    I put a picture of one on some thread or faceplant. Does triple duty as drogue/emergency steering/flopper stopper.

    I am so sad this has happened to Bertie. I saw the boat when they were up this way to meet with Alan and Sherry Farrell, but did not meet Peter. We did exchange thoughts on the Boat Design Forum. It is a little hard to imagine Bertie getting knocked down, but she is not the first of that design to come to grief. I am glad they both were recovered.

    Ancien regime, Phil.

    And they only stopped one from leaving.

    New Zealand and cat 1 vs foreign flagged vessels. Most of the requirements are common sense however their are one or two points that can catch out some boats.
    Our ocean search and rescue area is very large with respect to our country size and population and given the large number of rescues we end up co-coordinating or sending maritime aerial surveillance the powers that be decided that some safety requirements where needed,
    Both to ensure the vessels ability to cope with typical conditions (Structural), Crews ability and experience, communication and life preservation in the case the boat sink and the crew need to survive in a life raft for a couple of days until conditions moderate and a ship can be directed to pick them up.

    We have had a couple of instances where foreign flagged boats have been stopped from leaving but these where very extreme cases where the boat and crew where in no way capable of safely crossing a duck pond.


    Some stat's. The NZ S&R co-ordination area is aprox 30,000,000 sq km from Antarctica almost up to New Caledonia, up north of Samoa and then 50 degs east or New Zealand.
    Respond to approx 1200 incidents a year.
    That dose not include the local coastal stuff that Coast Guard deal with.
