Bay of Islands Classic Wooden Boats
Bay of Islands WW contributor Dean Wright sent in the great photos above from when he and partner Deb were out for a few days just b4 xmas.
Dick and Colleen Fisher’s magnificent Akarana is seen anchored in Orokawa, as is Enterprise.
The photo of Shenandoah was taken by Dean as she came through Wai iti Bay, Moturua Island. I would be a little amiss if I didn’t comment on the brightwork – please someone give her the TLC she deserves.
A nice photo of the 1929 Lanes Motor Boat Co. 35’ launch – Valerie under way.
The sedan launch in the last photo is well known to me, but I just can’t recall her name…….. Nathan Herbert has advised it’s Waihora.
The photo below ex David Cooke is of Akarana heading to Te Puna Inlet yesterday, where she and Trinidad are escaping the unpleasant swells the B.O.I. are experiencing.
