REHIA – Getting Dressed
Question of the day – did Colin Wild build anything other than pretty boats?
The photos above (ex Ken Ricketts) show the 1939 Colin Wild launch Rehia hauled out recently at Gulf Harbour.
She was getting a fresh coat of paint – having last year had an extensive re-fit at the Horizon yard, her owner had allowed the seams to settle before the hero top coat.
She has to be one of the prettiest launches afloat – perfect from any angle 🙂

The photo below, ex Scott Taylor, show Rehia in her WWII livery. To read more on her, ex Harold Kidd, click this link https://waitematawoodys.com/2014/09/26/rehia-z15/

One thought on “Rehia – Getting Dressed

  1. Yep! Agree wholeheartedly that Rehia is a charm to the eye. Col Wild always did well considering the small shed in which the really big boats were built. Didn’t appear to be room to stand off and look from afar, but I may be wrong. We mustn’t lose sight of the fact that the level was high in that there were many good builders here.
