JEANETTE

Jeanette was built in 1914 by Lane & Brown, she measures 30’ LOA , with a beam of 7’9” & draft 2’6”. Power comes from a 73hp Nissan SD23 diesel engine, that allows her to cruise at 7-8 knots.
Presently moored at Sandspit / Kawau, her trademe listing states that she is a part of Northland History. What that means we do not know, hopefully some of the woodys & supply more intel on her past.

Harold Kidd Input – Well she was at Tutukaka for years then at Taipa. She may have been built by T.M. Lane & Sons at Mechanics Bay but not by Lane & Brown at Whangaroa who dissolved their partnership around 1902. T.M. Lane & Sons transferred their launch-building to Mechanics Bay in 1905 after they built SLIM JIM.

  2. I can’t find any trace of boatbuilders who might have filled the vacuum at Totara North after the Lanes’ launch construction moved to Auckland leaving their mill there for timber supply for the lucrative Auckland market. A HORO was owned by Nixon of the Thames in 1905 but she was built as a 26ft mullet boat by Bailey & Lowe in 1903. Same boat?? At least one NGAPUHI was built for T.E. Owen of Auckland in 1905 but I can’t figure out who built her.

  3. Who were the builders who remained at totara? I imagine the Horo and many others were worked on or modified there, and wasnt the Ngapuhi built there too?
