I have recently been sent details on a couple of old girls that look like they need a home &/or some love.
The photo above was sent in by Murray Deeble & in his words is ‘currently pretending to be a dairy cow & needs saving as she has quite a history’. Just what that history is, Mr Deeble has not disclosed, so can any woody enlighten us? She is located at Kakaramea, in South Taranaki (near Patea).
The vessel below, we are told is a 1930’s kauri built launch that has been sitting in a dry shed for the last 10 years as an unfinished project. Her interior has been gutted out & there is no engine. Sadly as a result of a deceased estate she is available for the sum of $1. Pick up is ex Wiri in Auckland. From the photos we can see there is a nice hull – anyone looking for a project or some kauri? Thanks to Greg Skinner for the head up.
