Acquiesce – Garage Sale


Acquiesce 1

I have been contacted by Robin Fullerton who owned Acquiesce that came to grief on Auckland’s waterfront breakwater during a recent storm. The story of her final days was well covered on ww.
Now like so many (too many) classics, Acquiesce was under insured & Robin is faced with having to sell all the good bits off her to help fund the replacement boat.
Below is an inventory of what Robin saved before the hull went to the land-fill. Ideally Robin would like to move on as one lot, and that the would be reflected in price, so woodys if you or someone you know has a project on the go – maybe this lot or parts of it would be of use. The 7 matching brass portals alone must be of interest to someone, I wouldn’t like to guess what they would cost new.
Robin can be contacted on  09 629 3857, txt 027 227 50 44

Including the new owner of NIADE,the sistership bridgedecker,that is having a makeover at Te Atatu yard, A pleasure to look over,still with the original brass name plaque,and will now have Acquiesces mast stepped,so i guess a bit of adopted history will still float down the harbour,I am trying to locate a length of studlink chain to upgrade my mooring if any member can assist would be most appreciated up to around 17ft or so,Many thanks once again for all the support, not forgotten, kind regards Robin.
