  1. just find a local outboard shop,not point in fluffying around sending it ,freights a killer.wouldnt of thought more than about $350,oil change,gear box oil,anodes maybe a plug.
  2. Glad you asked that .BP. After your inquiry on how to watch. I listened to the news all day and heard no sailing results now I know why
  3. Thats what I thought at the time but others said same thing.
  4. You have your Spencer up the Clevedon river?? Do you have a exhaust shut valve?why I ask as it is common for eels to work there way in to the exhaust and you may think they will come out on fire up of engine apparently not so. This was the advice an old boy back in 1996 gave me when we moored up at clevedon. It was already fitted.
  5. You have "Sky" ?? this is where sports falls down in NZ.Unlike Aussie(I believe) national olympics,rubgy test etc must shown for free on national tv. might be wrong. https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/tv-radio/125759566/how-to-watch-the-tokyo-olympics-2020#:~:text=Here's how you can watch,to air on TVNZ 1.
  6. 3 or 4 have been listed on T/M for tender,no idea if sold but really local tip would be a better option.No doubt new owner's just leave rot more.Most are past use by date.
  7. https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/plans-projects-policies-reports-bylaws/bylaws/Documents/navsafetybylawcontrols2014.pdf 15 Vessels to be seaworthy (1) The person in charge of a vessel anchored or moored in any navigable waters must keep the vessel in a seaworthy condition at all times, unless the Harbourmaster has given prior written approval for it to be anchored or moored in a condition which is not seaworthy. Anybody knows why this rule is NOT being enforced??I will take a guess,to get rid of the old shitters would cost rate payers $$ and who is qualified to say a vessel is sea
  8. Have Your Say Navigation Bylaw 2021 Proposed new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-Rohe Urungi Āhuru / Auckland Council Navigation
  9. That sentence reminds of my nephews plumbing problem, rang a plumber ,2 young guys turned up and walked straight through house in dirty boots, Matt asked which one of you is the tradesman.1st one was 1st yr apprentice 2nd one yr 2 apprentice. Matt rang company and said if I am paying tradesman wage I expect a tradesman to accompany apprentices. He went else where.
  10. noticed your one doesnt have the track on the step by companway,so you cannot adjust sheeting angle,just been looking at friends and noticed the difference.
  11. I suspect that Panuka want to sell land/building in the hope purchaser will retain tenants.
  12. Yes I would of thought blockade so cannot get supplies?But unfortunatly the group who are in attendance appears to be rent a crowd.Just there for the trouble. There was a ship/trawler painted in Dunedin(I think) this week had ban trawlers painted down the side by Greenpeace activist.The way forward would of been a small boat flotilia and blocked berthage so it couldnt leave,All for action but needs to be peaceful and you will get meaningful coverage.imo
  13. Just have to watch the news clip posted and you will the guard kicking the protester,why complain about a member posting it when its in the news for all to see??

  15. plenty of fish if you like snapper,we are trying to target jd and gurnard but cant get past the snapper.
  16. The concern is 3 more yrs till they put cameras on. Talking to a trawler guy and he said they have certain trawl lines they follow,up and down that line week in week out,if the net is or has removed/damaged the seabed why are the fish still? Not defending them but is the info we are getting correct, Blaming commercial scallopers in mercury bay/opito bay for lack of scallops when they have been banned for 5 or so yrs.Now the report came out blaming what we have been doing on the land,which is something i have said for awile.releasing heavy metals/silt and the seafood dies or moves off..
  17. Interesting part is,regardles of outcomes "Customary rights will still prevail" This is what Seymour had to say. https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/06/david-seymour-attacks-government-s-plan-to-protect-hauraki-gulf.html
