    Outstanding!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    After a 122-year absence from Auckland’s Waitematā Harbour, Rogue takes her first commissioning sail.

    Straight out with the big reacher eh, topsail next!
    A bit surprised to see the number, but I suppose that's her South Island heritage?

    “B4” is the result of some complex CYA/Harold Kidd consultation on historic registrations. For myself, I’m just enjoying the pun. And the prospect therefore I must name Rogue’s tender “Aft-er”.

    Rogue’s first race (with “action shots” at 0.58 and 3.38)!

    https://youtu.be/DMPq07Ua5yY

    Retired unhurt when winds exceeded forecast by some measure and I was severely overpowered (and have yet to install reefing system).

    Looks like she's standing up well, carrying her sail .

    Thank you all. Rogue’s website now sports a racing page.

    Roger Mills also compiled a Rogue-only video (https://youtu.be/4igxXIeDGV8):

    Cockpit seats given a bit more substance, and butterfly hatch receives necessary safety bars (regrettably obscuring etched glazing).

    TradeMe (NZ’s EBay) offered this oil on tinplate painting, inscribed on the obverse with “From a Rogue — To a Rogue — For the ‘Rogue’”. Given Rogue’s name changed to Muritai in 1900 on her relocation to Wellington, the painting must predate that.

    After some restoration to remove the rust, clean up (locating an additional gull) and seal the painting and fix the frame (but obverse left untouched) …

    Now relocated on board.

    Great aquisition.
    A winklemann photo of Waione came up a decade or so ago , at auction. I made it pretty clear I was going to have it and did get it , probably at a premium. But who cares.

    I have always thought that this could be Rogue.. But there are no notes or marks.

    From another worker of wood, beautiful work that has not hidden the tight places. All behind me now but I can still appreciate superlative work and results.

    If it is, it would be the only one I’ve seen with a jib topsail. But her 1900 sale included “mainsail, staysail, jib, topsail, storm jib, leading jib, and spinnaker, all in good order”, so who knows? She always looks a lot bigger in old photos.

    Somewhere we discussed Aorere and her different configurations over the years, particularly the efforts to make an old late 1880's to early 1890's boat competitive with the new gen boats and exploiting the nuances of new rules, the same as evermore to this day.
    So it wouldn't surprise me one bit if Rogue had variations in her topsails and an extra in the form of a jib topsail appearing at a stage in her life.
    But mostly just my eye, I'm sure there are other boats which may fit my photo, but of the survivors... Rogue is the frontrunner for me.

    Today is 130 years to the day since Rogue’s first sail.

    Right-most column, two-thirds the way down.

    Rogue is the Bailey; Gloriana the Logan.

    I marked the occasion with a commemorative sail.

    The tshirt is for Ted and Louis: it’s Louis’ 1929 Woollacott, Vectis, for the 2014 SF Master Mariners Regatta.

    What a gem of a boat. Thank you so much for taking Louis and I with you.

    I hope one day we get sail again with you on your lovely girl.
    Without friends none of this is possible.

    Regrettably, no; Rogue’s crew all were unavailable, so these were a couple of last-minute ring-ins to avoid only dockside commemoration.

    Taking advantage of a Christmas Eve light souwesterly, Rogue goes on summer holiday (23 NM; 5.25 hours) …

    Also, Rogue is the featured “centenarian” in the UK’s February 2023 Classic Boat magazine:
