Is that a yes or a no?

[Edit Grunta] It's a definite Yes!

Here's a clip from the full press conference - time to check weather and tides...

Yes.  The word "boat" was used. :)

Predict strong north easterlies for a few weeks then :(

Edit:  Nope: she said "sailing" was OK.  Not "boating".  A fine difference maybe

"Moving around Auckland for the purpose of hunting"

Does that mean fishing? Pretty sure Auckland hunting opportunities are a bit light. Unless there's deer galloping around on the domain that I can shoot at :)

Seriously - what has she got against taking a tinny out on the Waitemata? Does she think I might make a break for the Bay of Islands LOL

Fairly sure Coast-Guard aren't busy manning MIQ. In most cases they would only chuck you a rope to tow you back to the ramp. Not really much COVID risk in that?

Interesting one.....Under the old Level 3 rules Sailing/Motorised boating & Jetskis are classed together as a no go. If Jacinda says sailing is OK, then surely boating is too. Your thoughts?

Maybe if I take the Mongrel Mob out that will be alright?

No bugger that. Think if enough of us went out to 'test the waters" they would just let it go?

There's certainly plenty of fuzziness in the new rules to argue an interpretation.

translates to................

All boating and fishing has one thing in common,
its all outside!
LOL,

Makes zero sense.

She said its ok to go sailing.... so what's the difference?
They have to use motors to exit the mariner right? 
BTW dirty yachties will have a far higher risk of spreading covid.

At 1.06.20 into the video of the full press conference we have "... for absolute clarity, it is possible, if you keep to the limits that we've already set out, to go fishing from a boat"

Time to check weather and tides...

He has and the last time I saw it, it was a large twin hulled cat with huge twin outboards.
May have purchased a bigger better one by now because to quote that man himself.

The reference to "if you keep to the limits we've already set out" would have to be those measures within the announcement, which was "within Auckland geographical area" for hunting, recreation, sailing etc.

So this would extend the previous 200metre limit and include Great Barrier and to about halfway across the Firth.

Needs clarity.Cannot drive to coromandel but if boating is allowed then who is going to stop you crossing imaginary border going to coromandel walk up town for a beer?? I can meet nephew at beach for a pinic but cannot fish from his boat as different bubbles. All to vague.

Well you had a lawyer from Akl at the Hastings races last w/end and not to mention the lawyers that went to Wanaka. 
I am guessing a few lawyers own boats too. This will get interesting.
So what happened to the premise that boating was too dangerous under L3 - because CG would have to break their bubble?
Or as Grunta says - maybe stuff doesn't have to make sense anymore?

You will have to be pretty silly to go over and land on Coro or similar. I think it’s going to be clear it’s launch and retrieve in Auckland.

It’s pretty simple take it as it is and don’t take the cake.

Here ya go:

Latest update — 4 October 2021
The Government has announced a 3 step plan for easing restrictions in Auckland.
From 11:59pm on Tuesday 5 October, Aucklanders can travel anywhere within the Auckland region for outdoor exercise and recreation.
You will now be able to go boating  — including fishing from a motorised boat or vessel, sailing, scuba diving, jetskiing and camp overnight. 
There are some restrictions — outdoor activities with other people are limited to 2 households, and a maximum of 10 people.
If a boat has an enclosed space, only one household or bubble can go boating.
If a boat does not have an enclosed space, 2 households or a maximum of 10 people can participate.

Its really quite clear...

Auckland remains in Level 3 except for a few conditions that permit you to be closer to Level 2 but with the restrictions of Level 3 while allowing for the Level 2 freedom but maintaining a Level 3 threshold with a Level 2 range while keeping a clear Level 3 environment that will allow you to do those Level 2 activities as long as they meet the guidelines of Level 3 but this is only on the condition that the Level 2 processes are structured to fit in the Level 3 roadmap.

So I can take up to 10 people from 2 households in the 3.6m Mac but only the wife and dog can come when we go out in the superyacht.

CG are volunteers so yeah they aren't manning MIQ however for them to be out and about ready to help the volunteers need to effectively break their family bubbles e.g. my local CG unit needs a minimum of 4 crew to put the rescue vessel out so that's 4 bubbles.

CG will be working through how they bubble up at the moment as there will be a lot of boats out this weekend so likely more than usual calls for assistance.

It's also a fact that many of the CG volunteers are heading towards the retired end of the age range as these are the ones with more time to volunteer (especially mid-week).

That's funny. Great reason not to own a superyacht too, which of course is why I don't have one

Thanks but Steps has already offered me a spot on his boat for scallops and have had a couple of other offers also which I've had to turn down. I'd be keen if it wasn't for this work thing Cry of course I am grateful to be working so I shouldn't grumble.

