Dauntless – A Peek Down Below

Dauntless – A Peek Down Below

Recently Dauntless popped up on tme as a project boat that failed to progress to actually being a project.She was possibly built by Lanes in 2027, but this is unconfirmed and there is a lot of chat in the comments section of WW in a past story 2013 WW story – link here https://waitematawoodys.com/2013/06/03/dauntless/

Powered by a Isuzu diesel – that is just about all we know.

  2. That was not the Dauntless that fished down South island originally built as liberty boat for NZ Navy


  3. Does anybody know of the good ship reflections of Wellington a 37 ft Brambling by May built by Phil Sissons that took off a few years ago last heard of in Greace. David Muir. Lowry Bay YC Wellington


  4. A sad story. While we had Moana Lua on the slip at Lanes Tamaki River in 1994 for a 3 month refit, Dauntless was also out after sinking alongside Lanes wharf.
    A retired couple from the Waikato, I believe, had purchased her with a recommendation she did not require a marine survey, as she had given 70 years of good service already! She was a mess underfloor and the Lanes bill to semi-rectify the problems resulted in the owners walking away. Lanes subsequently sold her to a younger couple, [Jony Black, from memory] to recoup their costs.
