Today, Howard Bennett joined the team as the skipper of Chinook. Howard holds a coxswains offshore ticket and has 40 years of boating and diving experience.
It was great to have him make his vessel available to us because in fog-free conditions it makes the trip to Rangitoto faster and also allows us to have a longer day as we are not restricted by the ferry schedule. We will be making use of his vessel again on the next fair weather day. /MF
