HOW MANY MORE SUMMERS WILL YOU LET SLIP BY WITHOUT A BOAT ………

Waitematawoodys has a sister  – its called the Wooden Boat Bureau and we sell classic wooden boats – launches, yachts, big and small. We like to fly under the radar, as do most of our clients. Someone asked me what I did the other day – below sums it up (sounds a bit fluffy, in reality I just sell boats.

Inform and enthuse interest in the joys of owning and sailing traditional and classic wooden boats. And we do this by promoting partnerships between the boats, the sellers and the buyers, for the benefit of all. At the end of the day – its all about the boats, as most will out live their current owners.

IRENE – A Peek Down Below

Back in Feb 2016 I did a brief story on the 39’ Orams launch – Irene, based on a photo that Pam Cundy from the Whangateau boat yard snapped while cruising at Great Barrier Island. WW link to story below

Irene was built in 1955, is 39’4” long with a beam of 10’9” and draws 3’3”. Powered by twin Ford (Lees Marine) 75hp diesels she has a top speed of 10 knots.
At the time of the last story I ‘commented’ about Irene’s penthouse.
Below are a couple of penthouse interior photos, I have always wondered what goes on up there on these boats………. And a very crude photo of her with a top chop 🙂

Dargaville Woody Launch Race
 
 Over Easter the Northern Wairoa Boating Club held their annual race day, with entries from Helensville, Pahi and Te Kopuru.
In the above above ex Dave Stanaway – we see Florence, Irene + various boats, including a ketch rigged scow type named Marlin.
Dave reports every had a great day out on the water and would like to thank Steve on his launch Rodney for the hospitality.
As always with these events the race was followed in the evening by a very friendly prize giving / get together.
