    Hankinson is still a pretty big lake mate Id off to let you borrow ally hull inflatable with 15 hp from invers if you get stuck no beaches and steep sides if you get in the shit and would only attack it in good weather it takes a while to fly over it so would take hours to paddle lol

    I’m sitting on the sidelines wondering if come April we’re gonna be treated to one of the best examples of Darwinism we’ve ever seen in NZ. On the one hand I’m kinda… nah, don’t do it, but on the other its kinda yeah go for the crazy mofo plan mate, entertain us.

    If you survive after putting rescue services lives at risk, expect serious repercussions.

    Other one would be a float plane if its a chartered flight I think they have different rules that would be 100x better than boating in
    Last year we went to down Stewart Island didnt need masks or anything (this was b4 delta) because we had charterd the flight If that makes sense

    Haha it's about 6km long and if its rough I won't attempt it because we will already be in our block . And at 6km I'm sure pack rafts will do faster than 3k an hour. The guy who's selling me said they do . So it's only going to take 2 hours . I've also done lots of kayaking as I'm really into kayak fishing. So I won't risk anything that's too risky . But if I'm standing on the edge of the lake and it's flat as a pancake without a raft of some kind I'll be pissed .

    Met a family on the Hollyofrd, doing the Hollyford/Pyke pack rafting circuit. Two adults and 2 kids in 2 boats and they were coping fine, rowed down McKerrow, Wilmot and Alabaster. If the weathers against you, you just sit it out until its all good. And they were telling me that they can average 5km per hour, about the same as a good walk. So Hankinson should be fine if the weather plays its part. I can just imagine quietly paddling up the lake and a bull lets rip in the bush around you. Would be cool!

    The Hollyford is nothing like the Wapiti area, having spent a reasonable amount of time in both. Hollyford is a nice easy area to explore.

    I've refrained from dabbling into this thread( as I avoid the topic of the covid/ the jab) however if I can help people I will do some ringing around the club down here.

    For those who are looking for options let me know you're dates etc and I'll see if I can put you in touch with people.

    Im in the same boat as you so will be needing to find my own boat across the lake as the case may be. Hopefully boat companies may review their policies by allowing similar options to national transport operators 🤞

    Just some info that may be of interest ,we have been in contact with DOC for a while about getting back into our before the Lock Downs regular self boat trips into Stewart Island & Fiordland .Mate was notified today they have had their first confirmed Chyna Flu case staying in the Fiordland huts/walk , infected were on Kepler track from 2528 February, staying at Luxmore, Iris Burn and Moturau huts on the 25, 26 and 27 February respectively. Mate was told they will be having a crack down on proof of vaccination at all DOC sites & transport providers ,including random spot checks ,so l would say those in the Wap Ballot will be stuffed without proof.

    I know of a fulla with a boat on that lake.
    Sounds like he is down that way quite often too.
