Wooden Boating VIP On The Waitemata
The above photos of Rangiora, on Lake Rotorua, were sent in by Lesley Parker. Lesley commented that the gent standing in the dinghy next to the boat, looks like her grandfather – George Gregory, but the gent with the fish in the other photo is not him. Lesley thinks that this chap appears again in the photo where the duo are boiling a billy on the beach.

Looking For A Woody?
Two classic woodys have recently come on the market – one best described as a ‘rolling restoration’ & the other a ‘turn-key’ craft. The asking prices reflect their for presentation.
Lady Noeleen is a 32’, 1952 Dick Lang built bridge decker that now sports a small-is flying bridge. I nice boat for someone looking for a not to hard project. If I bought her I’d be borrowing Jason Prew’s tungsten tipped chainsaw & removing you know what 😉
You can view more on her at this WW link.
Waiari is a 36’, 1962 Owen Woolley seden cruiser, just screaming out for someone looking to go classic boating – now ! Her owner has moved up to a much bigger woody.
Again more on her at this WW link.

Rotorua Woodys + Goodsons Trucking
Harold Kidd Input –
The 28 footer MOOSE was built by Collings & Bell for Noel Cole of Moose Lodge, Rotoiti in February 1939. It looks like she was railed to Rotorua and taken by Goodsons’ Ford V8 truck to Rotoiti. Her engine (unknown but probably a Gray, like BETTY’s) was right aft and used a Vee drive, then a novelty in NZ, the layout designed by H. C. Meikle.The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh used her when they stayed with (Sir) Noel at Moose Lodge.
