New Zealand New Rules for vessel arrivals

As of May 2018 NZ will implement the new rule that all arriving vessels must have a clean bottom free of any growth as per this attachment:

It's a reasonable requirement. The trip to NZ is usually less than 10 days, so diving the boat before you leave the islands should be enough, even on old bottom paint.

Agree with Paul L and I say good for them for trying to stop invasive species!

Sadly many of them are already there.

IMMS there are restrictions on boats going from Auck to BOI or somesuch as some parts have pests .. others don't.

Ditto Port Phillip to Tasmania... commercial ships aren't allowed to discharge PP ballast water in Tas.

Door - stable - horse - bolted......

Re: New Zealand New Rules for vessel arrivals

When arriving at the Bay Area many years ago we had to dump water ballast so many miles out before arrival to try to prevent the spread of foreign species. Zebra Mussels I think. It didn't work.

...interestingly enough the introduction of the by far, F A R!!!, most invasive species is now very hard to reverse...who'd have those 4,6 millions...?

Re: New Zealand New Rules for vessel arrivals

since this is like closing the door after the cows got out, in reading the rule it seems that what it really is is a way for marinas/yards to make money by forcing a haulout

Not a lot of money to make off this rule as the vast majority of cruisers arrive with a clean bottom. No one wants to do a 1,000 mile passage with a dirty, slow bottom. For those that show up with a science experiment below the waterline they will have to get hauled and cleaned on arrival.
Some places are a lot stricter. In the Galapagos we had our bottom video taped twice by divers as part of our incoming clearance and they don't even have haulout facilities.
