Dorothy

DOROTHY
Story & photo ex Andrew Pollard
Built by Chas Bailey in 1929. She was actually launched as Dorothy M (after the original owners young daughter Dorothy Munro) the M seems to have been lost in the mists of time.
Im not sure of all her details and history… Baden and Im sure Harold will know  (Baden sent me this picture and should know more on her.)
It was taken at the sight of the Rewa wreck.
Very well known in the commercial fishing industry…
Currently at Westpark undergoing a re-birth.

  1. Andy Turnwald, her owner in 2000, told me that she was built out of the kauri taken from the demolished tram barns at Richmond Road. A very beautiful ship.
