The ridge on the far right is Dorset View from Girdlestone (1,m), west along Dorset Ridge to Mount Crawford (1,m). I can confirm the presence of a Black Hole slightly to the west of Kapiti Island. It is the only feasible explanation, after tracking three fronts across the Tasman that suddenly parked themselves on top of kayaker until he quit.

Mr Cholewa said the plane had no emergency locator transmitter but the pilot would have been carrying a personal locator beacon.
