Sale of West Coast dredging ship 'beginning of end' for harbour

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 1 September 2017

West Coast dredging ship Kawatiri has been used to keep the local port open, but now the Buller District Council has decided to sell it; and one councillor says that decision is the beginning of the end for the harbour. The Kawatiri has laid idle since the cement manufacturer Holcim left Westport a year ago and the Buller District Council had decided to sell it.
