Classic Wooden Boats At Waikawa Marina

Following on from last Mondays story where we shared Dean Wright’s recent Southern trip and a gallery of photos from the Havelock marina todays photo gallery comes to us from the Waikawa marina. Some stunning woodys and remember – click on photos to enlarge 😉

A lot of woodys that are new to WW and they will morph into WW stories in their own right.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Lot of familiar “faces” there, including my father’s last boat “Palomino”, Bob Swanson built as Mark McLaughlin notes. We did a fair few miles in her round the Sounds, Durville etc.
