Title:Sailing Scow "Echo" 100 Years Old
Article Abstract:ECHO was a hold-scow, built in 1905 at Te Kopuru near Dargaville. She had a full set of fore-and-aft sails, with top-sails and auxiliary engines which were necessary for river navigation. In 1920 Eckford and Company of Blenheim bought ECHO and then operated her between Wellington and Blenheim for the next 45 years.
