Margaret Joy MYSTERY LAUNCH 02-04-2016
photo ex Robin Elliott
Today’s photo is another that Robin has sent me from a collection of 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.
The distinctive placement of the porthole window on the cabin sides might help ID her, she also appears to have a good turn of speed.
The Woollacott website http://www.woollacott.org.nz/ lists both a Ghost & a Wolf, the images of Ghost appear to be a smaller vessel. No photos of Wolf.
So woodys who can ID this one? The boat was ID’ed by Nathan Herbert as Margaret Joy
Mondays ww post will be a trip report from James Dreyer (Laughing Lady) on the Palm Beach International Boat Show, in James words “I have kept the focus on wooden or partially wooden craft, with a little American excess and muscle thrown in for good measure.” – Make sure you check it out.
