Annual agonising over the Rena
10 September 2015
0 0

I see it’s time for the annual agonising over the Rena. Given that it’s 4 years on and the chances of forcing the owners of moving it are about nil, especially in light of the stern now being on the bottom, not resting on the side of the reef as was initially the case, it might be time to scrap the exclusion zone if nothing else.

When it first ran aground there was a 1km no go zone which it could have stayed, seeing as the whole reef is about 1km in diameter so the 7.2km [2nm radius] now in force seems  a little excessive.

The main reason for it was, IMO, so that the hoi polloi[us] couldn’t see just how little the salvors actually did. Still, good for sectors of the local economy though.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
