If the planned Endeavour replacement goes ahead I Don't Think it be named Wellington since that names already in use on The 2nd of 2 Protector/Otago Class OPV already in service. Its more then likely to be possibly named either Waikato, Southland or Taranaki as these haven't been used yet or they transfer the name Endeavour over to its replacement as that names always been traditionally used for its support ships that have been in RNZN service in the past.

I didn't check if the name was already in use nower days, i just took is together with theire LPD because these two names served together as the leander class frigates ,so please dont mind the name then.

Looks pretty nice. A far better investment than that civilian ferry they call the Canterbury.
