GEISHA

The above photo of Geisha, is tagged ‘Bay of Islands’ & is ex Lew Redwood’s fb page.

The only reference I have to a Geisha is a WW comment by Harold Kidd back in June 2013, referring to Charlie Palmer’s 1915, 36’ launch Adelaide III, that was sold & renamed Geisha – not sure if it is the same boat – HDK?

Harold Kidd Input – There were several GEISHAs, possibly two in the Bay of Islands. This one is a game fishing launch run by A.S. Frost of Russell in the period 1926-1930. She is very likely the GEISHA brought North from Auckland by J. Hodgson as early as 1907. I don’t think she’s the Collings & Bell ADELAIDE III which I’m sure had a tuck stern. Will check tonight as I have her lines.
