  4. ^ looks like the dream didn't stand the light of daylight buyer must pick up from nelson???
  5. bought for $5 and intending to make its home a comune in nelson... A conditional contract was signed, and the deal was done. The harbourmaster was in touch soon after, saying Myers wasn’t legally allowed to depart Wellington without their approval of seaworthiness.
  6. can't help but think a few too many corners got cut somewhere along the line pretty lucky for that guy to survive in just a life jacket, guess it was because they were within range of a well funded helo + SAR doubt he'll be feeling too chipper about being the sole survivor

    American Magic

    American Magic’s second generation America’s Cup boat is on its way to Auckland. The 75-foot boat is being flown in a chartered cargo plane for its trip to New Zealand from the boatbuilding yard in Rhode Island on the east coast of the United States. The boat will be the one American Magic use for the Prada Cup challenger series. The boat’s swift arrival in Auckland again signals the precision of the syndicate that is backed by the powerful New York Yacht Club. American Magic’s Kiwi helmsman Dean Barker has hinted at big changes on their new boat, saying: “It definitely loo

  12. The Papua Defence Force’s Navy has intercepted what news media have described as a suspected Chinese pirate vessel and have detained eight crew members, one with gunshot wounds. At present, all crew members are being interrogated by PNG Customs officials with assistance from the Australian Federal Police. In 2017, the same vessel was intercepted in the Milne Bay waters, with cocaine also being seized from the vessel. https://eveningreport.nz/2020/08/26/drama-at-sea-png-navy-detains-8-alleged-pirates-1-wounded/
  13. He completed that voyage anyway, steering by the stars. And if it was possible to navigate without instruments by night, he reasoned, perhaps it was possible to do so by day. “By the time I got back to shore two and a half weeks later, I had figured out that daytime steering was no problem at all,” he said. “We would use the wind as a reference; we would use the waves as a reference.” doesn't sound very efficient during the day, but wasn't this pretty much how they believe oceania was navigated before 1500? but with the advantage of good charts
  14. on that The Sankei article also says the Chinese stated that Japan “is not entitled to demand” the fishing fleet cease its activities. If that part of the report is accurate, China is saying, “This is our territory…and from now we are going to prove it.” https://asiatimes.com/2020/08/china-japan-island-dispute-in-new-sharper-focus/?fbclid=IwAR2hw4j60KZAhur3GOm09MOHwnTOps4oN16awIwx3B82d61ignETEuDxEFc
