photo & details ex John Pryor
Mystery Girl was recently bought up from Invercargill by Reuben Zylstra of Kawau Cruises, the cabin top was cut off in order to fit her into a container.
Reuben has no hard facts as to her history but has been told that she worked as a fishing boat out of Bluff for a number of years. The number T.B.C.691 on my bow must mean something to the ‘Work Boat’ guys?
Anyone able to shed any light on her history ?
The photo below was taken in 1999 by Chris Rabey, sent in by Russell Ward, that shows you what she looked like when fishing. She would have been converted to private use sometime ago, as her original BF8188 rego was allocated to another boat, Loyal, and when Chris looked at a photo of that one, it was no resemblance to Mystery Girl.
