Re-located from Aotea wharf, this has been preserved as a reminder of bye-gone era. Erected in 1998, it had to be hastily dismantled in 2002 when a vessel collided with one of the supporting legs. Originally set at 90 Deg to the dock-side, the local winds broke it free of the 'slewing locks' and set it at the angle it is today. (Easier to work with nature than against it).
