If anybody has ever wanted to own a piece of NZ Naval History, now is the time check out on Trade Me listed under 15m boats HDML PAEA.
This vessel needs to be saved ( just like the aircraft) and looked after as her present owners have done for the last 10 yrs. She is a floating Museum just like HDML KUPARU. They DON'T make them like this anymore nor do they the Harvards, Spits etc.
There are only FOUR left( out of 16) in NZ that are still being used one is even in Survey at Milford Sounds.
If you want to know more PM me to discuss or give me your details and I can pass them on to the owner of this great piece of Naval Maritime History...
