DICK DANIEL’S BOAT
photo & details ex Ken Rickets
This launch is not really an unknown as it belonged to an engineer friend of Ken Rickett’s father. Dick Daniels was a fairly elderly gentleman at the time he owned her, c.1946-48.
She had a nearly new Meadows 4 cyl petrol engine which Daniels had installed c.1946. She was 32 ft x 8ft 6, probably built circa late 1920s early 1930s.
Ken never knew the boats name or even if she had one, any input on her would be appreciated.
In the background is Juliana, the Rickett’s family launch. anchored next door. Ken took the photo in Matiatia c.1947.
