Pania – What Became Of Her

PANIA – What Became Of Her

In the above photo we see the launch – Pania, towing a lifeboat from the Wahine to safety. The photo is dated 11-04-1968

Any know what became of Pania, is she still in the Wellington area? (photo ex Lew Redwood fb)

To read more on the Wahine sinking, that on the day took the lives of 51 people – see link https://waitematawoodys.com/2018/04/09/nereides-the-wahine-sinking/

Input from Chris Manning – I believe Pania is alive and well and in regular use as the Committee Boat for Evan’s Bay Yacht Club in Wellington. Has been since the 90s

  1. She’s still a duty boat for the Evans Bay Yacht and Motor Boat Club. There’s an excellent chapter on all the club support boats over the years in the Club’s centennial book (if I do say so myself) 🙂
