Looking for a Woody + Stop Auckland Council Stealing More of OUR Harbour

Looking For A Woody?

Two classic woodys have recently come on the market – one best described as a ‘rolling restoration’ & the other a ‘turn-key’ craft. The asking prices reflect their for presentation.

Lady Noeleen is a 32’, 1952 Dick Lang built bridge decker that now sports a small-is flying bridge. I nice boat for someone looking for a not to hard project. If I bought her I’d be borrowing Jason Prew’s tungsten tipped chainsaw & removing you know what 😉

You can view more on her at this WW link.

Waiari is a 36’, 1962 Owen Woolley seden cruiser, just screaming out for someone looking to go classic boating – now ! Her owner has moved up to a much bigger woody.

Again more on her at this WW link.

  1. You can thank the International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) Code for that one. A product of the post 9/11 world we live in & a requirement for any commercial port taking foreign flagged vessels.

  2. Thanks for that info. I’ve unknowingly pottered in and out around the wharves in boats for nearly a lifetime without hindrance, especially in the times when we had proper ships visiting our harbour.

  3. I have never before heard of a ‘Port security and customs area’ blanking off our wharves with a wide exclusion zone for most craft. Does anyone have more information?

  4. I am in support of no further reclamations but sorry to point out that the proposed mooring dolphins appear to be inside the Port Security and Customs Area which is a no go zone for any unauthorised vessels, including yachts racing which many do to minimise a flood tide sweeping round the container wharf. So, no doubt, Panuku will use this to steamroll over any objections.

  5. Also secret city council plans to build an unwanted future stadium over the water will involve hundreds of thousands of tons of filling-in of a massive area of our harbour.
    This plan must not proceed under any circumstance when there are several better on-land options for a stadium.
