Easter Weekend – Bay of Island Woodys

Easter Bay of Island Woodys
Two good looking classics out and about over the Easter long weekend – the 1920’s 34’ launch – Darleen. Read and see more at the 2016 WW story belowhttps://waitematawoodys.com/2016/05/20/darleen/And the yacht Tuahine, that we known only a little about. She made a cameo appearance in the 2018 WW story below, and Simon Smith and Harold Kidd commented about her provenance.https://waitematawoodys.com/2018/01/09/woodys-holidaying-in-the-bay-of-islands/
Speaking of good looking woodys – the 1st mate on Darleen is rather cute 🙂


Would You Buy This Boat
No names, but sometimes you have to wonder if people really think they will sell their boat when they post photos like the one below on trademe. And this was one of the better photos……………. 🙂

Woodys Holidaying In The Bay Of Islands

Todays photos are from the camera of woody Dean Wright, taken over the Xmas / NY period, I love the one on Wirihana rolling around, sent it to her skipper Chris McMullen & he commented “We were coming into the bay from Cape Brett. A nasty on the beam sea. Any boat can roll when bit by a wave. Its when they keep rolling after the event…….” Chris commented the Wirihana handled it very well. Even with a roll on, Wirihana still looks beautiful – always does, from any angle.

I have to say Marie J is looking very smart, well done to the new(ish) owners. Also what do we know about the yacht Tuahine?
