Te Kowhai

Te Kowhai


Todays story features the game boat Te Kowhai coming in to the wharf at Russell to weigh their catch.

Can anyone tell us more about the boat & what became of her – she is a very pretty launch.

  1. That’s nothing; in the Squadron’s records alongside Fred Reynolds’ membership she was either KOWHIA or TE KOWHIA from 1946 to 1951 when they got it right.
    Also, there was another KOWHAI around in 1939, the Dick Lang launch that Charles Palmer bought after WW2 put a cruiser stern on and renamed LADY ADELAIDE.


  2. Designed and built by J.G. Cox with a 6-95 Lycoming for Fred Reynolds in 1939. In NAPS in 1943 as Z42.
