Need to Transport a boat from Taihape to Methven (Christchurch)


Hello All :)

I just arrived in NZ and am heading to the Bliss-Stick Factory to make a kayak. I am wondering if anyone is passing through Taihape (near the Bliss-Stick factory) on Friday evening Saturday or Sunday and has room for a body and a boat? I only have a paddle and one small bag with me as my gear was lost by the airlines on route :D

Alternatively, if you only have room for the kayak I can bus ferry train it and you can drop the boat at my friend's in Methven or she can meet you to pick it up from you in Christchurch ...

All other options and or suggestion appreciated :)

Of course there will be beer wine or gas $$$ offered up for your trouble :D
