REVIEW: Boats.com 2004

Kadey Krogen Yachts was founded in 1977 by naval architect Jim Krogen and yacht broker Art Kadey. The trawlers are full displacement boats, economical, capable to cross oceans. The boats are built in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Boats are built to order from Krogen 39 to Krogen 58.

I think this is it “the one,”  the realistic one. It fits into a 14m berth at a marina. But really how many 14m berths are there? They jump from 12m to 15m berths. The Kadey Krogen 44AE fits into the next size up of 15m berth.
There is one less stateroom than the Kadey Krogen 44AE
One stateroom with ensuite bathroom, access to engine room
Engine room, standing room
Optional: NIAD stabliser or Wismar stabliser
Comfortable for a couple.
Writing area in pilot house or at dining table in Saloon
Great elevated visibility from pilothouse
Kadey Krogen trawlers hold their value

Doesn’t fit into a 12m berth
Kadey Krogen trawlers hold their value
closed-cell PVC sandwich core above the waterline
One engine

The Queen’s Chain

What is a Chain?
It is a unit of measurement, a chain length, one hundred links made up one chain length, equivalent to 20.1m in metric length.

In New Zealand roads were traditionally the width of one chain within the cities, and between cities or large towns, three chains wide. Property was commonly divided into quarter acre sections and these were measured in lengths of chain, 1 x 2.5 chains.

What is the Queen’s Chain?
In New Zealand the Queen’s Chain is the length of one chain(20m) from the high tide mark towards the the centre of a body of water, lake, river and foreshore. This area between the high tide mark and the body of water is public land. At low tide anyone can legally access the narrow strip of land between low and high tide to get to where they are going. It is not trespassing. Note: there are some areas of land in New Zealand which are privately owned land where the Queen’s Chain does not apply.

What are Riparian Rights?
Riparian rights is ownership of a body of water to halfway, to the centre of a river and/or to the centre of a lake. Where there are multiple owners with riparian rights then the body is divided into wedges like pizza slices. Riparian rights only cover lakes and rivers. There are no riparian rights along a foreshore in New Zealand.

Riparian rights allow the owner to use the body of water for recreational pursuits such as swimming, fishing or boating, the right to take water for domestic use and for stock.
