Two-boat bases needed?

Recommended Posts

No matter which base layout is selected in AKL, space will be at a premium. So, considering that two-boat testing won't be allowed (other than for the Defender), I was wondering whether there really is a need for storing both team boats on the dry - if it's a marginal opportunity, Boat 1 could be kept floating somewhere else in the basin. 

Also, will teams be paying rent for the bases, and any idea how much that would be?

When questioned about where an overflow of teams might have to go, Rod Marler, design and place director for Panuku, the city’s regeneration agency, said: “We’d have to find another location for them; or reduce the number of teams who can build two boats.”

Good luck with that. Just another bureaucrat talking without first removing his head from his rectum.
