  1. Do they stipulate the temperature setting of the beer fridge and brand of rum as well? ๐Ÿคจ
  2. Update. Looks like a bit of sense will be applied and public moorings may be made available. https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/514752/aotea-great-barrier-island-businesses-welcome-new-moorings-for-boaties-hit-by-caulerpa-ban
  3. enjineer, surely? Now I know that, I'll type slowly so you can follow... ๐Ÿ˜†
  4. Just furl the jib and it will be accessable, surely ๐Ÿ˜ For my sins I once managed a tertiary provider of training to the plumbing and gas industry. The board was, to put it succinctly, a collection of geriatric iliterates with a fondness for gin and ensuring the continued protected status of thier businesses. It may have changed, but I see no evidence.
  5. Loads of data, no information. Sounds like my workplace
  6. drives activity in the medical industry. And divorce lawyers.
  7. no, thats the impact across the entire economy. It includes labour, power companies, food sales, taxis, supermarkets, hookers, the casino... Lets contextualise further. Canterbury's GDP in 2022 was almost $45,000m (https://webrear.mbie.govt.nz/theme/gdp-totals/map/barchart/2022/canterbury?accessedvia=canterbury&left-zoom=1&right-transform=absolute). Sail GP economic activity has been estimated at around $4.5m, so therefore represents approximately 0.01% of GDP for the year. Margin of error stuff. Big in raw numbers, but not substantial in context. Or, in common sens
  8. And this, friends, is part of why I went to kerosene...
  9. no, what I am saying is that the rugby and six60 each produced 75% of what the SailGP did with 100% less govt funding. Taking it further, they produced that at one-day events, so on a pe- day basis they actuially exceeded SailGP by around 50% each. And no wrangling about wildlife.
  10. While we are applying science, here's some from the dismal science. SailGP is estimated to have generated a nett economic benefit to Christchurch of about $1m. Nett local and national government contribution to the event was approximately $2.05m. So a nett $0.50 of benefit for every $1 invested. Yes, it generated an estimated $4m of activity, but half of that was money from govt - in other words govt paid people to go and spend. "Fresh Info said the estimated net benefit to the city - which measured the gross benefits minus the gross costs of hosting the event - was more than $1m
  11. perhaps this might assist those afflicted types
  12. As sighted by my brother this afternoon
  13. is this a case in point? ๐Ÿ˜
  14. I feel better about my cell phone now.
