Fiesta

FIESTA – B.O.I.

Dean Wright sent in the above photo of the launch – Fiesta. Dean commented that she has lived at Waipiro Bay, Bay of Islands for a while now. The ‘hothouse almost gets a WW tick, very nice proportions, colour and design. In fact if the owner contacts me – waitematawoodys@gmail.com  I’ll give them a WW T-shirt. I’ll need some proof of ownership – eg more photos / details:-)

What do we know about her?

Heads up, don’t get confused with the 31′ sedan topper, built in 1964 by Phillip Lang, also named Fiesta, that lives on the Panmure River. Details on that one at the WW link below https://waitematawoodys.com/2016/01/07/mystery-launch-4/

DESTINY
photos ex Dean Wright

Professional photographer Dean Wright & owner of the classic 1927 Bob Brown built launch Arethusa, sent me the above photos of Destiny at anchor in Waipiro Bay, Bay of Islands last weekend. Dean did a couple of circle around her in Arethusa.

Any of the work boat woodys out there able to shed some light on her past? She is a rather large woody & I assume now retired.
