Summer Cruising Time/Biosecurity
Recent weather has produced some good cruising days. December is already upon us so those vessel owners that want to cruise this summer should have already slipped or planned to slip their vessel for cleaning/antifouling.
The Top of the South Marine Biosecurity Partnership, (TOS) will again be checking vessels.
Results from last summer’s surveying;
· Over 6 days, 187 vessels were surveyed
· Regional breakdown in boat numbers was; Abel Tasman 74, Pelorus 33, Queen Charlotte 80
· Twenty one vessels arrived from outside the TOS area, mainly from Mana Marina and a few from Seaview Marina
· No new marine pests were found, and no Sabella, the Mediterranean fan worm.
That is excellent news
Mana Marina Projects
There are a number of large projects underway including some longer term conceptual ideas for the future benefit of the licence holders, vessel owners and the Marina.
To adequately keep interested parties up to date, we will be adding a dedicated page to our web site. The page is currently being designed and will include;
· Potential re-configuration of A Pier
· Mana Cruising Club’s long term plans to redesign the hardstand and facilities.
Live-Aboard Permits at Maximum
Would all licence holders note that the marina has reached the maximum permitted vessels for Live -Aboard status. If you are looking to occupy or rent your berth as a Live-Aboard, applications will be placed on a waiting list.
Diesel Refuelling Facility.
A reminder to vessel owners that our fuel operation is operated by Petroleum Logistics Limited. (PLPL).
PLPL offer Mobil, BP & Z cards that offer discounts for fuel at Mana Marina and can be used at service stations and other marine sites around New Zealand.
Contact the Marina Office for an application.
Power Leads / Pedestals
Our monthly compliance check of leads plugged into pedestals reveals a large number of leads where the plug is not inserted correctly into the pedestal socket.
The plug must be fully inserted with the locking ring firmly locked onto the pedestal outlet. Failure to connect plug properly will lead to plug/socket burnout.
The marina office will be open Monday to Friday, normal hours 0830 to 1700 hours
We will be closed on the following statutory days and public holidays; Monday and Tuesday 25th & 26th December 2017 and Monday and Tuesday 1st and 2nd of January 2018.
