for me i make no destinction in who i help,be it islanders,super yotters or grotty yotters,you however seem to have an enourmous chip on your shoulder against all yotties!
Please tell me what is so petty about being annoyed at someone willingly flouting the law, failing to show respect to a host country and defaming a widely respected member of the sailing community just because he is an official.
And I help a whole lot more people than you realise but I don't bask in fame.

since you are so close to the op instead of ranting on the internet,how about going over there and give him a tow........problem solved.......then you can help avoid an international incident.......and be a hero for a day! lol

I don't have a vessel to tow him with at present but might publicise his plight in my weekly newspaper column. Maybe marine and ports can help him.

Maybe we could hook him up with the "Block Island Tow Guy" and let wingers takeover the site for good. Not that I am in any way suggesting that either of those two posters are wingers. If anyone thinks that I am suggesting the same then I apologise in advance, so please Ms moderator do not take this comment as being NOT NICE.

Re: New Zealand Immigration Officer Making Wild Claims

Since the yacht has now moved out of NZ waters the issue is over and this thread closed. A number of posts have been also deleted for breach of forum rules.
