White Cloud Movie – Leaving The Shed + Launch Day


White Cloud Movie – Leaving The Shed + Launch Day

Today’s post is based around a movie of the launch White Cloud, being shoe-horned out of the Supreme Craft shed at 1a Summer St., Ponsonby & making its way to Fodenway Motors, Penrose for engine fit out. And then the final leg to launching at Panmure in June 1965. The movie was filmed by her original owner, Len Buckby & shared with ww by his daughter Pam Mare via Ken Ricketts.

  1. Absolutely fantastic to see such a beautiful launch going through it`s transport, engine fitout and successful launching all in one short movie. To then see the launch cutting beautifully through the water during sea trials is also wonderful to see. Cheers.
