MYSTERY LAUNCH 16-03-2016
photo & details ex Robin Elliott
Another photo sent in by Robin ex the Whangarei Cruising Club collection. Photo most likely from the 1940’s > early 1950’s period and taken by Palmer Photography in Whangarei (1910-1999). Most by the late Graeme Palmer and possibly some older ones by his father.
In the photo the crane was from ‘S.G. Bignall, Ph 2802, Whangarei’, also the gent holding the stern line has only one arm (no left arm) so maybe that helps in ID’ing the launch?
A little bonus viewing today – check out the latest (March-April) on-line addition of the USA ‘Classic Yacht’ magazine. Lots of great motorboat & yachts featured in this issue – link below
