    kaipara boat capsize RIP to those that prerished

    sad news for all fishos if you haven't herd a charter boat (Francie) capsized on the Kaipara bar today with 11 POB happily 6 people have been rescued (at last report) but sadly the fate of the others are unknown
    I'm mad keen on fishing and I'm a helensville (kaipara) local and its very sad
    I know the skipper ( I'm unsure if he was one of the lucky 6) I don't know him well but enjoyed a beer and a chat once or twice at the boat club
    my thoughts are with the family's

    Yep, just down the road for me as well and the news came as a hell of a shock. The weather wasn't particularly bad. Sad news indeed, especially being so close to Christmas. RIP.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
