Skipper: Bill Moe
This boat was launched in Wellington, NZ in 1952 and in 1957 made memorable return voyage across the Tasman Sea from New Zealand to Australia. All kauri hull, decks, and cabin. All 1 and 3/8 inch, copper riveted, Australian gum wood frames. Designer is Athol Burns. Length is 26ft on deck, beam is 8ft 10inch, displacement is 7.5 to., 3-cylinder md2020 Volvo diesel.
I bought this boat online, unseen in 2011 and had it shipped back to Canada. Since my ownership, I have replaced all glass, heaters, cook stove, new electronics, and built a new mast since freighting the existing mast was a headache. I kept all the beautiful fittings, the boat is a pure joy and to my eye the prettiest on the coast.
