PAL O’ MINE

Today’s post is a little piece of eye candy for Jason Prew & Nathan Herbert with the hope that it will speed up work on their projects – ‘My Girl’ & ‘Lucinda’. The launch (#72) above is Pal O’ Mine, built by the Tercel Bros in 1924, a hard chine design probably lifted from Rudder/Motor Boating magazine e.g William Hand. Powered by a 125bhp engine she certainly had some zoom zoom.
Do we know what became of her?
