Transcribed from the New Zealand Herald, 19 January 1884, Page 4



The ship Turakina, which anchored in the Rangitoto Channel on Thursday night (as notified in our issue of yesterday, came up the harbour yesterday morning, and anchored off the Queen-street Wharf. She came up in charge of Pilot Sainty, and just after rounding the North Head touched on the mud bank there, where she held by her keel for about half an hour, but came off without sustaining any damage. It was low water at the time, and the vessel was making a small stern board, but before she could fill on the foreyard, she touched, as mentioned above.
