Rakanoa, Altair & Kotanui
Its not often that we see a photo of Rakanoa underway, the above 2 photos came to us via Nathan Herbert & are part of Gwenyth Herberts collection. Taken by Jack and Mill Hobbs in the the late 1960’s.
From the same collection, below we have the 43′ Altair at sea in March 1968, while owned by Stan Horner, Altair was built for Horner by Supreme Craft in 1961. More details & photos here https://waitematawoodys.com/2015/12/05/altair/
And another photo, from the same date, shows Kotanui berthed at Westhaven, anyone able to ID the other vessel’s?
