Surprise surprise! Oh dear they are not coming.

They never were in the first place.

The number they quoted as coming during the sales pitch was hugely above the number of berths they were preparing, that's unless they expected 100 odd boats to anchor out each night which was not a happening thing.

The floating transporter is due next week to take a few boats away as the Govt won't let the owners in to use them. Sadly leaving with the ships is many many many millions of bucks that was but now not going to be spent in NZ. But the ship is dropping a huge number of boats off here for locals and Aussie. A few more big stink boats are coming in on it.

Yep....a kind caring and compassionate Government.....depending on who you are ! 300 a day reportedly come in by air. NZers  reputedly but a lot are naturalised Indians ,Asians ,British and USA.If NZ is to keep out Covid its all or nothing. .Seems stupid to send away people who want to spend shiploads on their boats and could have quarantined on their boats at no expense to taxpayers.
