About Us

Douglas Walker, Author

Since he was a young boy, boats have spoken to Douglas.


When he moved to New Zealand, the William C Daldy talked to him, and Douglas had to tell the tug’s story. Douglas now lives in the American Rocky mountains, and sails all over the Americas, but his heart remains with the people and boats of the Waitemata Harbour.
