Havoc On The Water Front
The recent stormy weather in Auckland claimed another woody at the end of last week.
Young Luca Beachman was cycling home after completing his Herald paper round on Friday and spotted the 46’ launch Ussco ‘parked’ very precariously on the Tamaki Drive break water.
Fingers crossed she was re floated with little damage, built of 4 skin kauri so should be able to withstand an oops. Can anyone update us.

INPUT EX BRETT KING – Ussco is hauled out at the hardstand at Half Moon Bay marina
Raindance Gets Some Cosmetic Surgery
For the whole time that I have owned Raindance I have been faced with a do I / don’t I situation regarding the things attached to her hull – too short to be called bilge keels and questionable efficiency as anti-roll stabilizers. All the people whose opinion I value have said get rid of them. So in a weak moment last week at the Slipway Milford I said yes and wham-mo they were gone.
Will be interesting to see / experience the difference…………………
