  1. Hmm What ,didnt get deployed or just dont work?? https://niwa.co.nz/news/new-tsunami-monitoring-system-for-pacific 22 September 2020 A network of 12 tsunami buoys are being deployed off New Zealand and up into the Pacific over the next few months to help ensure New Zealanders near the coast and Pacific Islands get more accurate information in the event of a tsunami. “The buoys will detect tsunamis but also provide verification one is actually happening which can avoid false evacuation warnings.” The closest buoy to New Zealand is about 150 nautical miles

"Tutukaka marina appears to have been really impacted by these tsunami surges - police have been evacuating all boaties and there have been reports of significant damage and boats getting dragged out off their m
  3. off to the manukau later as e10 ,sunday have a ride booked on the AC yacht so hope it stays away.
  4. I see absolutly no problem with a dog on leash at any beach,providing its to do it bussiness in a secluded part,below the high tide mark,rock pt etc.Ashore and back again. Allowed to run off,there lies the problem.
  5. I dont think so, I use their site and print A4 pages to suit areas that I want to get in close with or find structure ,handy site but does have limited charts,Good when at home you can move cusor around and zoom in and out,nn https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/51277-chart-nz-532-approaches-to-auckland History Added 18 Sep 2012 Last updated 14 Feb 2021 Revisions 16 - Browse all revisions Current revision Imported on Feb. 14, 2021 from GeoTIFF in WGS
  6. I fish there 1/12 to end January ,kings and snapper,for about 6 weeks the gone.Been doing it or yrs. paper chart
  7. Why does Navionics show 2.7m around Sunday rock when minimum depth at bouy is 6m as per my sounder,never found it to be less the 6m anywhere around it. How can a site be trusted when public can add marks to it,surely it should secure and you submit information for them to verify before posting?? There is another site I follow and some cracker going on about how he can stuff to navionics,surely that cant be true??reckons the channel/river he uses he has added a couple of rocks that arent on the chart.If that was the case why pay a fee for what is suppose to the latest update electronic ch
  8. right up the top of the harbour,use to be a solitary house,so at low tide directly in front was the bed,bloody shallow,,as you come down harbour port hand side,doc camp?? use to be a good gurnard spot.
  9. Maybe nephews set up,basic subscription ,but found when zooming in didnt really show up reefone on the left navionics Hooks bay,when looking at shoreline. Individual preference I guess,.
  10. What you going to do if the electronic toys pack up
  11. Paper charts maybe dinosaurus things but are nessacary.More detail on paper than navionics will ever give you.Had a play with the latest fandangle thing and no detail,can zoom in/out but unlike paper.If cant use a paper chart to navigate your Screwed. Gps etc are great until satelites turn unexpectedly or a millatery operation takes over control. As far as I am concerned,a chart parrel rules pencil rubber hand bearing compass is all you need ,Electronics are a guide only.
  12. Exactly. In a marina crime would be mostly like done by sneaking around in a dinghy. Pay absorbent amounts HAHA just wait till Seymour and Co gets in.As I have said before we are labelled as rich pricks included is the guy with 10ft dinghy who fishes off the beach.
  13. option 2 turn your jammers around so you cleat to windward,when your on the windward side you can uncleat them.
