AREA AT OKAHU BAY

USE BY PLEASURE CRAFT

Part of the area now being reclaimed at Okahu Bay under the Auckland Harbour Board's eastern boat harbour scheme is to be made available for *the hauling-out of yachts early in the coming season.

The engineer and superintendent of the board, Mr. D. Holderness, said to-day that while the board did not intend to have the whole scheme completed ahead of schedule, it had been decided to fill in certain parts of the proposed ten-acre reclamation for the immediate use of yachtsmen.

This would entail no new work, but the pumping would be concentrated in smaller areas, easy of access. The material being dredged •and pumped into the area contained a good proportion of sand and settled and solidified quickly, said Mr. Holderness.

The board's decision will allow boat owners living in the eastern suburbs to haul out their craft nearer home, and will obviate the necessity of passing through the boom defences on the way upharbour.

The full scheme embraces a boat harbour of 106 acres, with depths of up to 12 feet, and a reclaimed area of 10 acres. Three acres of this area are to be set aside for hauling-out sites, with a space for dinghy lockers, and an area of. 700 feet by 70 feet for clubhouses. There is also to be a park of three acres.
