Blast from the Past

NZ Herald, 5 November, 1913
Schooner on mud banks. Accident at Helensville.
The schooner Houto, when leaving yesterday for Whangape missed the channel beyond Mount Rex and struck on the mud bank. It was expected that she would get clear at high water today, but this was not accomplished. The tides are now diminishing, and it seems likely that she will have to be towed off by river steamers.
