Strait Crossing: The Ferries of Cook Strait Throug
by Victor Young

ISBN: 9781877418112
PUBLISHER: transpress
FORMAT: Hardback
PAGES: 256
DIMENSIONS: 210mmX275mm

The cargo and passenger vessels recorded in this book have provided regular and scheduled services across Cook Strait since the late 19th century, establishing and maintaining the vital link between Wellington and the South Island ports of Lyttelton, Picton and Nelson. Many will forever be a part of our nation's history. Most are forgotten in time. Described are the ships that, year after year, in war and peace, carried our commerce and families between north and south. They were our maritime 'household names'. Ships like the Tamahine, Hinemoa, Aramoana, the giant Kaitaki, and the pioneering Straitsman are among those featured in text and photos. Profiles recall crew and passenger memories, outline the ports, detail the historic 'boat trains', visit the loss of the Wahine and acknowledge the assistance of the harbour radio stations. Lavishly illustrated with many historic scenes, documents and attractive portraits of the ships - often in colour - this book is an essential addition to the library of anyone interested in seafaring and New Zealand's maritime heritage.
