Happy New Year + Kewpie


Well good riddance to 2020, while it was a great year for WW, most of us have been impacted in some way by CV-19 and the lock-downs.Fingers crossed that we do not see another wave hit our shores.Now putting all that to one side  – I hope you all saw the new year ‘in’ in-style and are not to dusty today.

We have been mooching around Waiheke Island tucking in out of the wind. Had some stunning days, so are very glad we made the call to head out, otherwise I’d be at home moaning about the weather – sometimes you just have to go 🙂

Todays woody story is the old workboat – Kewpie, did many years on the Waitemata Harbour as one of the legendary – Blue Boats, servicing the inner islands.These days you will find her on Tauranga Harbour doing day trips. So woodys if you are down that way – shop local and support kiwi businesses – take a tour.

Special thanks to Thomas Guthrie for the photos

Input and photos below from Cameron Pollard – KEWPIE was never one of Aucklands “blue boats”. She was part of the well known Fullers Bay of Islands fleet.
Did a stint as a charter boat operating out of Westhaven for a while and also Tauranga.
