AROHIA – A Peek Down Below
Given that in the first photo above the A-class keeler, Arohia is flying a Logan flag I assume that she is a Logan design, odd that her owner would leave that out of her 4sale listing……….. We do know that she was built in 1949 by Colin Wild for John Seabrook. The timber was supplied by Gordon Pollard on the proviso that he would get first option to buy if ever it was sold. As a result the best NZ kauri was used, hand picked by Gordon Pollard. Full length (47′) planking, triple skin kauri.
Arohia has an impressive racing history both local & off-shore & is now for sale by her owner of 34 years.
(sorry for the photo quality – that is all there was & wont be helping the sales process)
