Waione At The 2022 Mahurangi Regatta


WW has followed the restoration / refit of the 32’ launch Waione since 2016, links below to the 3 stories tracking her progress.

Current custodian is Daniel Taylor, the 3rd generation family member to enjoy Waione. Daniel and his father Steve, have been at the helm of the 20 year project.

While mooching around the Mahurangi regatta I spotted Waione at anchor – she looked very impressive and I’m sure Daniel’s late grandparents, Jack and Missy McCabe – would approve 🙂 

Daniel shared the photos below from the launch day and her sliding into her temporary waterfront home for final fit out.
