MANUITI
Today’s photos of Manuiti come to us from Malcolm Campbell.
Manuiti was owned by his uncle, Colin Jenkins, son of Lestock Jenkins (owner of Mahino, see Tuesdays WW story) ) one of Malcolm’s mothers brother’s.
Colin had Manuiti moored in the Clevedon River. Malcolm believes he had a Fordson engine.
The photos were given to Malcolm by his uncle, Colin, taken when he owned Manuiti.
Anyone know what became of the launch and who designed / built her?
Input from Harold Kidd – There are/were several MANU-ITIs. I think it was this one that was on TradeMe in 2010 as a 36ft bridgedecker built “by Lanes in 1920″….ummm maybe?
Another MANU-ITI, possibly the same boat, was owned by C.E. Stewart in 1941-43 with a 50hp Lycoming. Another was owned by G.D. Matthews of Devonport in 1957….and so on.

24-05-2019 Input from Neil Chalmers – I recall in the early 1960’s ‘Manu iti’  was owned by Henry Lee of Rawhitiroa Road, Kohimarama . His brother Ken Lee had the Owen Woolley built ‘Avalon’ .

24-05-2019 Input from Malcolm Campbell – Colin brought the MANUITI  June 1977 from Te Atatu & sold her March > April  1985. She went to Thames. She had full length kauri planks…  Built by Lanes ??? in the late 1920’s  early  1930’s..????     Colin then brought the SAN VALLEM June 1985 & sold her May 1988….

  1. This looks like the Manuiti that my father owned from the mid 60’s to the mid 70’s. At that time it had a 60hp Fordson engine. She was moored in Shoal Bay and was hauled out at the boatyard there for her regular maintenance. I would also be interested on where she is now. Harold Gratton
