Meloa – A Peek Down Below
I was sent a link to the amazing collection of photos above of the 1961 Miller & Tunnage ex work boat Meola by woody Peter Mence. Owner Iain Forsythe has had Meola for 4+ years and in this time he has used his eye & hand skills to turn her into one of the saltiest boats in our woody fleet. Check out the link below for more photos and detail
Input for Harold Kidd – Her first skipper was Charlie Miillett who served his time as a boatbuider with Chas Bailey & Sons, went to Tauranga boatbuilding and became a top skipper in the game-fishing fleet there.
