I have been contacted by Rob Watt who is wondering if any of the woodys may know what happened to his old boat Aquarius.
She was a 27’ kauri built, with pohutukawa stringers. Some thought it was built in 1928 and may be a Logan.
At the time she was powered by a 60hp Isuzu diesel and around her home port of Tauranga harbor, where she was nicknamed the ‘Flying Pencil’. Rob kept Aquarius at the Sulphur Point Marina & sold her some years ago to a couple who were going to use it on Lake Taupo.
Rob told me that his family spent many a happy time on her when his kids were little and made memorable fishing trips out to Mayor Island.
So woodys, can we help Rob out & uncover what became of Aquarius & possibly some insight into who built her etc?
