What Happened To Kiwa

What Happened To Kiwa

Back in Sept. 2014 Russell Ward gave us a heads up about the classic ex work-boat – Kiwa being transported from Hokianga to Auckland, sadly we never uncovered where she went or much about her. Yesterday hunting for a photo of a boat, I found an untitled folder with the photos above of Kiwa, but no details on where or when they were taken. 

Can we assume she made it to Auckland and underwent a restoration? If so where is she these days? Link to the 2014 WW story below
