An Update on the Pollard Fleet

Cameron P recently sent me the above photo of Rakanui being re-launched. There is a great WW story at the link below on her life, click & enjoy.

Cameron also mentioned that 2018 was the year that Vesper gets her time in the sun & will be getting a lick of paint & a 4LK Gardner installed. Let me know Cameron if you needs some Uroxsys 😉 . Read more on her past on this. link

He also sent me the photo below with the caption “No point hanging around” – took me a few clues to ID the launch, but when he said ‘100 years old & built in Devonport’, it was easy – photo taken from the rear of Aumoe, the 1913, Tom Le Huquet launch. Zoom zoom is from a Ford diesel. Cameron must have it tricked up to create that turn of speed, certainly faster than in the old days photo.
