ORARI II (MYSTERY LAUNCH 11-03-2016)
photos ex Robin Elliott
Another mystery launch post & if they are all as cool as this one, there will be more 🙂
Robin has sent me a collection of launch photos from the Whangarei Cruising Club Collection, as far as Robin knows, all are from the 1940’s early 1950’s & and were taken by Palmer Photography in Whangarei (1910-1999). Most by the late Graeme Palmer and possibly some older ones by his father.
So woodys who can ID this one? ITS ORARI II
Update from Robin Elliott
Orari II was featured in Sea Spray August 1960 when owned by Harry Julian. While I see similarities in the hull, the cabin (with venetian blinds – Luxaflex no doubt) is quite different, having been pushed forward right to the mast.
Does this still match with your opinions of those original pix being Orari II?
