Help save the 1943 HDML HMNZS Kuparu. I have found her in a neglected state and need help to save her.

I need help to save this 1943 Historical naval launch. She has been sitting on the hard for too many years when I found her, and I plan to save her, have her in the water and used again. I have started on her, got the engines running, removed all of the torn damp tarps off , and made a open tent for her to dry out.

I lost my wife to cancer on the 11th June this year after her 5 1/2 year battle. Leaving me and our two beautiful daughters 11 & 13 devastated. So this is the project to help me get through this difficult time in our lives.

I cant do this alone, I need help, the sooner she is done, the sooner she is in the water.

No summer boating  17 January 2020

Hi All. I managed to wreck my Knee just before Christmas. So no summer boating updates sorry. Also no work either with a leg up resting.

The attached Picture was from her Navy days, in the Dockyard shed after a tiddly up from probably 100 men, or more. Oh to have those resources now!
