Mystery Launch 13-10-2019

La Paloma

I have Raindance hauled out at the moment for her annual health check and bottom tickle, so todays story is short and sweet. Too busy working. Thanks to Nathan Herbert for the photo link 🙂
The first person that can correctly ID the above launch wins a WW T-shirt – normal story – entries via email to waitematawoodys@gmail.com
The winner of the comp to ID the launch is Colin Boyld. Who must share the same sleeping hours as me – 5.05am entry. Colin, email me your postal address & t-shirt size. Well done 🙂
Whats happening with Connie V 
Woody Chris Laird sent me the photo below of Connie V ‘festering away” on the hard at Panmure. Anyone know who owns her and if there is a plan?
I seem to recall that the late Tom the Torch bought her or did he on sell her, or have I got the wrong CV??

  1. I only know her origins. She was called Connie V after the owners wife. He was a Mr Valentine. I first saw her about 1950 in Auckland. The Valentines were friends of the Wrightsons who owned the Royal Falcon.
