We took over the hire car today: a small Nissan . Allowed us to get into town easily to find that the part for the autopilot needs to come from Europe and that high pressure water hose hasn't reached NZ yet . Still better is that the engineers here hope to be able to make us the autopilot part. The weather is very unsettled so we couldn't leave in any case and NZ is a wonderful place to be stranded
