Mooring knots

Towing of small boats risks with using anchor post versus trailer clip pull "D"

Radio communications, how to get the best communications and where the best communication areas are for each of our available channels (radio testing on 30/10/13 on CG OP showed that by using the correct channel we could have a coastguard IMT active but  away from the hut whilst Porirua Rescue was involved in a fishing boat assist at the Southern end of Kapiti island, IMT was based in Tawa)
