photo ex Pam Cundy
The photos of Nancy Belle above were taken by George Emtage & Pam Cundy at Great Barrier Island.
Pam believes that she may have been built at the Whangateau Traditional Boat Yard by the Greenwoods. To my untrained eye there are some similarities to Awatere, which was built by Greenwoods at WTB.
Any woodys able to confirm this & or supply more details on her ?
UPDATE: Hawke-eye Nathan Herbert ID’ed Nancy Belle as Siren (below) – featured already on ww https://waitematawoodys.com/2014/07/12/siren-2/
Now this has to be a great example how a vessel can visually ‘change’ when her varnished coamings are painted 😦
Update from Pan Cundy
Pam told me she thought Siren might have been a Greenwood because Siren looks so much like the image below that Howard G sent her some years ago. She has subsequently heard that this was boat was built by Howard for the Ray brothers.
