Object detail

Cork and canvas life ring, from TIRI II, which was used to broadcast Radio Hauraki from 1968 to 1970. Painted red and white with black lettering.
The vessel was referred to as TIRI II by the radio station crew but it appears the registration was never changed from MV KAPUNI (1909). It is likely this lifering was previously on MV TIRI, the first Radio Hauraki vessel.
