  2. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/mon-dieu-a-french-warship-spotted-off-the-new-zealand-coast/RM5YH5G3PJHZTBRHJ25PSVZAPA/ A volunteer coastguard crew was shocked to discover a French warship lurking in the Hauraki Gulf mist while searching for a stricken yachtie. Kawau Volunteer Coastguard was called out to assist in the search and rescue of the yacht that had lost navigation and electronics amid a gale warning, with winds of 30 knots and heavy rain off Kawau Island last week.

  4. Start of with compulsary "Day Skipper" ticket,covers basic rules etc. If no improvement then boat registration. Trailer boats are easy to do,trailer rego on hull ,one off fee or annual with trailer rego. Yachts/launches(moored) one off fee through ynz until sold/change of ownership. Currently have boatmasters,sat in 1987 with the marine dept when they were in jean batten place ak .Only change I can think of is the AK channel markers went from Numbers to Alphabet ,but "A" buoy still "A" buoy.
  5. Wonder what charges will be laid?? Failing to give way.nit keeping a proper lookout.excessive speed?? The Boston whaler this is.Acident causing injury or possible death?? Penalties??
  6. About 7 or 8yrs ago,Legasea held a fishing symposium. One of the guest speakers was Everlyn pinkerton from BC Canada. She pointed out that all regional councils are responsible for the seabed/fauna/shellfish/fish(in conjunction with mpi)out to the 10 mile limit. But to take on council would be costly.Who has a lazy 2 or 3 mil?? The Landing,not are you only taking on AK council but local Marae who want a cleaner Okahu Bay. Councils arguement will be ,we need to put costly containment tanks in. Hike fees up. $200 up/down $200 per day and say no DIY must use approved applicators for removin
  7. So if the ayba wins appeal no doubt council will lodge another appeal or make the haulout cost prohibitive. See gave them the facilities but they don't want to use it Wayne Brown wants everything to be profitable.user pays.Want to make Liberians volunteers.Close cabs as rents to costly. What sanctions are ynz going to place on rayc seeing how they back closure??

  9. key in centre console,must be in reverse to extract,his one is non turbo and manual 1998 900s 175000km goes like stink. Made by Scania
  10. swedish,built in finland and norwegan input,no wonder they dont exist anymore
  11. Bio security would over rule private marina if issued by MPI??
  12. for an event that the organisers want to turn in to a annual event,didnt even make the sports news on TV.
  13. . remove intake as others have said, Peace of mind. Yesterday changing engine mount on the boys Saab, thought the nuts had disappeared in to the chassis rails, odd ball size and imperil., but after a search found them. Not where one would of thought directly underneath but about 2m away on the driveway.17mm socket nut but 3/8 threads.
  14. D28 ,a few under 25k that look ok. Capable cruiser big volume for size. Not sure about offshore capabilities. Hmm h28 cheap as chips a few ventured offshore.
  15. This person posted on a fishing site. Suggested they came here for advice. I do not know who they are. Like so many want to live the dream without the budget. Good luck
  16. Once again legasea blaming trawlers https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2023/03/increasing-number-of-snapper-caught-in-hauraki-gulf-suffering-from-starvation.html?fbclid=IwAR3EBOSDIlAYbFtpQJwRbjsQ2x5RFFaPVBxlrxyegjoMJG7l3ENSmYzjXFU We had the oppurtunity in 2015 to change but NO legasea were against reccs reporting catch https://www.sanford.co.nz/assets/Press_Release_Hauraki_Gulf_-_issued_28_October_2015.pdf Have only ourselves to blame. https://legasea.co.nz/2017/04/05/feasibility-of-reporting-recreational-catch/
  17. A boat is a vessel carried by a ship. This was installed to me by my grandfather
  18. The average set/haul in the gulf is not as high as you may think average is about 150kg of fish lot of effort for little return. I think deep sea like the orange fleet they would be in tonne per trawl.
  19. Over the yrs of boat ownership. Never brought diesel from a marina, always brought 20lts from high volume stations, kept tank full and added a additive, think it was 10ml per 10lts?empty water trap often. Once bug established .Game over.
  20. If we paid a fee then we can say we are STAKE holders.At the moment we are given a cursory amount even though the Minister must allow for recreational catch. We do not have a birth right to catch fish!!
  21. go to 2.59 https://legasea.co.nz/2022/09/22/legasea-response-to-the-fisheries-amendment-bill-2022/

    Holds my interest better due to close racing and its fleet racing not drag boat racing Wonder if Prime will show Sanfran high lights when it happens.
  23. Yes we wre out in the 45/50m mark off colville on Friday,lots of 28/31 snapper around,Would e happy to take first 7 at that size,sweet unlike the bigger fish. Now if we were serious about increasing fish stock. There are a number of things we can do, 1) no fishing within 1 mile of any shoreline or out lying islands(protect fry etc hiding in kelp ,protects breeding /growing fish 2)no size limit,you catch must be kept 3) no taking any shell fish except kina and no limit on kina,reduce kina barrons and re establishs kelp 4)restrict trawlers out to the 100m mark. 5)
