Where Is Idler
During the week WW was contacted by Brian Keene a previous owner of Idler ensuring as to the where about of the boat and who owns her. I seem to recall she was on trademe in the last few years.
Brian owned the boat for approx. 15 years in the 1980’s > 1990’s, the top photo was taken during this period. As a result of an upcoming relocation Brian is cleaning out some of the items he has acquired over the years, one of those items is the original Fred Parker plans of Idler that Salthouse Bros used to build her in 1970 for Jim Faire.
The 2nd photo (marina) comes to us ex Scott Taylor.
So woodys – where is she and who owns her? Would be good to ensure the plans find the right home.
Update ex Cameron Pollard – Idler is berthed at BBYC. Owned and kept in top condition by Derek Goddard and his wife. If anyone knows Derek, please ask him to contact me on email@example.com
Hi, was this boat in Hobart in the early 1980s? I remember going ona friends boat the ‘Idler’ and it looks very simialr… It was a long time ago!
Think that she is still at Bucklands Beach Yacht Club Marina
