You would not believe that this boat is 111 years old. Launched in 1901 at he Logan yard.
I held a friend's hand while he did the deal. We had a close scrutiny of the MOERANGI built using the triple skin system perfected by the Logans for their well known racing yachts, many of which still sail and race in the Hauraki Gulf today.
Launched originally as a schooner with a 20 hp motor to tow fishing boats out of a South Island port. Later was a ferry boat on Port Chalmer's waters,fishing boat and trawler, ending up as a charter fishing boat.
55ft by 12ft6in and 22 ton powered now by a 90hp 5L3 Gardner diesel and 2:1 Gardner gearbox. 8 lt/hr at 8 knts.
