I watched and participated a little as this place was built, opened, came and went. The access is the big issue. There are many clubs on the south island to hop to and from, literally, on foot. This will be the only one that can't be walked to.
Dane is dead right about priority one being access if they expect to make it. It just barely caught on in the daylight when local boat owners were half or more of the patrons.
I would have 2 boats, one at each island, passing each other as the water taxis do, running lights a must. Little relatively cheap,hand held GPS units hardwired into the 12 volt battery system, would be a big plus on moonless, cloudy nights.
Then it's a simple matter of following the dotted line. Navigating the shallows around the delta shaped flats on both sides are a problem in the dark.
I see locals cut across the flats too soon on a low tide in broad daylight and get stuck.
This may sound daunting economically, but it takes money to make money. I lived on CC for a few years and I figured it might be tough to get daytime people over there, night-lifers are going to be even harder with all the more accessible options.
I wish them the best of luck, sincerely, I don't like to see anyone's hard work and ambitions fall by the wayside!
