Logan Brothers’ yard (2nd of 2)

Logan Brothers’ yard

Against the shed in Logan Brothers’ yard are some patiki centreboarders. In the background is the steamer, Kapuni, built for the Coastal Steamship Company. Although they prided themselves on their keel yachts, Logan Brothers built a wide variety of boats. This scene was photographed in 1898.
