Mystery Launch 08-09-2017
Last year I was sent the above photo by Ken Ricketts, who obtained the photo of the bridge-decker from a Mrs Carol Stewart. The background around the photo is a little hazy so I’m asking the WW readers for their input.
Ken is confident the boat is Leone, as he says an old friend, Ray Bailey, owned a similar looking vessel in the 1970’s. Back then she did not have the coamings as seen in the photo fitted.
Ken tagged the photo ‘Leone – owned by Merv Cunningham c.1988’. Via a friend (Dennis Ross), I knew a Merv Cunningham around that time & I recall he owned a launch, but believe it or not I was a yachty back then & did not pay much attention to motorboats, so I do not recall what she looked like.
So woodys, anyone know the vessel & her past?. Also what became of her?
