  1. Geez guys....relax and enjoy it. What a vista being transmitted to the world. Only problem is even more of them will want to come here. Govt. has had its $35 million worth and Grant Dalton's vision is proved. What a bargain
  2. No, that's your statement ,not mine. One rule for all !
  3. Yeah...it's the effect of concentration in one place that concerns me ,if that wasn't clear
  4. Chickens coming home to roost. Another hidden cost of suburban infill and high rise as the planners strive for an urban utopia where you live work and play in a confined area,carless AND controlled .But because the pipe is hidden and most won't see the discharge it's OK. Bad luck for the environment but as it won't be seen it'll be OK. The concept is fatally flawed but what the hell . They have the degrees in planning and won't be around to suffer the consequences of their mistakes
  5. Yep....a kind caring and compassionate Government.....depending on who you are ! 300 a day reportedly come in by air. NZers reputedly but a lot are naturalised Indians ,Asians ,British and USA.If NZ is to keep out Covid its all or nothing. .Seems stupid to send away people who want to spend shiploads on their boats and could have quarantined on their boats at no expense to taxpayers.
  6. Cheer up mate. It'll only get worse. And better,much better and then worse again repeat repeat repeat. Welcome to the world of boat ownership. Beats mowing lawns and reading world cruising books though
  7. Yeah...we tip ???? is it Jeyes fluid in Barrier ,Whangaroa & Manganui water. Tastes OK & apparently ( less danger than Covid as we havent died) potable
  8. You're right AJ. But under the new way Government of Jacinderella it's kindness, understanding, education and reward. The land of milk and honey.It's why the world is beating a path to our door. We even pay for certain sectors of the population to get a drivers license. .Fully expect that soon the blowflies of the ocean will get the same consideration
  9. Aw c'mon Zozza. Of course it wasn't Jacinderella's fault. Anyone can see that it was the National partys' fault for creating a financial environment where people who want to get off their tails can make enough money to pay taxes to keep Jacindas mob and have a bit more to buy a launch that unfortunately hit a reef thereby providing more opportunity for those with the handout mentality to take a bit more !
  10. My comments about fairness are not meant to indicate my preference.It was to point out that if the Govt. regulates ,as it should do,the dredgers are going to claim victimisation etc. etc..My preference is obviously dive only and I'm not a diver.
  11. Yeah...we get around there occasionally and would also support. BUT...it's OK for divers but how about those boats who don't ,can't ,won't dive. Is that fair ? I've seen the damage dredges to the beds...So a total ban is good while the powers that be work on the fairness and equity thing for non diving recreational boaties
  12. Just submit " no wash"...it doesn't matter what speed.In any event consultation is meaningless. The decision has already been made.Consultation is a feelgood token to democracy so that us minions can feel like we've been involved....when we haven't !!!
  13. As Jon says buy the one that specs up and pay the extra.It'll end up a bargain and if you look after it you'll be able to sell it easier for the same reason.
  14. Trimaran in Pittwater....very quick....Bluey Zarzoff !
  15. Go for it KM.The snowflakes deserve that. I've got similar stupidity going on at the moment.I'll take your line I think.Where theres a traceable trail they already have the info they need. Gross invasion of privacy but hey,thats what a minority of NZ voted for ...and they think they're a majority.!!!!!
