Taken from Te Puke on December 12. And the Police have JUST made it known !!! It's probably in the South Island by now, OR has been used to poach shellfish up the Coromandel or even trout in the CNI for the last MONTH. Perhaps a public notice of stolen boats (and cars) should be made within 24 hours - before they can be repainted.

Should the Christmas/New Year school holidays be moved to February when the weather is typically better in NZ?

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
