The Wahine shipwreck is probably New Zealand's most well known shipwreck with 53 people losing their lives in the 1968 wreck off wellington. In the odd chance that you are not familiar with the Wahine just google it.

There were survivors though and 566 people survived. Lifeboat #6 made it to shore in the rough seas overloaded but full of survivors.

This is the license plate from the lifeboat #6 that relayed some survivors to shore. In the rough seas and landing from Wahine to shore lifeboat #6 was damaged beyond repair and abandoned but it did do the job that it was designed to do and the overloaded lifeboat broughtbsurvivors ashore.

Thick and weighs 840 grams. Important part of New Zealand history. Could be bought for any museum in New Zealand or as a important relic in any relic collection. Please click here to ask a question
