Bill Hamilton, nāna te waka kōpana i hanga

I pakeke a Bill Hamilton ki tētahi pāmu i te ikawhenua o Te Wai Pounamu. Mai anō i tana tamarikitanga i akiakina a ia kia kimi oranga mōna i ngā raruraru tērā ka tūpono i te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao. Ka whakatūria e ia he hēte hei mahi mīhini mō ngā hanganga nui i runga i ana hoahoa waipēhi. I te tekau tau atu i 1950 ka auahatia e ia he mīhini kōpana wai, te takenga mai o ngā waka kōpana. Taea ai e ēnei waka te haere i ngā wai pāpaku rawa ki ētahi atu waka. Ka hau te rongo ki te ao mō ana mīhini kōpana.
