Jack Raha at Launching Ceremony, Ohawe
Jack Raha stands before a large crowd at a launching ceremony for a boat powered by a Dodge 4 cyl. motor at Ohawe. He wears a light-coloured jacket and looks towards the camera. Another man, wearing a light-coloured shirt and suspenders stands on the extreme right hand side of the photograph. He is partially cropped by the frame. The crowd is gathered beneath a steep hill. Many in the crowd wear hats including one man wearing what appears to be a policemen's hat. Further groups of people watch the event from the hillside. The boat being launched proved to be very unreliable and prone to breaking down. The crew of the boat spent several nights stranded at sea living on raw fish and the boat ended up wrecked on a beach.
