Marriann

MARRIANN

Not 100% sure of the boat name / spelling, but this very salty speed boat just popped up on Rob Thomson’s fb. Rob commented that she was built c.1958 by his father and was named after his mother and middle sister.

Powered by a Mercury Ford V8, she must have had a good turn of speed.
Does anyone know what became of the boat?


MY GIRL – Scale Model

Seems Jason Prew’s very quick launch – My Girl, is a popular woody with the model makers. We have already seen one radio controlled My Girl on WW (link below) and last week a very kind gent dropped a very accurate model in at the Slipway Milford for Jason. Jason slapped some undercoat on her and popped in a RC unit and next thing sea trials are under way 🙂

Now off to the paint shop for the final TLC

  1. There are some very large mullet in the lower reaches of the north shores ‘Ganges” -just saying Jason, and they will eat almost anything.
