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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
