  1. That was a previous would-be developer that schemed “Metropolis-On-The-Mud”. Herr Herbert wanted to build apartments on the car-park and nearly got away with a clandestine deal with the dreaded Panuku Developments (a council CCO) but someone leaked it the Residents and Ratepayers Assn. and there was an uproar. What finally killed this one was not the RMA but the original Empowering Act of Parliament which is quite specific about what can and can’t be done here.


  2. Jet ski boy also wanted to build apartments out into the mangroves from the westpark travelift after he bought that marina , thank goodness for the RMA.


  3. Used to haul Gloaming and then Tairoa out at that little yard (was Joe Wheeler’s pre ’59). The developer swindled the Takapuna Boating Club out of getting a slipway facility in the new marina as their slimy PR men had agreed to provide. Council got the old boatyard to reclaim in exchange. The old guys were just too tired to fight any more. Oh we all lost our swing moorings too and had been promised berths on the breakwater.


  4. Good photo of the haulout area, Bayswater.
    That is our family yacht Ladybird at RHS rear on the hardstand.
