    Can you buy tie downs that don't require knots? I realy suck at knots and plan to try and hit the south island after xmas.

    The Aratere on the return (Goblin's pic I think) I was right at the back corner on the inside, took a few tie downs to find some good working ones.
    Just noticed your pic there, were you worried about the bike being amongst all those trucks? Looks like it's going to be sandwiched.

    I think maybe the large object to the left of the picture is part of the ship.

    The Arahura is my first choice of ferry, but I have no idea where that picture was taken from.

    Interislander are going to start making cabins available for (I have been told) $40 one way. Not sure when this is suposed to start.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    Some of the InterIslander ships have a "club lounge". It used to cost $15 but I think it 's gone up a few bucks. Big arm chairs. Free tea, coffee (bags), and biscuits.

    There is a 40" TV. A laptop connection.

    No children allowed!

    And I've never had to share it with more than two other people...

    Brilliant!

    I hope that they haven't done away with it.

    Post Note: Tie-downs on the Interislander ferries

    When I was making my bookings on the Interislander ferries, I was informed that I needed to bring my own tie downs by the group booking line, as they are no longer providing them, due to buggers continually stealing them.

    Just thought I would note it on here, so hopefully no-one gets caught out by this policy.

    Bluebridge too

    Same goes for Bluebridge ferries - Both have limited numbers of pretty manky ones though - and ropes that smell like grease and anus.
    Has it ever bothered you that Therapist is The Rapist if you break the word in two? It bothers me, especially when they suggest hypnosis.

    Just as well Santa brought my partner some aerofast tie-downs for Christmas. $45-ish from Mt EdenMotorcycles (or so Santa told me).
    There is no such thing as bad weather; only inappropriate clothing!
