From their documentation
a haul out
is required if the boat
arrives from overseas and is obviously dirty - that is barnacles
, fanworm and similar growth - not just slime, and doesnít have any documentation
of recent cleaning
(hence implying that the growth was brought in from overseas rather than having grown in NZ).
Documentation of recent haul out
or of thorough in-water bottom cleaning (date stamped underwater photo
of cleaned bottom along with a note in the log will suffice) within the last 30 days will help to avoid being forced to haul out if your bottom is dirty just from the passage
This will be the first season with the new rules so it will be interesting to see how it plays out.
