  1. I can cretainly relate to the flags & gin, — I have vivid memories of them, — knew the boat & owner well in the later 40s & 50s — brings back many happy memories. — A.B. also owned Chandler & co Ltd billboard poster printers Manukau Rd Royal Oak


  2. I hear she is back in the water again after the latest repairs. Recently seen at Westpark Marina


  3. I have fond memories of the era when Arnold Baldwin (UBS Directories) owned her. It was always white ducks and flags down when the gun went off at sunset. Lots of gin before and after. Happy days in the RNZYS,when to leave the ensigns up all night would result in a letter from the Commodore no less; as one high ranking lawyer found out with a lot of mirth to us all.
