The end of the Rehu Moana
After reading Ian Hawks memories of Prouts boatbuilding on Canvey and the Catamarans, Alan wrote in with an update of what happened to the Rehu Moana. Alan writes:
“Good to see the old girl still gets around, I was the last owner of Rehu Moana, we bought her in 1979 when we found her rotting on a beach in Cornwall and spent two years refitting her, sadly she was lost in a storm in 1982.”
At the base of this page are a few pics of Rehu Moana including the shipwreck.
Alan continues “I am disabled now and can no longer sail, but I did build a model of her for the sailing simulator ‘Virtual Sailor’ (See below)”. Alan’s website is Millennium Dock
