Gulf Map

To celebrate the end of the
pirate era, Hauraki’s land-
based announcers were
flown to the boat for the final
broadcast.
At 10pm on Monday June 1
1970 the transmitter was shut
down and the boat began her
voyage back to Auckland.
Tragically, announcer Rick
Grant was seen falling over-
board and despite hours of
searching he was never found.
