photos & details from Brian Candy
Retired commercial fisherman, Brian Candy told ww that his friend, Michael Hayes, who owns ‘Leilani’, which was Bill Hall’s first game fishing boat, has been trying to find out more on the history of her. They believe that Leilani was built by Tabbet and Cardot but that is all Michael has been able to find out.
Michael has spent a lot of money on her over the last ten years rebuilding and upgrading her to her former glory. Michael uses her for big game fishing and cruising & she is based at Whangaroa.
If any woodys can come up with some history on her, both Brian & Michael would be very grateful.
