Haunui Restoration Update #4

Haunui Restoration Update #4

In the interest of keeping you all abreast of the process of the restoration of 1948 Colin Wild built launch – Haunui, last week I paid a visit to master craftsman Paul Tingey. It has been 8 months since my last visit (where does the time go) and Paul and his team have made big advancements on the project. At first glance – lots of glowing timber either on display or peeking out from behind masking tape, but oh boy the focus is on systems, and the team are performing magic in terms of the available space and keeping it out of sight.

Check out the anchor winch, serious bling. And at the other end of the scale – the original ships clock has been retained – we like that.

I wasn’t brave enough to ask about an estimated re-launch date – but I’ll be back well before that happens 🙂
