ALLENESSA

Post my trip to the Lake Rotiti Classic & Wooden Boat Parade early this year I was sent the above photos of Allenessa from her new (it) owner – Sam Winckel. Sam purchased her last year & is completing a full refit on her. She was built in 1971 & won the best boat at the 1971 Epiglass Boat Show.

The work included wiring & electronics upgrade & full repaint. Hopefully Sam reads ww &  he can tell as what powers her.

Harold Kidd Input – ALLENESSA was the subject of a full boat test in Sea Spray of August 1971.She was a Dick Hartley “New Escort” design built by Ray Fink at Tamahere. Her original power was a Chrysler V8 with a Penta outdrive.

  2. Our family owned Allenessa for a few years late 70’s early 80’s, and yes some interesting stories to tell, including being airborne over the Pataua bar.
