Description

Mick Burden took out a number of groups on the day he launched the boat, including campers from Burden’s Camp.  Peter Burden commented that his dad sought permission to use the name “Moananui” from the local Maori chief, Te Moananui. All of Mick’s seven children had a turn at helping build the launch.
