I was sent (in fact 10 times….) the above photo of the launch Parani by Gary Chaplin who is trying to track down the where-abouts of this motor launch.
All Gary knows is that she was originally based in Lyttelton.
Gary commented that Parani was once owned by his bosses (Alan Martin , of Martin Hydrulics. CHCH) father. I have asked Alan for the fathers name – if I get it I will add to the story, in the meantime do we know anything about the launch Parani?
