WAIRANGI

Wairangi has appeared before on ww (link below) but has recently had a big dose of TLC. The above photos are a mix of some taken by owner Owen Foster* while anchored at Rakino Island & mine that show her over Easter anchored in Man o War Bay, Waiheke Island. The newly varnished cabin/wheelhouse looks stunning & combined with a lot of other work, she looks very special – in fact I would be happy to call her mine 🙂

Also looking very smart in one of the photos is Safari, her owner Neil took the below photo of Raindance during the Sunday afternoon squall that hit the bay mid afternoon – rain, hail, wind = boats dragging their anchor all over the bay – fun & games but no damage.

  1. Yay. She is one of my faves again. The large slab of white makes her look refined ladylike and loved again. So much for previous reports that the teak was too far gone to carry on…. Now for a couple of pole masts……

    I think she actually looks 100% better varnished. (Even tho i may I be struck down with lightning)
