Centaurus Has A Birthday
WW readers will recall that in late 2019 Angus Rogers purchased the
1967 1968 Bailey & Sons built bridge-decker Centaurus. After an extended summer cruise she was hauled out at Okahu Bay for a serious overhaul of her systems and to bring her presentation up to the Rogers standard. Last Friday she was eased back into the water (got to love that tractor unit) looking very sharp. One of the additions was a bow and stern water jet thruster set-up, very impressive piece of kits and remarkably quiet. More photos of the project soon.
It will be a shoes off inspection for those woodys doing the Stillwater Woody picnic cruise next Saturday (26th) – I’d better ensure she gets a prime spot on the wharf 😉
The jet thruster is from Sopac Marine, it has the advantage of not requiring a large tunnel through the bow on traditionally built craft, and doesnt sound like a concrete mixer full of bolts.
Keen to learn more about the bow and stern water jet thruster set-up……
Looking very smart Angus
Great to see. Congrats
Well done Angus
