Photo: JASON OXENHAM Rower Shaun Quincey's boat the Tasman Trespasser 2 is set to take pride of place at the Voyager New Zealand Mari- time Museum. The museum has purchased the boat thanks to a grant from the First Sovereign Trust. It took Quincey 53 days to row from Australia to New Zealand in March -- a feat matched only by his father Colin, who rowed from New Zealand to Australia in 1977. Quincey says it's fitting the boat is going to the museum, which also houses his father's boat, the Tasman Trespasser. I've always wanted it to go to the museum. I guess if it was going overseas it would be a lot more emotional. It's really nice it's going to a place in my own backyard.'' To mark the occasion, Quin- cey rowed the boat for the final time from Devonport to the museum on the Auckland waterfront earlier this week. He says the 30 minute trip brought back a few memories of his voyage across the Tas- man, including losing com- munication with loved ones after capsizing. Quincey's next challenge could be organising a race across the Tasman with crews of two or four people. He says it would've made a big difference having someone there with him on the voyage. There's only so much of your own company you can take.'' Maritime Museum chief executive Murray Reade says it's fantastic to have the boat at the museum. Part of what we represent is voyaging and an adventur- ous spirit. The ability to have the boat here is a tribute to that spirit.'' To view the original Tasman Trespasser and the Tasman Trespasser 2 visit the mu- seum, on the corner of Quay St and Hobson St. Entry is free to Aucklanders if they show their library card or rates bill.
