Kowai was spotted on the hard at Half Moon Bay las week by Alan McDonald. She lives up the Tamaki River at Panmure, on piles.
Thats all we know about her – so can any woody supply more details? One of the river rats must know the boat.
Input from Peter Morton (ex Ken Ricketts)
Help needed – I have been contacted by Kerry Costello with a question. I’ll let Kerry tell it.
“Recently I found a small wooden sailing dinghy (below) at an op shop – unintentionally – and now I’m trying to piece her together and get her in the water. I really want to find out what the make and model is. My partner and I are taking the paint off and want to fix her up nice – figure out the correct paint, put fiber glass on the seams and a of couple dents, and find a mast for her!
It seems that knowing the make and model would be helpful in finding the right mast. I’ve looked on trade me and someone told me that the lumber yard might mill one for me? But it seems that finding a used one would be more appropriate than anything else; using something made by a boat builder rather than milled by someone who doesn’t know boats. So as I said before any advice that you can give me would be so so appreciated.”
So woodys, can we ID the yacht design & any chance someone as an old mast in the garage rafters ?
