Homeward bound at the end of a days charter fishing. Taken in the Tauranga harbour entrance with the Kaimai range in the distance and Matakana island on the tide line.
This boat has been working out of Tauranga for decades. I spent many hours on board on dozens of club dive trips scuba diving the local reefs. In those days she was a reasonable sea boat into the rough weather but a bit of a pig with a large following sea. Hard work for the skipper.
