Album

Six Months in a Leaky Boat is a single from New Zealand art rock group Split Enz's album Time and Tide. It was written by Tim Finn and released as a single in 1982. The song is a reference to the time it took pioneers to sail to New Zealand hence the reference to Aotearoa and The Tyranny of Distance - a history by Geoffrey Blainey, and a metaphor that refers to lead singer Tim Finn's nervous breakdown. Split Enz - Six Months In A Leaky Boat. I just spent six months in a leaky boat Lucky just to keep afloat.
