What of Endeavour ships?

LETTER

I am singularly impressed by the explanation on the GDC website for the design of the new Awarua, GDC building.

I particularly like the idea of throwing one’s troubles in the waka, but wonder, in my case, if a litter control officer might be lurking.

The concept of the name as “Awa” meaning pathway, and “rua” meaning the repository of knowledge, is uplifting. One sincerely hopes that the latter part will come to fruition. I suppose you must start as you intend to go on.

I note also from my latest “handout” re Te Ha, that a significant sculpture is to go down by the new bridge across to the sacred rock site.

I wonder if it is timely to ask what is the status of the Endeavour ships, which were taken down some time ago? I seem to remember there was some financial constraint with regard to their possible refurbishment and reinstatement.

Most of the European side of the navigations fiasco gets automatically thrown on to the backburner, or left to rot forever, Ron . . .
