Mason Bay

The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

Kitenui is one of our 'K' keelers. This one has just been bought by a local couple and needed a tow up from Algies Bay about 50nm south. She has been neglected and had been on her mooring for a few years.The tow was tough with mussels on her bottom.We were not the only tow on the coast- this tug and barge passed us, we were doing 4.5kts I guess they were a knot faster as they took a couple of hours to pass us.The weather was kind and we had a lovely window in the middle of winter...
