the 'Arahura' inter-island ferry sails for the last time

The Danish-built ferry Arahura for service between Wellington and Picton arrived in December 1983  -- after nearly 32 years, 52,000 crossings and 13 million km, she sailed for the last time today to Picton.  Stuff story and video.

For comprehensive details on this and every other Cook Strait ferry between Wellington, Lyttelton, Picton and Nelson, the book Strait Crossing: the ferries of Cook Strait through time is your only reference.
