Bay Of Islands Woodys
Over the last month Bay of Islands photographer Dean Wright has sent in a selection of woodys that he has spotted in the BOI. The last two are of small launch, going past Otehei Bay, the owner is obviously very handy with rope, thats an impressive collection of fenders on display.
As always I’m vert taken with Te Honu that Brin Wilson built in 1963. Always looks a bigger boat than her specs – 34’x 10’6”. I believe she is still powered by the original 100 HP 6 cyl. Lees converted Ford diesel. You can see and read more about her here https://waitematawoodys.com/2015/08/25/te-honu/
