Kokoru – A Sneak Peek

KOKORU – A Sneak Peek

Almost 2 years ago the Wooden Boat Bureau found a new owner for the 1960, 40’Jack Morgan designed and built launch Kokoru. At the time she was calling Picton home and her new owners bought her north to Auckland and almost immediately hauled her out and into a shed. Kokoru was a very well maintained boat and in great presentation – but plans were afoot.

Yesterday I got a peek at the project – still a few bits and pieces to be signed off so today you just get to see her exterior and the new twin Yanmar 75hp engine installation (below)

The design and workmanship is faultless and very soon you’ll get to see the complete boat.

  2. IIRC in ’68 she was owned by a Russ (Somebody), the bloke she was built for who took her out to assist rescuing Wahine passengers. She got a heavy knock from a large wave which partly unseated one of her engines, bur was able to carry on.
    (The above comes into the category of “oral history” and should therefore be taken with a grain of salt ;-0 )