I don't think it's been mentioned so far, but during L4 and L3 many boat ramps in our area of Auckland had chains, bars etc blocking the top of the ramp or access carpark.
It will be interesting to see if they're all taken down, or there will be some frustrated people at ramps tomorrow...


Posted By: smudge
Date Posted: 05 Oct 2021 at 10:45am
The post on FB Coastguard sums it up well as to what we can and can't do. If we're sensible and don't break borders, bubbles & behave at the boat ramps then everything will be sweet. 

Best we check our motors start, our batteries are charged and our steering works before getting to the ramp. Those would be the big ticket items for trouble on the water after a long rest period.

Its very interesting,, Auckland and now Hamilton is in level 3,
Auckland has multiple cases and still not much control with cases still spreading, Hamilton had one yesterday, from Raglan, god knows how Raglan got it considering no unauthorized people are allowed to cross the border, Hamilton has a tighter level 3 so no boating even out of Raglan even though its in level 3..... We that have to work in Auckland are stuck in Hamilton unless we want to go to the trouble of obtaining and exemption (not worth the hassle)

I've heard that they may give up on the total eradication of the virus now?  Who knows  Ouch

Boats all ready but we are land locked it seems

Smudge isnt old enough to retire... yet
 
Yep.. And next monday looks good as well
Wed
Tides look good,
 Watched the bar low tide to figure out where and how narrow the channel is..If going Waikato stay more closer to the starboard shore break than the bar side... looks more shallow than usual over there...and keep going on that NNW line till well clear.
wind NW, thu do rise around when come in so thats good... Crew sorted..young grandsions 1st trip over the bar and long term m8 and fishing m8 eager as hell.
 Motor run, trim checked, lights, pumps, vhf etc checked, tyres checked...
rods checked and rigged, spare traces sorted,
 jackets checked, Portable vhf and epirp on my jacket checked
bait done(always have bait in the freezer)
Ice..done (use a big plate icey cube in the bottom and heap small ones for the gut cavity.. so done)
berly as per bait.. done.

Not going to hit out 50/60m  that wind picks up and that far off shore, it will pick up a good chop against swell.

And then the wind changes for Frid..  fish across midday tide, and a fe scallops on the way home.

And maybe look at next monday over the bar as well...if the boss will let me go.

Go to 60m if conditions are good Steps, You will have the best fishing of your life. Take skinny gear and if you use a two hook rig you better use 60lb trace and some strong AF recurve hooks because two big snaps on a dropper rig will snap one of them off. Especially 8/0 Gamakatsu's. Use one hook and thank me later. Or better still some jigs. As long as you're using light braid you won't need to touch a bait all day long - especially if your crew use bait to drag the fish in Wink. Good luck!

Ready  to rock n roll tomorrow. Taken 1 days annual leave. Have some awesome fresh kahawai for bait courtesy of few mates hooking into them tonight off local rocks. I took 4 off them while watching them, good sized kahawai. Three dropped to young neighbours flatting next door, gutted and scaled on the spot,  and kept 1 for me for bait tomorrow along with a bag of frozen macks purchased at hunts today from the dispenser. Boat ready to go and sitting right over tow ball on truck.
Hope it gunna be as good as my anticipation is.

Give this a try Steps - or check it at least:  If yours is a 1996 or newer, a common problem was arcing between the black-yellow and a ground inside the 6 pin Deutsch connector for the engine harness and the boat harness. Many riggers did not pack both sides of the connector socket with dialectric grease as specified in a service bulletin and the high voltage in the "kill circuit" - above 400 at times - could arc to ground and stop the motor.

Remove both black-yellow and the black wires from both sides of the connector and inspect for any arc marks on the pins and sockets along with any carbon tracks inside the connector shells. Pack the socket with dialectric grease and then install the orange wedge allowing the grease to squeeze out. Use some on the rubber seal also for good water resistance.

 Well one of the 1st things I do on a new (2nd hand engine ) is to pack and seal all connections as per the factory service manual... and re do if ever open them.

The engine warmed up crawling thru the waikato creeks then opened up to fast cruise from the start of the forest.. and get to bar.. died.. wait, cools, and run fine again.
CDI thu believe the timing eye may also cause similar thing to happen
New CDI ordered should be here by the weekend

Been thru weeks of lockdown.. nps , no stress.
Damn its been a very very long time that I have felt so damn out of sorts today.. even the missus noticed..

Was good to get out and run that boat. Early start but wasn’t even close to being first out and few boats including my cousins when arrived at my chosen spot. First two snapper for me  were 53 cm and then a 62cm on big baits, with plenty of pannies after that. Took 5 home. Big ones will smoke tomorrow. Boat went well apart from grounding while went to retrieve my trailer, resulting in bit of heaving and inventive trailer positioning. Not easy by yourself. Should of anchored it, bit too casual just pulling bow up and finding it sideways and aground when returned with trailer.
