Whats Happening With Katoa

WHATS HAPPENING WITH KATOA

The launch Katoa wallowed on tme for a very long time, great bones, crying out for a woody to rescue her and return her to as launched condition.Things have gone very quite – would love to think that she has been purchased and there replans for a re-fit.
Can anyone update us?

Input from Annie Bryce – my partner and I have bought Katoa in March this year, fell in love with her lines and history we are in the process of moving down to South Island and are looking at putting Katoa on the hard in spring for a good over haul inside and out will post some photos of that process. Last year we bought the launch Arcturus and have nearly finished her makeover

  2. HI Billy Bob, Have known ARCTURAS from new, saw her being built by McGeady, at 1A Summer St Ponsonby & my dad Ralph Ricketts bought her original engine, a 4 cyl Buda Diesel, off original owner John Warren in 1956 — KEN R
