Reprovisioning at BOI.


Recommended Posts

I have to pick up the family and reprovision, water etc on 13th January.  
what’s the best way to do this?  The marina says they’re fully booked. 

Is there a temporary berth/wharf nearby?  

Perhaps someone has a 10 or 12 m berth I could borrow for an afternoon at Opua on 13th January?

To do shopping, Paihia has supermarkets where as Opua has only the general store.So can anchor off Paihia, or go on a jetty(water is the finger at the end near Waitangi)but you wont loiter.Opua- you can go on the yacht club pontoon and get water(a levy $5-$10, )and there is booking book in clubhouse. So someone may have already booked half of the pontoon(meant to be able to get 2 boats on.)

Cheers for this. Probably didn’t make it clear that main thing is being able to get alongside somewhere as the girls will have, well, a LOT of stuff and our tender is a Takacat which is a bit damp for ferrying sleeping bags etc. 

I’ll get in touch with the yacht club  I didn’t know about this.

There is a public dock on the inside of Opua main wharf, hardly ever see anyone on it, you can get quite a big yacht in there.

Do you mean between the old store takeaways and the general store?  And you can get ashore (and back again obviously)? Sounds like a good option.
