  1. Hi sorry for the tardy response. I have a gas stove rather that kero. Thanks
  2. Hi We have a long loved Broadwater stove and would like to keep it going... If anyone has an old Broadwater stove they do not want/need I would welcome a discussion to see if we may be able to help. Please feel free to reply here or message me on the site. many thanks Jim D
  3. Hi The Council and Harbourmaster are empowered by the Maritime Transport Act 1994. Wreck issues are very clearly dealt with "33JRemoval of wrecks by regional council (1) A regional council may take steps in accordance with this section to remove and deal with any wreck within its region that is a hazard to navigation." Likely a bit of a stretch to say that wreck was a hazard to navigation when it is hard on the rocks in 1 metre of water and not likely to float off. Not is states "Council" and not "Harbourmaster" i.e. it i
  4. The Maritime Transport Act 1994 guides us. Note tyhe requirement to be a "hazard to navigation" may be that it is not deemed a hazard where this one lies. May than use 33L which is about 'abandoned' vessels. Tight parameters though. The Resource Management Act 1991 does also offer solutions where the vessel/wreck breaches a rule or is discharging a pollutant (breaking up would do that). Again all down to interpretation. 33JRemoval of wrecks by regional council (1) A regional council may take steps in accordance with this section to remove and deal with any wreck
  5. Hi We have a Seabird 2.6 as one of our tenders. A small boat for two adults but ok in calm to slight conditions. Rows fine and sails fine also. We enjoy the options of being able to row, sail or use the 2hp outboard. The boat is not as sweet to look at as the Townson Dinghy.

    Beautiful cats! Dare I ask what breed they are?
  7. Hi Unfortunately a vessel came to grieve at Le Bons Bay over the weekend. Bavaria 39 'Rio Sun' ex Tauranga. Be careful out there this summer.
  8. Thanks Splat, Yes indeed, talking about cruising is always good. Happy to chat through Fiordland and places south. You can drop me an email at jim.dilley@ecan.govt.nz cheers
  9. A small article that contains an update on the cruising family that left NZ because winter was too cold. Also shows they are not the only idiots out there showing no respect for local rules or peoples lives. I do hope they are not allowed back into NZ. https://www.rnz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/419580/trio-detained-after-sailing-from-new-caledonia-to-solomons
  10. Yup I am with you here we have been hit at least twice in a marina (both times destroying a windpilot self steering gear). Exactly why I want it insured and see no difference or lesser risk just because I can't go out on it. Conversely I wouldn't expect my house insurance to increase over lock down because I am using it more.
  11. Yup I am with you here. My boat is safely tucked up in the marina not breaking any rules but I want it insured still.

    Turning off AIS

    I can understand some people may like to see their boat is still where it should be and afloat when not onboard. Ashore? turn it off surely? Class B units will be bumped out of the available transmission time-slots in busy areas with Class A having preference, so the system takes care of this overloading itself. However this would mean other Class B units, that were at sea, may also get pushed out of a timeslot because someone has left an AIS on while the boat is safely moored. Not a problem in NZ i expect (yet) but some places it could mean you onlt pop up on other vessels AIS at quite long t
  13. Hi On SportNZ website now. https://sportnz.org.nz/assets/Uploads/Play-Recreation-and-Sport-Detailed-Level-1-4-Table.pdf Slightly different to what has been coming from other government bodies (i.e. this seems more permissive) but time will tell.
  14. Dutyfree that is the exact view we had when we bought a marina berth licence at a different marina. Simply paying a bit upfront.
