photos & details ex Kevin Peet
Kevin sent in the above photos yesterday of Zircon & it got bumped to the top of the ww posting list for the simple fact that he has done a top chop & lost the flybridge 🙂
When purchased, a few months ago, she very run down & Kevin has wasted no time in giving her a make over.
Not a lot is known about Zircon & her name is probably not her as launched name.
She is 34′, powered by a 6 cyl. Perkins & built with glue edged carvel planks. Her previous owner understands that she was built in Whangarei in 1959 as a commercial fishing boat & based in Coromandel.
Prior to Kevin’s purchase, home was W Pier at Westhaven.
Todays challenge woodys is can we shed some light on Zircon’s past? – design, builder, previous owners / names etc
Photos below are as purchased
20-04-2016 – Roger Turnbull sent in the three photos of Zircon below. One of them shows the coamings and flying bridge as it was when Roger purchased her.
