  1. Approx 1968 , She was in charter working out of the Bay of Island game fishing . Owner was Mars Cardon . Many a happy day I had on her , She is a top sea boat , just sat like a duck in a following sea . At that stage all the top deck work had not been done , So good to see her again and her related boat . Jim Broadbent . Kerikeri
