South Sea vagabonds

South Sea vagabonds

In 1933 a young unemployed Aucklander, Johnny Wray, built a 35-foot cutter in his back yard. He found material for the boat, Ngataki, all over the Hauraki Gulf. The story of his subsequent cruising in the Pacific, South Sea vagabonds (1939), made him a romantic hero.
