It just tells the NZ law as it stands and the court case surrounding it. Whats bulltwadaddle about reporting a New Zealand law???????????

Whats wrong with the family having a memorial service? what? Tell me what?

So what are you complaining about in that article?
Oh, so you're an expert on NZ maritime law are you??

Try this bit - for starters: "The Sunday Star-Times revealed last week the US flagged Nina was unseaworthy but because it was foreign flagged it was not required to have a "Cat-1" inspection. "

Apart from being false and misleading, the author of that article (Michael Field) was also the author of the Sunday Star Times article he referred to that was full of "expert opinion" from CruisersForum.

Given your statement above, I suppose you're also one of the pack who claims the Nina was unseaworthy simply because she was old??... Sheesh!!
