Auckland Steam Engine Society Warkworth steamboat event

Two weeks ago we had our Steam event at Warkworth, on the Mahurangi River. Due to various boats being apart for rebuilds we were a bit short of boats this year, having only four attending, three working each day. Paul Gilbert very kindly took pictures of the boats and they can be seen at:

We also had the societies trailerable boiler working on the wharf, and various engines on display. Hopefully this is of interest to some....
