HAUTONGA

Todays woody is the launch Hautonga, pictured above at Warkworth, on the Mahurangi River. photos ex Ken Rickets.

Can anyone help out & supply more info on her? I have to say that her ‘upper level’ (I’m trying to be polite) looks like is was designed for Cook Strait crossings 🙂

Harold Kidd Input: “Hautonga” = South Wind (actually South was up to the Polynesians/Maoris so was “North Wind”).
No comments on her aesthetics but there was a HAUTONGA in Auckland in 1966 owned by R C Weaver of Matai Road Green Lane and in 1973 by E W Barnard of Waiata Ave.
