SOUTHERN ISLES – A Peak Down Below
Thanks to her trademe listing (ex Ian McDonald) we get to have a peek down below on the 36’ Southern Isles.
Built by Tom Wells at Wakatahuri, Forsyth Bay, Pelorus Sound & launched in 1953 she has a beam of 10’6” & draws 5’.
Her zoom zoom is via a 127hhp Gardner 6LX.
She was featured on WW before in Dec 2017 – link below, where you will find lots of history from John Wicks.
Update ex Cameron Pollard – photos below show her in 1950, just prior to launching & in work – beaching the ship Matangi.
