a couple of years ago that "we hear what you are saying" re filling in more harbour, then this.

    Hiding a wharf extension by calling it a dolphin, because lying is second nature to them.

    Or possibly first nature, not sure how that works.

  3. Yep got one on Bad Kitty, does the job well enough, no real downside that I can see. Better than a stand alone Iridium phone for everything except taking with you in the life raft!

  4. There is one on the hard at Weiti you can have for free if you take it away. Has a rig and a keel.

    Not sure of the details just now, but can get them fairly easily. It will be at the shorter end of your size range, but not far off I think.

    Thanks Fish, I'll reach out, I'll let you know if it happens & you can give me an address for the Mt Gay,

  5. Looking for a hull & deck, GRP/glass or similar preferred, 42-47 foot, production cruising boat or something similar.

    Can be very rough, doesn't need a keel, or rig.

    Won't be going back in the water, so it could be pretty knocked around.

    For a film project, what's out there?


  6. We had a win in the Council Chambers today YA HOO!!!!!!!


    But still only a skirmish, all beit a big and key one, in the bigger war.


    It's been a good day for Auckland marina users. Not just the berth users or the clubs in them but everyone who lives by them and uses them in any form, even the drunken hookers out there on U ;)


    Any chance of specifics?

  7. Notice to Mariners details the launch safety zone.

    It is usually about a 10 day window, but is only applied on the actual launch day, which can slide around a bit inside that 10 day window.

    Safety zone is different each launch, and Rocket Lab tries very hard to accomodate everyone’s needs on a launch day. While absolutely avoiding the potential to drop in excess of 10 tonnes of rocket fuel on you.

    Boating can take place in the safety zone on the day, you do need to contact Rocket Lab and advise your intentions. If I can work out how I’ll post the next launch cartoon.

    Re anchoring there, Mahia Beach itself looks somewhat ok, other than that I’d be fairly careful.

    More like a “awesome weather, let’s take a look at Mahia” than actually planning a stop during a passage.

    Think Mokes, not Fitzroy Harbour.
