|3146||1938-1940||General notes.||The punt was located on the Kawarau approx 700m upstream from the junction of the Kawarau and Clutha rivers at Cromwell. It was below the Victoria Hotel in Achil Street, Cromwell. It was a clinker built double ended former dredge service boat, tethered to a steel wire spanning the Kawarau river above high water mark. The punt was installed by the Holm syndicate to gain access to their Cornish Point gold mining claim. It was used to ferry men and materials to their mine, until operations were suspended.|
