Arawa – What Do We Know About This Woody

ARAWA – WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THIS WOODY


Recently I was contacted by Manuel Cunha, advising he had purchased an ex 38’ crayfish boat named Arawa, which he believes was built in 1956 in Whangaroa. For the last 20 odd years Arawa has been standing on a farm in Auckland. Can any of the work boat crew enlighten us / Manuel as to her past.


LADY KAY – WHERE IS SHE. I have been contacted about the launch – Lady Kay, a twin screw motor cruiser built by Elkins and Son in 1938. If it still exists a previous owner has various bits including the compass binnacle that he would like to pass on to the currant owner.
