MY GIRL & LUCINDA
WOODY EASTER WEEKEND AT KAWAU ISLAND
Today’s photo gallery of woodys comes to us from the camera’s (phones) of Jason Prew and Nathan Herbert and were taken over Easter weekend in and around Kawau Island. Boats featured are Jason’s – My Girl, Nathan’s – Pacific, Peter & Jenni Mence’s – Eileen Patricia, Jason & Yan Davies – Lucinda. Plus cameo appearance from Paul Tinghy’s yacht -Wotan and Madeline Rundle’s launch Hami (previously Wanda / Wanda II).
Lucinda was built in 1930 by LC Coulthard and has just been re-launched after undergoing some running repairs at The Slipway Milford. Work included re-powering – out went the 50hp Perkins and in went a 100hp Isuzu, giving her a top speed now of 14>15 knots.
Great weekend away, cool people and nice boats!
Question- what is the name/ history of the 36ish foot white bridgedecker which waved to me in Mansion House Bay? Jaunty sheer, tall bridge etc. Perhaps moors at Scotts landing area?
Not many classics around except the recently renovated jobbies.. do the ‘patina’ classics only get used for half days of fishing nowadays?
Could have been worse eg wonton. AH
