KOTARE – Sailing Sunday
I spotted Kotare (Maori = Kingfisher) last week on the grid at Rocky Bay, Waiheke Island. Her owner Don Fraser, was giving the bottom a scrub & a coat of anti-fouling.
Don commented that the yacht had spent most of her life at Waiheke, excluding a few stints on the mainland.
Don knows a little about her past owners e.g. she was owned & kept atRocky Bay in the 1970’s by retired merchant seaman Richard Powell. However Don is very light on intel re her provenance – any woodys able to help Don out?
