KAIURUNGA – Workboat Wednesday
She is an ex-Westport Harbour Board pilot boat. The name Kaiurunga means ‘highest cloud’.
Rumour has it she has done a lap of New Zealand and often crossed the Cook Straight.
Zoom zoom is via a 95hp Perkin diesel motor that has her cruising at around 7 knots.
Her trademe listing (thanks Ian McDonald) tells us her current owner has had her for a year and is unable to finish the project. While looking a little ‘work-in-progress’ there has been a lot of time & money spent on her & she would make a good low cost live aboard / tiny house-boat.
Home port is Mana, Wellington.
