I took the above photos of Wainui at the weekend, moored off Bayswater Marina. Going by the posts on ww, Wainui was a popular name for a boat (maori = a small seabird). She looks well cared for & the hose (bilge) out the starboard porthole is a sign that her owner cares about her.
What do we know about this one?

She’s not one of the two other WAINUIs that have featured on WW but just could be the Arthur Forrester-built WAINUI which has been on the Kaipara all her life. Zach should know. There were several more WAINUIs too.

Jack Martin of Dargaville had her for years then sold to Westlake family and kept at Tinopai. Photos below
