The small coaster ANATOKI was purchased in Japan for work on the NZ Coast. New Zealand Rules on crew size and other requirements change if the registered length is over 45 metres which ANOTOKI was. To overcome this holes were cut in the forepaek tank allowing the sea to access and that the registered length was measured from the collision bulkhead and the stem where it cuts the waterline. All very well if you can get away with it!. 2008Date posted17th December 2010ContributorJ A BrownANATOKI sailing from Timaru on 16 December 2010 loaded to he marksHoles cut giving sea access to the forepeak.
