Someone told me today that alot of folks up in northland and north island generally on the coast own small beach houses nicknamed a "batch". Is he winding me up or is this true, and is it just a shed like tho ones here or something different? Just wondering thats all.

Also whilst talking beach talk, if i buy a trailer sailer (small yatch on a trailer) and want to launch it in the sea for the day/weekend, do i have to register or pay any fees etc?

Maybe posted this in the wrong section i know.
