' Brett Subritzky Waiheke Shipping director ONE of the two vehicular ferry companies servicing Waiheke Island is out of action after its last vessel was deregistered early yesterday morning. The move left customers of Waiheke Shipping high and dry after the 10am sailing of the HA Subritzky from Ken- nedy Pt to Half Moon Bay proved to be its last. Deregistration was the last step in the sale of the boat to new Fijian owners and means it is now illegal for the ship s masters to continue sailing it in New Zealand waters. Waiheke Shipping director Brett Subritzky has been waiting for confirmation of the sale from Maritime New Zealand and says he was aware it could happen at any time . The vessel was bought by Mr Subritzky s father Basil in 1983 and was sold to Ryan Shipping Ltd in 2004. Mr Subritzky says he leased it back six years ago and has been providing an alternative vehicular ferry service to SeaLink under the name Waiheke Shipping ever since. The vessel is capable of shipping 32 cars or up to four fully laden trucks and trailers. Waiheke Shipping went into receivership in 2009 but had been trying to operate as a going concern so it could be sold as such, Mr Subritzky says. However the HA Subritzky, the last of four vessels in the company s fleet, was sold by Event raises cash for Ollie's operation Star of his own show: Four-year-old Ollie Davies enjoys a horse ride at Let's Hear it for the Boy. By GILL ALCOCK We re there were the words proud dad Gary Davies said when he heard how much had been raised at Sunday s Let s Hear it for the Boy event. It was all for his pro- foundly deaf son Ollie. The event at Wild on Wai- heke saw more than 600 adults and children enjoy live music, children s activi- ties and even a Zumba class. The total was $24,000 with $18,000 raised from the silent auction alone. A painting by ex-Waiheke resident Mike Morgan brought in $5000 and an earthworks package was won with a bid of $8000. Added to donations from the Jassy Dean Trust, Hope Op Shop, Waiheke Rotary, volunteer fire brigade and members of the public plus Mr Davies sausage sizzles it is enough for four-year-old Ollie to undergo his second cochlear implant operation. Mr Davies is already discussing dates with Ollie s surgeon. In his speech on the day Mr Davies said $40,000 was the cost of the equipment and operation that would allow Ollie to be like all other children and take on the challenges of his choice. I want to give my son the same opportunity that other kids have so that he can stand alongside them as an equal. Wild on Waiheke co- owner Rob Webb says the generosity of people was amazing. Everyone was so giving -- even tourists who were just visiting the cafe were adding $20 to their bill as a donation.
