This be it.        But I think we might be all getting a bit cynical here.( regarding the Birdsall) If you think about it , trawling adds on trademe would be a good way to find a suitable boat

I'm guessing someone's looked under where it was moored?

Didn't BoBo find the boon on barrier somewhere?

wheels of justice grinding slowly


and finely


Police have been granted a warrant to arrest Simone Anne Wright – the partner of a man already in custody on 60 charges – on a charge of stealing a $145,000 yacht at Paihia in the Bay of Islands last year.


He faced 60 charges, including one of stealing the yacht, thefts, frauds, and causing people to act on forged documents.


Police have also charged him with indecent assaults on a 15-year-old girl in Auckland in 2008 and supplying her with the class B drug MDMA, or ecstasy.


The charges allege offending in Paihia, North Shore, Auckland, Taupo, Upper Hutt, Palmerston North, Christchurch, Cust, Naseby and Wanaka in Otago.


Bennett denies all the charges and has been remanded in custody for a pre-trial call-over which may set a trial date, on February 3

Paul Bennett was convicted and sentenced to 38 months imprisonment last month.


Simone Wright found guilty on seven charges and awaiting sentence.
