    • Shipping channel and berth maintenance works
      • CentrePort is undertaking maintenance to ensure sufficient depths for shipping at some of its wharves, and improvements to shipping channel safety on behalf of the Harbour Master (a downloadable version of this story can be found here) The Dutch Dredging company vessel Albatros, seen in Wellington Harbour last year, returns to clear build-ups of sand in front of the Aotea Quay, and the Thorndon Container, Seaview and Burnham wharves.   The Albatros will be working in areas immediately in front of the wharves, known as ‘berth pockets’.    The Harbour Master reminds recreational vessels to maintain a minimum 100m distance from the Albatros during operations. Shipping movements and propeller wash create mounds of sand which needs to be removed to maintain necessary depths for safe and efficient movement of vessels.   The wharves all play vital roles for CentrePort and importers/exporters.   Aotea Quay facilitates the movement of bulk cargoes such as logs and vehicles.  Thorndon Wharf, home to CentrePort’s two large ship-to-shore cranes allows the movement of shipping containers.  Seaview is where fuel for the lower North Island is offloaded, while all Wellington Airport’s aviation fuel goes through Burnham Wharf. In addition, the Albatros will be doing work on behalf of the Harbour Master/Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC).     It will be removing sand mounds at Falcon Shoals - an area of water between Seatoun and Eastbourne. The removal of material at this site will enable greater separation of the inwards and outwards shipping channels, enhancing safety.  This is acting on recommendations in a joint review by GWRC and CentrePort of navigation safety of the Wellington Harbour entrance conducted last year. All the material removed by the Albatros will be deposited at a site off Thorndon Container Wharf.  The site has been used previously for deposits and is done safely and without disrupting the environment. Greater Wellington Regional Council has granted resource consent for the project covering areas such as care for the environment, maintenance of health and safety, and engagement with Te Whanganui a Tara iwi. With over 7,000 commercial shipping movements per annum (including inter-island ferries, container vessels, fuel tankers, bulk cargo vessels), Wellington is the busiest shipping harbour in New Zealand.  The work covering the berth pocket clearance and shipping lane work is schedule for two weeks, beginning April 11.   Q&A Why is the berth pocket maintenance necessary? Sand caused by propeller wash and shipping movements build up in areas in front of wharves (known as berth pockets).  A minimum depth is required to safely allow for vessels to berth, and to be loaded and unloaded.  Why is material being removed from the Falcon Shoals?  Commercial shipping has designated inwards and outwards lanes.   A review in 2021 conducted by maritime consultancy South Maritime Solutions on behalf of GWRC and CentrePort ( ‘Review of Navigation Safety Wellington Harbour Entrance’)  recommended a greater separation of the outward western lane from the inward eastern lane.  The removal of mounds of sand which currently have to be sailed around, will allow for that greater separation.  The shipping lane adjustments will have no impact on areas used for recreational boating/ water activities. How will the material be removed and where will it go?  The vessel Albatros operated by the company Dutch Dredging will do the work.   A pipe is lowered to the targeted areas and the sand is sucked up onto the vessel.   The vessel will make a series of trips to an area off Thorndon Container Wharf to deposit the material.  This area was used for depositing material following the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake and last year’s channel maintenance work and meets environmental consenting requirements.  How long will the work take? The work is scheduled to be completed within two weeks.  The berth pocket maintenance at the four wharfs will take approximately a week and the Falcon Shoals work approximately four days.   The Albatros hours of operation will be between 6am and 6pm. Will it cause any disruption to commercial shipping/recreational use of the harbour? There will be no disruption.   CentrePort and the Harbour Master will keep harbour users informed of the work.  The sound levels will be no greater than usual commercial shipping activity. What about the environment? The project has been granted resource consent by the Greater Wellington Regional Council.   This includes managing operations to protect the marine environment.

    • Record Store Day 2022 at Slow Boat!!
      • Well, with all the disruption and distraction of the last few years now (hopefully!) largely behind us, Slow Boat is thrilled to share our plans for Record Store Day 2022  - this year taking place on just the one Saturday, the 23rd of April (a week after Easter!) As usual, we will be looking to serve up a tasty array of the limited edition RSD vinyl releases – we have done what we can to order in what we think might be of interest, and it is now in the lap of the gods/ vinyl manufacturing plants/ freight firms/ couriers – godspeed, people! We are also utterly thrilled to announce we will be joined by a couple of our favourite artists for instore performances – namely; Vera Ellen Having released the wonderful “It’s Your Birthday” on the iconic Flying Nun imprint last year, Vera has garnered some excellent reviews with what is a clever and charming collection of songs, and a real grower. Vera will perform instore at 2pm Luke Buda Dear friend of the ‘Boat, and Phoenix Foundation mainstay and co-frontman Buda last year released his long overdue third solo album, the eponymously titled “BUDA”;  a wonderfully reflective collection of songs that ponder our place in the world, getting older, getting along – which wound up on a lot of people’s ‘best of the year’ lists. Given that he was denied the opportunity to tour it (TWICE!) by that blimmin’ Covid, we are thrilled that Luke and violin maestro Anita Clark (aka Motte) have agreed to perform for us here instore at around 3pm. We will have plenty of copies of both artists’ albums, and they will be happy to sign for you at the conclusion of their performances. We will also have the odd spot prize and giveaway, as well as some lollies and other goodies, and will be opening at the earlier time of 9am, just to make the wait for those eager beavers outside just a little shorter. No reserves, no holds on the limited releases, please mask up, and please be patient and considerate of others – we want everyone to have a great day - can’t wait to see you all! Viva independence, viva vinyl – hoorah!!The Slow Boat Crew XX
