Why ! dear people ! I am someone who has spent a while at sea.
I've been both frightened and thrilled whilst hanging on the the backstays in a whistling wind.
I do appreciate your politeness ,(always appreciated), I hope ,however,that you will also give thought to another point of view,( be it ever so thoughtless )
In your view !
I have sailed since 1963 and regret the encroachment of government.
I also pity you in your enslavement

Please enlighten me . (if you would be so kind )
The funding of the (inshore) Coastguard New Zealand can be found here on page 8 https://www.coastguard.nz/media/4175...report-v10.pdf
Offshore SAR is handled by the RNZN and the RNZAF. NZ together with Chile, Australia and France have the largest combined SAR area of responsibility on the planet.

In the UK the RNLI handles inshore SAR ( I'm an 'Offshore' member for the last 20+ years)... Offshore its down to the RN and the RAF... esp the RAF helicopters - Prince William was flying them for a while.

Both look pretty much the same 'models' to me.....

What I want to know is who has been going round pissing in everyone's porridge this fine sunny morning....?

OK,are you really Brian Lara ?
Short resume,don't know how to do the accent after resume.That's just my age I suppose .Would ask my son but he would only roll his eyes.
1961-67 messing about in dinghys.
1967 -75 messing about in the French canals and Meditteranean sea.
75-81 messing about in southern Africa (Mozambique channel and Capetown.
81 - now, just messing about in boats.
Hope that not too confusing.
