Boat Sheds on the north-west side of Pauatahanui Inlet, Porirua Harbour.

Until recently some people where extending and rebuilding these buildings and turning them into homes, and living there.
The Council put a stop to this (as governments do)

It is impossible now to get Resourse Consent to use these buildings as a residence.
