Around The Yards – Adonis
I received an invite to poke my nose into the Leader Boat Builders shed on the Panmure / Tamaki River during the week to catch up on the latest woody to grace Dave Patterson’s shed. The 45’ Owen Woolley built Adonis, in for some serious TLC. Meet her owner of many years, John Fleming and got to discuss the planned work. We will catch up again on Adonis and update with more detail. You can read and see a lot more at this link to a previous WW story https://waitematawoodys.com/2017/09/04/adonis/
I have said it many times before but one of the coolest classic wooden boating entities is the Off Center Harbor website. A day wouldn’t you by without me pointing someone to the site, and they always find a solution, answer, guidance to what they needed / wanted to know.
On the site there are 800+ videos about wooden boats. And woodys best of all most of the content is informative, educational and entertaining. The Off Center Harbor team are celebrating their 10th anniversary and have an amazing offer for WW woodys – TEN months membership for US$10* – (normally US$49/year). CLICK THIS LINK https://www.offcenterharbor.com/join-10th-anniversary-10-10-month-2021-holiday-ww/ And because they like us Kiwis, when renewal time comes around, all NZ memberships will be in NZ dollars, so we don’t have to suffer from the unfavorable gap in the exchange rate.
