Water Gipsy > Connie V > Robyn Gae
I was mooching around Westhaven Marina on Raindance last weekend & spied ‘Robyn Gae’, sadly looking very tired & crying out for a new owner to take her over. So sad I did not even take a photo 😦
There is a very well documented history of her by Harold Kidd & Martin Turnwald on ww at the link (blue) here. https://waitematawoodys.com/2015/09/10/robyn-gae/
The photos above of her when she was named ‘Connie V’ are from the Tudor Collins collection at the Auckland Museum.

Hi, My Dad, John Turnwald, has decided reluctantly to relinquish his ownership of the classic woody. Robyn Gae.
Do you know of anyone who would like to give her the pampering she deserves?
John’s phone = 827 3538. Please negotiate directly with him.
