Todays photos come to us from Nathan Herbert and show a small flotilla of woodys that regularly cruised together – the boats being – Kudu, Lynmar, Kotanui, Haunui, and Valhalla. On this cruise Rakanoa was present also but had not made the trip up the river for provisions, she decided to ’stay out’ at anchor.

Built in 1948 by Colin Wild. For many years she was the Harry Julian family boat, now owned by O. Cashmore. The photos above show her hauled out at Orams yard in Westhaven last week. Given she was out at the same yard in October, I wonder whats being done.
Interesting to compare the lines of Haunui with her sister Lady Crossley & younger ‘cousin’ Trinidad.
Update from my Westhaven spies : She is getting new engines & some love from the hands of Paul Tingey.
