  1. Presumably there's water at the new marina now?
  2. But where to I wonder?
  3. That sets a *maximum* (of 30 days), not a minimum, as it implies out of context. Zero would be allowed. In general, I'm a bit torn. Yes insurance inspections are pain in the * and I hate them, and insurance premiums only ever seem to go one direction (up, and recently by a lot). On the other hand, old derelict shitters coming and occupying your anchorages, and maybe worse sinking there, isn't something we as a boating community want either. See, for example, the issy bay hulk saga and the weiti example above. How to solve that, I don't know.
  4. I'm told everything big under the bridge has two tugs. Obviously not guaranteed but a lot more redundancy at least.
  5. Looked like 9 or thereabouts. Rather a lot of near-drifting boats with kites up as we went over the bridge this morning. Some drifting backwards with the tide, from the look of it...
  6. Surely that just depends on how you spec it. Hybrid cars can.
  7. Found on SA when I went looking. QLD apparently.
  8. I'd guess most electric yacht propulsion is hybrid with a genset for when the sun isn't shining. Would make a lot of sense for a new build, and if you weren't planning to motor for huge amounts of time.
  9. My understanding is that the threshold is quite low, too.
  10. There's an electric propulsion option I think. So maybe?
  11. https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/parks-recreation/stay-at-park/Pages/accommodation-details.aspx?itemID=54 According to the council it's potable, but also to boil it. Make of that what you will.
  12. Great. Hope there's a huge fleet, in contrast to anniversary day!
  13. It's interesting discussion in light of the other active thread about electrical fires. No option is perfectly safe of course!
  14. Presumably this means your insurance cover is not (technically) adequate for marina or haulout requirements?
