The name Murihiku

21 May 2012
Deborah
The boat name was Yamuy which is cat in the native Puerto Rico Taino language. It has now been registered as a New Zealand boat NZ1898 and renamed Murihiku. Murihiku means “tail of the bird” or “last joint in the tail” (bird or fish) in Maori and was the name of my father’s boats. He named them after a boat sailed by his grandfather’s brother that represented Southland in national competitions.

In the photo taken when they were competing in Wellington in 1921 he is the one second from the left. I haven’t got any photos with me of either of Dad’s two Murihiku’s, can any of the family send one? I have taken one off the net but I don’t know if its Dad or the new owners.

Ange is giving me tutelage to get the correct Maori pronunciation but I am not sure it wouldn’t be more culturally correct to use the Southlander’s pronunciation!
