Today’s photo comes to use via the Andrew Donovan collection, I’m sure a lot of you will recognise the launch, but my grey matter is fried after reviewing and filing 50,000+ photos since starting WW 🙂

  1. In my eyes, A most beautifully proportioned bridge decked launch. A great image.
    Thanks ww.com

    26-08-21 Input ex CMcM – In my eyes the subject launch reminds me of the Lady Shirley prior to having the big sponsons / beltings added. These were added when or while she was the Police Launch. Looks to me like War time and she is guiding the ship through a mine field.

  3. Hiya, I’m casting around for a pond yacht for my (almost!) 9yr old grandson. His parents have just bought a property near the shallows at the nth end of Te Atatu. I reckon it’d be an ideal place for such a trick. Have you got any followers/ friends who might put me in the right direction? Once he’s into it, I’ll plan (with him, I hope) to build something out of my old workshop. Hoping you can help, Ben Tombs
