  1. "Steering failure" apparently. Remains to be seen exactly what that really means. https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2024/06/interislander-ferry-runs-aground-near-picton.html
  2. Gone. Lost or eradicated? https://www.teaonews.co.nz/2024/06/20/invasive-seaweed-quickly-eliminated-thanks-to-ngati-manuhiri-partnership/
  3. They can. It's exciting.
  4. At least an order of magnitude less capacity than needed, if true.
  5. Noticed the obligatory loose headsail in shoal bay this morning. Seems like there's always at least one!
  6. Just a gimmick without a roof. Will be interesting to see how the tech plays out though.
  7. On the other hand, if it means that one can actually get a berth in Westhaven (as opposed to now), that might also change some of the calculations of potential boat buyers...
  8. https://www.yachtingnz.org.nz/news/anchor-watch-rule-ynz-welcomes-sensible-new-interpretation
  9. Oh and apparently the mokohinaus too https://www.mpi.govt.nz/dmsdocument/61843-Detection-of-Exotic-caulerpa-Mokohinau-Islands-map Does kinda seem like it must be everywhere if it's at the mokes.
  10. I don't think that means it was detected in 2021. Though I agree it's odd on the map. For reference, here's Waiheke https://www.mpi.govt.nz/dmsdocument/59755-Exotic-caulerpa-Waiheke-Island-as-at-20-Oct-2023 and Kawau https://www.mpi.govt.nz/dmsdocument/59749-Exotic-caulerpa-Kawau-Island-as-at-20-Oct-2023
  11. It's a tricky one. Why is under rahui but not under CAN? Not an ideal situation. The opinion of locals, as opposed to actual government rules, is also a grey area. If the "locals" were some rich a****** with a mansion on the shore who didn't want to look at boats in "his" bay, we'd all (rightly) tell him to get stuffed. That said, I probably will try not to anchor there. Mostly because it's not my favourite spot in any event though.
  12. Hopefully there's still somewhere in the gulf we can anchor come next summer.
  13. Presumably there's water at the new marina now?
  14. But where to I wonder?
