Delta out of her depth for high­way haul

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

A piece of Waikato his­tory made a stop in Mata­mata last week.

The inim­itable Waipa Delta spent a day parked on Tower Rd, be­fore head­ing to its fi­nal des­ti­na­tion in Taupo.

Orig­i­nally based in Hamil­ton, the replica pad­dle­boat sailed to the warmer wa­ters of Auck­land in 2009.

Now re­lo­cated to the Great Lake, the Delta made it to Thames by wa­ter and com­pleted the rest of the jour­ney by road.
