Great story, thank you for sharing.

(I don’t think I would attempt any of the west coast harbour entrances without someone with excellent local knowledge on board!)

At least Raglan has leading lights. Years ago i went on a bar day wirh the Coastguard, well worth it, but was so calm I could have rowed the tender over it.

Thank you enjoyed the read. Have only crossed the Manukau Bar once in a fizz boat. On way out no issues, coming in.1/2 tide dropping sw 10knts.Hmm thought much rather enter Tutukaka in a 20knt easterly. No desire to venture across a bar again. Was in a 6m ali with 150hp and wave/swell still pushing us side ways.

Can see why C/G maybe concerned at 5knts.
