“It floats”, posted Scott Perry on Facebook on 19 December, one of the longer days in his life.

Mr Perry had just launched the partially restored former Harbour Defence Motor Launch KUPARU in Helensville, an 18-month-long project taken on to rebuild himself as much as rebuilding the badly rotted motor launch.
What a heart-warming story!

Thanks for posting it Brian.

Best of luck to Mr Perry in his efforts to prolong the life of this valuable piece of RNZN history.
