  16. What F23kwit wrote the https://boimms.co.nz/the-proposal If approached stop vessel/idle/drop sails??never ever going to happen Cape Brett to TikiTki rock maybe inside that line make it a 5knt zone but then that could become a safety issue depending on weather. The proposed area Motutua island to Roberton thought that would already be a 5knt zone due to proximity to shore. Tapeka pt to Motukarui island no issue there being a 5knt zone. Do not think that it is just a Boi problem,The issue may extend to most of the Hauraki Gulf.As the area from Pakatoa island to Cape Col

  20. I wouldnt say he is fraudster as such.He buys abandoned or cheap junk and tidies them up. ie buy for $500 and try and sell for $2k. it is buyer beware. If you buy any boat and dont get it loked if you are boating inclined,no idea if a outboard is good or not or rot in hul.I would say that was yoir fault. Only tried dealing with him once then got blocked for asking a question.

But Jason says he is "in trade" so the buyer has prote
