The Tug Hauraki

The Tug Hauraki
This is the latest Auckland, New Zealand addition to the tug fleet.
Built in Changde, China she sailed all the way to New Zealand at an average speed of eight knots!

Slow boat from China!! Do the flags convey a signal?

Imagine coming all the way from China to New Zealand in this little bath tub at an average speed of eight knots! It took them a month and I'll bet it took the crew some time to lose their 'sea legs' and find their 'land legs' after THAT voyage.
