The "new" Trust Porirua Rescue: Refurbishment almost completeThe "new" Trust Porirua Rescue: Refurbishment almost complete

The replacement for Coastguard Mana's aging Waveney rescue boat, Trust Porirua Rescue, has come one step closer to Mana while it is being refurbished by Coastguard New Zealand. It is now in Wanganui for the finishing touches and a crew will be travelling up to Wanganui in early February 2010 to bring it down.

On loan from Coastguard New Zealand while funding for a new rescue vessel is sought, the 12.5m Protector will be a welcome asset to Coastguard Mana to improve our response times and overall performance. With this vessel we hope that the local boaties - both recreational and commercial, will feel safer in the knowledge that we can get to them quickly and efficiently and that when we do get there we can provide assistance safely for everyone involved.
