Re: Sailing Around New Zealand
Yes the NZ authorities are very strict on non sea worthy vessels at sea.
They can and will ban you from leaving harbour and banning movement of your boat if necessary.
That being said there's some wonderful places you can go, including the Bay of Islands. There's months of flat water cruising right there. Historic too... Waitangi treaty was signed there. A great adventure.

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know
