Pottering Round The Port


After lying for some months on the reclamation, many of the logs shipped to Japan in the Daisen recently were found to contain a grub and all affected had to have the bark stripped from them. This killed the bug.


The harbour board's new administrative building close to the slipway and McGlashen Quay is well on the way to completion.


After its overhaul, the suction dredge Karitea had to have its suction ladder re-installed - no easy job when it weighs 12 ton and has to be manoeuvred into a very small space. With the help of a very high tide and a crane, however, the job didn't prove difficult.
