Its not often you come across a launch in this condition that has escaped the hands of the wood butcher.
Ethel Claire is on a pile mooring in the Whau River & crying out for a cockpit cover thence she is sitting a little bow down.
Interested to know about her early days & how she got to be in this state. Would be a brave project but subject to whats been happening with all the rainwater, still do-able.
Sorry for the late post today – post the overnight storm, the Principality of Devonport awoke to no power 😦 The fire was lit & the old kerosene lamp fired up, all good with the males but the females not too happy with a cold shower 🙂 Still out at 12.45pm …….
