Re: NZ port of entry changes

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 and cleaning 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.

Surely this is not an issue for overseas visitors these days. I thought that was all settled years ago!

Re: NZ port of entry changes

Yes, they will, but it'll add a fair bit to the cost to fly them in and out.
