Riwaka Waterfront Walkabout

Riwaka Waterfront Walkabout

Following on from Sundays story on Matahorua the sailing cutter tied up at the Riwaka river / estuary , today we follow the camera of Tim and Pauline Evill as they explore the craft that call Riwaka their home ‘port’.

A fine collection of woodys, all appearing to be well loved – if you had the Riwaka agency for marine varnish , you wouldn’t remain in business for long 🙂

Enjoy the stroll

  2. Don R, yes it is the Ponui.
    The boat with the bow spirit is the Marina. It was built locally by Pollard, and is a hard chine.

  3. Is the boat with a white tarp partially covering the wheel house the 1907 Logan Launch Ponui? Built to service the island of the same name, but has spent time in commercial service with the Napier Harbour Board, Lake Taupo, then Queen Charlotte Sound and lastly Abel Tasman National Park.

  4. The boat in the second group of pics looks to be one of the many built to the lines of Slocum’s “Spray”.
    I’m guessing that the little motor sailer with the big bowsprit is a Hartley Tasman – or did I detect the trace of a hard chine??
