photos & details ex Paul Drake
Paul has advised that the above launch has arrived at Lake Taupo within the last few weeks. Now if we believe the name plate she is a 1927 Colin Wild boat. Paul commented that its a nice touch having the build year and builder’s name being advertised, but it would be nice with they spelt the name correctly (Wild not Wilde) 😦
Paul believes that if her provenance stacks up, she is probably the only Col Wild on the lake.
The name plate states her home anchorage was Mahurangi, so what more do we know about Princess & how did she end up on the lake ?
